Miss You

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! :)  I'm so excited that the weekend is almost here :)  I have a super fun card to share with you today so I'll keep my chit chat short and get right to it.


I just love this image from Saturated Canary.  She's called "Hairy Situation" and you can find her HERE.  She was so much fun to color and I had a blast working on all that hair :)  I printed her onto my Copic Xpress cardstock and of course colored her with copics.  Here's a list of the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
Pants: E42, E43, E44, E47, E49
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender
 
My DP is from some old SU paper sets I had in my stash.  I added some pearls, a bow, and a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches.  The swirl was made from a Memory Box die.  The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set.  Here's some more pics:
 




I'm also entering this card in the current challenge over at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog.  The challenge was to use summer  fruity colors.  I LOVE watermelon, it's my favorite summer fruit by far so I used lots of pinks in this card for the challenge :)  What do you think?  Well that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend :)

Dancing Queen

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :)  Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I have a card to share today for the current challenge over at Color Me Creative.  Our challenge this time around was to use summery colors.  This was not hard for me, I'm so ready for summer, I just love the sun on my face and the bright colors :)


Our fabulous sponsor this week is Milk 'N Coffee Digi Stamps.  I just LOVE her images, you must check her out.  I used the adorable image called Madeline Saturday Night Fever.  She was so much fun to color up :)  I of course colored her with my copic markers.  Here are the colors I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Pinks: RV000, R81, R83, R85
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

My DP is from Echo Park.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design (the stamp set is retired).  I added a bow and a flower embellie (from Michael's), pearls, and the swirls were made from a Memory Box die.  Here are a few more photos:



What do you think?  Well, that's it from me today.  Please make sure to join us over at Color Me Creative.  If you play along in the challenge, you could win a $15 gift certificate to Milk N Coffee Digi Stamps (and believe me, these images are SO cute!).  Also, while you are over at Color Me Creative, make sure to check out Suzanne's copic classes.  She is having a great summer sale right now so make sure to check it out. 


Have a wonderful day everyone and I'll see you back here soon with another project :)

Groovy, Baby

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :)  Whew, where have I been? :)  So sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I've been trying to keep up with work and a nine month old and spring cleaning . . . it's just been crazy around here :)  But I have lots of images colored and hopefully will have some time to make some cards in the next few weeks. 

I also have some super exciting news!  I was asked by the amazing Suzanne Dean (Scrap Bitz) to join her Color Me Creative Design Team!!!!!!  For those who don't know, Suzanne is a copic marker coloring master! She teaches online classes at Color Me Creative.  I have been coloring with my copic markers for years, but it wasn't until I took some lessons from Suzanne and watched her online classes that I really started to "get it."  I am now so happy with my coloring and I owe that all to Suzanne!  Thank you so much Suzanne for asking me to be part of your DT, it is truly an honor!

Twice a month, Suzanne has a challenge over at Color Me Creative.  The DT creates samples with the challenge theme for inspiration and those who participate are eligible for a prize.  The challenge this week is brunette hair.  You can see all the details as well as the DT samples HERE.  Our amazing sponsor this week is Digi My World, I just love their sweet images :) 

For my sample today, I used the adorable Shagadelic Image from Digi My World.  Here's my card:


Isn't she fun?  I had SO much fun coloring her and she was perfect for the challenge, as her hair is fantastic :)  I printed the digi onto my Copic Xpress cardstock and then colored her with copics.  Here's a list of the copics I used:

Hair: E21, E25, E29
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Pinks: R81, R83, R85, R89
Blues: B91, B93, B97, B99
Vest fringe: E42, E44, E47
Shadow around image: W2, W4, Blender

I created my card base out of SU cardstock.  My DP is from Echo Park.  I added a ribbon (from Michael's).  The gem in the center of the ribbon is by Recollections (Michael's brand).  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The swirl in the corner is a Memory Box Die.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design Stamps (I believe this set is retired unfortunately, I love it!).  Finally, I added some blue pearls for a finishing touch.  Here are some other views of my card:




 
And some close ups:
