Well, CHA is winding down, and the Impression Obsession Design Team wanted to continue showing you some of the new designs released at the show. This time the theme was "Spring." I decided to share a couple of Easter cards featuring images by IO's new stamp designer, Sarah Phelps. Aren't her designs cute?!
For the first card, I went with colors that aren't normally associated with Spring. In fact, I think it is the first Spring card I have ever made with dark brown and orange. I ran the tan background piece through my Cuttlebug machine two times using my dot border folder. I wanted to add some texture, but I didn't want to have dots over the entire card. I colored the bunny and carrots with Copic markers and then embellished it with an orange ribbon.
For the second card, I went with more traditional Spring colors and broke out my Copic airbrush system to create my background. I created the sky with the airbrush and a cloud template made by Rosie's Road show. I then masked the bottom of the card with a post-it note cut in the shape of a hill and sprayed it with a green Copic marker. The bunny and eggs were stamped and colored on a separate piece of paper. I then cut out each element and glued it to my meadow background.
Be sure to check out the other spring cards made by Julie, Dina, Kelli, and Daniela.
I hope you have enjoyed all these sneek peaks. They were sure fun to create!
On an unrelated note, one of the women I have met at the Hero Arts blog posts interviews with members every Wednesday. This week she interviewed me! If you have never read Deborah's "Society of Stamp and Scrap-aholics" blog, you should definitely check it out. It is one of the funniest blogs I have ever read.
On a second unrelated note, my Copics class this week was cancelled because of the weather. If you are interested in taking it, it was rescheduled for this Saturday from 10am-12pm.
All my best,
