Time has been zipping by and I am just now getting the samples done for the Close To My Heart May Stamp of the Month, “To My Bestie”. So without further ado:
Card 1 was created based on Pattern 10 of Make It From Your Heart Vol. 4. I used my Shin Han TouchTwin alcohol markers to colour the balloons. Some thin gold & white ribbon and gold glitter gems finished it off nicely.
Card 2 was inspired by a card I saw on Facebook which was done by another consultant, Melanie Bottone. I used my watercolour pencils to do a pale wash on the balloons. A bit of clear shimmer brush and some added silver and black glitter paper was all this card needed to bling it up!
Card 3 was created based on Pattern 28 of Make It From Your Heart Vol. 1. Again, I used my watercolour pencils to colour the ladies. I basically used them just like pencil crayons. Afterwards, I used my water brush on the clothing to even out the pencil strokes. Some gold sequin ribbon finishes off this soft card perfectly.
As always, with every purchase of this stamp set, a FREE kit will be included, along with instructions on how to create all three of these cards. The stamp set can be purchased outright for $24.75 (+shipping/GST) OR with a minimum $50 CTMH product purchase, it can be added to your order for $6.00!
Here is the May SOTM: To My Bestie. So so many ways to use these images. I never even got around to trying the flowers! The bunch of balloons and the bouquet of flowers are designed to be placed in the hand of the lady on the left. I love the fonts in this collection!
Until next time
