Hi everyone! I have recently fallen in love with Elzybells stamps. They are sooo cute! So I joined an Elzybells swap too. This first card is stamped on PTI white with Palette Noir ink and watercolored with Twinkling H2O's. They were all the rage a couple years ago sort of like Copics are now, and I just HAD to have them. I really do like them, just don't use them that much. Hence my decision NOT to invest in Copics! Anyway I thought they'd be perfect for this card. The sentiment is a mixture of two--"you're my Prince Charming" and "my knight in shining armour"--I used a marker and Stamp-a-ma-Jig to fix it like I wanted it.
This is my other EB swap--just watercolored with SU pads. Stickles on the snowdrops and pink flower centers. Card base is Gina K Luxury CS 120 lb. and Luxury is right! It is to die for.
This last card is one that I made for DH for our anniversary. This is a pic of it closed. The castle and dragon are Lizzie Anne Designs, others are Elzybells. Again colored with Twinkling H2O's.
This is the card opened. I was going for a 3-D effect. You start with a piece of CS 4.25" x 11". Score at 1", 2", 3.75", 5.5", and 8.25". Accordian fold and embellish as desired. Examples: snowy hills, sand dunes, grassy hills, etc.
