A new card

I finished a card today.  I love being able to play again, instead of working on invitations!  Don't get me wrong, I loved being able to create the invitations for my son's wedding, but I am also glad that they are finally done!

I have decided that this is the year to actually learn to use rubber stamps instead of just collecting them!  I still have a lot to learn when it comes to coloring them.  I really need to work on the shading, but I'll get there!  I have always loved to color so I am really enjoying myself!

Here is the card I made.

I used colored pencils and baby oil to color in the image.  The stamp is from Stampavie - Rachelle Anne Millers' Mouse Hug.  Isn't it just too cute!!  Looking at it now, I think I should have used the solid pink behind the image and the patterned paper as the mat.  Oh well, its done now and I think it is cute.

I also made two flowers out of scrap paper.  These are my first trys and I don't think they turned out too bad.

I used the same paper for both flowers.  I used Glimmer Mist, a homemade Glimmer Mist and different inks.  I used beads and embrodery thread on the centers to tie them together.  Not to bad for my first attempt!

Well, I think that is all for tonight!  Have a Great night!
