Now I would like to show you what I have created for the new DoveArt Studios July release.  Once you have gotten your fill of me...hop love to the next DoveArt-istic Design team member to meet them and see what they have created.

I created a card using Winter Cardinals.  I love how the dots already show where possible shading could be.  It takes the work out of figuring out light source.

I added Glass glitter to the snow on the branch and cut out one of the cardinals to make it popped up.
It was a simple but sweet card to make and perfect for winter.

You are My hero

I am feeling red, white and blue today so I created this little cutie from CCDesigns Rubber Stamps.  This stamp is available July 3rd.  I know its a bit late to order for July 4th but he can be colored many colors for many occasions.   He is part of the Super Hero collection. I colored him with the no-line stamping technique.

It is my day to create something using a stamp from Little Darling rubber stamps.  I chose the new stamp "wings" from the Dollhouse collection.  I have been looking forward to coloring this stamp up since the release.  I decided to do another "no line" coloring and I am pleased with the outcome.  By stamping the image in a very light color such as a pink or a gray and colored, the image appears to have no lines.  If you have never tried this you should.  The end results are stunning.  You can find this stamp HERE.
