Newer Cards { as previously promised }

In the stamp shack they do something called an Virtual swap, where the owner of the stamp, stamps it and mails it out to anyone who is willing to come up with an project out of it and post it online so all the players see one other idea of something to do with that image. Joanie hosted one recently where she stamped two of the flowers in the window frame stamps and two of the tea cup borders stamps and sent them out. this is what i did with mine, i actually used both images on one card. the one above, is colored with prisma and crayola pencils and blended with an prisma colorless blender pencil i found at Micheals last time i was over the sentiment is from A Muse Art stamps... This one is 5X7 i stamped the hero arts scalloped ribbon stamp four times on pink cardstock with aged mahogany distress ink trying for an old fashioned lace trimmed shelf look. then after i colored all of the tea cups ( which was harder then it looks because these are really tiny and detailed) i went over the tops of them with that you guessed sakura gelly roll pen. ( i am having too much fun with this, good thing there are two in the wrapper) The sentiment is from Stampin' Up These Prima flowers were new to me, I ended up buying them to get the magnetic metal tins they were sold in more than to get the flowers them selves. I'm intending to alter the containers to be fridge magnets when i use up the petals. This one is going in the Korea cards box, figured since I have already done a pile of baby girl cards i should add some boy colored ones for balance. the buttons have Karen foster scrappers floss tied through them. Love that stuff, it doesn't shred when you try to poke it in a hole like real embroidery floss does. this one is 6X6 in real life. tfl.
