A Sweet Girl

My 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 Bermuda Bay card base takes a run through the Big Shot with a Backgrounds Texturz Plate. Used a sanding block to 'scuff' up the resulting embossed image, to give it a 'stronger' appearance. Inked up this adorable girl, from A Kind Word,in Basic Brown. HINT: I omitted the kitty simply by removing the ink from the stamp with my Blender Pen and continually scribbling it off until no sign of ink was left on my Blender or my image. Gave it a slight 'huff' of breath to remoisten and set the stamp on Watercolor Paper.
With a slightly damp Aquapainter, I dipped my bristles into a small pool of ink and colored in my little girl. TIP: A small pool of ink can easily be kreated by simply squeezing your closed SU ink pad together and when opened, the lid will have a pool of ink to work with. I layered Crushed Curry Photo Corners on Melon Mambo and placed my image on top with dimensionals. Slid a Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon under my image and around the card and finished with a small bow. Inked my sentiment from Crazy for Cupcakes in Melon Mambo onto Crushed Curry and popped it out with the Large Oval Punch and then layered on a Melon Mambo Scallop Oval.

I just love these rich fun new In Colors. And tomorrow you'll be able to order them from the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog 2009-2010.

I love this card! The use of the photo corners is such a terrific idea. The colors are beautiful together. Great job!

Ann Schach said...

Cute card! I like the tip about removing an image from the inked stamp! Thanks!

Mary Fish said...

Very clever to layer the image over the photo corners. Lovely watercoloring, as usual! Hugs, M

Melissa said...

I didn't know you could use a blender pen to remove an image! How neato! You are one smart woman!

Oh yeah...love the watercoloring as well! So talented, you are! Ok, why am I talking like Yoda?

Patti said...

Your watercoloring is exquisite! Love the Melon Mambo corners. Great tip about "erasing" with a blender pen, I have never heard that one before! We are lucky pals.

I really like the mat you used underneath the watercolored image.

Very cool!
