Hi - This past weekend I took time to look through all of my older stamps. I have millions of them. And I really want to use all the older stamps that I had to have cuz I fell in love with them. Poor things... I loved them so much and then they got put in a box and haven't seen light much less ink in a long long long time. So I am going to Dust off my old weekly blog post.. "Dust it Off" and start playing with more of what I have. I still will need all the new things I fall in love with :0) But I have challenged myself to use more of what I have -
Today I pulled out one of those images that I had to have - by Elizabeth Bell. Took me a while to figure out who this actually came from. But I finally found that she is part of the SweetART Ebony collection, and her name is Pen Pal.
Isn't she pretty? I think she has a little attitude :0) I colored her with my Copics. The pattern papers are from very old stuff. I punched two EK Success Flourish border punches twice once with the green card stock and once with the cream colored. Everything is sewed down. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of fabric tape.
I love how my flower came out!
You see I made it! No really I did!!! A couple of weeks ago I was at Hobby Lobby. Just ran in for some glue - nothing else I swear.... But I did have a 40% off coupon and saw a set of punches by McGill that well... I needed them. It is three punches with instructions for making roses. They have other sets for other flowers, that maybe one day I'll need to. I punched out of light pink card stock and then shaded and added pink Copics for depth. The leaf punch is part of the set as well. I used green Copics to add veins and shadows there as well. After it was all glued together and gorgeous I decided it needed some texture and bling. So I sprayed with Goosebumps and Smooch... Has a shiny sparkle now. Frustrated not as much as I wanted... but both sprayers are clogged ... grrrrrrr....
Kept the inside simple and ready for anything.
She was so happy to have some ink again!
I found that this qualified for Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Pink and Green
Have a wonderful day....and see you tomorrow for the Whimsy Challenge -
