Bee strong!

February 27, 2018

Hi there,

it's Tanja her and ever since I saw that cute little bee from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bee strong set I wanted to color her with rainbow colors:

  • stamp the little bee from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bee strong set with Memento Tuxedo Black and color her with Delta, Copic and Touch Twin Brush Markers and add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • add highlights with a white gel pen and sparkle with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • cut out a stitched panel from Bristol Smooth cardstock and create a background with Distress Oxide Inks (Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, Salty Ocean, Lucky Clover, Wilted Violet)
  • apply some more Distress Oxide Ink Wild Honey through the ARTplorations Honeycomb Delight Mini stencil
  • cut out a spinner channel with the help of one of the My Favorite Things Circle Spinner Channels and complete the interactive set up with two layers of foam tape
  • stamp the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Bee strong set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with ZING Butter embossing powder


I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Santa and a Kitten

October 19, 2018

This was such a fun image to color. I do have to admit, I am a dog person but, with all these adorable kitty stamps from Gerda Steiner I am slowly becoming a kitty person, too!

I colored the Santa and Kitty image with Copic markers onto 80# cardstock and fussy cut it out. I ran a black pen along the image which really helps cover the mistakes I made in my fussy cutting.
