Grand Opening Graphic

Hello and welcome to the blog hop of a brand new stamp company that is making its debut today – Sunny Studio Stamps. You should have arrived from Elise Constable’s blog.

First up I have made a CAS card using the Birthday Smiles stamp set. I coloured the cupcake in with Copic markers and added some Clear Wink of Stella Brush pen to the frosting.

My second card uses the Snow Kissed Stamp set. I had a lot of fun colouring this cute little penguin in with Copics. I masked off the rectangle in the background and sponged in some Distress ink to create a focal point.

…and popped him up on some mounting foam for some dimension.
