Next I stamped the images into each section and colored them with a few browns and a gold just a bit darker than the CS, and added shadows with a warm gray. I pieced the clock face with some Pure Luxury Ivory, and added a few highlights for shine on the chain and key and to the hour glass and bifocal lenses, doesn't that make it look like real glass?! Much more than if you'd stamped on white paper, on this Soft Sand neutral the reflection really pops and makes it look transparent, so don't be afraid to go a little darker with your cardstocks when you are stamping your images to color. "Memories" from the set is stamped on the bottom. I love how the boxes also compartmentalize each piece like a separate memory. ("Memories...in the corners of my miiiind..! LOL! ) At first glance these sets don't seem like they'd go together, but I am just beyond thrilled with how this card turned out!
TIP: I did NOT mask the watch, just stamped it over the grid. To get rid of where the lines went through my image, I went over them with the Inkssentials white pen and colored as normal with my Copics, a perfect fix! This works on a light colored CS, try it!
The next peek uses Rupa Shevde's "Are We There Yet?" Full of travelling images, I chose to paper piece this "good times van" with some Basic Grey Sultry DP and popped it up. The little leafy branches from "Tropical Flowers" were a perfect match for the DP so I added a few of those to the top to complete the scene for an off-roading adventure to go with the trail-blazing quote! How's that for a girlfriend's getaway or "just be you!" card? The sateen flowers were colored with Copics to match.
Cardstock is Pure Luxury White , Chocolate Kiss and, how do you like this new juicy Green Apple releasing this month?! It is the perfect green, I could eat it up!!
