Peachy Keen February Sneak Peek: Day 1


Hi there!

I'm back with a second post of the day to join some of my fellow designers in showing the new Peachy Keen  Stamps March Stamp of the Month: PKSC-27.  This is such a cute stamp set - be sure to check out the PKS company blog for lots more samples with images from this new set.



I decided to do a bit of watercoloring with the car image.  I embossed the car with white embossing powder and then used Distress Markers and a waterbrush to do some sloppy painting.  When it was dry, I used a couple of Copic markers for just a bit more subtle shading.


Some sloppy stitching, off-set scallop die cuts, flowers and cutting the heart border out of felt all made for a very 'shabby chic' finish to my card.  I did a watercolor wash on the tag as well to help the sentiment pop and added a couple of EK Success heart stickers.

Be sure to hop over to the Peachy Keen Stamps blog to leave a comment there and on the other designer's blog for your chance to the stamp we're showcasing today!  The winner will be announced tomorrow night at 6pm CST on the PKS blog.

Have a great rest of your day!
Jessica
