For this week's Magnolia Vs. Stampavie Challenge, the theme was "Get The Feeling". You were supposed to incorporate texture into your work. Well, I haven't used this stamp in awhile and it reminds me of Jason and I. (I know Jason isn't blond, but I wanted a contrasting hair color, okay! lol!)
I just love their little faces. He looks so nervous! Well for my texture on this card, I decided to create grass out of cut up card stock. I then embossed some of my paper with my cuttlebug swirl folder and added some fabric flowers. I started this card by stamping Lily & Milo - First Love by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie on white card stock and coloring them in with my copics and markers. I added highlights with my gel pen. I then adhered my grass and layered the image on red/orange card stock and lime green card stock. I then layered on card stock and DP to create the card. I wrapped around a piece of blue ribbon and added some flowers with a brown brad in the middle. To balance the card out, I added three blue brads to the corner. I really like how this card turned out. I love all the happy colors and the image is just so cute.
Well, my theme for today has been things I love; shopping, my husband and last but not least I love the snow and winter. I don't actually like being out in the snow, but I love to look at it. I think it just makes everything look so clean and new. When I saw Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge over at Technostamper, I knew the perfect stamp to use.
Doesn't it look like fun!!! I wish I could be on their sled with them!! Anywhoo, I started this card off by stamping Lily and Billy on Sled from Lily and Billy Winter Stamps by Pink Cat Studio on a piece of white card stock. I colored them in with my copics and markers. I then masked them off and used a sponging technique that I adapted from Michelle over at Just Painting Around to create the snow drifts. I ripped a piece of paper and sponged on bashful blue and ballet blue. I then went over the lines with a gray marker and some glitter. I drew in the trees and accented them with my white gel pen. I cut out my image along with a piece of green card stock and a piece of red card stock using my nesties. Following the sketch, I layered on red and blue card stock along with DP. I tied a bow around the bottom and added a snowflake button. To finish the card, I cut out three circles of red, green and blue card stock using my nesties and added two swirls and a snowflake. I really like how this turned out. I am definitely going to have to use this technique again.
Well thanks for stopping by today!! It has been really exciting for me. Thanks for all you wonderful comments and have a great evening!!
