Roses of Love

I restocked some Make it Crafty stamps in the store but I splurged and kept one for myself.  This is Roses of Love colored on Gina K cardstock.  I wanted to focus on using Distress Inks for the background so I kept the rest of the card simple. 


Distress Inks: Hickory Smoke, Iced Spruce, Bundled Sage And Peeled Paint
Copics: YG97, 95, 93, 91, V28, 25, 22, 20, BV11

Oak Tree Girl

This cute stamp is Oak Tree Girl from Wee/Whimsy Stamps.  I had fun coloring this one and adding all the autumn leaves.  I've been looking for robins when I travel because I remember them from when I was a kid.  I don't see them here in Texas or maybe they are just seasonal.  Most of the birds that I colored in the past were blue so this was a nice change. 


The face is actually the best part for enjoyment.  I love to give extra details and to brighten the eyes so this shows a comparison of a before and after.  The original eyes were used for the pupils and I built up the rest around them with Copics.
