Lisa *Day 5* and a Giveaway
I want to begin today by thanking Lisa for allowing me to share her work here on "Inspired by..." and for always being such an inspiration to all of us stampers! Remember you can see lots of Lisa's cheery creations HERE. This is our last inspiration photo by Lisa:The beautiful color scheme in Lisa's photo inspired me to create this: I began by inking up a Penny Black cling background by coloring it with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Markers. I spritzed my stamp before stamping. Next, I added shading directly to the stamped image using PITT Artist Pens. The center die cut was then distressed with Crushed Olive Distress Ink. The background began as white cardstock and was distressed using Worn Lipstick, Brushed Corduroy, Wild Honey, and Fired Brick Distress Ink. Sentiment by Penny Black 3380D Feel Better. Now for a giveaway--just what every Friday needs; right? :) The sweet Britta Swiderski has given me a copy of her new and exciting e-book, No-Stress Distress Inks, to giveaway. You can read more about the e-book HERE. To win, just leave a comment on this post and Britta and I will announce a winner on Monday. Be sure to include your email with your comment so we can get the book sent to you if you win! :) Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! HUGS!
