Mountain Song

Hi all,

Andrea here today to share this card I made using the gorgeous New stamp 'Mountain Song' it just oozes tranquility so the sentiment 'Life is Beautiful' from the 'Perfectly Beautiful sentiments stamp' was a perfect match for this card.

Unfortunately I don't have a list of Copic marker colours to share with you this time, sorry. 
I stamped the image three times and chose to only colour the one and pop it up on top of the other two.  I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by

Hop Hop Hop - Egg Hunt

We hope you enjoyed the hop and the new release from CCDesigns and DoveArt Studios.  If you are just starting on the DoveArt Studios blog be sure and start at the beginning and follow the links below to multiply your chance at winning a new release stamp of our choosing.

This hop featured 12 new stamps ranging from Easter, Southwest, oriental, in the woods, magical and country.  Something for everyone!  We really hope you were inspired!

I had fun coloring Egg Hunt background.  I know its hard to think Easter quite yet but I thought I would make this available to you early so you have time to create something fabulous after the dust settles from Christmas.  Plus by now you might be tired of coloring everything red and green and need some color in your life.

This stamp is a full background stamp that can be cut down, cut out, popped up, colored monochromatic with color pop and so much more.  I colored it twice and cut a layer out of one image to pop it up in the center and give it dimension. I know it is hard to see in the photograph.  It is a very therapeutic image to adult coloring but better!

My card features the DoveArt Studios ~ Winter Lake.  This is the beautiful image that I colored for the recent holiday release and I thought I would share it with you again over here.  I colored it in with Copic Sketch Markers.

Country Porch

Hello and welcome back to DoveArt Studios!  Rhea here today to share some inspiration with Jennifer Dove's New Release Country Porch.

This was such a fun image to color up!  And really represents the area where I live so I felt like a was coloring a part of my small country town.  I admit I used a ton of Copic Colors for this I couldn't even begin to list them all.  I just went with what I was feeling and it was wonderful to lose myself in this amazing image.

Until next time....

Christmas with the Harvest Wreath

Hi Everyone,

Just popping in to share my project featuring the Harvest Wreath Rubber Stamp

I thought I would try water coloring the stamp and used my Derwent Inktense pencils. I love how vibrant they are but I definitely need practise!

I thought it would be fun to create a funky background so I used a Tim Holtz splatters stencil and inked it with distress inks layering up all the colours as I moved the stencil around and then I used a mini mister to wet it to help the colours mix and soften a little.

To tie it all together, I fussy cut around the image so I could pop it up, and then finished with a sentiment and a few little embellishments.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to add the  Harvest Wreath Rubber Stamp to your wishlist for this year's Christmas cards!
