Still around...

Yes, I'm still around!  Wow, time certainly zipped by since I last posted! 
I have been creating only I can't share most of it as yet.  So sorry!
Last weekend I put together a beautiful card for my BIL and wife's anniversary.  Then I forgot to photograph it before I gave it to them!!! oh well.......

So I went searching through my photos for something to share.....

This is a card I created with stamps from Windows and Doors by Artistic Outpost.

I stamped the door with Ranger Espresso.  I added just a touch of color to the flowers and greenery with Copic markers.  I used a waterbrush to pull some of the stamped ink color across the bricks and background around the door.  Espresso is a water based ink so the water in the brush activates it.   A very quick way to add a touch of monochromatic color.

The verse is stamped with Espress also.  I used one of the die templates from Spellbinders Grommet Tags S4-322 to cut the shape.  I cut off the tabs at each end.  I freehand cut a dark brown mat.  The inner color was rubbed on while the paper was still in the die template which creates a border of the original paper color.  I used Antique Linen ink.

A simple and fairly quick card! 

I'm participating in a blog hop on June 2 so I promise there will be a post then!!!   I sure hope to make something else to share before that.  I have Spellbinders projects to complete this weekend.  That has to take priority!

Thanks for visiting! 
Smiles to you!
