Has anyone else noticed their following list drop followers? I've noticed the following numbers at the top drop from 311 to 310, then to 309 but I'm not able to find missing names. So don't know if I've lost 2 followers or Blogger is messing with my mind! I hope it's just Blogger acting up.
The image used on today's card was colored a while back, from a previously stamped Heartfelt image. Glossy Accents (or the similar Stampin Up product) applied to the vase and the flower centers, but alas, it does not show in the photo. I really like the this look to add a bit of shine on such objects - also makes it look quite dimensional.
- Heartfelt image colored with copics, die cut with a S/B matting basic rectangle.
- Brusho background (Cobalt Blue, Emerald Green & some orange) was die cut with a Sue Wilson background die. The Brusho orange bits were in the center of the background, and as usual, that part cut out & saved for a later project. This piece was placed over a not-quite navy/not-quite teal piece of textured c/s and then placed on a white card base.
- Elizabeth Craft die cut sentiment from a snippet of white c/s, colored with YR to try to match the orange/peach blossoms. Looks quite orange-y in the photo.
This is a nice image to color...lots of opportunities for some good shading & highlights. I think the most difficult was coloring the wood background to try to make it look patina'd. Started with a base layer of Copic W0, W1, then experimented with some of the gray-green shades, adding as the last layer, some BG0000.
Here is Misti - I ordered 4 of the super magnets and the other supplies recommended by Iliana - who conceived the idea and designed the product. There is a clear cling cover sheet to place on the cover grid plate but I didn't realize this, until watching a video showing how to properly apply it. Looked, and this item wasn't in my package. Fortunately, the shipping box was still in our recycle boxes, so double checked that it had not been left in the box. Nope; that evening emailed Iliana, who responded very promptly and said she would ship one next day. She did and it's been received. Now how great is that for good & fast customer service! Also advised all my Misti owner buddies that my protective cover sheet was missing, so they could check that they had it. (yeah, they all did!). The top cover of Misti is shown open in the photos here.
Additional graph paper pack, the soap cleaner recommended to clean the surfaces, and 4 super magnets. Shipping was very speedy which was a very pleasant surprise.
If you are interested in this product - which is great if you are doing assembly line images - do check out My Sweet Petunia for the FAQ, international shipping, etc. I've been watching some Youtube videos, & reading high praise of Misti on many blogs too. . Haven't had a chance to play with mine yet, but I'll let you know how I like it. I'm thinking I will like it - LOTS! And no, I don't work for the company either!! LOL.
Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Things are quiet around our house, as it's looking like some rain could come in. Hope your afternoon is going just great. God Bless, big Hugs.
