Thank You for Being Amazing


Happy Monday!

I didn't think I needed the Center Cut Heart background stamp from Simon Says Stamp until I saw what Yana Smakula did with it.  You can see her card and video by clicking right here.

I followed her lead for the design of the card by using white embossing powder and only one colored pencil plus a white colored pencil.  She used a lovely light pink, and I selected a pencil with a fuchsia tone.

The whole trick to this design is to stop before you do too much.  I think it would have been easy to color in more of the design.  But holding back just gives the card more impact I think.

I also stamped and die cut a bow from the Bows for You stamp and die set available from The Stamp Market.  I am a total sucker for a good bow stamp!  And this set has two, plus some tags and sentiments.

I hope you will watch Yana's video and be inspired to break out some pencils!  I am a novice with pencils, but I am starting to love them.

See you again tomorrow!
