As I mentioned a few days ago, outside of a bazillion Christmas cards, I’ve mostly just been using my Copic markers to practice coloring with them. Not much original creativity going on here. Once in a while, though, I feel like completing a card with one of the colored images, which is how I felt yesterday.
I am also competing with my 9-year-old daughter for computer time now, as she has suddenly taken more of an interest in typing, now that she knows she can type her made-up stories into Word instead of hand writing them. I’m glad she’s typing and all, but between her and my husband’s after-hours computer work, I’ve pretty much been shut out of blogland the last few days! LOL.
This is a Sweet & Sassy Stamps image, from the Flowers in Bloom set. I added a bit of a glitter pen treatment to the flowers and the butterfly, so if you look at the close-up photo you may be able to detect a bit of sparkle.
The sentiment is from PTI’s Signature Greetings stamp set. The dark chocolate CS layer is impressed with the Canvas side and the Kraft CS is impressed with the Linen side of the PTI’s Linen/Canvas Impression Plate, though you can hardly see either in the photos. I also edge-inked the Kraft panel with some Tea Dye Distress ink. The wide sheer ribbon is scrunched into place with an SU! brad, atop a small strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and the flowers were fussy cut by hand and are raised with dimensional adhesive.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
