Denny the Dragon that is! I stumbled upon this blog and had to buy a few of her cute stamps. When I saw him and his cute little heart shaped smoke puffs I knew I had to have him!! The stamps came from the UK and they arrived amazingly fast. I can't wait to order more.
I decided to try my hand at watercoloring again. I haven't watercolored, oh in about a year. I used a technique that I recently saw where you use a marker and outline the image then use your water brush to blend. Super easy and some nice results. (Although I do need some more practice!) I'm in a monthly card swap so I'm going to send this out to someone today.

This week's CAS Challenge was to use a sketch. I had just received these cute Sweet Pea stamps by Pink Cat Studio so I just had to ink up this cute little baby!! I stamped the image a few times and used my Copics. Then I added dimensionals to pop up baby's head, legs and feet. I had her sit on the ribbon with her legs hanging off. Isn't that so cute?!! I saw Jenn Muraoka do that with one of her images last week.

Hello and Happy Sunday! I haven't had much time to stamp lately so this morning I put the girls on auto drive and snuck into my craft room for an hour. I wanted to start on one of my Swaps that my friend Kash is hosting on SCS. It calls for paper piecing on your card. I chose a very neglected Rubber Romance stamp. I love this image and it's perfect for paper piecing! I stamped it first on some green SU patterned paper, then some Chatterbox Patterned Paper. I used my newly acquired Copics (wahoo!) and I made her legs and dress 3-D. At the last moment I decided to try and make the ribbon on the image a real life ribbon. What a fit that gave me!! I'm not sure if I like the final look of it though. And I'm quite certain that only the Hostess will be getting this Special Edition card. ;)
