"sideoats & scribbles", has a fun challenge called "Make It + Mail It; Hey, Sweets"! She wants us to create and actually mail our cards - crazy thought, eh? Check it out and play along. Well, I got to work! But, you see, I had to make two very different cards.
The first one features traditional sweets (I used Hero Arts Stamps CL331- Birthday and CL346 - What's Cooking, DCWV Nana's Kitchen Stack paper). That one was mailed this morning to my little niece. Sweeeet!
For both cards I colored the images with my Prisma colored pencils, blending with Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) and a stump blender. I love that technique! I am also submitting the cards to the Hero Arts May challenge which includes using colored pencils (see the multi-talented Shari's video on using colored pencils), making ATC's and using Fabulous Flowers.
Have a great weekend, especially you Moms. And seriously think about what type of sweet you really want to eat. Thanks for looking in!
