What would YOU do for a Klondike Bar?

I am so excited today! This is my first official post as a Design Team member for Viva Las Vegastamps! When I saw these stamps, The Woman and the Sentiment, I had to have them! I was laughing at the ideas that came to me for a card. 


I started off by stamping the woman image on glossy paper with Ancient Page Black Coal ink. I then coloured her in with a watercolour brush, a bit of water, and Tombow markers. She was then cut out and sponged with distress inks. She is layered on patterned paper, then the sentiment was stamped on the same paper, then cut out, and layered on. If you can't see the sentiment well, it says, " I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar". LOL, this just makes me giggle. You can also click on the picture to see it bigger. I love how she is looking up and holding herself, like she really is contemplating what she did! I also used Miracle Tape from Viva Las Vegastamps to hold the card together! Wow, that stuff is amazingly strong! I can see myself using it for all sorts of different things. If you click on any of the highlighted words in this post, you will be taken to the Viva Las Vegastamps website, and to the stamps I used.

Thank you for stopping by today!
