Homage to Lisa
I am very excited to feature or pay homage to a super awesome artist. Her name is Lisa and here is a link to the card that inspired this one: http://my-little-ink-spot.blogspot.com/2008/05/pink-happy-heart.html.
I absolutely love everything she does. I have added her blog to my list on the right. Go check it out!
Thanks Lisa for the inspiration :)
My daughter needed a card for a friend that will no longer be in her class next year because she is moving. She and her friend have been very close and she is so sad they won't be in first grade together. I hope she'll like it.
Stamps: Hero Arts, SU!'s Watercolor Joy standard wheel, Stampendous clear stamps Petal Plus set (sentiment). Papers: SU! Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Basic Black. Ink: Black and Pixie Pink. Accessories: SU! markers, ribbon by May Arts , Gems by The Paper Studio, dimensionals and Fun Flock .
I tried to capture what Fun Flock looks like and it is hard to do! Fun Flock is like small fuzzy powder and you apply it like you would apply glitter. First, use a two way glue pen, then sprinkle the Fun Flock. It comes in several colours. I used Caramel Latte Tan on the hair and Cotton Ball white on the shirt to make it look like a sweater. It is such a fun little detail to add to cards or scrapbook pages. I saw that Lisa used it on a card that she posted on her blog and I am so glad I tried it. It is so fun to work with!
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day tomorrow!
