Getting Hitched

Isn’t this the cutest wedding car?

I just love this image from the Getting Hitched set from Lizzie Anne Designs.

I colored the image with a combo of Copic markers (car, sky, balloons) and watercoloring with Basic Black Craft ink and an Aquapainter (road).

Beachy Scallops

Scallops, scallops everywhere. I decided to try something a little different. The scallop border was created from the Beach designer paper from Memory Box. It started off as rows of overlapping circles. I cut around the circles to create the scallops. The stamps are from the soon to be released (July 1st) set Hit the Beach from My Favorite Things.

Playing with Stampfest Loot

Roxie’s Sketch challenge today was the perfect layout for a couple of the new stamps that I picked up at StampFest.

I’m also trying out a new CS (Wassua Exact Matte) with the Copic markers. Not sure I like it. It’s got a slight gloss to it and I’m not totally thrilled with the results I’m getting. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but there are some areas in the colored images that have a funny sheen where the brush strokes are. I really think I’ll stick with my Georgia Pacific CS from Walmart for the Copics.

The first card is an image from Rubbernecker Stamp Company (gotta love that name). It came in a full sheet with more stained glass images. I bought a second sheet with more stained glass designs. They had many images to choose from. Lots and lots of funny images. I just had to pick up a “few” more stamps from them… hehe
