Tiny Gilded Turkey

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Right in time for Thanksgiving I am excited to offer you my first holiday card – the tiny gilded turkey!  The cards are 3.5 x 5 (envelope included) and are blank inside making them perfect to send as well wishes for the holiday or thank you to your host and/or hostess for the festive day.  The turkey image is from a vintage letterpress block on my vintage letterpress machine.  Each one is individually hand printed on Crane Lettra paper.  You can feel the imprint of the image pressed into this lush paper, giving you pause, because this feels like something special.

Get ‘er Done – Advanced Copic Retreat

Get 'er done

We were given the paper and an uncolored image.  The exercise was to choose the colors for the image that would coordinate color-wise with all the papers we were given.  The fun thing about this image is that one of the sponsors of the Retreat, Little Miss Muffet Stamps, created the “Jennifer” stamp in the image of our instructor, Copic Bootcamp/Retreat creator, Jennifer Dove. The sentiment is one of Jennifer’s favorite sayings to keep us all moving!

Cherry Blossoms – Tombow watercolor

IMG_8730

Online Card Classes has a class that is all about exploring different watercolor mediums. It is terrific! For this piece I used a Cherry Blossom stamp from Roi in Korea.  Stamped it in Versamark ink on Distress Watercolor cardstock and heat embossed it with Ranger Gold embossing powder.  I used Tombow Dual Brush pens and water to color in the image and the background. To finish it off, I applied Versamark ink around the edges and heat embossed them with  the same Gold embossing powder.
