Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge

I am so happy... I finally got to play with my stamps! Between Christmas, taking down decorations, setting up new stamping space and everybody home for winter break, I have not made a card for ages. I sat in my new area and played and played. My stamping area is not quite ready for photos but it is set up...just not tidy or decorated.

Today I took the challenge on Magnolia Vs Stampavie challenge #8...a sketch challenge. I used one of the Edwin stamps that Bea sent to me and he is just so cute. Imagine a great skiing day with your favorite little boy. I stamped Edwin with Versafine onyx black and colored using Prismacolored Markers. I used an Inkadinkado Opaque Pen for highlighting. I am still practising with the markers...it is a totally different way to color from pencils.I used 2 Prisma flowers and one I made using the 3 flower punch from SU. I love the papers I used. They are Basic Grey and they are wonderful. I have always love that shade between blue and green...so many shades of Aqua...love it. I used the largest rectangle and scalloped rectangle on the main image and attached the two other main sheets after using the Martha Stewart lace edge punch. I used hunter green (SU) ink for distressing. The ribbon is from a Martha Stewart project frame kit I purchased at Micheals for 75% off.

On the inside I used a CB die to trim the inside of this Thank You Card.

Its great to be able to post on a regular basis again. I missed posting and reading emails but as soon as I sat down to work the family felt obligated to `do`something with me. It was a fantastic break but I needed my time back.

I`m falling asleep typing this so I guess that`s my clue to have a little nap.

Talk later Hugs
