I'm so excited to be doing some more Guest Designing for Art Impressions Stamps! Totally LOVE me some Girlfriends as you know, but you'll be seeing some of their other great stamps too. This set is called "Girlfriends Laughing".
Now if you think my coloring looks a bit different on this one that's because I used Prismacolor pencils. I had been a bit frustrated with my pencil results and thanks to a discussion with some of my SugarPea team mates, I found one way to help with that. I had been using the cheapie blending stumps I had bought at Hobby Lobby. It seems no matter how hard I rubbed there was no blending going on and I was left with ruts and shiny streaks. I ordered several packages of the #2 ProArt Blending Stumps from 7 Kids College Fund. Talk about a HUGE difference! If you've been having the same problem you might want to switch to these.
I still have a LONG way to go and a LOT to learn about using pencils, but I sure like using them better now that I have the right stumps.
This set comes with three different sentiments. I added mine to the inside of the card.
Thank you all for making this such a wonderful week with all your lovely comments. I know I've been super slow in getting around to visit you all. It's been another rough week. Still no answers on what's going on with me, but they are scheduling me for an upper scope shortly. One good thing has come out of all this being a couch potato, I'm getting lots of coloring done. LOL
Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend. Think hubby and I are going to venture out later and take in Draft Day. I know Kevin Costner hasn't had too many great movies out in a while, but I've always liked him. Hmmm???? Wonder if that's mostly because my hubby looks a LOT like him? LOL
Don't give up on me. I'll be around as soon as I can.
