Sweet Memories Card & Video

Hello, Stamp Lovers!

It's Deborah here today with a card and a video!


I used two of the June stamp releases in my card today:


and


This card could be used for a variety of occasions: anniversary, friendship, even a coming-of-age event. I got to playing with my PrismaColor pencils again because the image was so perfect for them - sort of old-fashioned and wanting rich color that had some texture to it. I could have used Copics, but I just love the depth of colored pencil on the page! Besides which, Copics have really stolen the spotlight for the last few years so I like to rally around my equally beautiful pencils (which are a heck of a lot more easy on the pocketbook, as well).

I'd like to mention here that I used one of the Nestabilities Label Eight dies by Spellbinders - as you can see, it works quite nicely with the label stamp from the Beautiful Rose set.

And here's the video!



O T H E R   S U P P L I E S:
Cardstock (Memory Box); Patterned Paper (My Mind's Eye); Ink (Hero Arts); Colored Pencils (Prismacolor); Butterfly (Studio Calico); Button (Blumenthal Lansing); Gems (Recollections); Other: dimensional adhesive, Gamsol, corner rounder

Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

Deborah

I think your card is lovely and can't wait to see the video. I love my pencils and I'm glad to hear someone else feels the same way. I couldn't agree with you more about Copic markers. They are very nice and very expensive. Not everyone can afford to buy them. But back to your card. I like your layout, the colors you used and the stamp is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your art with us.

Thanks, Deborah, for the great video. I love these pretty stamps and your coloring using the pencils is beautiful. I do not own Copic markers and cannot afford to buy them. Prismacolor and Inktense pencils are my favorite coloring tools.
