I Have Decided to be Happy

July-7-happy

More playing with Carabelle Studio stamps today.

Isn’t this a wonderful sentiment? ¬†Wonderful advice ūüôā

I stamped the right circular image in Distress Ink and misted it lightly before stamping.  The heart was stamped in the same manner.  The butterflies were watercoloured with two colours of Distress Inks and then I added some white gel pen and shadows with a Zig marker.

A little wash to ground the panel and a sprinkling of sequins completes the card.

Back soon with more my sweet friends…

Life is Pretty Awesome

It’s a gorgeous day here and life is pretty awesome.

Playing with some fun Carabelle Studio stamps today.  I did a wee bit of masking, but otherwise this is pretty straight forward.

The images were watercoloured with Distress Inks.  Then I added some white gel pen and some shading.  Next came some fun splashes of the Twisted Citron for some texture/interest.

Back soon with more my sweet friends…
