Some sweetness to share

Hello Everyone. I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful weekend. Today I am going to share with you a card that I think is very different than any other that I've done. The image is not what I'd regularly do, but when I received this little sweetheart in the mail from About Art Accents, I had to stamp him. So here he is, Splish Splash Bath.



I glazed the entire cup with Glossy Accents. Then started all the coloring. For the image i used markers, color pencils and gamsol, and glaze pens. Super cute and this little guy is a part of a set. I hope you all enjoyed todays creation. He was a real treat to make.

Supplies:
Accessories: cream pearls (Kaiser Craft), green velvet ribbon, lace ribbon, orange jewel brad (Frightful:Little Yellow Bicycle)
Coloring agents: Versafine Black Onyx, glaze pens, le plume markers, color pencils, gamsol, glitter pens
Die cuts- Labels 1 (Spellbinders)
Paper: Card stock- Ocean Tides, Spring Rain (PTI), Bella Bleu (SU), sage scrap patterned paper
stamps: Splish Splash Bath- About Art Accents
Tools: Scor-pal, Purple Cows 2-in-1 trimmer, Big Shot, heat gun

  16. Erika,

    This is such a cute card with a feminine touch. It feels like you could just reach in and wash his back. The shading around the frame gives the picture such depth. Great job!
