Next is a stamp set from Tami Mayberry, called Stars. The name says it all. This set has a wonderful variety of star images, along with coordinating sentiments. It will be fabulous for CAS cards and accenting scrapbook pages.
I stamped some images with Memento black and colored them with Copics. On others I stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk. I layered with Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart paper and used a Kraft cardbase.

For my Enjoy The Sunshine card, I started by stamping the daisy bouquet with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring with Copics. I started with YR02.
Blended out from there with YR000.
For the flower center I started with Y17.
Then filled in with Y21. I colored the remaining flowers the same way.
I filled in the foliage, including the negative most of the negative area, with YG93. Then I used YG95 to shade the stems and leaves. After coloring, I cut out the image. This was a very detailed image to cut out, so I left those tiny negative spaces that I had colored earlier. Using a pale green helped them to blend into the foliage.
For the background I sponged a piece of Pure Luxury White cardstock with Memento Cantaloupe ink.
Sponged Memento Tangelo ink.
Sponged Memento Potter's Clay.
Then I stamped a silhouette image, from Enjoy The Sunshine, with Memento Desert Sand. On the right side, I only inked up the bottom of the stamp, leaving the single flower un-inked, then I stamped it a second time, on the left, inking it up fully.
I used my new Big Scallop Nestabilities from Spellbinders, to cut a large scallop border. This is a great way to use up some of those small leftover strips of cardstock that I always seem to have lying around.
I added some highlights to the background image, using a white gel pen, then I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown, Kraft and used a Sweet Mango (new Pure Luxury color!) cardbase. That ribbon is from the StampTV Kit, too.
Thanks for visiting. Have a fantastic day!!!
