This is my version of a masculine fall card. I had my eye on this stamp at St Vincent dePauls for some time. It was pretty big so I hesitated. I finally broke down and spent $4.50 on it. My daughter says the image is a bear and looks like what she saw in Alaska many years ago. I don't know, I just liked it. I stamped the image then colored all of the black area with a Copic marker. I then copied it onto my computer and printed out all of these perfect images. I then filled in the color with Copics. I have 5 of the top card for OWH. The bottom 2 I am using for personal use. I used sewing on the second card. I wanted to do that with all of them but my machine wouldn't cooperate. The bottom card I used a glaze pen on the blue color. It really pops. On the top 2 cards the paper along the top was hand cut with decorative scissors. The paper is specialty paper that has a nice sheen. It was gifted to me from Australia a couple of years ago from a fellow cardmaker. I wanted to do some more cards in different colors but my mojo left the house and the images went in the trash can.
I made a dozen of this card for OWH using various colors of paper on the bottom and different rick rack colors. I had my eye on this stamp at M's for awhile. I bought it using the 50% off coupon. It is by Hampton Arts. They make the small $1 stamps you can buy at M's. This was a $13 one.
