Happy New Year! I hope 2014 is just as exciting as 2013 was for me craft wise. I do have some Good News, I have been invited to stay on the Loves Rubberstamps Design Team and remain the DT Coordinator! Whoo Hoo!
I never take advantage of the fact that I am invited back each Design Team Term. I absolutely love Designing for Laura and the Loves Rubberstamps Store. And I could not be more thrilled with our Design Team Members. Here is our January thru April line-up:
Loves Rubberstamps Design Team
Yes, this year I am going to avoid things that make me fat..... like scales, mirrors, and photographs, lol. I love these new Creative Vision Stamps and plan on using a lot of them this year...okay, all of them, lol.
Paper piecing the bed and shirt was a bit tricky, lol. First I had to stamp the image on the bedspread paper, cut that out, then stamp on the polka dot paper and then stamp on white twice. And then color the jeans and feet, color the other white image and then fussy cut and stack them up. I do like to color the underneath - at least around the edges in case things don't align up just right. For ground texture, I put blender solution in a S.U. aqua-pen and went around the edges and stroked outward. I colored on clear plastic and picked that up with the aqua-pen and went to the edge of the image (bed), the color picked up darker in some spots and then fanned out in the wet blender solution and I kept working with it a little til I thought I had good shag carpet, lol. I also colored the bedspread designer paper in C00 where the creases are drawn in, just to add some dimension. All of these things and more I have learned from fellow bloggers over time, so I can't exactly remember all the details and where I found them, lol.
I can't wait to see your projects uploaded to the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog!
I am using the Friday Sketch Challenge
