Sneak Peek: Framed Friends

Here is a 4 1/4 " square card I made with Asela's new set "Framed Friends". It's really cute for making kind of "pocket-sized" Valentines (you'll see!) . Knowing me, I had to start by inking up her "snail mail" image! (if you've gotten mail from me before, then you know it is snaaaaaaaaaaaaaail maaaaaaaaail!!!)

I used my postage decorative edge scissors which I think is so cute with this stamp (and looking at my sample now, I see I was holding my scissors" upside down"!! the bumps are facing out instead of in!! sigh, oh well! you wouldn't have noticed, right??) The hearts are stamped on Real Red CS, outlined with a Lipstick Red Copic, highlighted with the Inkssentials white pen, and popped up on dimensionals at the corners. It was fun choosing greetings from the set to frame up my "Framed Friend" even more! Snail image is colored with Copics.

  4. Very cute. I LOVE how you added all the special little details...even the hearts have their little white accents. You are such an inspiring artist, I look forward to your new postings. They always make me smile, and then drool (my cubicle buddies think I'm a tad "off"). P.S. I nominated you for a new blog award, check it out on my blog.
