Anyway, I have a card to share with you today I made for the "Less is More" One Layer Challenge, "What's in my Stocking?",here is my card.
This image is from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Christmas Classics". I stamped the image on a Ninah Solar White card base with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. I love the way this pencils blend with paper stumps dipped in baby oil but I've had some trouble with the oil bleeding out of the image on Ninah card stock, since it's not as porous as water color paper so now, instead of dipping the paper stump in the oil, I just use it with the oil it's in it already, no dipping is necessary since it's saturated and it blends without bleeding out.
I used a little silver gel pen for the hooks and the silver bells on the blue stocking, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy stamp set called Cozy Cupfuls and it's stamped with SU Strawberry Slush ink.
I made a promise to myself to finish the inside of all of my cards before posting them here, I know come Christmas 2016, I will have a good stash of totally finished cards, saving me a lot of time.
The sentiment is also from the same retired Flourishes set, stamped in Strawberry Slush and the little mug is from Power Poppy's "Merry Littles" stamp set. I colored it also with Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today, I appreciate your comments more than I can say here.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
