Something New and A Fave

It's me again, with little something I made for the ongoing A Muse Studio Consultants Challenge Blog I'm hosting this week. And here she is:


This card was made using a stamp set I purchased recently called Love is in the Air. It's one of the sets found in the Valentine catalog. I stamped the buildings on watercolour paper, coloured it with my favourite (and first ever owned) Tombow markers in slate, eucalyptus, apricot, and sky, and a water brush. I tried to colour in a lovely wash of sky, but used a little too much eucalyptus and ended up with something much darker than I intended. So, on to Plan B, which was to fussy cut the buildings and add them to a sugar card base with a strip of slate cardstock as the "ground". I then die cut my favourite a|s clouds dies which are (sadly) being retired, and swiped on a little eucalyptus and sky using the markers and waterbrush. The sentiment came from a couple of different sets: No Peeking and Greetings Earthling.

You can check out a few projects from my fellow DT members here.

I hope you'll make time to join us at the challenge blog this week. Remember the challenge is to combine something new with your papercrafting fave. You have until January 26th to link up your projects and be entered to win some Splash! Inks.

Hugs and Kisses.
