Technique Blog Hop ~ Color Your World

Welcome to the Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are having fun coloring in images with colored pencils, markers, etc. I have been wanting to play with the Keep Your Head Up stamp set which was created as a fundraiser for the Australian Red Cross. All proceeds from the sale of this stamp set go to the support the Australian Red Cross. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from HALEY DYER’S Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE.

I used pattern 5 from the Make it from Your Heart Volume 4. I used the Seasonal Mix-In papers for the base. I used Wisteria cardstock to mat the Daisy White. I used the Stitched Square Thin Cuts on the Daisy White. I then stamped the heart in Black Pigment Ink then used Clear Embossing powder. I also added some Wisteria Ribbon to the bottom.

Here is a close up of the stamped image. I used 13 of our Tri-blend markers to color this image and if you add in the fact that there are 3 shades of each marker that is a lot of different colors used! I am loving our markers and if you have not tried them you should.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Darlys Recker’s BLOG where you will find some additional artwork!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop ~ A Bushel & A Peck

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring May’s stamp of the month ~ A BUSHEL & A PECK (S1806) a set of 15.

If you are coming here from VICKIE O’DELL’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 20 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

You can’t help but fall in love with adorable girl.  So of course I wanted to focus on her.

So I had an idea to sponge an apple behind this cute little girl.  I used the apple Cricut cut from Artbooking. I sliced the apple with a card base shape and then cut.  I then used the pieces to mask off the areas like this.

I used  my scissors to cut the stem and leaf so they were separate pieces.  I placed the apple and stem pieces to sponge the leaf with Fern.  I then placed the leaf piece and removed the stem to sponge in the stem area using Nutmeg and Espresso inks. Next I sponged the apple.

Placing the stem and leaf pieces I sponged the apple in Ruby.

I used my ShinHan markers to color the little girl and stamped the sentiment on Fern cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of June and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
