The video which follows is in 2 parts due to size constraints by Blogger and Youtube. It is just me making a card for Carol Phillips quarterly swap. We were challenged to use a stamp we had'nt used or mildly used that made us smile, a fun concept. I went immediately to my $1 acrylic stamps and chose a bear holding a chocolate chip cookie and added a sentiment " Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookies of life"
I will post a supply list, but I wanted to point out a technique I used in the video, and that is using Goo Gone grease remover and a Fantastix coloring tool to smooth out my Prismacolor pencil on the bear. Both the Goo Gone and the Fantastix coloring tool cost a few dollars each- Goo Gone around $1.99 at your hardware store, and Fantastix come in a pack of 5 for about the same at your craft store. The Prismacolor pencils are very expensive, but well worth it for the results using this technique. I opted for a tin of 24 Prismacolor pencils instead of Copic markers due to the price. The 24 set ran me about $19.99 with a coupon at AC Moore, and they last a really long time. I have yet to try Copic markers, but at $6.99 each, I am waiting!
Try it out , I am sure you will like the results.
