My News!

It's official, Crafty Secrets has asked me to be a part of their design team. You know what I said....Yes! I love their vintage images. I can muddy them up to look old or with this one I scuffed up the edges a bit but added a modern element. The flow of the butterflies, almost like a large flourish. This card was made to celebrate today, and I thought I would use the colors for today's color challenge on SCS. They are real red, soft sky and bordering blue. This is with Crafty Secrets newly released sewing set. If you know anyone that sews it is really a fabulous set full of button, thimbles, spools of thread to accent your cards.
The coloring was done with copic markers and I used Tim Holtz distress ink (antique linen) to age it a little. You know I needed to sew around the edge of this one!

Happy Stamping!

Congratulations! I love your style and love visiting your blog!

I have a Copic question for you: can you color directly on your stamps with your Copic and then stamp to paper? (KWIM?)

Thanks for your help!!!

Barbara Falk said...

Whooohoooo! Congratulations!! With your talent, I'm not the least bit surprised they snapped you up!

That butterfly flourish on your card is absolutely genius! It works perfectly! (Did I use enough exclamation marks??)
