Oh Taste and See

I'm Baaaaaaack!

Moving is always...an experience. I wrote about the emotional side over at www.beccawhitham.com, but I'm happy to say the craft room is set up and I'm ready to start blogging again here, too.

Today's card is a combination of two challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches: #202
Heart 2 Heart: Poppy Color Challenge


This card is also a combination of old and new.  Here's a list of the supplies:
  • Stamps: CTMH "Cutie Pie" (cupcake, retired); Verve "Psalm 34:8" (sentiment, current)
  • Paper: CTMH Blossom (retired) and Zoe (current)
  • Accessories (all CTMH): Coral Reef Sequins (retired), Red Glitter Gel (retired), Liquid Glass (current)
  • Ink (all CTMH): Cranberry, Lagoon, Topiary
  • Markers (all Copic): YR00, YR21, YR18, Y23, R29, BG0000, BG10, BG72
I stamped the cupcake twice, once in Cranberry ink and once in Lagoon ink.  I colored with Copic markers to intentionally fade the stamped lines.  After cutting the two cupcakes out, I trimmed off the bottom of the Cranberry colored one and ran a red Copic marker around all the edges to define it.  I trimmed the Lagoon colored image, too, cutting down the frosting part so I had just enough room for a piece of foam tape to mount the Cranberry colored part on top of it.  I also used a dark marker around the bottom part of the cupcake to add definition.

Too keep my banner from wilting, I glued the diagonal stripe paper to a sturdy piece of cardstock and used a hefty amount of foam tape underneath.  I also used a hefty amount of foam tape under my frame around the sentiment.

It's good to back in the crafting saddle again.  To celebrate, please click on the new link I added to the top right of my page for a free book.  I wrote one of the chapters. ENJOY!!

Until next time,
Becca

  4. You're BACK!!!! Yay!!! As much as I enjoyed your writing, I sure did miss your paper and ink creations of the COLORFUL variety. ;) I adore that zip strip more than you know. It looks fantastic in the sketch, and so, might I add, does your coloring! What a wonderful way to kick things off again!
