I created this card for my cousins wedding celebration.  I love this I brake for stamps heart stamp.  I love it because it is so versatile.  I used the Technique Junkies Newsletter - try that technique - Embossed Colored Pencils.  The sentiment is from Gina K Designs. 
Here is a better shot of the technique which doesn't scan well.  I love the shine.  It adds another level of interest to this clean and simple card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty day!!

Take Me To Paris

I just love this Saturated Canary stamp "Denise"...I think about coloring her in all different ways, hair colors, backgrounds...she is so much fun.

So today I decided to color her up with the no line technique (Krista includes a no line coloring image along with a regular digi image).  The Eiffel Tower is a digital stamp from Make It Crafty.  Zoe has so many cool backgrounds to use with all your stamps.  I masked her off and airbrushed behind her

I used this weeks technique of the week from the Technique Junkies Newsletter called Sponged Ombre Watercolors.  This is a fun and easy technique.

Here are the details on my card...

Stamps:  Saturated Canary, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous, Stampabilities, Gina K Design (sentiment), Make it crafty (Eiffel Tower)

Die Cuts:  Spellbinders, Quikutz

Copics:  Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20  Lips:  R35, 37, 39 Eyes: G09, 14, 12, copic liner  Hair:  E09, E08, YR18, YR14 Clothes: B97, 95, 93, 91 (purse: B93, 91) C00, 01, 02 V17, 15, 12, 000 Boots: C9, 7, 5, 3

Gradiant Sponging

It seems we have had an abundance of death lately.  You can never have enough sympathy cards.  I made this card for my friend that I have known for 39 years.  Her dad passed away earlier this week and I needed a card for her.

I used the Gradiant Sponging technique from the technique junkies newsletter which is this weeks Technique of the Week.  The stamps are from Stampin Up!  I apparently need to clean my scanner...LOL!

Hope you all have a crafty day!
