Day 3: Sneak Peek - Come Home Soon


Here is another sneak peek of a 2RedBananas.com original stamp set being released on February 2nd. It's called "Come Home Soon" and I used 3 stamps from the set. I made the card base out of brown CS with a block of patterned paper on top (I'm sorry I don't know who it's by, I tend to use scraps for my cards and don't always have line names or manufacturer info). I stamped the images with brown Staz-on ink. I colored the main image with watercolor pencils and a Tombow blender pen and adhered it to the card. I circle punched around the outside and inside of the round image then passed the strip stamped with "HERO" through it and adhered them to card.
This is a really great, patriotic set designed by Jami Bova, who is also a very talented member of the 2RedBananas DT.

  2. This is so stunning!! I love the paper in the background and how you laid out the card! Fantastic job. I have to say my favorite adhesive is Tombow mono adhesive. I buy it in bulk because I can't get enough of it!
