Today we are revealing Renew. Poor Renew here has gone thru a series of names before me settling on one (more out of time constraints than anything else lol). She totally reminds Melissa of Pride & Prejudice and I can totally see the vibe! She looks like she’s simply climbed a grassy knoll and set herself down in the grass to soak up the peace and quiet. *inhale… exhale…* That feel is what really inspired the sentiments and accessories for this set. The flowers especially I wanted in a size to put in the grass or make herself a daisy chain for her hair. I’ve yet to do it but you know I’ll have to!
For the card design (papers are AC, Sass and October Afternoon) I actually lifted myself from this post and changed it up a bit. That card was one of my faves so why not lift it? 😉 Renew is colored with a whole tone of Copics and I did try to do a coloring video for this one as well but I got part of the way thru and the battery died on my camera *shakes fist*. That’s ok though, it was the last vid before getting my tripod so you wouldn’t have wanted to watch another shakey cam vid lol. I might try it again at another point though, with some different colors.
I made this card a couple of weeks ago so I’m not exactly sure on the colors I used or I would list them, I usually can eyeball it with great accuracy. I did add touches of Opaque White on this that I really like, namely on her eyes, hair and the scalloped trim of her dress. I still need a thinner brush but it turned out.
Not to toot the horn but remember if you order the Clear Stamps direct from us thru July 1st you can get yourself a raffle ticket for some CHA sets that we’ll be debuting at the show, they won’t be released until August, Sept and October but you can get them early. Go HERE for all the details. I frankly think the tickets turned out adorable if I do say so myself 😉
