FS115: Jaymerz

This week's featured stamper is Jamie (aka Jaymerz). I was going through her awesome gallery and found {this card}. SO CUTE! I decided that I had to give it a whirl, so I pulled out some designer paper scraps and my Our Craft Lounge set Snail Mail. I know - third week in a row that I have used an OCL stamp...I am drawn to their stamps lately (cause they are on the TOP of the messy pile on my desk (which Debbie can attest to because she stamped tonight too so now it is EXTRA MESSY!).

The changes I made to the card were:
  • colors (I used different designer papers)
  • added a prima and button (remember last week's card where I lost the prima and button - here it is)
  • changed the color of the ribbon
  • changed the stamp set

I kept the layout because it was so cute! I started with a white base, the black layer atop that, then the designer paper. The next layer is Stampin' Up! retired designer paper. I used a strip of basic grey which I LOVE!!! I think it looks spectacular together, what do you think? Some paper piercing on the top and under the sentiment. The main image is stamped on white with black soot, then colored with copics. Main image is on dimensionals. I used my sakura stardust on the snail (to make a trail and color him in).

So that's my card, what do you think?

stamps: Snail Mail {Our Craft Lounge}
paper: white, black, dp (SU!, Basic Grey)
ink: black soot, copics
misc: ribbon (mayarts), button (papertrey), dimensionals, sakura stardust
