Picture Perfect.....

Hello all,

I have a card to share that I made using Rory, from Kith and Kin Stamp Co.

Not sure if it looks like it or not, but I tried to make it look like this was a frame, with her popping out of it.

I decided to watercolor this image with distress markers, then cut it out.  I popped it up on foam adhesive to make it stand out away from the base of the card.

I added this sentiment, thought it worked well with this card.

Thanks so much for taking a look, please head on over to Kith and Kin Stamp Co. to check out lots of digital stamps offered.

Hope you have a great day.

Sweet.......Geisha Charlie from Little Blue Button Stamps

Summer days are ahead.....toda I am sharing a card using the Sweet Geisha Charlie from Little Blue Button Stamps.

She is the perfect image for all those asian inspired papers and stamps.  I had a lot of fun watercoloring this image as well as the background too.

I first watercolored the image using distress inks, then die cut her using a Spellbinders die and layered it with another coordinating die.  

I am still having so much trouble trying to get the skin/face right....I seem to always get dark lines because I keep going over it, but it you didn't see this close up you might never notice it. =)

The background and the umbrella came from a Stampendous set, just love how it turned out.  Nice to be able to make your own patterned paper some times.  I popped some the image and umbrella on foam dots, then added these flowers...not exactly cherry blossoms, but thought the color went ok.

Hope you enjoy this and head on over to Little Blue Button Stamps to buy this image and so much more.  Olga, the owner is such an amazing artist and her images really are the perfect focal point to any card.

Thanks much, for stopping by.

Kith and Kin Stamps....Ella Ballerina

Hi again with a design team post for Kith and Kin Stamps using the great Ella Ballerina image.

So I have to say that although I may have not done this image justice with my coloring, I feel like it still turned out pretty good.

So I have been trying out different watercolor papers, just for my own knowledge and this one....well you can see it took the bottom of the list.  Just wasn't good at blending and the ink did bleed when I put water on I had to be extra careful and go really light on the color.

But I figured I would pop her up on a card using this speech bubble die from Lawn Fawn.  Also I added some sequins to add a little sparkle and the Happy Birthday die to just finish off the sentiment.

Hope you enjoyed taking a peek.  Head on over to Kith and Kin Stamps for this and so many other great images.

Thanks for stopping by.
