Bad Day Chick

Hi there,

it's time for a new Challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More and I would like to show you the following creation:

  • stamp one of the chicks from the Stamping Bella The Chicks who couldn't even stamp set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) onto a stitched panel of white cardstock and color the image with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • color a strip of white cardstock with the three yellow markers used on the chick and cut out the sentiment using the My Favorite Things Little Letters
  • cut out the sentiment from black cardstock as well and layer them as a shadow behind the yellow letters
  • add a strip of patterned paper from the Avery Elle Neutral Collection 6x6 paper pad at the bottom of the cardbase before adhering the panel with foam adhesive

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Coffee Cat Tag

Hi there,

this is my fourth creation using an image from the Gerda Steiner Designs February/March Digital Stamp Bundle:

  • color the super cute Gerda Steiner Designs Coffee Cat which is available as part of the Gerda Steiner Designs February/March Digital Stamp Bundle with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
  • cut out a tag from watercolor paper using one of the My Favorite Things Tag Builder Blueprints 6 dies
  • use grey cardstock to cut a ground for the cat to stand on
  • stamp coffee-related images from the Lawn Fawn Love you a Latte set into the background with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • color the images with Caran d'Ache Prismalo I Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • thread a piece of teal twine through the hole of the tag

Have a colorful day.

Yours,
