Make a Wish

 I have made a cute card this week with an adorable stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Make a Wish.

You could use this stamp for so many different occasions and I thought a Best Wishes sentiment would work for most of them.  I stamped the word 'best' from an MFT set I have and die cut the 'wishes' from a Pinkfresh Studio die called Sending. I cut the word out a few times and glued it together for some dimension.

The background was done using an "old school" product, an embossing folder.  I still use them occasionally because I love the look. Especially when it's sanded back like I've done on this card.

I loved colouring her with my Copics.
She's just so cute!!!

Life is Like a Balloon

I have made something other than a card today using some wonderful images from Mo's Digital Pencil.

I LOVE this stamp set! It's called Life is Like a Balloon and I thought it would work beautifully in my art journal.

I started off by making the background. I used some acrylic paints and a cloud stencil for the sky and some distress oxide inks for the ground with a fern stencil. I also used some black ink through a text stencil and darkened the edges of the pages with it too.

I then brushed gesso over the top to soften the look and with markers drew a border to frame everything.

I used copics to colour the images and fussy cut them out and I cut the sentiment into strips and drew a border around these also.  I left the "balloon" word out of the sentiment and instead used a die to cut this out for greater impact.  I also added some black ink splatters and some highlights with white pen.

This is a gorgeous stamp and I love the sentiment too!  I will definitely make cards with these two sometime soon.
