TSG Sneak Peek #2


Hello again!!!

What do you think of this cute Set called *Slow and Steady*??? Isn't it super cute???

I did a little masking with this Set.....this is one technique I haven't done in a while, but I think it turned out okay?!? Did you see my cute little sponged clouds - he,he,he???

I started out stamping the snail twice with the Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. The second snail was cut out and layered on top of the original stamped image. Next I inked and colored the grass in Wild Wasabi.

Then I punched out a Scalloped Circle with the SU Punch cutting it in half. Before I started sponging my clouds I added the little *dragonfly*. With a fine pencil I drew the line I wanted to pierce the little loop -I gently erased the line after. Next I started sponging around the scalloped edged repositioning it to my liking. The snail and the dragonfly were colored with Copic Markers - E00, N1, R08 and E47.

I used Kraft, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White CS for my card. The Tangerine Tango was embossed with the Swiss Dots CB folder. The sentiment was also inked in Memento Ink and punched out with 1 1/4" plus 1 3/8" Circle Punches. The main image and the circled sentiment were raised with Stampin' Dimensionals. At the end I added some Copper Brads.

For the inside I used a 4th Set Jessica is releasing. It's called *Holidays Galore* - it is an all *Sentiment Set*. When I created this card my oldest daughter Sarah thought this Set was awesome....what she didn't know was...... it's *her* Birthday card!!! My baby is turning 11 years on Saturday - I can't hardly believe it!!!
