Wow, the days just fly by! There is lots going on here. We over here in Petawawa have entered that wonderful period of Spring Cleaning!! Twice a year the trucks will go by and pick up all the large bits of junk that we want to get rid of. It also the time that people go around checking to see what everyone is getting rid of. Sometimes, by the time the truck comes by there is nothing left to pick up. You know what they say...." one man's junk is another man's treasure!". Also I just picked up a baby trailer for the back of my bike. Now this is exciting because that means I can take my fellow with me wherever I want to go. I have come to the conclusion that the less money I give to the gas companies, the happier I will be.
So some new to share, I have decided to step down from my DT position at CCdesign. As you know I have been hinting at a project that I am working on. It is big, I am excited, and I won't be able to share for a few more months. Now I love working with CCdesigns, and I love the fantastic images that Christine comes out with every month. Sadly I don't feel that I can give my all at this time. There is to much on my plate, and I am trying to bring things down to a manageable level. So wish me luck and I hope you will be as excited as me when I can finally say what I have been up to!
OK, so next I have this card that I made over the course of a few days. The image has been stamped and colored since this weekend, and I just placed unto the card today. I usually have a store of pre-colored images that I like to do in my odd minutes of the day. The images are all from Rosie's Roadshow. All I can say is FUN ! I love how you can use them in an infinite amount of scenes. the sky is the limit with these images! I showed the images that I used down below to show you how every image is individual, and it is up to you to mix and match.
stamps: Rosies Roadshow, Norsk Stempelblad ClearStamps
ink: Stewart Superior Burn Umber, Soft Sky, River Rock, Old Olive, Mustard, Tea Dye, Vintage
Paper: SU Marigold Morning, Soft Sky, Fabriano watercolor paper, Chatterbox DP
Other: Stamp-ma-jig, Eclypse paper, Prima flowers, EK Retro flower, dollar store brads, stickles, re-inkers, Twinkling H2O's, Radiant Pearls.
I started with coming up stamping my images on Eclipse paper and cutting out for the masks. Image was decided upon and then stamped using stamp-ma-jig. I colored image using watercolor brushes and re-inkers, then intensified the colors with Twinkling H2O's and Radiant Pearls ( originally made by same company as H2O's, and not made any more but I have left over). Stickles was added to the hearts. The image is so shimmery and lovely, and it is too bad that the camera can't truly capture how it looks. Stay tuned for my next posting when I go through the steps of masking. It is a little more complicated then standard masking.
