May10 ISC

This is Fancy Frame Window, Stonewash Canvas, stamped with Flourishing Ivy by Innovative Stamp Creations, the inside is by Stampabilities. All I did was highlight the image with a white gel pen. I went around the window also with a Mulitliner and gel pen.

May10 closup I love the texture of this!

May10 scallopI took my black Copic down the scalloped edges, then dotted with my gel pen. The card measures 5x7.

My next card uses Cross Window, Kraft, 5x7.

May10 cross odb_edited-1This is from the set, For the Graduate, by Our Daily Bread designs. I stretched out the image to cover the front by stamping just a part of the image again to the right of the cross. It's colored with Copics, highlighted with white gel pen. The clouds turned out kinda cool as I used my old template and sponged off the edge with Adirondack Snow Cap...my template has lots of layers of ink on it which sponged off with the white!

May10 cross closup rt I positioned the scripture so it would show through the cross opening.

May10 cross side

I hope you've enjoyed the hop thus far!! So many creative, fabulous things to see!! Now, it's time to move on to Gerrie's blog to see what she has waiting for you!!

Thanks for stopping!
