Precious Moments


I know...I'm supposed to be working on my Christmas cards. But those new Sarah Kay images in the store were calling my name. All of the Collection II images are on their way here, and I expect them any day...I can't wait!

This one is called Precious Moments , and I couldn't wait to ink it up! What fun it was to color!

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush. I painted in a little grass to keep her grounded, and besides, the little chickies needed something to stand on!


The designer paper is two different patterns from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6 x 6 paper pad. Isn't that gorgeous paper? I used my SU! scallop punch to make the transition between the two patterns.

The sentiment is from the 10 Centers and Borders stamp set by JustRite. I thought the Cherish sentiment was perfect for this sweet little image.


Again, inspired by Denise , I decided to use some of my paper scraps to decorate the inside. I can't seem to make a card these days without thinking about how to use the paper scraps to make the inside cute and interesting! Thanks for the inspiration Denise....you've hexed me! *grin*

I purposely didn't stamp a sentiment on the inside to I can choose one when the occasion arises for the card. I think this image would be perfect for many occasions.

So....I thank you for stopping by tonight. I do so appreciate it, as well as your thoughtful comments.
