Okay, so I promised you a card!
Bf is 6 hours away in a tiny town - on business. So what does that mean for me? Well, it means I got the whole evening to myself & the whole dining room too! I ignored the laundry, I ignored the dishes, I ignored everything except an episode of the Bachelorette! AND I STAMPED!
Its been a while since I've had a chance to really ignore everything & sit down with ink and paper. A few days ago, i showed you a great digistamp, my first, that I got from Pink Cat Studios - and for a great cause!
Don't you just love the image? The little boy & his balloon are adorable! Looking at it, I would have liked to shrink the image just a tad (if I could figure that out), and mount the image on one more layer before mounting it on the card. There are many tutorials out there, and I know its just a matter of doing some playing around. Of course, as you can see from my blog, I'm not terribly computer savvy.
I can't tell you how much I love coloring with Copic markers. They are so smooth & roll over your paper with such ease. I just need alot more practice with my "art eye" and well, alot more Copics... =P I don't have a nice bright red copic yet - so i had to use my SU! markers. And I definately need a variety of skin tones. Well, they'll be on my wishlist.
I finished it off by printing off another image and cutting out his hat & balloon, then mounted it with foam squares. I love this technique for brining just a little something extra to my cards. Its time consuming, but it makes such a difference to the image.
