Size Doesn't Matter

WOW!  Talk about getting excited about new stamps!  The geek is coming out of me again.
This is one of the new sets from Kindred Stamps January Release.

Size Doesn't Matter

And I have to say, I had sooo much fun making these cards.  I even had a go at making my own backgrounds using my copic markers ( inspired by Amy Young and Jammie Clark).  And I loved how they turned out.
The first one is my favourite.  Between the character, the grass around the path and the storm clouds with the sunrays peaking through, I love the simplicity of this.  Looks almost like a postcard.


This next one was the first design I sketched for this set.  And I love the use of real chain.  I was originally going to draw the chain in but so glad I didn't.  A little 3D on a card does not hurt at all.  And I love the little smoky background behind the characters, so easy to do with Distress Oxides. 


Here is another hand drawn background.  This is the second version  The first one was a little to sandy coloured and didn't fit the mood for the theme, so then I went with my W copic family.  The  rock, the"creature"and ring are sitting on, is popped up with foam tape.  All the sentiments used on these cards are actually from this same stamp set. They fit so perfectly with the theme too!


This last one is very simple.  A mix of oxides to make the background then copic for the trees.  I felt it needed something else so I added the ferns to make it look like a little snap shot of these fellows, walking on a log, on their journey.  

I hope you enjoyed my creations  as much as I did making them.

    2. MIchelle the rock background was just random hand drawn stones to fit together in pencil first. Then started with the darkest colour (in between rocks) then worked my way to the centre of each stone, from darkest to lightest.
