Good Morning Stampers,

I hope all of you are feeling well.  Fortunately the stay at home order gives me an excuse to be lazy and have some fun with my stamps and some things I haven’t used in years.  Over the week end I organized and uncovered a lot of products I haven’t used for awhile. One of these is stickles glitter. I know it is hard to see in the picture but it adds a lot of sparkle to the finished image.  I started this card with a stamp set that will be in the new annual catalog.  For the first time that I can remember Stampin’Up! is offering a product from the new catalog early.  This set will be available April first.

I started with a base card of Soft Sea Foam CS followed by Old Olive CS for the next layer.  Beneath the image is a retired piece of crackled paper.  I stamped the image from the Ornate Style stamp set with Memento Black ink on Whisper White CS.  I used water color pencils to color the image then added the stickles gliiter.  I framed the image with a frame from the Ornate Layers Die set.  I think coloring is a real stress reliever and can’t we all use that right now.

Take a look and please let me know what you think.  Stay Safe my friends.

PAWS TO PONDER

Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
