Pretty Lipstick

Hello, Stamping Peeps! I've been busy busting this blustery weather with some fun me time in my craft room. What better way to get through the winter doldrums! I had so much fun creating the card I have for you today. I used a couple of OBG (oldie but goodie) stamps along with a Colorful Life stencil to put together this card:

No-One Will Notice (SD1003)
Red Lipstick Day (SD687)

I started by creating an A2 card base (a great place to start, right?) and added a metallic blue piece of cardstock. On a piece of white cardstock, using my MISTI, I stamped both the sentiment and the image, then trimmed down the panel. Using some Pixie Spray (where would I be without this stuff!), I placed my stencil over my panel and began inking the areas around the sentiment and image using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I was careful to leave my stamped areas un-stenciled. I added some of the Distress Ink to the edges of the panel, then colored in the image. I went over some of the words in the sentiment, along with a couple elements in the image, using my favorite Kaisercraft Gel Pens. I attached the panel to the front of my card and added a couple baubles for interest.

I love how the card turned out and can't wait to send it to one of my friends!
