Today’s card is another variation using “Lavender” from The Greeting Farm’s Super Secret Stamp Club from last year. You can view two other cards created with this same stamp here.
While the little hairbow on Lavender features a skull, the design is otherwise cutesy. Simply by covering the little skull you could use the stamp in many different ways – so that is exactly what I did. Isn’t she darling!
Here’s the card…
So that’s my sweet and simple take using Lavender – nothing scary or halloween-y about her now. Love a versatile stamp!
Hope you all have a happy day!
Love your sweet card!!! I love how you transformed her into a completely sweet girl and colored her so softly. The rest of the card is gorgeous, especially that sparkle!
And that sky… It’s got the perfectly pastel look, with the itty drops of water bringing in some extra texture. You’ve definitely inspired me to take out some of my distress inks and watercolors to play with. 🙂
Oooh you are so sweet! Thanks, Elle! I was tempted to try and colour a more gothic look like you’ve done on your cards but decided to go sweet instead. Will have to work up to that! lol Oh, get out your distress inks and watercolours! You always do such WONDERFUL watercoloured images!
Well, holey-moley…you’ve transformed Lavendar into ‘cutesy’ with a capital C! Absolutely adorable, charming and all around delightful! In fact, she bears a remarkable resemblance to my sweet niece, who always wears a dress (even when she’s wearing pants…she’s a girly-girly with her fashion, but a tomboy with many of her behaviours. Toooo funny!). Once again, your scene – especially the bunny and your signature wee hearts – is fabulous. Love this oodles! We woke up to an Extreme cold warning in effect” weather forecast, so this will be a stay inside day, except for my husband, who has to drive home in the next short while. He won’t be back for a couple of weeks (very sad face), but that’s okay: I’m here with my mom, and for now, spending time with her is my #1 job. I’m aiming to bring out my Chameleon pens once again; I need to get the hang of them so all my wonderful ‘must be coloured’ stamps can receive some attention. I’m puzzled as to why they cause some bleeding outside the ink (Memento…as per the instructions). Hmmm….oh well, learning as I go is good therapy. Hopefully a card will appear later…
Hugs to you, sweet Kylie!
@C: What cardstock are you using? I found that some cardstock bleeds terribly, even if everything else you’re using is just right. I had a world of trouble using Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock, for example, as it soaked up the marker and bled outside the lines no matter what.
If your budget allows it, try getting the Copic Mini Marker pad: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DC4RJ82/
It’s a thin paper (70lbs), so you can’t use it as a card base, but it’s lovely for coloring with alcohol markers. It doesn’t bleed and it has a smooth finish that makes blending easier.
I hope that helps! 😀
And I will say it again…Elle, you are a sweetheart! 🙂
lol Isn’t she cute?! Love your comment about her too. haha Made me laugh. Urgh, an extreme cold warning forecast sounds rather horrible. Hope hubby gets home safely! I’ll trade you some of our heat and hopefully somewhere in the middle we find a happy medium. I’ve never used Chameleon pens but I’ve lusted after them heartily. If you are having bleeding issues, try using different paper. I’ve used the Copic X-Press It paper and found that to be relatively good. I’ve also used the Neenah paper a few people talk about – it works but I don’t rave over it. I also use one I picked up from a local paper company and I use it for all mediums. So just explore. And sometimes I think the marker can be an issue too. I have found that my E50 bleeds with the MFT Hybrid Licorice black ink…not always and on different papers. I think it is a trial and error thing. Just keep practicing! I’ll look forward to sussing out your creation! hugs! 🙂
