With All My Love

Hi my friends, it’s Saturday and back with a new card :-) some might have seen this card already over on Just Magnolia ~ Just Hanglar. I made the card using Mina’s fabulous sketch. At first i must say i was kind of intimidated but once i picked my papers i enjoyed it. This Basic Grey paper pad is one of my all time favorites. There are lots of cards on my blog using this paper… mostly combined with my sweet Hanglars :-)

So my image is this time water colored… stamped a few more out and i hope i can get them colored in this weekend and than during the week i was thinking to look for nice sketches online and just do the embellishing.

 While i was trying to find how i should color her dress i opened several of my ink bottles and noticed something surprising. Usually i use Stampin up re inkers but i can not deny that i did not get infected by the Distress Ink-bug as well. Of course i had to buy several colors of the bottles too!

But what really surprised me is that there are so many colors just identical to Stampin up colors! This yellow is Stampin up Barely Banana and it is the same color as the yellow Distress ink. HOWEVER what i like about SU collection is that they have So Saffron, YoYo Yellow, Marigold Morning and so on.. which makes it so much easier to add the shades to the clothes. I have tried several times to color faces with Vintage photo and to me it is simply a brown color. Maybe i do not dilute it enough but Stampin up’s Blush Blosson IS a nice natural skin color and so easy to use – unfortunately this color is now retired. I got the other day an extra bottle off Ebay- just in case.

Anyhow.. just wanted to give my 5 cents, and i think since i have said all that i think i need to mention that I am NOT a Stampin up Demonstrator and not affiliated with the company in any way!

What you’re saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what you’re trying to say. I’m sure you’ll reach so many people with what you’ve got to say.

Shelly said...

Hi Claudia, your card is stunning. I especially love your water coloring. I think some people use Tattered Rose with the Vintage Photo for skin colors. Otherwise, you do just get a plain brown. I hope you have a great week.

Wonderful card! So great colors!

Karen said...

Beautiful card!
Vintage photo IS brown but Distress Ink 'Tattered Rose' is lovely for skin colour when it is diluted down and a litle stronger for a 'blush' on the cheeks.

pst said...

Beautiful card, I love the colors you used and can only dream about coloring as good as you do.

Hugs, Petra
