From The Heart Stamps – Midweek Design Team Inspiration

I’m here today with a little Mid-Week DT Inspiration for From The Heart Stamps!  My card today is colored with Copic Markers using the “Hot Chick Flamingo.”   For the background I added 91% Alcohol with cotton tips after adding a base color of marker.  I love how the alcohol reacts and makes a fun background.

I hope you’ll stop by this week to check out both the Sketch Challenge and the Stamp of the Month Challenge at the From The Heart Stamps Blog. 

MidWeek 6-29

I look forward to seeing you over at the From The Heart Stamps Blog  and in the Facebook Community.  We really love to see your work.

From The Heart Stamps Sketch #141

Hello friends!  Happy Monday!  I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps.  These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image – the rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to make an easel card!  If you’ve never made an easel, here’s a great tutorial from Split Coast Stampers. 

Sketch141

I used only the sketch this week and turned it around for fun. My image is called, “Precious Gift” which I colored up with Sakura Glaze pens.  These are so luscious.  The design paper is DIY by Simple Stories.  I finished off with some faux stitching and a few enamel dots.
