Wishing You Happiness Today and Always


I love to start out with a sketch and Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday designs are always great to work with. I combined my sketch with the SCS Color Challenge 215 which as you can see is Pretty in Pink, Rose Red and Basic Gray. I had to throw in a bit of Certainly Celery for my leaves - forgive me :) I inked up my image with SU Markers, coloring directly onto your stamp allows you to add a variety of color to your image. Give it a little huff of breath to re-moisten the ink and stamp. The larger Pretty in Pink square behind my image and fluttering butterflies was dry embossed with my Big Shot and Texturz Background plate. My butterflies from Dreams Du Jour were stamped on Pretty in Pink with Rose Red Craft ink and embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder, then snipped them out with Paper Snips. My sentiment from Heard from the Heart was also inked in Rose Red Craft ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. TIP: For embossing, you will need to use either Craft ink or VersaMark ink so your embossing powder will stick to the ink before using your heat tool to emboss. My sentiment panel was given a decorative edge with the Eyelet Border Punch and then sponged with Rose Red. Half back pearls from the Pretties Kit accent my sentiment and a Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon tops off the panel. Wishing YOU happiness....

For now, go kreate
