To tell you honestly, I'm a cardmaker and a stamper who doesn't own a lot of stamps. I don't do stamp-shopping that much because we're a single-income family and I have to stick to the family budget. I however do some shopping once in awhile but I train myself (and always make a note to self) that I can't always get what I want. ;-) I always tell this to my kids as well, that we may not always get what we want, but we are so blessed to receive the things that we need. And that's enough for me, really. So what I do is, improvise sentiments by printing them onto computer and finding some gorgeous images online to colour and put onto a card just like this one. I'm also blessed that I always find bargains online and offline and I have cyber friends who are so kind and generous to send me stamped images. You know who you are ---thanks so much!
I coloured my image using the Crayola that I just bought and I was so surprised that the colours can easily be pulled by the stumps. And the colours are vibrant as well. I patterned the sketch to SC146 over SCS and finished off the card by putting Copic Spica glitter pen onto the baubles.
Here's a different shot that captured the sparkle.
And a different angle shot..
This is all for now. Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving lovely comments.
May our good Lord bless us always.
