Inspired by...Elizabeta

It is so exciting to share that this week's featured artist is a fellow crafter, stamping all the way in Croatia!  Isn't it amazing how this hobby brings us together from all over the world?  And what's even more impressive is Elizabeta's ability to create stunning cards using limited supplies and Croatian sentiments.  I know you will love her blog- you can check it out HERE.  Here's Elizabeta's first inspiration card:
I especially love Elizabeta's beautiful color choices and fun design on her card.  Here is my take:

I began by stamping Penny Black 3645K Modesty with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to Copic X-Press It cardstock.  Next, I colored in this image using PITT Artist pens- soooo perfect for the tiny details on this stamp.  Once colored, I outlined the image with a Copic Marker (W1).  This adds a nice finishing touch/shadow. The punched scallop was punched from Penny Black Mix and Match Cardstock.  Sentimenty by Penny Black, 4175F Flourish Thank You.  The cardstock containing the sentiment was distressed with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.  And the center to the bow is a Candi dot adhered using glossy accents.

Here's a peek at what's happening on the Mementos blog today:


Thanks for popping by! See you tomorrow with another GORGEOUS card by Elizabeta!
