LET'S DO LUNCH

Hey there stampers, we're on day three of the May Arts product swap.  This ribbon screamed summer fun to me so I combined it with the set called Life's a Picnic from Our Craft Lounge.  I used to be in love with this set when it first came out but last summer I made around 100 cards/invitations for a friend's wedding.  I was totally over the set by the time I was done!  I still think it's adorable...but only in small doses.  LOL!

A Nestie was used to cut three pieces of card stock for the frame.  The images were stamped with black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Black Sakura, white opaque, and clear Spica pens were used on the watermelon seeds and rind to make them pop.  The clear Spica pen was also used on the centers of the flowers and a clear Sakura pen was used on the ant's eyes.  One of the flowers was stamped a second time, cut out and popped up on foam.

You know what I love most about OCL stamps...the color panel that comes with every stamp set.  This set was illustrated by Marianne Walker, from Copic and I Like Markers blog; she's AMAZING!  She colored the panel and it's so cool to "try" to color like her.  My coloring has improved a lot with the help of these panels!  Stop by again tomorrow to see what other OCL/May Arts project I have to share...hmmm...I'm thinking beyond summer and ahead to the most wonderful time of the year.  I hope you join me!

Just a reminder...you can visit The Lounge and May Arts Ribbon Blog to see what the other designers made.  Leave some love for the designers for a chance at the awesome May Arts ribbon blog candy.  Here's how...every day, leave comments on:
