Scene stamping with justjohanna *and published!*



This afternoon I decided to do some scene stamping with my justjohanna stamps.




This is what I came up with.


I painted the blue and green background with watercolor paints. I also used my stamp-a-majig a lot on this. Then I colored the scene with both watercolor pencils and copic markers. I also added glitter on the clouds, inspired by the clouds Lim does with glitter. (side note, Lim is new to me and AWESOME. You should check out her blog here. ) I left Priscilla white again, I'm still really liking her white.




This next pic is of some of the stuff I used to make the card. Note the yellow post it on the tree stamp. I use this stamp a BUNCH and often want to mask it, so I just keep this mask right on the wood of the stamp. Then I don't have to cut it out each time. I also have this on a bunch of other stamps. Also see on the grid paper how I stamped the animal grouping out? I do that when I'm making a brand new to me scene to make sure it really works. The owl on the tail was an afterthought but I tried it out on the gird paper and it made me happy so it got to go on the card. You can also see my stamp-a-majig here, I use it a LOT. Like a super freak out ton, lot. I thought they were totally silly before I got mine but now I use it every time I stamp almost. In other news I have 9 cards published in the current Just Cards! magazine. Here is the cover. AND look in the top left corner. That cute bird card with the two birds and the heart? That's by my friend Awana and it uses justjohanna stamps too!


Here is a close up of Awana's card. Too cute!

It's a cute magazine, I always like Just Cards because, well, it's just cards. It is card/directions, card/directions. Over and over. Tons of them. *says right on the cover, "over 300"*

Ok, I rekon that's all I have for today. :)

I am blown away with this young ladies abilities to make cards. I have never seen such awesome work. I discovered Erin's website by accident while surfing for rubber stamps. I just purchased the advanced purchase of her 4 Just Cards Magazine for next year but have a question for anyone who might know? I want to go back and purchase a single copy of Just Cards that has the Eat Cake Graphics cards in it. Does anyone know which issue that is? Thank you so much for your help and I look forward to many more cards by Erin.
