New Rubber!!!



I got a shipment on Monday, it included my pre-order from the Occassions mini catalog which starts March 1st. They are all die-cut, so I just had to pop out and start stamping.


I went to SCS to do the sketch challenge, a little behind in doing some of those. I used the set for father, which is great for watercoloring! I stamped in brown stazon and used ink pads and blender pens to watercolor. The set looks somewhat antique to me, so I decided to do the cracked glass technique. Doesn't this puppy have the sweetest face?

card recipe:

cs: creamy carmel, very vanilla, choc chip, western sky dsp

ink: creamy carmel, choc chip, more mustard, ruby red

access: gold brads, distresser on 5 in 1 tool, glassy glaze enamel embossing powder


Wait- there's more, I did another one...

This is same sketch and technique. I think I should have changed out the chocolate chip mat to creamy carmel, might have to go rip it apart.
I also started watercoloring before I picked my dsp- I think I would have changed the hat color to soft sky. But I had fun playing. If you have never done cracked glass- it so much fun. You get to melt stuff then pop it into freezer. (I am impatient) and then you get to bend it to make it crack. It is almost like popping the bubbles in packing wrap.
