Giving Shelter

Ah ... something new to show! I have been cleaning and organizing my craft area {because honestly it's been such a horrible mess I couldn't move, much less find my table top!} I got this stamp, called "Giving Shelter" (Stampavie), when we were on vacation at the beach and just inked it up today. I thought the snail using a flower blossom as an umbrella was really cute and versatile too.

It may be difficult to see, but I embossed the pattern paper with the paisley cuttlebug folder. I love the cuttlebug folders - they emboss so well, but don't photograph so good. Oh well, you get the idea. I also remembered to leave out the Copic markers as I used them, so I can actually show you which colors I used on the image. I think that is a first for me! Yay me! Lol.

I also airbrushed a little around the image. I cut a smaller piece of cardstock to mask the image and used the ABS with BG10 to get a light color, then took BG72 and ran around the embossed edge. I think the effect turned out ok, but I'm not sure I like it well enough to do it again.
happy stampin'
