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!
