Love Is In The Air! By Fran




The digital stamp is called First Love by Sassy Cheryl.  And so I took it one step further and made it mine with Love Is In The Air!  I was going for whimsy but maybe I over did it. But any who I still like how it turned out.

My Recipe:  My card is 4-3/4” by 6”.  All elements were cut on my Silhouette machine except for the butterflies (MS Punch).

The background paper is watercolor paper.  I used the new Tim Holtz Spritzer (my new favorite item) and Distress markers in two colors and spritz the paper.  Then I used a paintbrush to water color in the sky.  If you haven’t bought yourself one of those spritzers you are missing out on a awesome tool.  It is not hard to use once you find your rhythm.  I used the new smaller blending tool to enhance the edges.  And Glossy Accents which is my most favorite medium.

All the coloring was done with several different mediums:  Copic Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, Inktense Pencil, Distress Ink Pads and Markers, and Wink of Stella Glitter brushes

Copic Markers:  Olive, Apricot, Golden Yellow, Baby Blue, Veronese Green, Frost Blue, Light Grayish Cobalt, Pink Flamingo, Egg Shell, Brick Beige, Warm Gray #3, and Blush.

Prisma Colored Pencils:   Chocolate, Ginger Root, and Denim Blue.

Inktense Pencil:: Dark Chocolate

Distress Ink Pad: Stormy Sky

Distress Markers: Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass

Stop over the Cutters Creek Store and check out the new items and the all time favorite items.  And if you have any questions you can contact Kim.
