This card measures 5 x 6 1/2 inches, this is a large stamp that needed a large die to frame it.
Quite the story behind this card, I wanted to give a go at no line look for this image, you can see what I mean by that in in this post by Leslie . I was blessed with this card at Christmas and look at it every day, I thought I would try it again, I have tried it before but just can't achieve that look. Well I colored the whole image and I hated it so that went into the trash and I started again with black ink this time, really liked the way it turned out but at the last minute when I sat back and looked at it, I decided to add a butterfly from the set and when I went to open my Spectrum noir marker, I pulled the top right off and out rolled the ink holder from inside the marker all over my image, well across the face and up to the right and corner of the image, I think I gasped so hard that I about took my breath away. All that after coloring this image through twice. What was on the face was fairly light so I went to thinking how can I fix what is above her head and went about stamping, coloring and cutting out a lot of flowers to cover up the ink spill, as I was doing that I thought of my clear blending pen and how I have seen people use it to lift color before, so I took my blender pen and went gently over the marks on her face, would let it dry while I was doing the other flowers and would come back and remove a little more, I did this 4 times and as you can see it worked fairly well you can hardly see any marker on the bunnies face, wow what a relief. I wondered if I could do that to the bigger marks above but decided since I had already did all those flowers I might as well use them.
I added a few more flowers around the image to balance that right top corner off a bit, and yes the tag is strategically added there to cover ink marks.
This stamp set came from Quick cards magazine, also purchased at Barnes and Nobles. Leslie mentioned in a comment that she has seen these magazines at JoAnns also so if you don't have a Barnes and Nobles in your area but you do have a JoAnns you can check that out. The paper also came in a pack from a magazine but I forgot to write down which one.

Looks like we got a good two inches maybe a little more of snow last night. Really weird to see when I got up this morning that there was fog hovering about 10 feet in the air over the snow, I tried to get a picture when the sun came up a little more on my husbands camera, so I don't know if you will be able to see it or not, I don't really know how to use his fancy camera, I still use my point and shoot :)
Hope your staying warm and are having a good week so far,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leaving a comment,
