Real love stories never have endings...


I saw this stamp and fell in love with it! My bf Flower gave it to me!!!! When I opened my mail I was floored!! Thank you so much Flower! I will treasure this stamp! She is stamped on glossy c/s, then painted in using a watercolour brush and tombow markers. I just swipe some colour from the markers onto a piece of plastic and use a wet brush to pick the colour up and paint parts in. After I painted in what I wanted to, I went over everything with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, going darker as I got closer to the edges. The background paper is also distressed. I then stamped the sentiment from Quietfire Design. I thought it went perfectly with this image. I randomly stamped a couple little stamps from Inkadinkado. Then punched some flowers and added them, putting tiny pearls in the centers of them. I really like how this card turned out! If you click on the photo to make it bigger, you will see more of the colouring and detail up close.

I bought a couple more Stampsmith plates last Friday and they came this past Friday! What awesome service Estelle gives! When I saw this new Marilyn plate I know I HAD to have it. She looks so naughty and sultry, I thought this sentiment from Quietfire Design went perfectly with her! Marilyn is stamped with Black Ancient Page, then distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I only used a touch of pink on her lips. I had intended this card to be for the Created Byhand challenge, red and green, but the green distress inks don't show up very well. I used it on the main layer that Marilyn is on, then over all the striped patterned paper. In person it shows up, but not in the photo. I am submitting it as is because I don't have time to try again right now.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful evening,

Both cards are wonderful, Kim!!! I should get out my Stampsmith stamps.. haven't used them in quite some time. You should send Estelle a pic of the card, she would love it and would probably put it on her website.
