Release day @ Sister Stamps

Hello everyone!
It's release day over at Sister Stamps.  Yay!!  For a list of all the vendors please visit the Sister Stamps blog.

I made this fun shaped card using the Firecracker kids.  This time I tried a different color scheme, but still kept the gold in there.  The fun shaped card is Spellbinders labels 21.  I used gold Stardream paper for the base, embossed it with an Asian style Cuttlebug folder.  Layered royal blue cardstock underneath the main white image.  For the center I distressed the inside of the white cardstock while it was still inside the Spellbinder with Faded Jeans Distress ink and then colored up the image.  Again I gave them that glow from the fireworks.  Not a glitter in site, thought it would be nice to keep it that simple.

Firecracker Kids - Sister Stamps Release #4

After I colored up the little boy I thought he looked like a younger version of Roy Mustang from Full Metal Alchemist (Anime).  Here's a picture of him:

Alrighty, I wanted to Thank you all for the warm wishes and the lovely comments.  I hope you all enjoyed my previews because I had a lot of fun creating them.  Another big Thank you to Jenny for asking me to help with the release and for both Debi & Jenny's inspiration.  Don't forget to stop by their blogs for chances to win the release.

Now, what are you waiting for?  *:)

Oh my gosh, those sister stamp kids are adorable. I love the Lion Dancer, I think it might be my fave.

I ADORE what you did in the post below, the background is stunning. You could sell it as a digi. I love using backgrounds, it some how makes it seem more of an art piece and not just a crafting ;D

And the "glow" phenomenal! I have a card coming up this week with a similar take on having the light source in the middle. I wish I had of thought of using a yellow cast on the images. I have the light source worked out, but the only left the areas closest to the source least saturated. Your take is wonderful.
