Chew chew nerds

My project today is a Valentine Nerd Holder.  I love making them so much that I make it every year (just changing up the colors and stamp set).

Looking back….I made a video on this project on Jan. 2th, 2008 (over two years ago).  It was my third video and not one of my best but I have fond memories of filming it.  This was the one & only video filmed in my kitchen…back then I was still searching for the best location or I should say the best lighting!!  If you’d like to check out my really old video, click here.

I used the Whoo’s your Valentine stamp set and I stamped it with Black Stazon on Shimmery White card stock and then colored the image in with an Aqua Painter & Stampin’ Write Markers.  If you’re in a hurry you can take your marker…scribble on your stamp case…then use your aqua painter to pick up the color.  Since it’s water-based ink you can just wipe it off with a paper towel.  The colors I used were Basic Gray, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo & Tempting Turquoise.

I have to say ….images like this one are my all time favorite!! I love coloring!! To get the shaded look all I did was take my Going Gray marker & go around the edges.
