Here are all the designers joining in the hop tonight featuring February's new stamp sets:
I also want to announce my two fabulous guest designers for Hang In There, Brenda Turner and Linda Payne! Linda and Brenda both made cards for the hop, so be sure to check them out. I'll also be featuring projects from these two ladies on my blog next week!
To make my card, I stamped the Koala image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copics, starting with N7.
Next I used N5.
Filled in with N1.
I used W1 and W3 on the branch. After coloring, I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder. I used my Versa Mark pen to cover the entire image with Versa Mark ink, so the embossing powder would stick.
I cut a 1 1/4 inch circle from a post-it note to mask for the sun and sponged, Memento Cantaloupe ink, lightly.
Then I place the circle I had cut out, over the sponged sun, using re-positionable tape, and sponged Memento Angel Pink.
With the mask still in place, I sponged Memento Rose Bud. Then I removed the mask and stamped the branch and grass, stamping additional times before re-inking to give some depth to the scene.
I layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Innocent Pink and used a Lemon Drop cardbase. The ribbon is from the Spring Ribbon Assortment.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day and wonderful weekend!
