T.L.C.

Hi, I recently did an online class called Clean and Simple where one of the Techniques shown was a graphic style of stamping. I have been itching to try it out and the Subway Art Builders Set from STAMPlorations were the perfect stamps to try it out with.
I used a few sentiments from each of the Subway Art Builders sets to create my base.
After stamping the sentiments in Black Ink and stamping a flower from the Eclectic Floral Stamp set I then die cut the word "LOVE: into it.. I die cut 4 more extra of the die love from white card and glued them together placing the first die cut over them all.

I love all Stacey's images and to get to play with them for a new release, well let's just say the smile on my face was pretty big!!!

 The new collection illustrated by "Stacey Yacula" is called "A Beautiful Day" and here is my card showcasing a few of the stamps included in this release.

 I really enjoyed colouring this image from Mo Manning...

I kept the card pretty simple using Distress inks to create my background paper- sentiment is a freebie from Craft Stamper Magazine.

Hugs

Hi there... This sweet lil girl is an image from a "A Day For Daisies".
I digitally paper pieced her after a few days of  playing around with photoshop and I must say I am very happy with the results...
I printed the image out onto blending card so I could colour in her skin and hair as well as adding shadows to her dress with my Copics.
The "hugs" die is from Technique Tuesday.
