Hark the Heral Angels Sing....Glory to the New Born King!!

Well i must say i was itching to have a card for my shelf with this set and i found it proved to make a rather large card and a little more challenging but since its a ccdesigns it's still a favorite. The Patterned Paper is WRMKeepers ,the cardstock is Bazill Bling,the brads are Wassaill basic Grey the rhinestones are Kaiserscrapbook and the flowers are the hydrangeas are Prima.
I stamped the Angel Emmas(i have 1 set left) on 90Lb hot press wcolor paper .I then used my tombows ,a paintbrush and distilled water.On the gown i used light blues and light and dark greys for shading and the sashes a very medium teal blue

I stamped the sentiment on and 3d'd the middle angel and sentiment and i kept her pretty.I added some stickles to the wings and the trumpet,harp ,sashes and Halos!!
I do wish you all A GREAT week!!

A Tomboy,Blingy Girl,Mischievious, & All THAT!!

This is another KK image.I am trying to make cards with images that i sell in the store.This girl is a Tomboy,blingy,mischievious,and ALL THAT!!This describes my middle girl to a tee. Tha patterned paper is WRMKeepers,the strip is Pebbles Inc.The brads are by The Paper Studio.and the flowers are Prima.I used my Heidi Swapp edge distressor for the Bazill Cardstock.The Watercolor Paper is 90Lbs hot pressed.and the mediums used is my wcolors tombow markers,paintbrush and distilled water.Of course when wcoloring you must always use a permanent ink in which i use a blck Staz-On ink. Of course i added some stickles to the final image and i use crystal stickles because when adding it to any color of ink it brings out the color used.
Well i am away for a week and so i do hope you enjoy this cutie and you know where to find at the TownScrapper in petrolia.Don't forget about my special of buy one get the 2nd of equal or lesser value for 50% off....and this special has been extended till mid january to make up for the week i am gone and the week i am closed for inventory....but hey i will still phone and email orders.

Watercolor Tutorial

How to use the watercolor pencil crayons!!
What you need:

1.Watercolor paper: I use 140Lb Fabriano water color paper
2.Permanent Ink: I use black Staz-On
3.Blending stumps, a little dish with Odourless Mineral Spirits (OMS)

4. And of course your desired stamp-The ones I used for my image was from HUMBLE PIE of course.

Then you stamp up the image I will show you the snowman now I picked the left side to add color in because of the tree that’s at the left side that would cause the snowman to get the shade.
I then outlined the image with my pencil crayon.Then in using my blending stump I dipped it just enough into the OMS and in circular motions brought the color out .I never shade it in all the way then color JUST outline its all you need then if you feel it needs more you outline a little more.
Also when watercoloring always start with your lightest shade then go darker . If you have only one blending stump on hand and you are changing over to a new color then keep a sanding block on hand this will do two things:1) it sands off excess color before moving onto a new one and 2) it also sharpens the blending stump.

I find this is one of my favorite techniques and I am hoping that I get a 130 piece set for wcolor pencil Crayons for a gift this year however i am quite content not to get a single thing. Whether they buy it or i do it won't make a big difference.

I hope you all have a great week.

Beginning to Look alot like Christmas!!

Its beginning to look alot like Christmas and we haven't put up our tree yet.But the kids are getting anxious.Here is another KK post...sorry about the shadow coming onto the card. This little cutie and friend is a KKimmie image and as i start to use these stamps to promote the stamps i carry in my store The Town Scrapper i am starting to find a new love for these stamps.and because i have been rekindling the friendship between me and Tombow Markers i find myself to grab a stamp that has finer details which i find harder to use with wcolor pencil crayons.
I brought the light in from the right side.I layered the peticoat first without 3'ding it then i colored the scarf and coat and 3d'd that it was fun and challenging.

And you can see the 3d'd coat alot closer.I picked purple and blue because it was what was on my table and my goal is to see how much i can use what i have and trust me i have ALOT!!

Building with Love!!

OK so you may have seen this picture was made during christmas vaca last year.My Husband brilliant and wonderful and extremely smart built a snowman his height 6'7....Well when the kids tried to put the scarf ,eyes nose etc,on for some reason they couldn't reach.....but as i pointed this out to them everyone else was excited to be out there with their dad oblivious to the height discrepancy.So this day Another snowman was built with VERY much love and enthusiasm. This stamp is by Wags and Whiskers,I ordered 2 because 1 was a gift.My girls are each getting one in their stocking but different wags and whiskers images....can't wait till they let me borrow them....i am itchin to ink them up and Let me tell ya do they ever ink up beauuutifully.
So i inked these cuties up using Black Staz-On Ink,90Lb hot-press frosted wcolor paper.I pulled out my Tombow Water-based markers,paintbrush,and distilled i am not trying to draw attention to my error but if you look closely you will see what happened some red ran into the blue on the snowman but guess what it was not an easy fix so a lesson to learn is to be careful of the darker colors that you only need a smidge of.

This little cutie looks like it is being built with sooo much love.Again i used paper out of my scrap bin.The patterned paper is WRMKeepers,The cardstock is Bazill Wine Bling,the brads are by The Paper Studio,and the flower is actually from my stash and its Making Memories Noteworthy Blossoms.
