I tried so many new things today, I'm not sure I'll be able to remember it all. First, I tried coloring stamps for the first time. OK, that isn't technically correct. I have been messing around with this technique for a couple of weeks but this is the first time I felt like I could use what I did. It was the first time I ever used a digi stamp.
Little Scraps of Heaven. She has a lot of great stuff. I must admit, part of the reason I used this image is because I have a VERY limited number of alcohol pens. I bought a few from an art store (Dick Blick). It is their brand and is close to ProMarkers or Copics (although the nibs are different from the Copics - from what I can tell). So, I only have a few so it truly limited what I could color.
I embossed the card topper with one of the 5 x 7 embossing folders in the Preserves Cuttlebug Companion set. Who would have thought it would work for a card like this but I liked the way it turned out. I also used some Nestabilities for the first time. I only have one set (Labels 8) and I bought them at least 6 months ago and never figured out how to use them in my Cuttlebug. They worked like a charm.
This is the other card I did with the same image.
