Fall Flowers***

This is a stamp designed by Karen Stolper called "Flower Rope". It is stamped in Black archival ink, colored with Copics and a second flower is stamped and positioned on top of the first with a yellow rain drop in the middle.
I layered onto rust and cream again and then onto designer paper and then onto brown prism paper.
I added three prima flowers attached with yellow brads.
Enjoy !!!

How Many are too Many?

I always find it a challenge to use other colors besides white for my stamped & colored layer. For this card I pushed the limits a bit and used a medium shade of blue textured cardstock for the main image and colored it with copic markers.

The main image is dog walker from Karen Stolper.

Feeling a Little Blue...

I created this card for a monochromatic challenge and thought the stamp was perfect to go with a blue card! The image was colored with copic markers and edges sponged with dark blue ink. I also colored the ribbon with markers so it would match.

Supplies: Navy Paper, Turquoise Paper, Vanilla Paper, dotted satin ribbon, chipboard flower, copic markers, Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" folder.

Bright and Cheerful

This card is full of bright colors and glitter!! I used a Karen Stolper "LOVE" stamp for the stamped panel. It was colored with Copic Markers, then Dazzling Diamond glitter was applied to the flower to echo the large glittery flower from K&Company's Strawberry Patch embellishments and paper. This is definately a HAPPY card!!

Distressed Angel

I wanted to cut down the Angel with Butterfly image to show how it can be used on a smaller scale. The angel with colored with marker, then embellished with fine gold glitter on her wings. I included a vintage button and a distressed floral paper for embellishment.

Thanks for looking!

A Golden Angel

The Angel w/ Butterfly image was colored with Copic Markers. The wings are a glossy cardstock that was blended with dye based markers to be the same color as the dress but with a shiny surface. The background was texturized with a Cuttlebug "Textile" embossing folder.

I doodled the lines and dots around the image and sentiment with a fine point black marker.

American Art Stamp will be launching a new line of SETS in August... yes I said SETS! I'm personally a big fan of sets, so I'm very excited about these new releases. Keep watching for more details.
