One stamp four ways

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that  your "Life is Good!"


This is one of four cards that I created with this particular stamp. Today I am sharing two of them & later this week I will share two more. All of the sentiments are from SRM stickers.

For this card I stamped the image in Barn Door then distressed the background. Here is a great explanation of how I layer my distress inks for some depth. To finish this card off I used some Walnut  Stain distress ink on the edges. The letter background is stamped with Aged Mahogany.

This card was fun to ink up with several distress ink and splatter with water. I placed a panel of vellum behind the center panel and the sentiment.


Please email me if you have any questions. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. Did you know that SRM has brown, white and black lettering in their sticker sentiments?
P.S.S. I will be back tomorrow with a some BIG BLOG CANDY. 



Tombo Watercolor Markers/Digi Kit/Copic Markers

Hello Friends, How are you today? Have you ever flown a kite? I don't know why I wanted to turn this adorable flying hedgie into an kite with a string? Maybe because I want to give away the guy on the bike called "A Thorney Affair"?

I love Kites
This little guy is a "Christmas" stamp but, he's so incredibly versatile!
LEAVE A COMMENT and I will choose a winner for "a thorney affair" stamp next week.

I love Kites

Both of these stamps just scream happy to me. I used Tombo watercolor markers on the "Hedgehopper" and the bows on the string . For the bows I drew figure eights with a marker on white paper, colored them and cut them out. The critter on the bike I used Copic markers. The lovely papers are from Jen Martakis's digikit here.

I love Kites

Embroidery floss works wonderful as my kite string. I jazzed up the hopper plane on the tail with a lightening blot.

I love Kites

Do you recognize this bike from Penny Black. Look in the supply list below to see if you can spot it.
Other cards I designed with "A Thorney Affair" you can see here and  here .
Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Kathy



two monochromatic cards

Hello again, How are you all?  I am dying to know what you think of these cards? These are the two cards that you will find on the Penny Black BLOG that fall into our "monochromatic" theme. I couldn't stop at one and I think it's really fun to see the same image colored and dotted differently.

I finished off the inside of this card so if you are interested please scroll down.

These birds are really so much fun to color with any medium or you can just use distress ink to "color" them.  Both cards were colored with Copic markers and dotted with a white gel pen. The pink bird has some glittery accents that you can see below.

Worn lipstick distress ink added the perfect soft color to the heart. I felt like a pop of color was good to add to the inside of my monochromatic card and the inside shows you what the original stamp looks like.

Sorry but, I have to always give you an up close and personal look at my images. I drew some extra lines around the triangles on the tail. The gems were a gift and I accidentally threw away the packaging ... I don't remember where they are from.

This photo shows the glitter which is very easy to apply if you have a glue pen. For the cupcake liner I added some geometric lines. One more thing...Instead of cutting out the legs on the pink bird I drew some legs.

I can never stay it enough  A BIG THANK YOU for always stopping by. Have a great day! Kathy
P.S. There were a few questions about my Ranger color chart here.  I like to use the daubers for small areas and the distress tool for larger areas. If yo have more questions please email me so I can answer your personally. Thanks :)
