I recently purchased the Tim Holtz set "Hipster" of real-red-Rubber [unmounted] stamps and it was the goat I grabbed to use first. The CS I chose to use is 80# Neenah - "Desert Storm". Copics are my medium of choice - but I really wanted to use my Prismacolor Pencils with this image & CS combination. The plaid on the suit is my addition, it is not part of the stamp.
I am essentially a beginner with Pencils - have so much to learn. My dream would be to have the skills of this blogger, artist and my friend, Shani Thomas at Paperesse. Someday, my friend, I will develop the smooth blending skills for which you are known! Please keep giving me pointers!
The large size stamp, plus my design concept of elevated layers [creating the "white space" essential for a CAS style] made it necessary to make an envelope to fit. Cut from a sheet of hoarded 12 x 12", there was enough left over to mat the white CS inside for my personal message.
Once completed, I immediately chose the recipient and occasion - and when mailed and received, I will be back to describe the circumstances. It is a convoluted story that deserves another post!
Create wildly and color with abandon!
