Hi everyone … I am wishing and wishing … but somehow can’t seem to find the time to stamp at the moment! So many ideas in my head … and just no time to get them out!!! And blogging??? That seems even harder!!! Part of the problem is that 2 of our laptops have power cord probs … so with 4 kids in the house + Gav & I … it seems that I have been relegated to lowest on the priority list to use the computer. So … even though it is the SU! New Year … and there is so much to update … I just can’t get here to do so!
An 18th is a hard one … suddenly an adult … but still a young woman. I wanted to do something girly … but not too kiddy or too matronly!!! 😀 I think this worked ok???
This stamp is a Whiff of Joy stamp called “Melinda hugging heart”. Isn’t it soooo sweet? I have stamped this image in Stazon Black onto the SU! (super) watercolour card and watercoloured it with inks & aqua painter.
Colours used: Lovely Lilac, Only Orange, Gable Green, Pixie Pink + Creamy Caramel for her hair. The rest of the stamping and sponging is done with Pixie Pink.
Aren’t the hearts along the bottom a great match … and I have used the “Short Order Numbers” (now retired) set to do the “18”.
Thanks for stopping by my blog … I hope you are enjoying all the new SU! info … and are getting some great inspiration for your cardmaking!
Will try and get something NEW on here tomorrow!
