I Love Italy!


Today I printed out several copies of The Paper Shelter "Pizza Chef" digi stamp and colored them with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I stamped the sentiment from Newton's Nook's "Newton Dreams of Italy" stamp set in black ink on white and also some with Versamark ink and white embossing powder.  This was my first time to color with my new 150 Prismacolor Pencil set that I bought when Amazon had them on sale.  I really never thought I would own this big set because they are way too expensive, but Amazon had them for $50 something dollars - instead of the normal price which is over $100 dollars!  AMAZING!  It was fun because I had a lot more colors to choose from when I wanted to do flesh tones - yay!  

For my first card above, I used the 1st pizza guy I colored on a panel that I die cut with Wplus9 Sunshine Layers scalloped die, put that on a piece of patterned paper from Gina K Designs "Petite Patterns" paper, and added a fussy cut sentiment that was heat embossed.  Below is my 2nd card, where I cut the pizza guy with a stitched rectangle, added only one tiny row of the black and white paper to 2 sides, added it to a card base, and made the sentiment into a banner.

And for my last card, I made it just like the first card, only put the sentiment at the top.  Here are a few more close up pictures so you can see some details!

This one below (my first card) is the one I will be entering in the:


Thanks for stopping by!
