Comments close on Thursday February at 9:00am ESTGood luck!

Now on to the show…

Typically I create A2 sized cards (4 1/4” x 5 1/2”) but this one is 6” tall to make it a little longer and leaner.  I had fun with the SOA "Harleen" stencil and my Copic Airbrush system creating the bright gradient of colour across it!  Plus, I used my MISTI tool to create a graphic paper with the cute little balloon stamp too!
This collection is fantastic and WELL worth the investment!
Now check out our next Stamp of Approval designer blog… and see what Laurel has in store for you!
