Hi everyone, are you all knee deep in snow and/or the holiday hustle bustle? I got some major stuff crossed off my list.....Christmas cards done and lots of cookie trays in the freezer today. Still lots more to do so I'm going to post and run. Are you all holding up? Are ya getting stressed? Don't let it get to you...find a good book, stamp for just the fun of it, do a little sewing, drink a little(or large) margarita!!!
Today I have another birthday card to add to my stash. I used Karen Lockhart's pretty Tulip stamp, keeping with my red color scheme that I'm liking right now. I think I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper but I couldn't find the label. I colored the tulips with Copic Markers using the fine tip of the Sketch Markers. For the vase, I colored the vase solid, added a little shading with a darker marker, then used the Colorless Blender to make dots. Very fun technique to use with your Sketch Markers. I then cut and layered my image with Spellbinder's Square and Scallop Square Dies. Sentiments are from Papertrey Ink and I finished off the card with 3 pearl sequin stickers. If you zoom in, you can see that I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the tulips in little droplets. Makes the flowers look like they're wet or dew covered.
Back to my margarita.......(I wish)......have a great day everyone!
