ETA: Hmmm…just found a few archived posts. Not sure what happened but here goes…
I have a box that contains bits and bobs of images I’ve stamped that I knew would make great cards but at the time I lacked the inspiration to do anything more with them. Sometimes I just want to stamp a background or color an image and not complete a whole card. So off it goes into the box.
There are images in my box that I stamped more than 10 years ago. In a way it helps me remember certain techniques. But the box got too full. I was able to put together 20 cards in 2 days.
As you can see from this lot of cards, I can’t get enough of PTI’s banner die. It’s just so handy for adding sentiments, or covering up those sentiments that were so obviously in-one’s-face crooked.
I watercolored this little dude close to 10 years ago. He’s still as vibrant as ever. I’m pretty sure I used SU! dye ink spots. In making the card, I colored the sky with Copics. I’d watercolored this image two times, exactly the same, so I thought it would be perfect to pop up one image on top of the other.
The next two cards are from a retired SU! set. For me, Copics really shed new light on a lot of my old SU!. Before Copics, coloring images with dye based markers was really hard for me to do. The ink was always too dark. I either had to use a blender pen or watercolor. Life with Copics is much easier. Too bad I feel in love with clear stamps in the meantime.
And the next two cards are PTI’s Guide Lines and Guide Lines 2 with WMS frames and sentiments.
