Rose garden By Thomas Kincade

I am very proud of this card, I so often rush at my work and get *so-so* results. This one I took my time with and I feel rewarded by not rushing. I colored the beautiful image with prismacolor pencils and baby oil, and went for the boldest brightest colors I could get. I refered to the label on the stamp to help me with my colors, and realized that being timid was not the way to go. I really pressed on those pencils! I then put 4 layers of UTEE on it, then popped it in the freezer and cracked it. I must say the thick glaze really deepens the colors and I was thrilled with the results. I am so grateful to SCS and all my stamping friends who have taught me so very much about this craft! Especially Dawn L who always encourages me and reassured me my card would not smell like a baby's bottom or be greasy by using the baby oil. Thanks for looking!

About Me

My photo
Hi everyone! My Name is Nancy Levine, known as NANCYRUTH on SCS. I have began stamping 20 years ago, though I put everything in the attic for about 10 of those during the hectic years of my single motherhood. I went to a stamping up party about 5 years ago and the stamping flame was rekindled and i have stamped almost every day since then. I work full time in a lighting store and enjoy my career in sales which allows me to fund my crafting habits. I am also a beader and spend my free time stamping, swimming and making jewelry! I look forward to charting my creative journey through my new blog. Fast forward.... After 13 months of unemployment due to the economic downturn I completed my Therapeutic Recreation certification and now work in a skilled nursing facility creating and implementing recreational programs for the residents. I also had the priviledge of working at Beadz Boutique in Darien Ct. where I fine tuned many of my beading skills!
