Candle Light


Hi All! it’s time for my friend Nancy of Row House Greetings and I to color up the same image. We have been having so much fun trying NOT to color these alike. I try to go out of the box so our images are not so alike, and sometimes that backfires! lol. This month I chose the image. It is from Whimsy Stamps and is available as a Digital and a Red Rubber Stamp. Both are listed below in my Shopping List. I cannot wait to see what Nancy picks for next month, especially after last months image with ALL those arms and legs!!! Now, on with the Show & Tell…

Once again, we chose similar colors. Nancy went with softer hues, while I went bold. I love the neon green pops of color! To visit Nancy’s blog and get all the details for her card CLICK HERE.

Using a snow marker can be a bit of a pain. Mine always seems to flow out a ton. So this time I dispensed some fluid out of the marker into a silicone ramekin and applied it with a small paint brush. BOOM! it went right where I wanted it without any blobs or overflow. Yipeeeeeeeeeee!

I kept my layout simple with only a strip of pattern paper and a blue outline for my image. There is SO much going on with the image that I did not want it to get lost in layers and paper.

A little white gel pen high light goes a long way!

Both are so cute! I do like the softer colors, but love the pop of brightness on your card. Thanks for sharing!
