There She Goes May Blog Hop Challenge - Day 2



Hi! If you're here from Theresa's blog you're in the right place.. Welcome! This new set from Torico showcases her flawless and realistic illustration of these hearty flowers and is paired with several sentiments that coordinate with the image. This set is a must-have for any flower lover! Forever is a 3x4 stamp set that includes a total of 5 of stamps and will sell for $7.


This card is a product of wanting to use a bunch of patterned papers... Done. lol... I tore the crap out of the two papers and mounted the one on top slightly off-set so you can see some of the paper underneath peeking through. Some hearty hemp twine finished off the rugged look.

 I used Copics to colour the image and chose to keep the carnations "white" so I used E40, E41 and E43 markers to add shading. The E40 markers are my go-to colours when I'm colouring white, especially off-white because I don't want a GREY look, which the grey markers always give (obviously)... 



Would you like a chance to win the Forever stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Forever  Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the
Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Forever stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (May 28) during the Release Party Chat.

Your last stop on the Hop is the stamp set illustrator, Torico!!
