I found the cutest stamp ever!! I know, I say that a lot! But this one is so adorable, I just had to have it. Now, I am not really ready to let my daughter have "sleep overs" or go to a slumber party (she's only 5 1/2)...but when I am ready, she will have the cutest card to take and have the cutest scrapbook page!! LOL Actually, we are going to visit cousins and friends in Texas soon so she will have a mini sleep over...it's just that mommy and daddy will be there, too!
This stamp set is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and is called "Ashley and Jan's pillow fun"!! I found some cute K&Company Designer Paper "BW Small Wonders Boy", yes, it is a "boy" paper pack, but I thought the stitched look on the Yellow and Red paper was perfect for these little girls. So, I took the colors from the paper to watercolor Ashley and Jan. I used ink and an aquapainter to water color, then used my SU markers to highlight. I used a white gel pen to color the feathers and added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the wings.
I created a "Soft Sky" marker using a blender pen and Soft Sky reinker. I outlined the image with the soft sky marker to create a shadow. It's subtle, but makes a difference in real life. I also inked around the edges in Certainly Celery. Here is a closer look at the image...
When I saw the stiching on the DP, I thought of the card that Julie posted yesterday for her Color Concoction challenge here . I guess instead of taking the color challenge, I took the "faux stiching challenge" LOL.
I think these would make the cutest "Slumber party" invitations. But this card is going to our little friend Haley in Texas!! We can't wait to see you, Haley, and have a little sleep over at your new house!! We miss you!
