Good Evening friends. How was y'all's day? Mine was pretty good. I sold 15 cards to a friend of mine and sold my first one on eBay. I'm pretty excited about that. I listed three more today, so we'll see how it goes.
My first card for tonight uses a new artist's design. I just recently Heather Valentin stamps and I am in love. Yes sirree..love 'em. They are so cute. Check them out if you haven't already. She has a ton that are retiring and are only $1.
Didn't I tell you she was cute? I used my BIC markers to give her some color. I think I do better with those than the Spectrum Noir. Or maybe I just need to practice some more. The sentiment came from Beyond the Fringe. I used a premade card base from Recollections for this one. I needed it to be 5" x 7" in order to fit all the elements on the card. I don't usually make cards this big, but I think it came out very nice. The image mat is Turquoise from Recollections and the DP is from DCWV. It's actually two different pieces of paper. I cut around the strip with the flowers and added it to the zig zag back ground. When I finished, I realize how much it looks like one piece. I rounded all the corners with my Recollections corner rounder. I so want a Corner Chomper. I used DI Broken China to edge the sentiment for a little pop. I added a little glitter gel pen to highlight the image. The large gems are from Queen and Co.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned. I am posting ten new cards tonight. God bless.
