New Stuff...






*EDITED POST TO ADD CLARIFICATION AND CORRECTLY STATE WHAT COLORING TECHNIQUES.*

Hard to believe that it's already the last weekend in June. July is just around the corner now which means that 2009 is going to be past half way over. CRAZY! The end of the month is a fabulous time for me because then I can share all the fun stuff I've been making for sneak peek time with Clear Dollar Stamps.

Today I am sharing Sheltering Lights, Shining Strength, & My Little Ballerina. Sheltering Lights and Shining Strength are two sets that compliment each other. They have a lighthouse theme to them. Whereas My Little Ballerina has a cute girlie ballet theme.

I used a range of techniques. If you have any questions on all the ones I used please send me an email and I'll be happy to assist. So here we go....

The lighthouse cards were all colored with makers. One was done with Copics and the other was watercolored with markers. I have a small stash of Tombo and Impress markers that blend wonderfully on watercolor paper for this technique. To make the images really pop I be sure to emboss them first. I use Ranger's Super Fine Detail EP. It's so smooth and precise. Out of all the embossing powders I've used this one is the best and you can find it in the Clear Dollar Store.

Shining Strength can not only be used with the lighthouse set but it also works well with other stamps too. Here I mixed it up with Liberty to make a masculine card of encouragement. This card was also embossed with the Ranger EP.






My Little Ballerina was very fun to color. Here I've made a regular card and a spinner card with My Little Ballerina. On the spinner card I wanted her tutu to look meshy like a real tutu. I applied Ranger's crackle accent over the tutu when I was done coloring it and let it completely dry. Now it has the effect I was going for! Really cool!



I hope you liked my sneak peeks. I'll have more to share on Monday. Need to see more? Visit the rest of the CDStamps team. Your just gonna love all their creations!
