I love oatmeal, I'd eat it everyday if I weren't too lazy to fix it (Honeynut Cheerios are soooooooooo much easier). Today I had some spare time so I nuked a bowl, added a tablespoon of butter, a tablespoon of sugar, some half and half and a few raisins. A healthy breakfast for a change, right?
I pulled out my ream of kraft cardstock and after being inspired by a recent GinaK video, colored some stamps. I discovered my Copics are very different on kraft as opposed to my usual white or cream Beckett Radiance cardstock. After playing with a scrap for a while, I finally printed a new copic color chart from Suzanne Dean's classroom site on kraft cardstock and spent part of the evening last night coloring it in. Amazing how a vibrant color can become antiqued just by using this color base.
Lots of firsts here. I don't normally use colors for the sentiments. As with the Copics, I wasn't sure how they would look on Kraft so I made charts for my inks: Memento, Distress and PTI, although I don't have many PTI pads. When I pulled this Jellybean Poptone cardstock out, I matched it to my Memento Bamboo Leaves and Copic G14. The image and sentiment are from Flourishes and I've added a tiny Recollections pearl to the sentiment.
