Ok, I got an email from Simply Scrapbooks (my LSS) and it said that it had the new Basic Grey paper lines in. I have been wanting these papers since I saw them on posts at 2 Peas. Well I was just going to get one of the lines, but I ended up getting two of the lines Wander and Oliver (I know this came out in July, but they just got it in this weekend). I love them!! I cant wait to play with them. There is just something about Basic Grey. I love how they always come out with boy lines!!
Well on to my card for this week. I just love to use my stamps, inks and my copics and this card has a little bit of everything on it. I also got to use the masking technique. I love this technique when stamping. First I stamped my hydrangea on my label. I then stamped the flower again on a post it note and cut it out and placed it onto of my stamped image. I then inked up my Friends Defintiion stamp from Hero Arts and stamped right over the mask to get the great background. I then took my blending tool and inked up the sides just to blend it a bit. I then colored in my flower with Copic markers. I added a white center in them with my Signo pen. I then went around the edges with a Stampin Up marker to creat the faux stitching effect. I think it turned out great!
