I need to apologize to everyone for my lack of posting lately. It's been so busy that I have barely had time to sit down and make any new cards. I finally carved out about 4 hours of studio time yesterday morning and put together a few cards with some of the new goodies that I've acquired recently.
The sundae and sentiment are from a sweet new set from My Favorite Things featuring one of my favorite things.... ICE CREAM! The main image was stamped with my new Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This stuff is great with Copics... it doesn't run at all and stamps a nice dark shade of black. I think it'll be replacing my Palette Noir, which up until now was the best I could find.
The ribbon on this card is alos new.... it feels and looks just like paper, but is made of a non-woven cotton. You can shred it, curl it, stamp it, distress it, tie it, sew on it .... the possibilities are endless. For this card I tied it, then shredded it to make the spikey looking bow. The little scalloped tag was tied on with a strip of the ribbon that was peeled away from the main ribbon, so you can easily make various widths to fit your projects.
The main image was colored with copics, then the sundae glass was painted with Yasutomo Pearlescent Watercolors. These are so pretty and fun to work with... they look just like Pearl Ex or Twinkling H2Os - but come in their own Palette.... just like kid's watercolor paints! It's hard to see in the picture, but I used a combination of white and gold for the sundae glass. I was just checking Kim's website for more details on these paints and realized that she has already sold out of her first shipment! I'm sure she'll have more in stock soon though.
Thanks for looking!
