Hello and good morning!
Can you believe it is almost December? Where did this year go?! Well, at least with the new month closing in that means brand new Sweet November Stamps previews are about to begin!
It also means that I've got December's SN guest gal to introduce you to before we dive into all those wonderful candies! ;)
So without further ado please let me introduce you to the fabulously talented Angela Sowell! I have been a long time fan of Angela and her AMAZING way with Copic markers. She achieves such depth and richness of color with her images that it always leaves me in awe! And her talents don't end there... I also love how Angela isn't afraid to play with texture and dimension in her card embellishing to create a lovely vintagey feel. So pretty!
Ok, time for my favorite part of the spotlight... the crazy, fun SN questionnaire!
1) What color do feel represents your personality and why?
Not for sure which color represents my personality, but my favorite color is green and it always puts me in a good mood.
2) Is your style of dress/ home decor similar to your style of card making?
Yes, when it come to colors as my favorite colors to create with are warm colors. I think I have the color Chocolate brown in every room in my house, mixed with other colors too. I think my card making differs from each card as I don’t really have a style when it comes to creating.
3) What one thing always puts you in a good mood?
When stamps come in the mail!! Who doesn't love getting new stamps to play with.
4) If you could visit any time in history when would it be?
1920’s or 1930’s as I love the style then.
5) If you were a mythical creature ie. fairy, elf, mermaid, troll etc., what kind would you be and why?
I would pick a fairy. I’d love to be able to fly up in the trees and look down on the beauty that surrounds me, but my kids would say a troll. As I can be a tough mom at times… not really.. they just think so when they don’t get their way.
6) If you are a fellow Gleek, which character from McKinley High do you most identify with?
I would have to say Rachel as I have a big heart and at times people can take advantage of that.
Now it's time to share Angela's magical Twisted Sisters card and how it inspired mine for today.
The biggest design idea that I took was her use of not one, not two but three images on a single card! The interaction between the different characters was just too fun not to try out. :)
The general layout design is also lifted straight from her card, as well as the long vertical block housing the sentiment.
Angela will be joining Traci, Rachel and myself in the December Sweet November sneak peeks starting tomorrow! This new release is sure to have you longing for a white Christmas so be sure to come back and take a peek! ;)
