Even though I just started this blog, I didn't want it to be "naked" so I thought I would add some pictures of cards I've been doing lately.
The latest coloring medium I've been working with is copics. I've never been very good with markers, but when the copics came out I was seeing so many beautiful things made with them that I had to try. After some practice, I think I'm getting a little better. Marianne, who works with copics all the time has a wonderful new blog too where you can learn all kinds of wonderful tips! Go take a look if you have any interest in copics.
Now, on to one of my latest cards!
I call this one "Super Sweetie". It was made as an anniversary card for my husband on our 32nd anniversary. The yellow around the image is chalk. I think I'm going to ask for one of the air guns for the copics for my birthday next month so I can do without the chalks.
The image is from Diamonds rubber stamps. They no longer manufacture rubber stamps, but the owner does have all of the graphics on CD's and sells them on ebay, which is where I got this image. The background stars are from Papertrey Ink's Text Boxed set.
This one I call "Be-otch" This is an image my youngest daughter drew and I thought it would make a perfect card. I'm actually looking for someone interested in buying some of her images to make into stamps, so if any one out there wants some new talent give me a holler!
The inside of this reads "like it's a bad thing". LOL!
I made another one like this that says "I used to think I wanted a career, but it turns out I only wanted paychecks."
There are a lot of different phrases that could go with this!
Well, I think this is a good start for a first post! Thanks for visiting, and I hope you come back!
