Road Trip. Yea!!!

Wednesday, December 23, 2009
The wife and I made two road trips this week. One of them was on Saturday to The Stamping Place in West Columbia, SC. Great store and we wanted to see the new releases of the Hero Arts stamps. Needless to say I bought a few. You can see the sample card that I made from one set, posted below.

The next trip was on Tuesday, to Stamps and More by Eleanor which is located in Piedmont, SC near Greenville, SC. If you get a chance visit this store. Thier motto is "Every Day Is Demo Day". If they have it in the store, they will demo it. Great learning experience. And they have a lot to demo.
For you crafty people that don't like images without noses and a mouth, here is an image that will please you. It,s from the Hero Arts new release called "Call Me". I think it's real cute.

"Call Me"

The colors used for this card are;

Dress: RV00,RV02,RV04, RV06 Hair: YR23, Y23, E35 Skin: E000, E00, E01, R20

Copic Tidbit:

Ground your images. You don't want your image hanging in the sky, so use a lighter color of the main image to be around the shadow side of the image to make it pop. You do not always have to use a grey or BG10, but use other colors that are used in the image. Don't leave a lot of white space. Mask the image and use a background stamp to fill in the white space, as I've done here.
