Charming Gardner

I started this card with this weeks SCS Sketch yesterday, but I ended up with a migraine and didn't get it finished. I tell ya, those things pop up at the most inopportune times. I mean, interrupting stamping. Really now!!

Anyway, I turned the sketch a quarter turn to the left so I could use this sweet boot image from the Impression Obsession set Charming Gardner. Now, the boots originally have tuplips and daffodils in them, so I stamped the bottom half of the boot onto Simply Smooth Ivory (Prism), masked it and then stamped the rose and daisies that are also in the set. Then, I just colored it with my copics and added a touch of sparkle with my Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter (AIG). The yummy paper is Pretty Please from My Mind's Eye, and the Beautiful Sheer Rose Ribbon is May Arts. The button is PTI and is threaded with Pink Burlap String (May Arts). I then sewed the edges and actually scored, but it's hard to see.

Michelle (Stamper's Dream) has a wonderful variety of Impression Obsession images in her store right now. They stamp beautifully with their deep etching, and they're fabulous to color. You really should go check them out. She's also selling Tombow Markers now too. Ever since I've seen Jerri Kay watercolor with them, I've wanted to try my hand at coloring with them. So, I have some on the way. Kim Teasdale (man that girl can color) even gave me a mini-tutorial, at CHA, on how to use them after taking one of Jerri's classes. Oooooo...can't wait to try them out.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you're having a fabulous week!
Happy Stamping!!

Tosh... sorry you got that migrane! They are the worst! Love your card! How fun to be able to change the flowers out and your coloring as always is gorgeous! I'll be curious to know what you think of the Tombow markers! I've just gotten started with Copics but there is a definite learning curve!!

Pretty boots, Tosh! I have this same stamp and wrinkled my brow when I saw that the flowers were different. Thanks for giving me a GREAT idea for something I already have. Hoping your feeling MUCH better.
