Welcome to Stamping with Shadow! I share my creative corner of the world with Shadow our sweet little black Holland Lop.
I have been scrapping and stamping since my daughter Emily was born in 1998. Since then we have added Cooper our 9 yr old son.
I would like to share some of my projects and tips I have learned through the years.
Too hot to be outside so I've been playing around with my watercolor crayons and thought I might try my hand at a freehand sailboat! It was quite fun and easier than I thought. It needed a little something so I drew a little island and lighthouse in the background. The "friend" stamp is from Flourishes. I used 140lb Canson watercolor paper and mounted it on SU Tempting Turquoise. Hope you like it!
Such a beautiful spring day today! Today's Ways to Use it Challenge is featuring bugs, butterflies, bees well...you get it. I love adding butterflies when a card just needs a little something else. This butterfly was punched once in Brocade Blue and then again using a lace patterned vellum, finished off with a half pearl. The dandelion stamp is from Great Inspirations and the sentiment is from Winged Things stamped in Brocade Blue. The dandelions (hard to see) were finished off with Stickles.
A very gloomy day here in beautiful MD so the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers was perfect...a summer theme! My inspiration actually came from a pair of panties that I saw in Aeropostale while shopping with my daughter. I used SU water color crayons and a VERY wet brush. The colors were pounced with a water color brush...(not one of my good ones!) onto water color paper.
The first flower was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. Then I used the masking technique to cover the flower. Masking is one of my favorite techniques...stamp your image onto a sticky note and cut out. Use that image to cover the first stamped image. Stamp the same or other images onto the post it . See below:
Trim your image and mount. I used Bazzilltexured white for the card base. You can buy it here:
