LPS Sneak Peak Day 2


Got Mud? This card certainly does! The minute I saw last month's release ATV stamp from Little Paper Shop, I thought of using it with Liquid Appliqué. For those of you who don't know Liquid Appliqué is a gel like substance that when heated puffs up. It is so perfect for dirt and male cards. Plus, one of LPS's new releases 'Boys will be Boys' set to be released May 27th, contains the sentiment 'Got Mud'. How perfect is that?!? For this card I partially heated the Liquid Applique then 'mushed' (I'm sure thats the technical word) the LA around. I also used my fingers to spread it over the image to create motion. I colored the ATV with BG10, BG13, G21, G24, E09, and E31. The 'birthday wishes' stamp is from Hero Arts.

Also, I have a new poll which asks whether or not you love having ALL the ingredients to my cards. It takes a long time and while I don't mind doing it, I'm not sure if you all want to spend the time reading every piece of ribbon's origins. Regardless of the poll, I will always tell you the stamps and copic colors. There are a couple of choices, SO please let me know!!!

Thanks,
Elyssa

I have a question for you. This is the first time that I have seen Copic markers. I really like what you can do with them. If I were to buy a set, what set is the most versitlie?

Love the tutorials, you do great work.
