I want to share another card here, but I'm afraid if I do people might start to think I'm a stalker.
Why, you ask? Because once again I am using a Newton's Nook Designs stamp. So I figure at this point I either need a 12 step program or I am a stalker. I think it's the latter since I don't want to do any harm to any of the folks at Newton's Nook, or Newton himself!
I've seen videos from two of my favorite card makers, Amy Rysavy and Jennifer McGuire showcasing this technique of coloring on kraft cardstock. I love the look and, if you recall, I dabbled a bit with it in yesterday's card. However, I decided to take the plunge and did way more stamping and coloring. I couldn't be happier with the results. I used Newton's Nook Designs Versatile Vases stamp set and my Prismacolor pencils and a small piece of pattern paper from Fancy Pants Design's It's the Little Things paper pack. I actually had not planned to use any pattern paper at all, but alas, I wasn't happy with the "hello" I stamped on the card and I kept playing with it to make it perfect, which made it anything but! So I put my OCD to the side, covered it up with the pattern paper and stamped on a separate piece of craft cardstock. Surprisingly I only had to stamp the "hello" once and I called it done.
I think I'll go dig through my stamps and find something else to play with before someone calls the police!!
