I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

New African American stamps by Rubbernecker

 I'm so excited.  I got my new African American stamps by Rubbernecker.  They come unmounted, but on a cushioned backing that sticks to my acrylic blocks.  I love em.

I am currently making cards to fill up my stash so that I don't have to rush at the last minute to make one up.  Sometimes I don't add a sentiment so that I can do that when I actually need a card and not necessarily the sentiment that is on it.

Here is the first of four of the new stamps that I just acquired - Breyona.  She's beautiful.  I just love the curls in her hair.

I decided to color her skin tone with my copic pens.  I used Smooch inks for all of the other colors.  I used my Marvy puffy paints in black for her hair.

I backed the image with DCWV Shimmer Stack.  The patterned papers are from SEI Addison.  The border punch used is an EK Success punch - Scrolls and Dots.  Of course, one has to ink the edges and this was done with Tsukineko Memento Dew Drop Dye Ink.    Added a little dotted ribbon and you know, I have to add a little bit of Prima flowers. to offset things with a brad center.
