What a Great Day, friends! It is cloudy and dreary here in So. Texas, which to some may sound terribly boring. But we have been in a drought lately, and really do need some rain. There is 50% in the forecast today and tomorrow, so I am riding high in the hopes we get some rain.
My card today is a happy card, celebrating a Friend. The stamped image is one of Janie's Girls stamps from Hot Off the Press, and is stamped in Memento black ink and colored with Copic markers. When dry, I fussy cut around the image, leaving a thin white border around the entire image.
The background is a piece of glossy white card stock with Alcohol Inks from Ranger marbled on. I played with a full 8 1/2" X 11" piece of glossy paper, and then trimmed it down to four A2 size backgrounds when done. The doily die is from Cheery Lynn Designs and makes a wonderful background for the image. The word Friend is also a Cheery Lynn Design, and was cut from black card stock, then glued to the bottom of the card.
This card was just pieces put together to form a pleasing image. When I have spare time, I like to color stamped images, and play with making background papers. I then cut them into usable sizes and file them for when I don't have so much time, and need to make a quick card. I hope you will try this when you have a few spare minutes. Play with your dies, stamps, and backgrounds, trying new products and papers. Then when you need a quick card, you will have many pieces to choose from. Happy Stamping!
