Another fabulous catalog has started and the Stampin' Addicts gang is here to show you a bunch of ideas with the new goodies! There are a lot of them in this new Mini, and I know that by the end of the sales period, I will have most of the sets!
There is, as always, a chat thread for this hop over at Stampin' Addicts, and you can get there by clicking on the banner above. There is also a master list of the blog hop stops there if you get lost along the way.
If you are following in order from the beginning, then you just arrived from Tina's blog where she did a fabulous job with the Hello Life set.
I am featuring the stamp set Wood You Be Mine? , no surprise there if you know me at all, lol! I live in the northwoods of Minnesota, near Bemidji.Timber has been a huge industry in our area since the pioneer days. Our local high school mascot is the Lumberjacks. I have 3 sons, and one of them has the nickname of Sasquatch as he is big, burly, and furry! He also cuts wood and clears brush as one of his side jobs. I had to get this set, lol!
I colored all of these images with a mix of Blendas and it was a lot of fun! If you look closely, you will see that the lumberjack has a rosy nose and cheeks. The flesh tones are all Crisp Cantaloupe in varying degrees of dilution. The beard is three of the Skin Tone Blendas.
Do you like the varying tones in the beard? And the Crisp Cantaloupe as a flesh tone?
This time I was trying to capture a feeling of the northern lights in the background with sponging on watercolor paper and then spritzing and dripping water on it. There is some shimmer to it that I got from Vanilla Smooch Spritz. The lumberjack is colored with Blendas, same as the first project. The sentiment is from Guy Greetings.
That is all for me, and now it is time to go check out what Twila Davis has in store for us!
