Stamper's Quest: Make A Wish!

Hello to all my friends!  I am wrapping up my week off.   It has been very busy - Cropping with my crafty friends and making cards ahead so I don't get behind!   You know what I mean.   Work tends to get in the way of great fun!   :D

This is a card i created with a detailed tutorial  for Stamper's Quest.  It is a FREE online magazine filled with tutorials from some wonderful artists.   It is a "must see" site!    It is always filled with great ideas.  I always learn a lot from my peers.  

I created a tutorial on making balloons look transparent.  this is a technique that can be applied to anything you want to have a transparent appearance.    It is a neat little trick that adds a lot of realism to the mage.   Of course, I couldn't resist my little doodling.  I think I will try to secretly doodle or texturize something - no matter how small on each of my images.  It pushes me a little to try something different.  You may have to look hard to find it on some crds.... but it will ALWAYS be there! :D

Since this was published in an  e-magazine, I am not permitted to post the full tutorial here.  But click this site and you will be able to view it at Stamper's Quest.  Again, it is a free e-magazine, so you have nothing to lose! :D  The price is right! LOL

I am entering this crd in the following challenge:

Awww moment for the day.   

Thank you for shopping by!   Have a wonderful Easter Week!

  2. Hello! I checked out your tutorial and it is very nicely done! Lovely job with the extra textures and I really like those browns for the wood. Copic browns are so varied and so great! Also, I had no idea Copic made an opaque white product. I have tried gel pens (they just seem to clog SO easily), and I finally got a tube of white acrylic and some nice brushes but haven't done anything with it yet.

    Thank you so much for leaving a nice comment at my place!
