Plant Your Dreams!


My friend Bethie (MyPrecious) hosts the Featured Stamper challenge each Sunday over on Splitcoaststampers.

Since I don't feel so good, and my brain doesn't work when the rest of me feels like crud, I decided to take the challenge and create something using the Featured Stampers art as inspiration. This week's Featured Stamper is BeckyTE and she has a beautiful gallery.

This tulip stamp by Hero Arts is one of my all time favorites! It seems to surface each year about this time(Spring fever?). I love how I can color them with any medium (markers, watercolors, pencils, etc) and make them any color to match my papers. This time I chose Copic markers, which blend so beautifully.

The sentiment border was created by using a small, embossed Nestabilities square. I then made a mask for the center and using my Copic Airbrush System, I sprayed pink and yellow around the edge. It almost has a rainbow effect IRL.

Copic markers and the Airbrush System can be found at Eclectic Paperie and Ellen's Store! (I love those girls!!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
