Welcome to day one of the latest Sweet November release and also my first official day as a designer for Sweet November. I was thrilled and honored to accept when the illustrator, Amy Young emailed asking if I would like to design for her. I love all of Amy's mythical creatures as you can probably tell if you've read my blog over the past year.
Over the next six days we will be previewing a series of new Zodiac Girls stamps. These will be available for sale in both rubber and digital form at All That Scraps on March 7. Today's projects feature Aries and Taurus. Be sure to also click on over to guest designers Marley and Lisa along with the talented Sweet November creator Amy who is offering a chance for some very generous blog candy.
As you will see today and in subsequent projects, I saw a use for these gorgeous girls beyond just the zodiac theme. I love images that are versatile. I selected to work with the "Taurus" image today. I stamped her onto Copic X-Press-It cardstock wiping away the Zodiac symbol necklace before stamping. After coloring with Copic markers I cut around the box portion of the image with a trimmer and then the areas that spilled out of the frame with scissors. I paired her up with a fun and twisty sentiment. The paper all came from my box of scraps.
