Your Happy Place

Happy Tuesday Stampers!

Tuesdays are a new challenge at Loves Rubberstamps! This week - our Guest Sponsor is - Eureka Stamps. They offer some really fun and cute stamps in both digi and wood form.

Our team was able to create some samples using some of their fun digi sets for our challenge this week :)  The theme is KRAFT + Another Color of your choice! I love using Kraft and it looks amazing with any color it is paired with :) I am a Kraft junkie and use it on almost all my creations - I have to admit!

Here is my Inspirational piece using the Large Ostrich digi stamp from Eureka Stamps.

I colored my ostrich image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and then I put clear embossing powder over the legs, neck, and white feathers so I could mask and sponge my background scene.

After I finished the ostrich I decided to add my sentiment to the same panel. I originally stamped this in a dark blue and didn't really like how it looked...so then I tried adding white polka dots to it with a gel pen...and didn't like that either - LOL! So I went completely over my letters with the gel pen and thought it looked kind of like how a plane would write words in the sky ... so I added the little plane with a swirl of smoke so it looks like they just wrote the sentiment. LOL! The little plane and sentiment are both from the Paper Smooches Set - Get Outta Town.

I used the sketch from this week's Deconstructed Sketch #78.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to come play along in our challenge!
