The top card is so elegant and simple yet beautiful! This was a card we made with the three stampsters! The bird is a stamping up stamp and is so very fun to add the focus on your cards.
I loved all of the different colors and elements that give it a color burst! There is another little bird on the inside to greet the card holder and send a message of happy hello! I colored the bird with markers and used white gel pen to put a dot in the birds eye. Then I added the four orange dots on the side and it just seemed to bring the design together. If you do not have a bird there are several beautiful ones in the new Holiday Catty. Look on line and email me what you need! 979-255-0377
The scene stamping is one of my favorite types of stamping. It gives me a feel of true "ARTISTRY"
I love to use different types of inks and paints to color them with. I get the feel of painting with a paint brush! I used copics, and stampin up inks, and daubers and sponges to get the sky and the front path to look like is was watercolored. I masked the sun with a sticky note while I painted the entire card. Then I used a makeup foamy to add the color, next I take a small end of the sponge and add a little streak of brown across the sun as if it is setting behind a cloud. The photo really doesn't give it the full effect but it is so cool in person. The trick is to not try to make your sun or moon look like a circle out of a coloring book! I make it wavey around the edges on purpose. It gives it a more true to life look. The trees, grass, and barn have puff snow on them! They look like they have been dusted with an early snow fall.
I hope this inspires you to get your stuff out and get to making project! Please contact me for the new Holiday stamps and supplies for those Holiday Projects!
