My friends Cami and Joy....and my friend Marianne from Copic....have begun a new venture. They recently released their first stamp sets from their brand new company called Our Craft Lounge. Marianne has put her artistic skills to work by illustrating the images, she's such a creative gal. The girls were kind enough to send me a stamp set to work with and I chose this fun little beaver set called Bubs the Beaver. Be sure to navigate around the website for other fun sets and lots of creative inspiration. Congratulations and good luck to my friends!!!
Here's the inside of the card. I printed the script wording off of my computer and stamped the *hard work* using my JustRite stamps from the Times Roman alphabet and a rectangle wood stamper. I love to use computer journaling mixed with hand stamping. It's a quick and fun way to mix and match fonts.
I colored my image in with Copic markers, using the woodsy patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket for inspiration. I wanted the beaver to look like he's been working hard so I gave him some blushed cheeks. All you have to do to achieve this look is to lay down your base color of brown, and then us a lighter blush color to make some splotches. Just hold the sketch tip of the marker in one spot and it will begin to bleed out the darker brown color. Easy peasy but oh so fun!
Well, this busy little beaver has to get back to work! Have a great day everyone!!
