I have a couple of teaser cards to show you today....first up is from a set called "Emma Playing Mommy" and I actually only used an accessory from this set as well as the sentiment:
I paired up this image and sentiment with the sweet vintage posy elements from Melissa Frances. I love to pair cute images with vintage papers! I stamped the carriage on the label and then again on my X-press it Blending Card paper to color with my copics. I cut it out and pieced it over top of the stamped image on my label.
I also airbrushed the corners of my patterned paper to tie in the color from my carriage.
The next card feels COMPLETELY different, it is "Fred Bear goes fishing"....
I just love Fred Bear....he is so much fun to color! I added texture to his fur using the technique you can find in this video. I paired him up with some fun Cosmo Cricket patterned paper and did a little messy stitching around the edges. There is more to this image, I cut off the fish and pond in order to have him fishing for this cute sentiment that comes with the set. Tied up with twine and a mini paperclip!
See you on release day! I have a cute fabric/stamping project to share!
