Hello and welcome!
I'm back in the craft cave after a 2 week vacation! I was so lucky to be able to travel to Canada and Alaska with my DH and see some absolutely amazing sites, plus get out of the Texas heat for a while!
Here's just a view of my favorite pics from the trip:
It was a great trip, but it's always nice to be home! So back to the cave I went!
Today, I have a inspirational card for my stash made with the following products:
Unity Sunshine Girl stamp set
Tim Holtz Rays embossing folder and sponge ink applicator
Distress Inks and watercolor brush
Zig Clean Color Brushes
Black Nuvo drops
Black fine line marker
Scissors for fussy cutting
Below, you can see where I cut the image out after stamping it on a piece of watercolor paper that was watercolored with Distress Inks. After cutting the big image, I went back and fussy cut around the edges, which left off all the cool dots and lines from the stamp. So after adhering the girl to the card base, I went back in with a black marker and Nuvo drops to try to recreate the cut off section. I didn't do a very good job, so I got this brilliant idea to put the whole card in my Misti and re-stamp the image directly onto the card. Oops - fail! The bottom right wasn't lined up exactly so it came out weird and looked doubled. I took my black fine line marker and attempted to connect the lines to make them thicker. You can still tell it's weird down there, but I really liked the card so I'm going with it!
Below you can see that I added lots of Zig Clean color markers to the image for the flowers, leaves, her hair and especially her shirt. You can also see the doubled lines before I added the marker.
