I received some Stapavie images a while ago, and although I've been able to ink up the sweet owls, this stamp (Lily - My Little Friend) has been calling my name! I just adore the precious look on Lily's face..and that bird is just the sweetest!!
I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and colored...get this...NOT with my Copics (gasp!!), but with re-inkers and a wet watercolor brush! Because I was being a good girl and actually following the sketch (well, except my "circle" is actually more oval-ishLOL!!), I didn't have room for a sentiment on the front...so I decorated the inside (in true Denise Marzec style :-)!
Speaking of sentiments...I was having a hard time deciding what sentiment to use. I was going to just add a generic friendship one, but kept wishing I had one that said, "You're on My Mind". (That's what I thought of when I first saw this stamp...you know, with the bird standing on Lily's head and all...LOL!) That's when it occurred to me that I could make my own sentiments using my JustRite stamps!
Aren't those flowers fun? I just cut a few out form the leftover patterned paper (I used that particular pattern on the front only)!
Well, as you may have noticed, this is not a template as promised earlier! LOL! I was working on it earlier but got side tracked by playing with my kiddos! :-) Both boys are starting to feel better...and not itch as much! :-) I am amazed at how quickly kids heal! I will, however have the template for you on Monday! Have a wonderful weekend! ~Laurie
