Lil Lovely Hearts...

Hello Everyone,

Antoinette Tristan  here today.  I am a new Scrapbook Stamp Society Design Team Member and I will be sharing and hopefully tickling your creativity to try something new or tweak what I have done and add your own flavor creating with My Besties images.  That is what is so fun about crafting from the heart as Artisans we all give our creations a touch of ourselves making it unique.

I invite you to go by the Scrapbook Stamp Society Store and check out all the fun Sherri Baldy Designs Crafting goods she has to play with. Also come join the fun Membership on Facebook-Scrapbook Stamp Society we love all the creative sharing of all things Sherri Baldy Designs.

I am coming to you from my little craft haven in Texas.   I always new I loved arts and crafts since little. I loved transforming my coloring book pages with color and painting ceramics was a long time love. I dabbled with paper mache' in art class and I was blessed to learn embroidery through my Grandmother. Now that I am older and had to take early retirement through physical disability I am glad to say I have found  my happy place and happy heart  in making cards, playing with mixed media, altering items and making my own flower embellishments. Crafting has become my outsource of all things good as my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ inspires and tickles my creativity.

My first project I am sharing with you is a fun card I made using the adorable My Besties digital image106 - Lil Lovely Hearts that you can find in Sherri Bald'y Etsy Shop.  Here she is before coloring. I love her adorable face and sweet facial expression so I had to buy her for two reasons I love her expression that draws you in and because she is perfect to print multiple times on a page to use as practice for trying different skin tones and hair colors with my Spectrum Noir Pens as I try to get better on what is called flicking/feathering her hair strands.
