Karen's Doodles Love Me Forever

How cute are these guys? I love that their necks make the shape of a heart. This digi stamp from Karen's Doodles is called Love Me Forever.


I sized and printed the image using Adobe Photoshop Elements onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Giraffes - YR12, E99, R21
Bow - R83
Grass - G40, G231, E51
Rocks - E70
The paper is from Chloe's Closet by Making Memories.  The saying is from Hero Arts.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

I attended a Stamp and Scrap Art Tour convention this past Saturday and it seems every booth had grunge paper flowers.  So I came home and played with my Tim Holtz grunge paper and Marvy flower and McGill leaf punches.  I airbrushed both the flowers and the leaves.  I embossed the flower with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I stamped a weathered wood pattern onto the smaller orange flower.

The previous post also has a grunge flower that I created with an EK Success Whale of a Punch again embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder.  The leaves on that flower were punched out with a McGill punch and then stamped with coordinating leaf stamps by Serendipity stamps.  Again, I airbrushed them with my Copics.  The center flower is another McGill punch over stamped with the same weathered wood stamp.

I also made a gorgeous rose that will be on a future project so you will have to wait.  But you can see how I made it here on Wendy Vecchi's blog.  These flowers are quite addictive!
