...Is such a fantastic stamp set! Ok, so you might have heard by now, but just in case you havent...Cammie created this set in honor of her Grandmother, who suffered from Alzheimer's. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of this set are being donated by Cammie (and with Gina K Designs) to the National Alzheimer's Association in her Grandmother's honor. I was so touched by Cammie's post about it. And now, so many have gotten involved...on Sept. 21st, National Alzheimer's Day, Cammie is having THE biggest blog candy EVER! You can read all about it HERE!!
Ok, now for my card:
These images are such fun to color. I tried to make the basket look 'weathered'...sorta mildewy...like the one I have, haha! Also, I have a tip on coloring apples that I learned when doing acrylic painting and have found it works with copics and my koh-i-noor pencils too. For my apples, I used copic marker R08 (vermilion) first all over the apple, then I took E09 (burnt sienna) and made a shading on the left hand side, then went back with R08 to blend them out. I left a little white spot for a highlight. Final step and the tip...take your black pencil, I used koh-i-noor, and make just one line on the very left hand side. It doesnt take much of the pencil, dont make a thick line, just a very thin one...then blend it with your OMS and blending stump into the red. This gives it a much deeper shading...if you prefer that. I am by NO means a coloring expert! But thought I would share that.
Ok, thats it for now! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
