Hi Stampers, We have a post for you today from BlogStar Rhea Weigand. It’s one she sent us a couple weeks ago.
In the middle of last week Rhea suffered 3 strokes, and while she got hospital care immediately, she’s still hospitalized as of the scheduling of this post. We’d sure appreciate your prayers for Rhea and her family as she recovers from this devastating health obstacle. We’re just hoping to have Rhea’s sunny self back stamping with us soon!! If you have a cheery get well card sitting around, feel free to send it to us at Stampendous and we’ll forward it to her. You can address them to Stampendous Graphics, 1122 N Kraemer Pl, Anaheim, CA 92806.
What girl doesn’t like a little bling?
This was seriously so simple. I used Copic markers. But if you don’t have a Copic addiction any markers or watercolors even distress inks would also be Fab!!
I colored the Jumbo Cling Magnolia with my Copics first adding yellow here and there for my highlights. I then added Pirate Gold
on the edges of the pedals and leaves. Finally, paint a medium layer of glue on the background and pour on the Gold Halo Mix Glitter
. I worked in small areas to insure accuracy. Add your ribbon, I used my favorite green and gold tulle, and you’re done.
Ok, now for a confession. If you’ve watched Fran’s videos
you’ve probably heard about mistakes or mishaps that end up being awesome.
Well, After I had all the coloring done on this tag. I even colored the background which I also really liked and I embossed the edges of the pedals and leaves. I wanted to carefully place the gold Halo Mix
here and there for additional dimension and highlights.
Well, I walked away for a couple of minutes and when I returned my glue bottle had tipped, and I had a BIG glob of glue on the background. In a panic I tried to wipe it off with my finger. Nah, that didn’t work so I said to my self…”Self, you got nothin’ to loose” and poured the Gold Halo Mix on it and that is my friends is what made me decide to cover the background with the glitter. :) Keep smiling and look forward to mistakes. Because Inspiration comes from everywhere.
