Two of my newest stamps are from LaBlanche. I love to color these detailed stamps and use distress inks to enhance the backgrounds. The first one was a birthday present:
I colored this adorable little girl with Prismacolor pencils. Used several colors of distress inks for the background. Added a pretty flourish stamp to the background randomly. Some Stickles glitter for the centers of the flowers and around the edges of the piece, too. Punched two butterflies from the pink polka dot paper and touched them with the glitter, also.
The second card was done in pretty much the same way as the first:
The sentiment is from a new 2012 Hero Arts clear set. And, I used some dew drops of which I have entirely too many, for embellishment. Gotta' remember to use them occasionally.
By the way, 9 times out of 10 I use Versafine onyx black ink to stamp my images. I love this ink! It is great for detailed stamps. And, did you know that you can use watercolor with this ink?? You don't have to heat set it at all.
I enjoyed making both of these cards so much - hope you like them.
Thanks for visiting.
