This image is from Stamping Bella and it's called Abigail the Artist, I adore the Up Town Girl collection, all of this images are truly sweet.
I stamped her onto a folded piece of Canson water color paper measuring 3 7/8"x10 1/4", with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers, trying to follow the color chart from the House of Cards best I could.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, I masked everything around the cans of paint to be able to ink them up with the Basic Gray SU marker and stamp them.
The sentiment is from the same set, I just snipped the top part to be able to fit it next to my image.
Ok now, I'm going to do a bit of bragging here, please bare with me.
My 18 year old artist granddaughter Vanessa won the 2016 Congressional Art Competition with a piece sketched by her and done in water colors entitled "Indiana's Treasures", she painted the Cardinal, our State's bird and a Peony, our State's flower. Here is a picture from our local newspaper, the Windfield News.
I hope you can read what it says. Vanessa's painting is on display in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. and will be there until June of next year so, if you live in the area, I hope you go and see her painting among hundreds of others from all of the High Schools in the USA.
We are beyond proud of her and all she accomplished during her High School years, belonging to the Symphony and Chamber Orchestras playing the Viola, which she has been playing since she was in 5th. grade. She also belonged to the Swim and Track teams, it was absolutely thrilling to go cheer her up at her meets, she said I inspired her to become a great swimmer and runner and, at her last concert a couple of months ago, when they called all of the kids who were graduating this year, when she got to the microphone to say a few words, she said that she was grateful to her family and that she will do an Iron Man Triathlon just like her grandma one day. I just about exploded in tears of joy.
So thank you for reading and for visiting my blog, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
