Dragonfly Ride by House Mouse Designs

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Today’s card it a little bit of a throwback to my early coloring days. When I first started coloring, most of my early images were from House Mouse Designs. As time passed, I started coloring images from other stamp companies, but I still have a soft spot for Amanda, Monica, Mudpie, Maxwell and Muzzy. So today’s card features Monica and friend on a Dragonfly Ride!

When planning my project, I decided to start with the stenciling. I didn’t want to have to recolor the image if I made a mistake with the stenciling. So I die cut the paper and stamping the image so I would know where to position the stenciling. Using Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, I carefully stenciled around the image. Then I colored the image with Copic markers and heat embossed the sentiment. I added Wink of Stella in Clear to the dragonfly wings for a little extra shimmer.

That’s it for today! See ya soon!

Fun with Stencils: Class Wrap Up

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Just finished up another class at Photo Scraps yesterday featuring different techniques and products to use with stencils. Everyone had a good time and hopefully will be inspired to incorporate stencils into their projects.

Since I ran out of paper AND printer ink when I was preparing the card kits, I wasn’t able to give everyone my usual handout listing all of the products. So as promised I am following up today with the product information. Tracy and Lisa asked that I offer another stencil class later in the year. Stay tuned! I’m thinking about ways to incorporate stencils into holiday cards!

And be sure to join me TODAY from noon to 3:00PM at the Photo Scraps Yard Sale. Arrive early for the best deals!
