New Hanna's are in the house!
Release week at Hanna Stamps is always a blast. The uber talented design team always have great sneak peeks for you and on Monday the 9th of April, we'll have a fun release party over in the member forum.
This image is from the Mommie's to be set, one of several images of expectant mother's. She happens to be my favourite image from the set.
I wanted to keep this card clean and simple, with an emphasis on the image, so using minimal layers and no designer paper seems to have assisted in achieving that effect. I used Certainly Celery Cardstock, with Brilliant blue as a complimentary colour. I filled my image in with copic markers, shading the middle of the sunflowers with different levels of brown and then dotting with black and white to make them look more realistic. I love the way that Candice Lighty, one of my DT sisters blends some colour outside of her images, so I gave it a try.......... I like the effect. Some Prima Flowers, Organdy Ribbon and a few dewdrops give the card a fresh spring look...........speaking of spring, I think it's arrived..it's been raining like crazy this week and everything is starting to look nice and green. Ahhh just the way I like it..........no snow and trees budding!!!
The sentiment is a $$ stamp from M's
