POD...oh happy day

Hi there, a little bit of distress ink colouring on my background was all I needed to showcase these cuties from...
"Cora and Thomas" - skating bunnies.
I coloured the bunnies with copic markers and fussy cut them out.
The sentiment.. " Oh Happy Day"  was embossed with white and then coloured using the same DI as the background.

Have you seen that there is a sale over at Purple Onion Designs..
Time to grab those stamps you have had your eye on...

There is also a "Sale" category which has discounted stamps. 
These stamps will also receive the additional 25% off sale prices.

My card today is CAS.
 I heat embossed the sentiment.. "You are so Wonderful" and then  used Distress inks to add colour.
I used SUMMER designed by Stacey Yacula.
I just stamped Summer and chose not to colour her in.
 I just gave her a pretty bow for her hair for something different.

U rock..

Love this girl from unity stamps.. fabulous isn't she.
I coloured the image with copics.
To get the texture on the pants I colour these first b4 anything else.
I then use blender solution on a foam pad and pounce this onto a large rubber background stamp. ( I used MFT linen look stamp)
I then place the image face down and place an acrylic block on top for a few seconds.
This bleaches out the colour leaving a great texture/pattern. I found that rubber stamps work my ch better then acrylic/clear stamps.
If you do try this technique I would love to see your card.
