Hey everyone!! I finally finished this card - I've been working on it for awhile, I just haven't had much time in my craft room but I finished it up bright and early this morning!!!! I am SOOOOO pleased with how it turned out!!!
As you all know, Inky Impressions is a BRAND NEW rubber stamp company and Nicole is getting ready to release her first set of stamps VERY QUICKLY!!!! She sent me a sample stamp to try out and rate on its quality, and I have to say, it is TOP NOTCH!!! The red rubber is really deeply etched and it inks SOOO nicely!!! They come on EZ Mount so they are ready to INK!!! The stamp she sent me is LiLi colouring Easter Eggs, and since I was DYING to make another card using an Inky Impressions stamp, I thought I would see how versatile I could make it!!
So, I coloured her, cut her out, and cut off the Easter Eggs, paint brush and paint cans. I wanted to try to use my Flower Soft so I made some little flowers on wire (still need to work on this technique but not bad for a first time!) for her to hold, instead of the paintbrush. I added Flower Soft at her feet too. She is also holding a large Easter Egg, so I added a tiny Prima flower to look like she was holding it. THIS is what I came up with:
What do you think???
I coloured her with Copics, added some sakura gel pen (stardust) and atyou Spica pens to give her some sparkle! Those EYES just scream for some SPARKLE, don't ya think??
It is possible to take Holiday/Seasonal stamps and make them into whatever you want!! You can mask them, cut parts off, add parts, cover parts....the options are endless!!!!! If I can do it, so can YOU!!!
Here is a close up of LiLi:
Thanks for popping by!!! Have a great Sunday!! And for my Canadian friends, enjoy your Holiday Monday tomorrow!!!!! I am soooo happy to have a long weekend!!!! Tim and I are going to go do something fun today - a hike and a picnic with Brick. Brick loves our family walks - especially when he gets to be off leash!!!! So I better run and get ready!!!
