I used water color pencils and blended them to color the images. Have only tried this once before. The coloring is okay, could be better, but just a different technique. Need to practice to get better at this.
The stamp set is Close to My Heart Sensational Season and I used the Nesting Doily in Oval from Lifestyle Crafts. I have also used honeycomb in the middle to make an egg.
Close to My Heart stamps Piouette and Enjoy the Journey for the inside. Image stamped in Daisy White ink and then embossed with clear poweder. Colors inked over embossing were Slate and Ruby. Black background paper from the 'For Always' paper set.
Circle and dots stamp used were from a CTMH older stamp set. They are flower centers from D1368, but any circle stamp could be used. Designs random stamped in Cranberry, Honey, Outdoor Denim, and Topiary ink. Accents cut out with CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartidge, circle 2 and oval 5. The striped accent was done at 2 inches and Sunset ink was used with the Perfect Fit Frames Flair stamp set to create the stripes. The scallop circle was 1 1/2 inches and sponged in Honey ink.
Background made with Close to My Heart Twilight and Outdoor Denim ink swirled in Shaving Cream. You press into this mixture, take out and scrap off. Let dry and you end up with this neat swirled effect.
Dinosaur stamped in Outdoor denim. CTMH stamp set is Roar. Twilight card stock matted behind dinosaur on front.
I know this stamp set is retired but I really like it.
