Oh Say Can You See Blog Hop




'I'I'm so glad you could join the Scrapbook News and Review Blog Hop today. If you came from Jennifer's blog then you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop on over to SNR Cardiverse and start from the beginning. So, this is my contribution to the blog hop today. My red, white, and blue card features an adorable stamp from Sugar Nellie. I just received in one of their grab bags and fell in love with it. What a sweet image. I colored the little girl with copic markers. To make the tricycle seem more realistic, I colored it with my red smooch paints to give it a metallic sheen. It is a little hard to tell in the picture, so I included a close up of the tricycle. I also used the white smooch on the handlebar grips and the little square in the middle of the handlebars. I think it really added a more realistic look to the triclycle. The smooch
paints are extremely easy to use on stamped images since the brush is so fine, you can get in all the small areas and not have to worry about going out of the lines. I added a little of the copic spica glitter pens to the flowers on her shirt and the patches on her jeans to give her just a little more bling. Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you have had a lot of fun checking out all the great red, white, and blue projects, but now it is time for you to hop on over and visit Cindy's Blog and see what she has in store for you next.
