That is definitely easier said than done! I tell myself that all the time.....just relax a little bit, but I never seem to be able to do it for very long. I like to stay busy but moreover, I LOVE to sit down at my stamping space and create something. I sat down last night to create a few cards and grabbed this MFT Presents Annie LaPoint image that had been up until now uninked. I love this bathtub image - the bathtub reminds me of the tub my great-grandma had in her bathroom years ago (well minus the stripes and the flowers lol).
I used my copics to color the image, then went over everything with my Pearlescent Watercolors that Kim sent me - they are FABULOUS and leave lots of sparkle on your image!! You can't ever have too much sparkle IMO! I stamped the flowers/leaves twice, then cut them out and popped them up on SU! dimensionals. The bathtub stripes and flowers are covered with SU! Crystal Effects. The color combo is SU! Basic Black, WW, Apricot Appeal and my beloved Cool Caribbean. I added some gemstones and primas to polish off the card.
I have tons of new stamps that I have been playing with - it makes my head swim - heehee! I never know which ones to grab first. There are several new releases that will be coming soon and you can catch your first peeks right here. You are absolutely going to adore what is coming - they are all FABULOUS!!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
