Good Morning! I have a card to share with you today for the Crafts and Me rubber stamp challenge that begins today. The “Rockin Rubber” team theme is “Die Cuts and Punches”. The stamp I selected is a new one by one of my favorite artists, Hannah Lynn. This lovely mermaid is called “Tatiana”. She is colored with copic markers and spica pens.
I had a lot of fun coloring her. For some reason, I am in the “black and another color” mood and I was wanting to play with intense reds so here she is! My copics are still not playing nice, so I had to limit the amount of shading and laying down of layers of color on her hair and the deeper skin shades…can’t wait to get my Touch Twin markers so I don’t have to stress when coloring my images! As I said in an earlier post, I am not giving up my copics, no way! I just want some TT’s to replace the E’s that don’t always want to do what I want them to do! LOL!
The design paper is from ETSY... I had no black and red paper (can you believe it?) and so I thought to go digital. The shop is called Baer Design Studio and this is the Red and Black Damask which you can find here. There are lots more digi papers in her store, and downloads are immediate. I printed this paper out on a color laser printer at work (Ssh, don’t tell) but it would print just as beautifully on my inkjet at home.
I used black and deep red cardstock to mat my dp. Now since this is a “die and punch” challenge, I used three dies: the Memory Box filigree heart, Magnolia flourish and while you may not see it, a Spellbinder frame on which I mounted the image and the roses. Some black tulle behind the image, black lace, red velvet ribbon and red roses from Kort and Godt found here at Live and Love Crafts embellish the card. I glued tiny pearls from my stash inside the roses.
Why not pop over to the Crafts and Me challenge blog to see what the design team has created to inspire you? We would love to see what you create with your dies and punches this week, so please join in the fun and the chance to win a great prize! Have a great day, and, as always, thanks for your kind comments. I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
