Unfortunately, after I got all my papers cut out, I couldn't find the stamp I wanted, which must have been put somewhere "safe" while I moved everything around to repaint my office. So, I put that idea aside for another day, and still, these came together very quickly, for a change.
The cardstock top is Bazzill, the paper is Creative Imaginations' Make a Wish, and the stamp, which I inked with Memento Teal Zeal, is from Inkadinkado. The brads are Candies.
The cardstock top is Bazzill linen; the word background is a stamp from Hero Arts; the paper is EP; the image is from a rubber cling stamp. I don't remember who made it, but although it was one of my early ones, and I like the idea, I seldom use it because it's difficult to stamp without smearing somewhere.
In fact, this time after, four failed tries, I finally got it right, only to end up smearing some ink from my thumb right next to it. So, I fussy cut it out and put in on another piece of cardstock. The flash made the center of the typewriter look spotty, but it's a solid black, which I had to do with a black Copic to brighten it up. The brads, with tiny words on them, are Candies. It's also more a pure B&W than it looks on my screen.
This cardstock, for an any hero card, was from stash scraps, and although I thought I had enough, I didn't have enough left to border the red piece, but I'm still happy with how it turned out. The paper's from Doodlebug Design Stars & Stripes, the sentiment, stamped with Memento Nautical Blue, is from My Favorite Things. The brads are Candies.
This is softly colored and really pretty, but brighter than it looks on the screen. The cloud and dot paper is from Echo Park. The sun is from Cloud 9 Designs, but unfortunately, the paper is 12x12, so the corresponding beachy prints are too large for cards. It wasn't until I looked at the photo, that I noticed that -- oops -- there are bare feet around the suns. Which works with the beachy paper, but doesn't really make sense with the clouds. So, I may redo this. The stamp, which I inked with Hero Arts Shadow Pool, is from Stampabilities. Again, the brads are Candies.
Thanks for visiting! I love and read all comments. Have a great week and I hope readers -- and fans of manga -- will come back on Tuesday, when I'll share covers and a couple pages of two books which I recently had published in Japan in way fun comic book style.
