CC159 & SC169


I needed to get into my stamp room. It is a total disaster but I was feeling the gotta stamp bug. I made another card using Artful Inkables stamps -- this time it was from the Fairy Whimsey set (one of the four newest ones).

I colored the image using my aquapainter and the lids of my ink pads. I also did the hair with Luminarte Twinkling H2O's. I used some H2O's on the dress as well to add some shimmer -- it is so subtle but pretty! The flesh areas were colored using a crayola colored pencil and gamsol. The background paper is Basic Grey - Scarlets Letter - Fare thee well. I placed a sheet of vellum over the top in an attempt to make it more grey to match the color challenge which was soft sky, basic grey and whisper white. It worked! I was super excited at how well it matched. Second background piece is embossed using the Cuttlebug machine and the Tiny Bubbles folder. I then dragged the sponge over the top of the piece with some basic grey ink on it. Subtle and perfect for what I was looking for.

Off to bed now . . . I hate when I get stamping and lose track of time. Goodnight and happy stamping dreams!
