Sometimes I buy cute stamps just to entice my daughters to color along with me. I think this one was proper bate so I hope to see some activity on that side of the desk. This is Magical Dragons from My Favorite Things and I used the Bright Side of Life Chipboard sentiment from Make it Crafty.
Where has the time gone? Just last week school was starting, or so it seemed, and now there’s only one week of left before December is upon us. Time to get the holiday shopping done and break out the baking supplies! LOL.
This card uses the A La Modes What’s Cooking stamp from My Favorite Things. This seemed like a fun stamp to use. Of course, I couldn’t rest adding some details. This is a wee bitty one but I was still able to add on some face details.
Thanks for dropping by this weekend and hope you’ve been inspired. By the way, what’s cookin’ at your house?
There’s always something that can be added through creative color placement that it’s hard to resist. The image I used on this card was Elephant Story by My Favorite Things. At least I think that’s what it’s called as I can’t find it online anywhere now days. I colored in glasses and gave the elephant larger eyes.
After I colored the image, I also colored the frame. I started with the darkest color and added grain lines. Then I added some more with a medium tone brown and finally colored it with a light brown.
The dream sentiment is a portion of the Over the Rainbow chipboard sentiment from Make it Crafty. I’ll be using the top half on another project. For this piece, I colored it pink with a Copic marker then glued on some pink and red micro beads.
Here’s the girl that I previewed in the FB group and she’s all finished on a card. It’s been a while since I’ve done paper piecing and I like how it turned out on her clothes. This is Book in Hand by My Favorite Things and Puppy Additions from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
I’m a sucker for almost any stamp that features a girl and a book so this one was no exception. I used Creative Color Placement to give her some bright eyes. The placement of the original eyes would have been funny so I used those dots as a marker for the outside of the eye. They blinded in nicely with the eyelashes so it worked out.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by my blog this weekend.
I can’t believe this is my first My Favorite Things stamp, but it is. This one is called Here’s the Story and was colored with my first few Polychromos Pencils. I had purchased about a dozen and took them with me on my vacation last Thanksgiving. I’m always inspired by Jane‘s coloring and tried to use her technique on the book by cross hatching while coloring. I hope to continue to learn from her. Thanks Jane!
On my projects, I’ve been using a lot of the Twinkle Goosebumps Gems from Queen & Co. I love the way they look and the extra texture. Those and the Make it Crafty chipboard are becoming a staple in my projects. LOL.
