April TSG Blog Hop Challenge Day 1



Hi! Welcome to a week of previews of There She Goes new releases! You are in the right spot if you've arrived here from Tammy's blog!
Once again Chris Dark has amazed us with a whimsical and spring-inspired stamp set. Who wouldn’t want to be outside enjoying the scenes of spring as everything comes to life? This set is a celebration of exactly that!
Garden of Life is a 3X4 stamp set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $7.



Instead of colouring the image in the traditional sense, I airbrushed with Copic markers to get a soft, overall suggestion of colour. I went tres shabby with this card. My husband said, "It looks like you ripped the paper in some sections." lol... Oh really? It does? 




Have a bad day at the office? Or maybe you have a bad office every day? If either of these pertains to your situation, you will definitely enjoy this tongue-in-cheek set illustrated by Jessica…and anyone would be happy to receive a creation using this hilarious set!
Confidential is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 12 stamps and will sell for $15.

I just bought a copy of Copic's Shadows &Shading book and tried a technique or two out. I struggle with realistic shadows and I hope to start mastering these skills, but this is my first crack at it:


Isn't she cute? So... I realize that a cast shadow (underneath the desk) would not be aqua, but I tried to employ the principles by making the skirt/chair darker etc.. Anyway.. Enough about colouring, back to the stamp set.. The sentiment I chose is hilarious and I decided to put it on the inside:


I can't wait to give this to one of the secretaries at school. They love my cards and will get a kick out of the sentiments in this set. 

You have a chance to win the sets being previewed simply by visiting all of the Trendsetters' blogs and leave a comment on their challenge post. You are at the end of the hop, so head back to the TSG blog and leave your name if you've completed the hop!
