I stayed in bed till noon with the kids today, so I didn't get to stamping till this afternoon. I think this cold has set in to my sinuses and is quite comfortable there. It sucks but at least my kids are on the mend. Maybe I can sleep at night again!
Anywho, I actually did today's Ways to use it challenge on SCS. You needed to use patterned paper and add glitter or flock, etc to make your own customized paper. So I got to work. The thing is, my brain feels squished inside my head due to this cold, so I did another valentine using the same color combo as day before yesterday's card. The thing about this card though is I got to try out my new digital stamps from All That Scraps! Here is the link if you wanna check out this set. It is really cute! I think I am really getting in to these digi sets now. The thing that sucks is I did have to use markers as even though I have good printer ink, watercoloring just doesn't work with them for me. Anyways, on to the card.
I colored the image with markers and added fun flock to the wings for a more real look. I used the quickie glue pen I got at my LSS. I love it as it has a really fine tip, like a ball point pen, so you have control over te glue and stay in the lines! I added the glitter, using the same pen, to the bow and the hearts on the mushroom. The frameswere made with my uber cool Slice machine. I sponged the edges of the red frame with matching ink.
Now for the challenge, all I did was use that sweet quickie glue pen, colored in the cirles and added the fun flock. It looks like it came like that! It looks way better IRL. Then I added the scalloped border, made with the slit punch and stamped the sentiment in red.
Oh and I have had a few emails about my Slice machine and what that is all about. So I will have a post up here in the next few days about more on that. :)
