Still lovin' on my oatmeal (light kraft) card stock. Decided to try stamping with white pigment ink (heat set, did not emboss) and then coloring with Copics. It's a nice effect.
"Hugging" the image lines with color helps increase the contrast, even tho the palette is soft and subdued.
Couldn't resist adding some Pretty Pearls!
What, no flowaaahs???!!! *sheepish grin* I know; I'm a sucker for florals, and tend to reach for those more than anything else. Mebbe it's 'cuz I do not have my Gram's green thumb and a tendency to kill every houseplant I've ever had… LOL!
I'm also a sucker for nautical images, tho, and prolly 'cuz most of my life I have lived near the sea.
This was one of Teri Anderson's (ADORE her work and have followed it in the pubs for a long time! She just mixes things up so nicely and has such a flair for the uncontrived) layouts featured in the recent Go To Sketches publication by Paper Crafts. This is a very nice resource issue, if you enjoy working from sketches!
Anyhoo, I forced myself to use something besides the flowers that were suggested in the sketch, 'cuz of m'dang floral habit, and I LOVE how this layout shows off m'shells! *chortle*
Happy Monday to ya'! I had a great visit with my parents last week, during Spring Break, and we dined at a McGraths–first time ever for me. I had the coconut encrusted ahi with a pineapple/mango pureé…talk about dyin' and goin' to food heaven! OH MYLAAAANTA!!! *grin*
