Now don't shoot me when you see the card I have to show you today OK? The image has no layers at all. I always start out my projects with stamping the image I want to use at least three times. I then color different parts of the image on the different stamped images, I demonstrated that in my tutorial HERE. I did the same with this image only I was chatting with my five year old Dyanne while coloring (it's autumn break here so we were coloring together :) ) and at some point I realized I had just about colored the entire image. I kind of liked how it turned out though so I decided to just keep it one layer this one time. Still I hope you like it :). I made this card for Alison Acton, the very talented illustrator for Whiff of Joy. I don't work with her images very often but I do own a lot of her stamps and I adore her style. Her little baby is due any day now and Katharina Frei has asked people to sent Alison baby cards using her own images. I'm sure you have read about it already, she is also offering candy for people who will participate, you read about it HERE. Here is my card for Alison:I so love Henry the Mouse! Here is a close up of the Henry Mouse Hugging Heart:
Almost all of the materials I've used came in the post yesterday with the latest Card Art Card Kit. The only things I've added are white cardstock that I embossed using my Swiss Dots folder, the heart charm and some string. Coloring as always was done using my Derwent Watercolor Pencils and my Copics. The sentiment is from the Pink Cat Studio Sweet Pea Plate 2 that is also for sale at Card Art HERE. Card Art also sells Whiff of Joy stamps but Carmen doesn't have this one in stock (IN DUTCH: mocht je niet uit het buitenland willen bestellen en wel helemaal verliefd zijn op dit stempeltje dan kun je natuurlijk wel altijd contact met Carmen opnemen, ik weet zeker dat ze hem graag voor je bestelt).
Have a great day everybody!!!
