Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! :):) I'm so sorry I've been absent this week. The Internet died on our home computer so I was unable to upload photos all week. Hubby was finally able to fix it and hopefully I'll be back to my regular posting routine :)
I have two projects for you today. The first uses another adorable image from the brand new Anki's Sweethearts Line available exclusively at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This particular image is called Cathrine with Butterfly and I think she's just gorgeous. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped her onto PTI cardstock, and colored her with my copics. By the way, if you are interested in copics, or want to know some great colors that go together, check out Susana's store HERE. Suzanne Dean, Susana's DT leader, has put together some awesome copic bundles of colors that are perfect for coloring skin tones, hair, landscapes, etc. Suzanne has also put together some amazing and easy to follow tutorials on the store blog, Follow Your Heart (just look on the sidebar under "Copic Bundle Tutorials").
Getting back to my card, I added some stickles to the image, then cut her out with my circle nesties. All cardstock is by SU (Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery). My design paper is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery stack (baby girl). I used my fiskar's threading water punch on the smaller piece of design paper, then added a pink ribbon and adhered my image with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Verve and I cut it out using my circle and scalloped circle nesties. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and pink rhinestones. What do you think?
For my second card today, I decided to ink up this adorable image from Pink Cat Studio. I colored her with copics and added lots of Stickles and glitter from my Sakura glitter pen. All cardstock is SU (Bordering Blue and Always Artichoke) and my design paper is from DCWV's new Garden Party stack (love this paper, it's gorgeous!!). I added a blue ribbon and bow to the card, then mounted my image onto my SU cardstock with dimensionals. I used my SU ticket corner punch on the corners and added green rhinestones. The sentiment, which I adhered with dimensioanls, is from the same Pink Cat Studio set. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and blue rhinestones. What do you think?
Whew, sorry for the long post today :) After not blogging all week, I guess I just had a lot to say :) I'd love to hear what you think of my projects. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project.
