Potting Shed

You know, when I first saw this stamp, I thought it was an outhouse!  I had to look a little closer to see that it's actually a potting shed.  Anyway, we have an abundance of both of these stamps at work and I've been given the task of making cards with stamps we have a lot of.  That's okay, because it gives me a chance to create and that's my favorite thing to do, next to teaching classes.  Of course I colored both stamped Great Impressions images with my Copics.  I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the blue paper and one of the newer Spellbinders to cut out my main image.  The base of the card is Lasting Impressions dot embossed paper in ivory.  The blue paper was some that we had at the store but I don't know the origin and it wasn't marked.  The yellow is Bo Bunny and the paper that I stamped on is actually Bazzill.  Yep!  I stamped and colored on Bazzill!  There are a few places where the ink feathered a little but not much.  I can't get over how well it let me blend.  It was just a little experiment on my part that worked, so I was pleased.  The pearls were white so I just colored them with my BG72 and had pearls the color I wanted!  Man, I love my Copics!  I don't know how I crafted so many years without them!  Hope you enjoy my card.  I've entered it in the iCopic WC #35 as it's a cream colored Bazzill paper that I colored on.  Still can't believe how well it worked!

  1. I laughed at your comments about the outhouse/potting shed. It really is an adorable stamp and I agree Copics are just the best! I'm glad to hear you were able to color on Bazzill so well, it really does look great! Thanks for joining us this week at icopic :)
