Tender Thoughts

I've been playing with some of the Tender Thoughts images this month and wanted to share them with you today. These are from Eureka Stamps and you can purchase the images in digital or rubber.

The image is colored with Copic markers: bee – Y15,17,19, B0000, flowers – R20,20,22,24,27,29, stamen – YG61,63,67, Y35,38, leaves - YG61,63,67

The reddish pink panel is Bazzill punched with EK Success Scallops and Dots border punch and the half pearls are attached with Aleene’s Paper Glaze.

The lace on the bottom is scrap lightweight paper punched with Martha Stewarts Doily Lace border punch and they are sculpted/beveled with a large metal ball stylus and folded paper towel for cushion and I did this just on the edge. After attaching it to the card I used a gold sticker tape to dress up the edge. Sorry I don’t know the company name for the sticker.

I stamped a second butterfly, cut out, embossed/sculpted on the back side by outlining the area on the front with a small metal ball stylus, turn it over and emboss with varies sizes of stylus according to the area size; a paper towel is used for cushion. The image is attached with Aleene’s tacky glue.

EK Success Scroll and Dots punch was used for the border.

The yellow border and punched border are strips of cardstock glued at the same level as the image panel to save on cardstock and card bulk.
