Somebunny's Thinking Card

     Just in time for Easter, I created this card with a tag featuring the adorable Somebunny's Thinking stamp from Red Rubber Designs! Such cute bunnies, and they were so fun to color with my Distress Inks, which I also used for the tag, lilac flowers, sentiment, and to color the lace and chipboard banners.

     Recycling a piece of cardboard, I started by spraying it with some black, brown, and copper mists to mimic rust. Then I applied a couple of Ranger embossing powders for some texture, which I also used on the flower center brads, the gromlet on the tag, and the grass embossed with the Mountain Scenery stamp. I distressed all of my paper edges, including the flowers which I doubled up, using the Happily Grateful and Pressed Flowers stamps. The chipboard banner pieces were covered with gesso, and colored with Distress Inks, where I extended the stamped "you" onto both pieces. The background of the tag was stenciled with white gesso dots, and finished with machine stitching around the edges.


Thanks for your visit, and have a wonderful Easter!

A Rosa for You

Hello, friends!  Angie here, featuring the gorgeous Rosa cling mount stamp from Red Rubber Designs.

I had so much fun last week painting my stamp that I chose to use the technique again for the Rosa stamp.  I used TH Distress markers and colored the stamp then spritzed lightly with water.  I stamped multiple times and let dry.  For the next step, I scribbled markers on a craft sheet, picked up the ink with an aqua brush and painted in the clear spaces of the rose and leaves.  For a little more dimension I stamped over the image a couple of times then added shadows.

To finish off the card I added a sweet sentiment from Joyful Notes.

Thanks so much for stopping by, now here's one last look at the fabulous Red Rubber Designs stamps I featured today!
