I embossed the white cardstock and then lightly sponged the raised portions. I then masked those areas off, leaving only the center rectangle and sponged a bit heavier around the edges - it looks almost like another layer of apricot, doesn't it? I stamped the Stampin' Up sentiment in apricot. When I got done, the corners were begging for a little attention, so I punched them with a decorative corner punch - and VOILA! Done deal. I'm definitely going to have to give this folder a few more cards to snuggle up next to.
This next card was made with an image I received through SplitcoastStampers' Wish-RAK club. He was colored with Copics and then I used a homemade scallop cloud template to sponge some bashful blue for the sky. I took off a circle punched post it that I masked for the sun and then used the reverse template to sponge a little sunshine in. This was for an early sketch challenge, so I used 2 different designer papers reflecting water and bubbles before adding knots of blue satin ribbon. This is where I wanna be ALL SUMMER LONG!
For this little fella, I was practicing feathering with my Copics (notice his wings). If you've looked at my past cards, you may see an abundance of cards made with purples and greens - one of my favorite go-to color combinations. The image is from the Digi Shack and the sentiment is from My Graphico.
Uh Oh! Purple/Green alert ....
This little beauty, Coriander, is from Sweet November Stamps. I got her from my friend Jenny over at Paper Jewels . I colored her in with Copics and then painted some Shimmerz Angel Wings over her wings to give them a shimmer which you probably can't see from the picture.
I'm starting to realize that I'm about as fickle as you can get - my Most Favorites seem to change with the next stamp that comes out. I shouldn't complain too much, though. It's a fabulous outlet and I guess beats drinking at the bar every night, lol.
Thanks for stopping by!
