Good Morning all!
How you all doing this week? I'm off to a slow start but it is the holidays and I've been busy with errands, events and all the stuff that goes on during the holidays. I've also been busy making some custom cards for a friend as well as a card for a friend at work. We're throwing her a surprise wedding shower of sorts and I volunteered to make a card for everyone to sign. I thought I'd show it to you all today!
Isn't it sweet?! I intended to make a fairly neutral card, since it's going to a couple, but I got carried away while coloring the image and it turned into a sweet and fluffy card instead! Hope she doesn't mind too much!
I think you can tell I love coloring in these Sarah Kay images, can't you?! They're so much fun to color with the reinkers and I love all the little details in them - even though they are time consuming to color!
I bought this Stampavie/Sarah Kay stamp, called First Kiss, from DieCutsRUs when Claudia was having a sale. It's no longer in her store now (not surprising since it was a great sale!). I used a combination of SU reinkers and Distress Ink pads to color it in. Then once it was done, I cut it out using the Labels Four Nestie, matted it with some kraft cardstock (which I cut by hand) and machine stitched them together...very slowly! For the base of the card I used that beautiful paper from The Girl's Paperie and more kraft cardstock. Each panel was sponged, some were distressed with my Tim Holtz edge distresser and machine stitched.
The sketch is an oldie, but a goodie! It's Friday Sketchers #118 sketch. It may look familiar to you since I used it on a card I made using a Stampavie image! Who says you can't use the same sketch twice?! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
