Outlines Valentine

Oh my this is such a pretty stamp .. it is from Outlines Rubber Stamp Co.. I have had it quite awhile and thought it deserved to see some ink this year .. I used versamark, silver EP. The lines are so lovely and crisp.
The I used a couple copics to color in certain spots and a few pearls .. Love the border... a Martha Stewart punch set ...
Hope you enjoy...

Sugar Beaded Butterfly

This card was made sometime ago at a card class I took with some dear friends. It is a very cool effect. We took a pretty napkin .. separated it to 1 ply .. then put a large piece of scor tape on top ... sprinkled the sugar beads on it and ...VOILA' IRL it is very shimmery and pretty ...with a great texture ... at that piont we completed the card. Hope you like it. If you click on the pic it will show you a larger version and you will be able to get a better view of the sugar beads.

Hot Pink Happy B Day

Just playing with one of my new sets from SU .. Love this medallion ..The set is called Day of Gratitude. I used a white gelly pen (Sakura) to dot around the outside of the circle to match it up with the actual edges of the stamp.

Heartfelt Bouquet

I bought some of the gorgeous stamps from Heartfelt Creations in the summer .. this is the first card I have made with them.. I stamped a couple times and popped a few of the flowers up .. I used a q tip to color the flowers with Memento ink ...added pearls ... love the result. I was having a pink moment .. three cards that day were made with a 12 x 12 sheet of pink from Bazzill
