Thank You Card

Well, I'm watching Glee so I figure I can multitask and post at the same time...

I made this card maybe about a year ago. I was playing around with the "Beyond Basic Borders" set from PTI. Took a while to get the entire border strip inked up nicely, it helped to cover most of it with the Ketto from Stamping Bella. The hearts are also from the Ketto line. I had to get the sentiment stamp exchanged, the original one had a little dot on the "thank" portion, but PTI was good about sending a replacement right away once I emailed customer service. I think this was also around the time I started trying colored pencils and baby oil. Still can't really color too nicely...or realistically, I basically just outline the edges or color everything in, then blend. All that I've been reading about imagining the light source is starting to confuse me, maybe I have to take an art class...someday. But at least the Kettos don't have too many parts to color (still so hard to do Anya's hair!)

pretty card. i like the hearts. i still have this thing about faces not having mouths but i'm slowing growing to like the miss anya stamps. have you seen the smirk line of stamps? no eyes and just a mouth! kind of spooky.

The other stamps without mouths are like the Tilda from Magnolia and the Gorjuss girl. I never really realized Miss Anya didn't have a mouth. Haven't seen Smirk, I had to google it just now...kind of weird though how it still looks like a person even w/o eyes. OK, I better get to sleep now, my computer was freezing so I stopped doing my work and came back to check the blog.
