Well, well, well,
look who's dusted off her keyboard and is posting
I haven't been able to create much over the last year, but
I made it a priority (of sorts) to create some card art when
my brother from another mother, Mark Gould
told me he
And not just any stamps, but some really lovely art
that is reminiscent of tattoo line art with a Steampunk flair.
First up is a card I made for my father's 70th birthday,
I love how you can really make the image for any man,
of any age, just by adjusting your color palette.
Since my father is now 70, I used distinguished grays to
color his hair and beard. I have to say this gentleman does have
more on top than my dad, but he still enjoyed the card and
This gorgeous lady is called,
I am pretty chuffed with how this card turned out.
Not too bad for a dusty, old chick.
Me, not Gypsy Rose.
The size of these stamps allows you the freedom to get really
nice blends and should be a dream to color in any medium.
I chose my papers out of my coveted Graphic 45 stash of
Rare Oddities, and let them dictate my Copic coloring palette.
There are two more stamps in Mark's current line, so be sure to pop
by Chocolate Baroque
and check them out. They are currently on sale,
and you get even more bang for your buck if you buy all four stamps
And do yourself one more favor and pop by Marks's blog
, or follow him
on face book
to see all the cool schtuff this guy's doing. He's all over the
place teaching, and creating. Quite a talented chap.
Again, you're welcome.
