I have exciting news to share!
I just posted this on the DRS Designs blog!
Wow! What an exciting day this is! First thing I did today was shopping at the stamp & paper craft show in Novi, Michigan. And I met Sue, owner of DRS Designs!!! Now I'm home and my internet is working again. Yeah! So now I get to announce that I'm the newest member of the design team! I'm so excited!!! I hope to inspire you during this journey. Although I've hostessed challenges for a few years on Splitcoast Stampers, this is my first DT experience.
Every year, I make a new name tag for attending rubber stamp shows. This is the name tag I wore, today. I always meet at least one person. Today, I met MichiganFan! I know I ran into others, but I didn't catch their names. If you're reading this, I had a blast! And I'm a little more poor. LOL! (This name tag will become a bookmark when I'm done using it.)
This stamp is available on the DRS website. I used Copic markers Y38 , E35, and E31 to color the image. I also used SU's basic black marker because I have trouble with using black in small areas and basic black has a very small point. I used SU's creamy caramel & close to cocoa markers for the dirt ground and then sponged it with creamy caramel. Then I used the basic black marker again for the doodling. Before wearing it, I put an eyelet with some ribbon at the top to have something to hook the pin to it and my shirt.
At the Novi show, I added to my Copic marker collection and learned a couple of new techniques that I'd like to show you when I get the chance to take photos of the step-by-step instructions.
Hope you're having a great weekend. And happy stamping!
Jen, Jenny, Jennifer... You can't go wrong because I answer to all of them. There's a history about that, but that's a long story for another day. *wink*
