Hello. Today, I am so excited to share this gorgeous card from one of my very talented guest designers, for Aloha this month, Janice Whiting! I just love the way she colored the toucan. The colors are so vibrant, I was sure it was Copics, but she told me she used Prismacolor pencils! I love the beautiful floral background she created, along with the CB embossed card base.
I asked Janice a few questions to get to know her better...
How long have you been stamping and how did you get started? I dabbled in acrylic stamping a little bit when I was scrapbooking, but I've been officially stamping for about about 9 months now. I discovered StampTV at about that time and after getting my first GinaK Designs stamp set, I was hooked!
What are your favorite kinds of projects/techniques? I love card making! It is just such a great way to share my art and thankfulness for the people in my life. My favorite technique is paper piercing. I into details so the more intricate the design or the more cutting that I have to do that more I enjoy creating it!
|I just love this party favor that Janice made for her son's tropical themed birthday party!|
Do you enjoy challenges and, if so, what are your favorites and why? I do enjoy challenges! I love all the StampTV challenges, especially the Color Challenges. Those Challenge Hostesses are super talented and are always coming up with great inspiration for us. I also enjoy participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenges. I love being built up in my faith though their challenges and creating projects that encourage others in God. The other challenge I like to participate in is the Moxie Fab World: Trigger Tuesday challenges. Cath comes up with the greatest triggers that are just so inspiring.
|Isn't this card fabulous with the burlap background and brightly color flowers?|
What are your "go to" tools? Hmm, I almost always use my kraft knife in some form or fashion! Of course, my Copic markers are a MUST!
What or who inspires you in your crafting? I am inspired by many things: beautiful images, certain color combinations, pretty embellishments or designer paper, anything vintage or shabby chic-ish.
Thank you, Janice! I loved reading all about you and seeing all your fabulous projects! A huge thanks to both Janice and Vicki for a wonderful month of tropical inspiration!
Now let's head over to Janice's blog to see another gorgeous toucan card!
Thanks for the visit. I hope your day is wonderful!
