After having so much fun crafting with friends yesterday, my mojo was still flowing so I spent part of the day creating with some of my new stamps. Sorry for the lengthy post but I just had to share my creations with you all! I draw inspiration from you and I'm hoping to inspire others in return!!
This card was created using images from the Hero Arts set called "Friend" that I purchased at Toyrifix from my friend Tammy Hershberger (Stamp Happy). I stamped the circle image with Versamark then did the "poppin pastels" technique using Pan Pastels (artist paste chalks) and cotton balls. After stamping the sentiment & butterfly with Versafine Black and embossing with detail clear ep I used Nestabilities to cut my circles. My background paper is from the DCWV Luxury pack and I have stamped over it with yet another image from this set using India Ink Black. The base card is SU Perfect Plum cardstock and I have done faux stitching using a metal ruler and my Creative Memories fine tip black marker pen. The grosgrain ribbon was a gift from my friend Anita (waving Hi to Anita).
My second card was created using two new Great Impressions stamps I bought in Fort Wayne, IN last week on my way out to Shipshewana. Aren't these duckies cute !!! I colored the image with SU watercolor pencils and the background with blue chalks & a makeup applicator. Here's the other items used:
Papers: Garden Green, Whisper White, SU (flock together) designer paper
Inks: Versafine Black
Accessories: Nestabilities (circles), Creative Memories corner rounder, Colorbok metal dots, crystal effects, SU watercolor pencils, blender pen, blue chalks, makeup applicator
