Sweet Pea Stamps No. 1

Happy weekend everyone!

I have the privilege of being the guest designer for Sweet Pea Stamps during the month of August! I am truly honored and overjoyed. I also think that I have almost all of Lynette’s (owner of SPS) stamps that she makes. I am a “stampaholic,” be it rubber or digi. My little 8’x 6’ studio is overflowing with stamps.

For my first project I created a card (of course) using one of ching chou kuik’s Fantasy Art Collection, Sheet 33, Plate 126. I have admired ching chou kuik’s talent from the very beginning of discovering Sweet Pea Stamps. Now SPS has added a large range and talent of other artists. You need to check out the site August 1. Lynette is adding another new artist to her collection.

I mixed up this project just a little by using both my Copics and PrismaColor pencils. The image’s hair and background were colored with the pencils and all other parts were completed using my Copics. I do like the result, if I do say so myself. LOL!

Details for this Fantasy Art Collection project are:
Copics: e000, 11; r20, 29, 89; v01, 06, 09; yg95, 99.
PrismaColor pencils: crimson red; french grey in all shades; olive green; steel; white.
Inks: Memento in Tuxedo Black; Spicas in Lavender, Lemon, Lipstick, Olive.
DP: BasicGrey Wisteria.
CS: Stampin’ Up!; Bazzill.
Flowers: my stash.
Dies: Magnolia Doohickeys; Marianne Design Creatables.
Challenges that I have entered:
CCEE Stamps – create something winter or summer
Paper Play Challenges – in the garden
Stamp Insanity – use your favorite colors
Amber’s Crafts and Stuff – use patterned paper
Papercraft Star – anything goes

Thanks for stopping by, I do sincerely appreciate it! I like followers, too! If you have any questions, do not hesitate contacting me.
