Hello...I'm back with some cards. Finally got a chance for some "me" time this past weekend. And I actually made some random card this time without really thinking of an occasion. I mostly wanted to use my new stamp, thanks Eva!
sketch this week at CPS kind of went with a zen, minimalist, Japanese style :-)
Sister Stamps, so cute! I forgot where Eva got it from, but sounds like they only sell it locally in Hawaii. Kiyomi is colored with pencils, (still debating about going the marker route, especially now that I see Promarkers all over the place and Copics at Hobby Lobby and Aaron Brothers). But at least pencils seem pretty forgiving, just blend away or layer another color over. I ended up cutting the antennae off the butterfly. Anyhow, I also wanted to use my Spellbinder Lattice rectangles, finally got that from Hobby Lobby after using my previous coupon on gel pens for my kid's school supplies. I stamped the backgrounds from the only 2 Asian stamp sets that I own, the stem is from a Stampin Up set and the flowers on the Rustic Cream cardstock are from a Hero Arts Asian girl set. I tried to find relatively matching distress ink, I think I used old paper and bundled sage.
