Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Monthly Archives: August 2012

One of my favs in the digi stamp world is Michelle Perkett. Her designs are so beautiful and totally awesome to color!!

She’s having a 50% off sale that may entice you to try some of her stamps. Pay in full then she’ll refund you back 50%. How cool is that? The sale is on through Thursday, August 23rd 5 PST.

Check out her etsy store: Michelle Perkett Studio

Let’s get back into sharing some projects that I’ve been working on. Granted these are relatively quick and easy as compared to scrapbook pages, but I’m still using my supplies and creating. It feels good.

I’ll share some ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) and cards that I’ve done recently. I had a lot of fun making them, mostly because I’m using stamps from my vast collection. I can’t even tell you how many I have because I don’t know!

I’ll also share some class samples from a Copic coloring online class that I’m taking from Melissa & Kristy at Created from Color. Even though I’m Copic Certified, I’m sure that I’ll learn and practice more techniques on coloring skin, hair and using a light source. ¬†Kristy owns Some Odd Girl stamp company (digis and clear) and I just love her images and coloring samples.

My share today is a card using a sketch from CPS (Card Positioning Systems) and color combo from Color Throwdown. Take a look:
