Half Full

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope your week began on with a fantastic start. Mother's Day was terrific. I had a wonderful time with my son I even talked him into wearing my favorite color for Mother's Day. I'll try to remember to post a photo of the two of us before the week's end.

This weekend I was a vendor at the Blooming Arts Festival in Reisterstown, Maryland. Although the rains arrived than I hoped, we managed to have a successful day before the downpour. A big thanks to everyone that supported The Peddler's Gallery with a kind word or a purchase or two.

I still have a crush on some of the latest releases from Stamping Bella. This have been a big hit with lots of people and the card is terrific for just about any celebratory occasion.

Of the seven photos, I have tried to create a different look for each stamp.

As you can see, each dress differs from the next.

I used various Copic Markers to cast highlights, skin tones, 
and hair color.

I'm not sure if you can see, but I highlighted the hair as I often to create
 volume. Fortunately, I am enrolled in a Copic hair and skin color class
 next month. Perhaps, I'll get better.

I also love the fact this is a CAS card--clean and simple.
Well, what do you think?

Does this make you want to pull out your Copics?

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Hi Lorie:

As usual you have created some beautiful and colorfil cards. I can really see your attention to detail in through shading and highlight of the hair and around the woman. I don't know why you are taking a class you should be teaching the class! I still fondly remember your birthday crafting party from of few years ago. I learned what you do is not easy, but also fun. Thanks so much for sharing your passion and skill with me.

Oh, my mother read and enjoyed your book!

Take care,

I am so happy to see you blogging on a regular basis.
Your cards are works of art; i am amazed how the coloring of them makes the images seem like they might have been from different stamps. The moods of your ladies really shine through.
Glad i met you and hope that i run into you at another show.
