Stamping Ground You should visit and look around. You get to take a peek into other ladies stamping areas and see what they have going on!
Here is what I have going on at my work desk. Some E flowers from Prima (I can't wait to play with them) and a Sitting Angel from Magnolia. I'm taking lots of time to finish this little lady. I want her to be extra special. I have big plans for her. I have been trying to perfect my water coloring techniques for some time now...I love the look of the Distress Inks used in this type of coloring...but my shading techniques leave lots of room to grow. I have been experimenting with different brushes trying to achieve the look I want. I am finally beginning to have a light bulb come on in my head now and then. I discovered the secret is definitely in the brushes and learning which colors have more color saturation. Those colors have to be used sparingly and you have to brush most of it off the brush before you apply to the stamped image, otherwise you have this blob of color that just will not budge! Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany are some of those colors. I learned this the hard way, believe me. So for this little lady, I'm taking lots of time ....trying to get her just the way I want her to be. My next card will have her front and center. See you then!
