Penny Black Slapstick Stamps

Hello Friends, How are you?

I just love these sweet image  called  "Good Friends" . I colored the image with Copic markers and layered some blue distress ink for the sky. Colors are listed below.

I cut & colored an extra umbrella to give me some dimension. I used these clear "Scrap Dots" under the umbrella. Works like a charm. I forgot to link the sentiment in the supply area at the bottom so here it is. I use this sentiment all the time.

I added lots of white highlights and Glossy Accents in the center of the flowers. Love the new mini Glossy Accents. I added a gem to the birds eye or I use Black Enamel.
A few questions about my last card here. Yes you are correct, I did stamp the flower on white paper and colored everything with Copic markers. Sorry I didn't give all the details.
Before I go ... just in case you missed it...if you leave a comment here three winners will be selected for Jennifer McGuire & Kristina Werner & Friends Summer Card Camp 2011 Have a happy day! Hugs, Kathy

Thinking of you

Hello Friends, How are you? This is such a crazy time of month and I have a feeling it's going to be filled with lots of quick posts. I am gearing up for my DD's 16th Birthday among other stuff going on. There are 10 June Birthday's and I always seem to leave someone out.  Did you ever see the Birthday calendar that I made?? If you want to check it out click here.
Thinking of you!
I love stamping flowers to create a background. It's relaxing to color and later I add other details. This time instead of dots I added dashes following the outside edges of the flower and on the petals.

I had to give you a close up of the center. I dotted Flower Soft with some glue and when it was dry added a pool of Glossy Accents. It look super cool in person. The Flower Soft sticks out of the GA so it's got some super texture since didn't cut anything out on this. Let me know if you have any questions. Have a happy Sunday. Hugs, Kathy


SUPPLIES: The sentiment is from SRM stickers.

If you are curious about the center of the flower you can see in this older post what I mixed & used.
I just finished my first Copic certification TODAY so I look forward to sharing more tips with you! I colored this flower a month ago but, it illustrates the feathering technique we used today. However, I choose not to blend the colors for more of an artistic look on the petals.
Enjoy
