A quick post to share a bit of Spring.
The tulips were stamped with Memento Black ink then colored with Copic Markers. Returning the colored image to my stamp positioning tool (Stamparatus) then restamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder.
My card the technique was inspired by the very talented Yana Smakula.
This card was sent to a very dear friend for her birthday. We rarely get to see each other but I know she is always there.
I hope you are staying home, staying safe, staying healthy, and staying strong.
Spring has sprung; at least from our clocks perspective! I hope wherever you are Spring is starting to emerge.
Today I want to share a very simple baby card. The retired Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper is a subtle background for the adorable Stitched Frame focal point of the footprints.
A little silver thread was looped and added to the DSP (with a small strip of adhesive) before mounting the focal point on Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card.
The footprints and sentiment are from the (retired) First Steps stamp set.
The inside sentiment is also from the First Steps stamp set. A few punched stars tie in the starry sky from the DSP. The envelope was stamped with a design from Simon Says Stamp & CZ Design called Good Mail Day.
Thanks for stopping by!
A quick post today with a birthday card created with SU Broadway Birthday stamp set. This was not a set that was on my early wish list back when it came out however I saw its creative uses and added it to my stash. I am very glad I did.
I love the colors of the Birthday Bonanza DSP. One side has images perfect for young children and the other side more subtle images which I used here.
I hope you are inspired to cut up your DSP and create today.
I loved to color as a kid. It felt like magic when you saw the picture come to life as you colored. It is really no different today except that I have many more mediums to color with than my box of 64 crayons.
I few weeks ago I participated in Kathy Racoosin’s Online Card Class – Coloring Challenge Road Trip. There were so many great tips from this class. So with Kathy kicking off the next 30 day Daily Market Color Challenge today I decided to take on a project.
This African Succulent is from Picket Fence Studios. A larger image is easier to work with to start.
Copic markers used were E50, Y21, Y38, YR09, G21 and YG11. Of course my Colorless Blender was also on hand. I finished things off with my Polychromos color pencils.
Will you join me on this coloring journey? 10 minutes a day is all you need to do.
