Another card - Matryoshka

Everything is Close To My Heart (except the stamp set and the border punch). When I saw this stamp set, I just had to have it. My mother-in-law's birthday was coming up and she's of Ukrainian descent so it just had to be bought! LOL

I stamped the image and colored it in with our markers (cranberry and garden green)and used our blending pen to blend the colors out a bit and soften them. Used the blending pen, too, to add the shading on the dolls and the shadows under the dolls. The ribbon is our grosgrain cranberry ribbon as well.

Can't remember which paper pack I used, though! LOL Gotta start writing this stuff down - my memory is fabulous but VERY short!

Lifted the card design from Andrea Walford. (That girl's got some talent!) Tweaked it to make it my own, though.

MIL loved the card, BTW. :-)


  1. Cute card, and so appropriate! I'm horrible for details on what I've used too. The shading really looks good!

  2. OMG, it's beautiful!! Wonderful coloring & blending, Lisa... and love how you used the circle element too... great job!! :o)
