Thank you Berry Much


This week the Hero Arts blog featured cards using small stamps. I decided to make a challenge card using their tiny strawberry stamp. It is one of those stamps I have been meaning to use for a while and just let it sit in a box. I can't tell you how rewarding it is to finally use it! The saying is one I use all the time and is from Make an Impression.

To make the berry card, I stamped the strawberry all over a white piece of cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. It is hard to tell from the large picture, but I added some pink colored pencil over the red Copic marker to add some highlights and then outlined each strawberry with the Copic Warm Grey 1 marker. Here is a close-up of one of the straberries so that you can see it a little bit better:


On an unrelated note, have you ever wondered what would happen if you ran over a rubber stamp with your car?

Wonder no more...


Have a great rest of the weekend. I am sorry to lose an hour to DST, but I am so glad to have it light out longer.

Were you taking advantage of the extra daylight & stamping outside? How did you run over a stamp!? Love your card, it looks so professional. How did you get all the berries perfectly spaced?

Oooh, Oooh, Can I volunteer for the next round of stamp testing? Let's see what happens when you shoot one out of a cannon. :)
