IG/Facebook Giveaway and EXCITING NEWS!

I decided to play some more with the awesome Galactic Adventure stamp set from Kindred Stamps.  I had so much fun creating the "Nice Buns" card (, and wanted to do something with a stronger meaning.

The Women's March movement has been very dear to me, for many different reasons.  So, to show respect for all the women out there fighting hard, I made this bookmark with the ever popular "A woman's place is in the resistance".  Princess Leia was a not only a princess, but a strong, brave leader.  It is no surprise that her character has been used within this movement.

I stamped her on Canson watercolor paper with Brilliance black ink.  Not much color was needed for our star princess.  Using my TomBow markers, I used two brown tones for her hair, and a single color for her skin, belt, cheeks, and dress accent.  The water brush is brilliant at helping blend and move the color.  I painted in a pink area above the princess to highlight the sentiment, which I stamped after letting the bookmarks dry.  (Actually, I used my heat tool to speed up that process.)  The sentiment was also stamped using Brilliance black ink.  I actually used my new Tonic Studio's Stamp Platform to stamp this project.  Good thing too, due to the texture of watercolor paper -- it is difficult to get a crisp stamped image the first time.  Re-ink and repeat!

Using a Dylusions stencil, I applied two shades of pink distress ink to the card base.  Then, I used my Crop-a-dile Big Bite to punch and set the eyelets.  We had a fight, that little contraption and I.  Not sure who won, but I learned a lesson -- I will lay a scrap piece of paper between the Big Bite and my finished work to avoid grease marks.  (sheesh)  I'm going to assume because it is new, but I won't take that gamble again.  I'll thread some ribbon through the eyelet and card to attach the bookmark to the card front to finish them off.

I decided to share the love and gave one of these bookmark cards away on my Instagram and Facebook pages.  (Thank you to those that participated!)


NOW FOR THE FUN NEWS...  I just finished writing a little children's book.  It is not terribly long, but it is written in verse.  A dear friend challenged me to complete this, and she is going to blow everyone away with her watercolor illustrations.  So, stay tuned... 

Until later, my friends.. xo
