There are times when stamp companies come out with a release that is perfect for the moment. And you have to know that these companies work months before a release to design and manufacture so it generally isn’t something they just put together last second. So I will say that I’m thrilled that my friend Erin from Erin Lee Creative has done it again.
She has a new release coming out on June 12th and this image is a part of a set called Here For You. The sentiment is from the same set. I stamped the hands three times using my Misti for spacing and then colored away. It took a few days of coloring and taking my time to work on skin tones. Which is a wonderful thing to do when one likes to Copic color. I also realized that I need a few more colors to get the colors of the human rainbow right.
I generally avoid discussions of any political nature here but this moment in time is bigger than just “politics”. It is a time of learning and listening. It is also a time to realize that we have to figure this out. Really. We need to understand at our core that humans of all colors, shapes, sizes, genders and any other defining characteristic have value and worth. We have the ability to fix these problems. Together.
I hope you will be inspired by this card and by Erin’s release. Keep your eyes out for more details. I’ll be sharing them here and on social media. Until tomorrow, I hope you are safe and healthy. Thanks for stopping in!
