It's Fun to Say I Knew them When

Jenny Gropp was on the very first design team I put together about 4 years ago. She is such an AMAZING paper artists. Her work is always dimensional, beautifully colored, thick with layers, well designed, and simply stunning. I always looked forward to packages in the mail from her. Felt like Christmas. She has a great blog that I have started to follow One Krafty Cat and then another blog she is very active on OCC. Both sites are packed full of great samples, challenges and inspiration. Jenny recently agreed to be a Guest Artist for us coming up in October. We will have more of a write up on her then. But for now, she graciously send us this beautiful sample for us to share on our blog.
Celebrating in Colors:
Jenny used Copics to color her Harvest Pickings Scene . She then airbrushed around the edges with yellow and taupe, adding some shading underneath the image to help ground it. She inked up the Celebrate Tag with Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango, then trimmed it out and roughed up the edges a bit before sliding it in between her layers. The color card stocks she used were: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Soft Suede DP - and the reverse side of that was the tiny green polka dots. She embellished liberally with Buttons, Silk Ribbon, Jewels, Border Punches and finished it off with what else, but a few doodle stitch marks. Finished card size is 6" Square.
