Published in Somerset Studios

Thursday was a fun day. I returned home to find the latest Somerset Studios magazine in my mailbox, as they had published 2 of my cards from the call for art for Alice in Wonderland. I had taken pictures before submitting them and would like to share them here and to mention that the stamps are from Oxford Impressions, as the stamp credits are missing in the magazine writeup. Of course, their photography is much better than mine and they staged them really nicely, but you get the idea.

This card uses images from the Bonbon plate and background text from the China Dolls plate from Oxford Impressions. It's my take on the coveted item, lovingly torn out and the page saved from the catalogue. For boys, I think it used to be bicycles and wagons, and in my imagination, the girls would have loved the dolls and the tea sets.

This card uses a wonderful image from the Stampsmith. The image is coloured with waterbased markers, used as paint. The heart was cut with a cuttlebug die in my Wizard. The word phrase is done with a dymo label maker. Does Cupid have you in sight?

Some Valentine cards

I like the simplicity of this. The decorative paper pulls this all together very well. The stamped image is coloured with waterbased markers applied by paintbrush.
The images are all Oxford Impressions.

This card is coloured with both Copic markers and the airbrush and overstamped with distress inks. The hearts are made on my KNK electronic diecutter, using a file by Mary. All stamps are Oxford Impressions.

I really like this image for the haunting quality she has. The stamped image is coloured with waterbased markers, applied as paint. All stamped images are by Oxford Impressions.

This girl is so Parisian, I thought she was perfect for outside the candy shop. She is coloured with waterbased markers, used as paint. The store image is coloured with Copic markers. All stamps are Oxford Impressions.
