It's a Bestie Kind of Winter

Happy Happy Wednesday (Thursday) My Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing a Design Team project I created using this adorable image from Artist Sherri Baldy.  I made a gift bag out of cardstock and then used the finished image on the front of the bag.  I had no idea what I was doing to make a bag but it was actually quite easy.  

I am afraid the bow looks scrunched and it's because I had to scan it due to it pouring rain outside.  The bag measures 6" x 9".  

Here'e the link to this image in Sherri's Shop:

This little cutie was a joy to color.  I just love her outfit.  I used two dies to create the background behind this image.  I did fussy cut her out so she would fit on the base of the smaller scalloped circle.

I used the following Copic Colors:

E000, 00, 11, 13
B00, 02
C0, 01
G40, 41, 43, 46
R20, 89

Thanks so much for stopping by and your comments always make me smile.
Have a great week - and the weekend is almost here.

The Beautiful Mermaid

Happy Happy Wednesday Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing my Design Team Project with The Classic Design Team Open Challenge using this absolutely fabulous image by Artist Julia Spiri.  I love mermaids and this one is fantastic.

I used Copics to color her as well as to create the background.  And then I used  die to create the card (they are all one piece) as welll as the black background.  I was really inspired to use the colors I did because it seems like such a surreal moment in time.  

I used the following Copic colors:

B00, 02, 04
E00, 000
V01, 05,06, 09, 17, 28
RV02, 04, 17
Y01, 04, 08, 13
YG21, 23, 25
YR04, 07, 09

I used Little B Scallops Dies - Large One

I also used a Uniball Signo White Gel Pen to create the dots on the image.  It was actually quite fun to do.  

I hope you feel some inspiration from todays card.  And remember anyone who is on a Design Team is able to enter into this challenge.

I appreciate your stopping by and I your comments bring me a big smile.

Snowed In Trailer

Happy Monday Sweet Friends

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and special times with family and friends for those of you in the U.S. anyway.  And of course I hope all my friends had a great weekend.

Today I am sharing a card I created using this FAB new image from Artist Sandra Caldwell.  

This image can be found in Sandra's Etsy Shop and is called:  

This trailer reminds me of so many happy childhood memories of camping and enjoy the gorgeous outdoors.  Of course, we never did camp in the winter.  

To create this card I decided to do some paper-pieceing on the trailer.  I colored the top of the trailer with Copics.  I used the following Copic Colors:

C3, 5, 7
YG95, 97, 99

I used the Snow Marker to create the snow.
I used a rub-on flower for in the window.
And finally I used a White Gel Pen to create the snow flakes.

I hope you wil check out Sandra's Etsy Shop - there are so many amazing digital images to color and enjoy.  We would also love it if you joined our Facebook Group and here's the link:
