Hoppy Birthday

I made this card for a girl at work. I stamped the image with Versafine ink. I really like this ink. I had been using Staz on, but the image was not coming out clear. I tried the Versafine and the image is great everytime! I then colored the image with colored pencils and gamsol. This is my favorite way to color stamped images. I have been wanting to try Copic markers, but I can't justify the cost. So, I will keep using colored pencils and Gamsol. The stamp is from Stampendous the Happy Hoppers. I just love the little bunnie. I think Eleanor will like the card too!

These are Post-it note holders with pen. I have been trying to find new ideas for my Craft shows. I came across the tutorial on You-tube. I decided to make some and see if I thought they would sell. I think they came out really cute! I hope others will think so too.

Birthday Kitty!

I made this card for a co-workers Birthday. I love the Penny Black Stamps! The image was stamped with Staz on ink, then I used colored pencils and Gamsol to color the Kitty. I think it was a great success!

Birthday Card!

My granddaughters have a Birthday party to go to tomorrow. I thought I would make a card for the occasion. I used Lily from the Pink Cat Studio. I used glitter pens and colored pencils to color her. I added little rhinestones to her crown. I think she turned out really cute. I hope the birthday girl will like her too!
