I'm still having some fatigue issues so I haven't done a lot of stamping this week...actually this is the only stamping I've done since Sunday. Last night Tom was putting together my new treadmill (because I majorly need to get back in shape) so I sat in the basement with him and stamped while he assembled. I decided that since my stamping time is limited, I would try and combine a color challenge and a sketch challenge to, as the saying goes... kill two birds with one stone.
I decided to try this week's Color Throwdown and one of the Verve Stamps Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenges (AVS04).
I love this black-eyed Susan image but I have no idea where it is from. I think I mentioned this one other time but I ordered it a couple years ago but never wrote down the name of the stamp company. If any of you recognize it, let me know. Instead of So Saffron I substituted the retired SU In-Color Marigold. I colored the image with Prismacolor markers and then painted them with Shimmerz paint. OMG, I love this stuff! I just got my first containers of it in the mail from JacksonBelle Embellishments. I ordered 4 colors and wish I could have ordered more. I painted the flower with Marigold Shimmerz and the leaves and stem with Green Olive Shimmerz. They give the flower such a beautiful shimmery look.
Supplies used: Black-eyed Susan stamp (manufacturer unkown), Inkadinkado sentiment, SU cardstock, circle nestibilities, self adhesive gems, Prismacolor markers, Shimmerz, Art Institue black glitter, Cuttlebug embossing folder, SU ticket corner punch.
I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
