Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Derwent Coloursoft pencil crayons, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Dimensional dots
I simply stamped the image onto Kraft cardstock and coloured it in, it's therapeutic! Even if you have no idea of colour matching, that's me (I still have to pull out the colour wheel!). it's still fun. The only thing that I noticed when colouring with pencil crayons is that it dulls the black outlines of the stamp when you colour over them. So, I painstakingly went over every outline with a very thin black marker after I had completed the colouring!
The image is matted onto Rustic White cardstock and adhered with pop dots to the card base. Then I used some of my paper offcuts (which I seem to hoard, even those thin strips like that purple one), and adhered those to the bottom of the card and added the sentiment from another Hero Arts 2011 set.
For those of you who have been following my blog, I am now exactly 1 month away from the BIG day, Marathon Day! We will be doing our longest training run this weekend, 21 miles, and then thank goodness we taper right down until race day! I am so excited, if only my legs would feel the same. I went out on my morning run a few moments ago, but I must have left my legs behind because it was one of those mornings where just nothing was moving smoothly! Hey, I guess we all have those days in our lives, and that is what makes us stronger, just the ability to keep moving in a forward direction.
So, onward we go, face a brand new day, and more creating! See you later!
