Another batch





Here it is!  This is the one I lost on yesterday's post. Never did find it. Probably floating in cyber space somewhere! Do all the dots do funny things to your eyes?  I didn't think of that when I started punching all those spots. I was getting sick of the same old shapes. I just finished a lesson on geometry and the rhombus came to mind. ( Geometry in  grade 1? Go figure.) Then  I decided to make the giraffe "out of the box".
Kind of fun. I added a little hair to the critter with my cocoa pen, punched the spots away with hand held punches, rimmed them with a Sakura iridescent pen and popped it up on the rose layer. Papers and ink are Apricot and Regal rose with a swipe of bashful blue shading on the white. The ribbon was white grosgrain until I used my markers on it. 

Monochromatic (sort of) was the idea for this. I'm am still limiting 
myself to what I can use. I am finding it so much easier to create  as the images are already done and I don't have to agonize over what set to use! No choices on paper either, only the scrap box. I am having a field day with the DP paper. I have so much and rarely use it. Not any more. This is the saffron DSP, mustard accents, banana ribbon, a teeny little crystal from Hero Arts. The coloring was done with water color crayons and blender pen. These are really growing on me. "Friend" is from the Beautiful Blooms set at Paper Trey Ink


Oh, I feel like I'm entering the big time! I finally used my Nesties and my cuttlebug. They were burried in a drawer. I really think limiting myself is turning into a good thing!
This is a  Lochhart stamp from Ellen Hutson. I used the WC Crayons again and an aqua painter this time. Cut and embossed the layers with my one and only set of Nestabilities ( for now ). Layered them all with dimensionals. Papers are River Rock ( get it now w
hile still available), bashful blue and artichoke. I used the SU small oval punch and the designer lable punch. The ribbon was ivory and I added the green and blue marker. 
The message is from PTI. It is their Mixed Blessings set.

Well, "Cookie" is here and wants to dance. Good exercise, right?
Have a great night.
