Hi everyone! My name is Angie Ha, although some people have taken to calling me AHa which led to A*Ha Creations. I’m super excited to be guest designing for MarkerPop for the month of April! I’m from Lancaster, PA… Amish country. I’m married to a wonderful, enabling husband for almost 8 years now and it’s probably his fault that I got so into all of the crafty stuff (he said I needed a hobby!) which led to my favorite addition – COPICS! I just can’t seem to stop coloring! I picked one up about two years ago, and just can’t get enough.
When I saw the Springtime Garden stamp from My Favorite Things, I knew I had to color her up to usher in the spring weather – which can’t get here soon enough! I stamped her out a few times and got to coloring. I did up a few different versions, so I have TWO projects to share with you today.
The first project is a little tag:
I found the clear acrylic tag in my stash and splashed on some Copic Various Ink in BG49, B02, and V09. The butterflies were also found in my stash and I airbrushed them with the same colors.
For project number two, I stuck with a card:
When I colored her up, I knew I had to pair her with Lawn Fawn’s Bright Side Paper. And I couldn’t just color her skirt, I had to do a little layering 😉 I love how it adds a little more natural shadow with just a little foam adhesive!
sorry this one’s a little dark, but look at the dimension!
Instead of fussy cutting the image for the card, I decided to keep it a rectangle to be layered on the card so I knew I had to ground her somehow. Usually, I stick with Cs to ground, but she had to be standing in grass.
I hope you enjoyed my projects today, there’s plenty more on my blog, I’d love for you to stop by and have a look. I’ll be back in two weeks with another project to share.
Until then, I hope you have sometime to get crafty and I encourage you to pick up this stamp and usher in the spring with me!
