I actually made three cards today! I have to thank my dear friends Jesse and Shiela for making it possible today. Jesse came and stamped with me and Shiela came over and took a big mess of recipes I have been collecting and magically turned them into a cookbook! That is why I could sit and stamp today without guilt.
My final card of the day (so far!) is again with the doodle set. For this card I started by stamping the three yellow flowers on the 5" square of white. I just kind of visualized how I wanted the finished card to look and spaced them accordingly. The purple flower is stamped and cut out, along with the green leaves. I colored everything before I stuck it together. I used the watered down marker technique to color in the flowers. The way that works is first you take your marker and scribble it on the top of one of your stamp cases. Then you use the aquapainter to pick up the color and paint with it. You can also use a blender pen for this. I used a blender pen for the flowers and the aquapainter for the blue background. Can you see that? I glued the leaves to the back of the purple flower and stuck them all on the three flower base. I stamped the Wonderful with basic black and decided I needed to fill in a bit of that white space....so I masked off the flowers and stamped a portion of the doodle swirl in there. Finally, I tied it all together with some Hand drawn totally free form original art....doodle cirlces in the corners. Aren't I talented? ;o)
