This second card has an image that is one of my favorites (I know I keep saying that LOL, but it is true!!) The shoe is from Rubber Necker and I have created this shoe in as many ways as possible, just so much fun to play with. I stamped it on white cs and embossed with clear. I colored in the sole with black marker, then trimmed it out. The sole was then covered with glossy accents and red rhinestones were placed in each dot. ( sure glad I got them on sale, it takes quite a few to do this and in TWO sizes!) I found a scrap of vellum w/ gold hearts on it and
mounted that onto white cs, the onto black glossy, and tieing the ribbon at the bottom. This was all mounted onto a red glossy card, that is white in the middle. The upper sentiment is from Uptown Rubber Stamps. The inside reads " Chocolate does the rest" and it is from The Boyds Collection. I'll glue a small bite size candy bar underneath it just before I mail it out. I wish this scan could show off the glossy, and sparkly parts of the card.
This third card shows off a stamp from Stamp Zia, her
stuff is sooo cool ! Sometimes black and white just seem so clean and crisp, but not always easy to do when you are used to using so much color. I did manage to glitz it up with some clear and black rhinestones (I tell ya I found a stash of these things on sale at Michael's)
So these are my three new cards.
I have also started an art journal and will post some of the pages. So far only two pages are finished, but I have discovered what a release it is to just sit and stamp, color and experiment with no expected end results; and if I don't like it I just rip out the page and start over again. Sometime I wish Life could be like that, getting a "do over!" Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my three new cards.
