I'm Your Biggest Fan - SOTW #48 (biggest fan)

Hello!  Today I have the cutest stamp to share from Unity's Stamp Of The Week...

I love a good pun, and I love how retro the fan is.  It reminds me of one I had as a kid.  :-)  You can find all the information about signing up for the Stamp Of The Week here.  And check out the fabulous DT samples on the Unity blog here.  Here's what I came up with...

I've coloured this on Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock in Peanut Cluster.  For the fan, I used Prismacolor Pencils in Aquamarine and Light Aqua, plus black and white for shadows and highlights. I also used Metallic Silver for the cage/frame and the nuts and bolts.  And the distressing around the cardstock was done with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks.

That gorgeous netting is the 1.5" Dark Teal Net Ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.  Over the top of the netting I've used my favourite twine, the 0.8mm Black Hemp Twine from AnnaBelle Stamps.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hi Danielle! Awesome awesome coloring!!! I found out about you from a link Dini posted on Splitcoast to one of your You Tube videos. It was the one of the girl in the grass on kraft. Really great! I've colored on Kraft a few times but you really gave me a bunch of new education! I just finished a Mo Manning image and hope to have it up on my blog in a few days. Maybe I'll come by and link it on your blog - so if you're free you can give me some feedback :)

    Thanks again for the video and I'm no following your blog too :) Have a great night!

  9. Wow Danielle...your colouring on the fan is superb! Great colours.
