Good morning. It is a dark drizzly day here in Fredericksburg today, so I decided to play in my crap room. I recently got some prismacolor pencils and this cute little snowman stamp and decided to practice my coloring skills. Verdict? I need some more practice lol!! Ha, not quite sure about his eyes, lol!! I also think my shadowing is a little heavy. Oh well, I will keep practicing. But I did have fun with this cute little image. I added a touch of snow-tex under the image for some added texture. Simple little Christmas card, but one more for my stash :)
Anyway, I am off to run some errands! Have a great day :)
Just popping on with a Christmas card that I made today. I used a new stamp from Penny Black called Jolly Chant. Isn't that a cool background stamp? I embossed the image using white embossing powder and then used my distress inks and my ink blending tool over the entire panel. I added some red rhinestones on the trees at the bottom and adhered it to a kraft card base. Easy peasy!! Have a great day!
Ha, no cards for almost a month and then 2 in one day!! Crazy, lol!! I have another quick little card for you today. I pulled out an older Stampin Up set today and some water color pencils. I need to work on my water coloring skills, lol. I just ordered some prismacolor pencils from amazon on Saturday and they are supposed to arrive today and I can't wait to play with them!!
Anyway, I stamped my flower in watering can archival ink and colored it in. I added a light flick of Heidi Swapp's color shine in tinsel, a strip of pink cs, some twine and popped it up. Using the same set I stamped the damask image using versamark ink and clear embossed it.
Well, I need to go and get ready to go to work. Hopefully I will be back with something new tomorrow!! Enjoy the rest of your day!
I can't believe it is October 1st already!! I also can't believe that I haven't posted here in almost a month!! Anyway, I have a quick little card that I made for yesterday's CAS (clean and simple) challenge over on Splitcoaststampers (check out the link below). The challenge was to use a pinterest photo as inspiration. I am into fall colours right now and I also love the emboss resist technique and my gelato's. So I clear embossed a little background stamp from Hero Arts and then applied various gelato's over the top and blended with my finger. Next I took a baby wipe and blended again and that is when the magic happens!! If you haven't tried this technique with your gelato's, you should give it a go, the results are amazing. I did this technique in my card class last month and the ladies loved it :) I popped the main panel up, as well as my sentiment.
Well, that is it for me right now. Enjoy your day and I will be back soon with more cards to show you!
