Happy Friday everyone. It's gonna be a hot one here today..100 degrees. That's way more than I can take so I will be staying inside today..maybe getting some cards made.
I have a card for you today that uses a QKR Stampede image. I just love these stamps. They are so whimsical and cute. Maribeth designs some great ones. If you haven't ever checked out their store, please do. They also have a Biblical Store.
This image is called "Gone Fishing". Isn't he cute? I used my colored pencils and OMS to create this image. I also added the grass and dirt with chalk so that's not part of the actual stamp design. After coloring the image, I started with the chalk work. I have an Android tablet that I keep on my desk so that I watch you tube videos while I work. I found one that showed how to use make up brushes instead of the little pom pom thingies to add chalk. I didn't have a make up brush, but I have scads of paint brushes. It works so much better. I am hooked. You have more control over where your color goes and how much you are adding. I did the sky and the ground with the paintbrush and man, I love it. The DP is actually from a Recollections Christmas stack but I thought it worked really well with the colors in this image. Those cute little fish..well, I cut those out of a piece of DP that I had in my stash that I will never use. Don't know why I bought it. It had to have come in a stack of paper. It has campers, picnic tables, fish and words on it. Yeah, not up my alley at all. But, I cut the fish out and added them with pop dots to the card and I think they work well.
I made this card for QKR's last challenge but I didn't get it finished in time to enter it, but I really liked it so I thought I would post it anyway.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. If it's going to be a scorcher where y'all live, please take the necessary precautions..lots of water, stay out of the direct sunlight and if you are like me, stay in the a/c. LOL. God bless y'all.
