Soaking Up the Joy

Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.

Sometimes its fun to just get carried away . . . which I kind of did with this card. It looks like I tried to pack as much "joy" as I could into a 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" space. It might give you a little visual overload.

If you've followed my blog before (God love ya), you know I'm crazy about Mo Manning's digital stamps. This stamp, Soaking Up the Joy, was one of the very first images Mo created when she started offering her illustrations as digital stamps. It's such an amazing image to color – it just comes to life with each dab of ink. So, how cool is it that you can get this image now as a clear stamp. As much as I love her digital stamps, it's even more fun to ink up her images.

I cut out the face and upper body of the baby doll and attached her with 3D Foam Mounting Adhesive. Then I used a small paint brush to add Crystal Lacquer to the doll to help pop her off the page a little more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The layout comes from Jen del Muro's sketch this week at i{heart}2stamp.

Maya Angelou once said: When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity, happiness… all the good things.”  Here's wishing all you dear folks all the joy you can stand.

  2. I am so glad I found you :). I just love your blog.. I love this card, yes it is filled with joy..this was one of my first digi stamps "I am a rubba gal" but Mo has some of the most amazing images. I am glad that they are turning into stamps. also I love the fact you dont just show the copics but the order of what you are coloring–skin tones ect. I am new at copics so you know I need all the help I can get. "I am such a needy child" ;).
