Hi all! I am stopping in to share some new cards I made quickly today and some older cards that I haven't shared yet. I was just itching to try some new stamps so I used this new set that I got in my surprise box yesterday. If you missed it, please read yesterday's post.
The first two cards use the cling stamp set Unititled Word Shadow by Hero Arts and the Designer Woodgrain background stamp also by Hero Arts. I was feeling green today. :-) Can you tell?
The next two cards were ones I created and submitted to a magazine for publishing. They weren't chosen, so I thought I would share them now. The first one is using the Hero Arts stamp Newspaper Tulips. Tulips are my favorite flower. When I saw this stamp I had to have it, so my sweet husband let me have it for Christmas.
I colored it with markers and then misted it with water before I stamped it on water color paper. I used a baby blue water color pencil in the background and then painted water on top. I thought the yellow bakers twine looked like sunshine. :-) It's a little hard to see, but I also embossed some lines on the front of the card as a frame around the flowers.
This one I also did with markers and then misting. When I got this Zig Zag stamp I immediately thought of a rainbow. I had to try it. It makes me happy, happy, happy. I thought the black would be a nice contrast to the rainbow, so I heat embossed the greeting in white on the black strip. I added some diamond gems for glitter.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at what I've been up to. I will be back soon with some more sharing.
