Skull Castle Jude!


It's time for a blog hop!!! The last image from the new Simply B Stamps collection is what we are showcasing today, and I know you are all going to love him! I am happy to introduce you to Skull Castle Jude!

How cute is he?!? I just love what he is building! I need to try to construct this myself...with a little help from my kids, of course!

I used the same dotty technique (yes, I made that name up) for the sand, as I did with Miller. I like how it turned out. I used mostly Copics for this image, with a few watercolor markers.

I used some twine on the side of the card (which I inked), as I thought it gave the card some nice texture. Playing in the sand is definitely something I could go for right now. It's so relaxing.
I hope you have enjoyed this release! I know that I did! Please be sure to visit everyone in the hop. You don't want to miss a thing! Here is the full hop list.

Great texture in the sand and I love what you did with the ribbon! *Hugs

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
