Featured Stamper

Sandra, aka B-gin-r, is the featured stamper on Splitcoaststampers today. I cased her beautiful Gorjuss Blossom card. I used a different stamp set, colors, removed one of the panels from my sketch, paper pierced only, distressed my cardstock, used oval shape for my image, and used the curly label punch and sentiment in place of the flowers she used.

This Tilda image was one sent to me by my friend Tracim (thanks, Traci!), so I don't know the exact name of it. I believe the Tilda images are some of my most favorite to color with my Copic markers. I'm still learning a lot on how to use them, and one of the places I'm learning from is the Copic Creations blog where they provide instruction.

I used my Coluzzle oval cutter to cut out the Tilda image from my cardstock, and I wanted a little bit of the out-of-the-box technique, so I sized it accordingly. I haven't distressed cardstock in a long time, so I added that technique to my card as well.

Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, Cameo Coral, Ballet Blue

There she is...I've been waiting to see Tilda in your gallery! Thanks for sharing the link to copics too, Charlene, I need all the help I can get!
This is darling, love her in red and blues, and I like her out of the box too! All your additions add so much charm, too! Did you get your curly label punch replaced?
Hugs, Traci
