Hey, y'all! Happy Saturday! I'm sitting here enjoying the quiet since my boys are with their "granny" going to see a movie. I'm about to head to Stamp Asylum for my Copic Class, but I thought I'd squeeze in a little stamp time first. *grin*
I decided to use this week's Mojo Monday sketch to get me going...what a great one! And I tell you, it's a lot quicker now that I'm building my stash of pre-colored images. You gotta try it!
Veggiebella in Black Stazon on Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor paper and colored her with a waterbrush & reinkers. For the teensy tiny areas, I used a blender pen...much easier! The image was cut and embossed with my Rectangle Nestabilities, then matted with Prism Suede Brown Dark and a Kraft Scalloped Rectangle. I found this Jillibean Soup paper (Thin Zucchini from the Minestrone collection) that complimented my image quite nicely, so I mounted that onto a 5" square of Apricot Appeal sponged with Tangerine Tango. (Apparently all of my card today was based on food?? Weird!) After matting that with more Suede Brown Dark, I added a strip of the same across the card where the two papers came together, and then wrapped some New Leaf Stitched ribbon around it. I finished off the card with some Jillibean Soup Bean Seeds (felt flowers), held together with an antique brass brad. My finished card measures 5 1/4" square.
Well, folks, it's about time for me to get ready and hit the road, so I'm gonna say 'bye for now! Stay tuned...I have some fun stuff for you tomorrow that is a break from my "usual"...I think you will love it!
Have a fabulous Saturday!
