Legendary Father's Day/Let's Stay Home Blog Hop

Welcome to the Legendary Father's Day/Let's Stay Home Blog Hop! 

This hop I am following {Wendy Kessler's blog}   We have 11 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our Legendary Father's Day/Let's Stay Home Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

I will be showing you artwork using the On Repeat Stamp Set.  It is one of the three different Let's Stay Home Stamp Sets.  I fell in love with the dog and the cat with the masks.

This past week another Close to My Heart consultant posted a card on our Consultant's Facebook group using the Center Stage technique and I couldn't wait to try it.  Here's a link to the instructions for this technique.

This technique is SO easy once you know the secret of creating the spotlight.

Here is my card:

I stamped all of the images and the sentiment with our Intense Black Ink Pad onto our White Daisy Cardstock.  Then I colored in the images in with our Spectrum Noir Tri Blend Markers. I used these markers: Dark Red Blend; Brown Grey Blend; Tan Blend; Citrus Green Blend; Orange Blend; Ice Blue Blend; and Earth Brown Blend.  

The spotlight was created with sponging Pewter Ink on the sides and bottom of the panel.  And then all I did was add some Christmas Red Stickles on the viruses.  

The panel is matted with Nectarine Cardstock and again matted with Black Cardstock.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Melissa Robinson} and see what she has made with the products from the newest catalog.
