Flower collage trio

One of my favorite classic stamps sets from TAC is Flower Collage Trio. These images are so beautiful and versatile. For this card I colored the violets and other flowers with my copics. Outlined the petals with the stardust jelly pen and added a little bling in the centers with yellow stickles. I also pierced along the edges and went back with a micron marker to add faux stitiching. The final touch was to distress the edges to make it look like fabric. I went over the whole thing with a bit of cognac palette in to add to the aged look.  I embossed the background cardstock with a quickcutz folder I had on hand. The sentiment is from an old gift with purchase stamp I think...  The paper flower is one I made from an old book. I talked aboout it a couple of posts below.  It's hard to tell by the picture but the cardstock is purple and everything matches color. I don't know why some cameras distort the color even when you use natural light..ugh!   So what do you think?  Have a great week!

wonder girl

Here is another image I colored from the Wonder and Joy stamp set. She just makes me smile! I colored her with Copics. I drew in some cloud shapes behind her with my Stardust Clear Gelly pen. I love this pen! You can add glitter accents in fine detail with it. I'm finding myself using it more and more....  The sentiment is from Tag Tidbits. What do you think?

Wonder Boy!

Isn't he adorable?! This precious little guy is one of the images from a new stamp set called Wonder and Joy from the new Serendipity Street. I colored him with Copic markers. I've been watching a lot of tutorials online and I think I am getting much better...what do you think? The pattern paper is from Kaleidoscope Boyz  and the cardstocks are Bazzill.  The buttons are from an embellisment jar( don't remember which one-sorry) with a few tied with white scrappers floss.  The sentiment is from one of our purchase with purchase sets- Sincere Sentiments.  I've got some of the other images colored as well and will get them on cards to share with you soon. Don't forget you can order from Serendipity Street any time and if you put an order in of 100.00 or more you can get a set of 36 Copic markers for half price- the best deal anywhere!!  Also right now we have double hostess benefits so it is a great time to put a workshop together or just order for yourself! Hope you like the card! Have a great day!!
