I got a huge surprise last week when my sweet friend, Ms C left me a comment telling me that I had won a prize from Paper Smooches(for a comment I left on my massively talented friend, Kay Miller's, blog). I was absolutely giddy. I knew for sure which stamp set I wanted to order, Best Buds. I also was able to select a few dies. Squeal! Shipping was super fast, too! Thanks, Ms. C, Kay, and Paper Smooches!!
I sat down and stamped several of the images onto white cardstock (Michaels Recollections 110lb white). I knew for sure the first image I was going to color was the one with the flowers in the jar. I used my trusty colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits and got to work.
I kept it simple and straightforward. Then I added some Wink of Stella as well as a little bit of Gelly Stardust pen. I also tried some white dots from my Signo pen, but I think that might be drying out or gooping up from lack of use. :( I ran the cardstock through my Cuttlebug with a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle and adhered that to a piece of textured black cardstock from Hobby Lobby. Finally, I add a few iridescent sequins (also from Hobby Lobby).
By the time I finished futzing with this one, my crafty time was up. But oh, I was smiling big time when I was done.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a wonderful day.
