I did get to stamp yesterday...yipppeee!!! I played along with the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast since it would work perfectly with my new Elzybells.
I stamped the Spreading Peace Angel in Brilliance Graphite Black on Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor Paper. This stuff is soooo smooth and yummy...it's a dream to watercolor on! Anywho, I colored her with my waterbrushes and reinkers and added Stickles to her wings and halo. After I matted the image onto my Brown Prism cardstock, I decided to sponge the edges with Close to Cocoa ink to soften them, and then stitch around the edges with my sewing machine.
A strip of this Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper was hiding in my ginormous stack of patterned paper, and it matched my colors perfectly! So I matted it with brown, and then with a strip of red (sponged with Chocolate Chip to make it a bit darker) with a scalloped edge. Of course I had to stitch that part too! I ran the Baja Breeze panel through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes embossing folder, and then finished it off with a brown mat, three strips of brown Satin ribbon (from the Target Club Wedd section), and finally my circle sentiment popped up on a Prima. The sentiment is from the clear Everyday Greetings set, which is one of my favorites! I love all the cute combinations you can create with it.
Well, that's about it for me today...I'm trying to get caught up from the last few days, so I'll catch ya later! Have a fabulous Thursday!
