Love You Sloooooow Much!

Good Morning Stampers!

I finally had enough of my no crafting streak and took time yesterday to make a card! This is the first thing I have made since the beginning of April so go easy on me - LOL! I forgot how relaxing it is to just sit and color and craft. I sure have missed it!

My daughter's birthday is coming up on October 24th so I wanted to make her a birthday card. I decided to go all out and figured since I have not made anything for so long and haven't touched a copic marker since April...what the heck...I will try something I have never done and just go for it. So I colored my image in the NO LINES technique!! I don't think it turned out to horrible for my first time but I still need lots of practice :)

I used the super adorable image from the Whimsy Wee Stamps Collection called Love You Slow Much. I love this one and hadn't inked it up yet. That snail is tooooo CUTE!! The scrabble tile looking letters are from Whimsy Stamps also and are called Spell It Out. These will be listed in the store soon!

Here are some close ups of my image...

I really LOVE how my little snail turned out :) I am not too sure about my fairy, I think her hair could be better. I think I tried too hard to not get the "banding" in her hair so my flicks were fatter than I wanted. Like I said I still need to practice :)

I also finished the inside too...

I used two different Tiddly Inks stamp sets to create the inside - the verse sentiment and hearts are from the stamp set called My I Love You and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from the stamp set called Ellie Says Happy Birthday. 

I used warm colors for my card this week since that is our Loves Rubberstamps Challenge to use Warm Colors on your card. So we hope you play along with us! We have some great sponsor prizes!

I also used this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge for my layout...

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope now that I broke my no-crafting streak I will get back in the swing of making things on a regular basis again :)

OMGosh Yeah, this is so adorable, I love it. You don't look out of practice to me at all and I think her hair and your no lines came out fabulous. So happy you finally got crafty. Your daughter will love this.
