Dream Big

I've got a special treat for you today! A sneak peek at the NEW Crafter's Companion Sheena  A Taste of India stamp sets. These beautiful images are so detailed and fun to design with! Wait till you see the full sets! THUD!



I've used several of the new stamp sets on my card design along with Spectrum Noir Markers and the Spectum Noir blendable colored pencils for coloring and shading. The combination of these 2 coloring mediums creates spectacular results!

The background stamp - which is called Indian Arches - is shaded only with the pencils. All the rest of the coloring was done with markers and pencils combined.


In the closeup pics you can see how I painted  Sheer Shimmer Spritz - Gold on several areas. The gold shimmer is stunning in real life!


I also used an 18K Gold Leafing Pen around the edges of several layers and on the strips across the bottom of the card. Most everything I did was stamped and trimmed out by hand. It took me a couple days to design and complete this card...but I am thrilled with the results. It really turned out more beautiful than I imagined!


I'm sure you will just love these new A Taste of India stamp sets. Stay tuned to Crafter's Companion on Facebook for the announcement when they will be available to purchase.


Stay tuned! We're havin' a blog hop for the release of Sheena ATaste of India products. Just WAIT till you see all the goodies!

Fabulous card! I love that background, and it looks great colored with the pencils. The elephant is my second favorite in the series, and you have them both. TFS.
