A Bushel & a Peck - Blog Hop

I'm totally excited about this Stamp of the Month and can't wait to see what everyone creates to highlight it. It's called "A Bush & a Peck", with 15 images, and is available this month for $5, with an order of $50 or more! (It is valued at $17.95.)
If you are coming from Michelle's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants here.
While I was excited to create with this stamp set, I wanted to use all of the images! LOL Thankfully, I only chose a few and came up with this card that makes me happy. I hope it does the same for you!

I love this bokeh-like background that is part of the Central Park paper packet. I'll be honest, I wasn't too keen on it initially, but I am loving the patterns that are part of this new line as well as the coordinating items - stamps, embellishments, etc. Pacifica and Poppy cardstock were added, as well as some White Twine, and a small piece of Bashful Glitter Paper.
Besides that, I used a variety of Shin Han Markers to color in the images. But...you want to know my magic trick to the coloring and making it seem like I "shade" well? LOL It's the Colorless Blender! As best as I can describe, it "removes/blends" ink from the areas to which it is applied. You can see it best reflected on the basket, for example, as well as on her skirt and boots. Cool, huh?!

I appreciate you stopping by and hope you have enjoyed this artwork. You're bound to find some other fun creations as you keep moving through the hop. Head on over to Brenda's Blog to see what she has in store for you and make it a great June!
