This first one was themed an 'I Love You' with your choice of layouts or colors - only caveat is that there be no red or pink ... Okay, how about green and blue?
I loved his bee image (and the lady bug is one of those pesky orange ones that sting when they chomp on you). Could either be for a man or woman to send to either a man or woman - LOVING my Copics, but dang is it hard getting into nooks and crannies, lol.
This card was inspired by some bedding found over at
This image is a digital image from Tiffany Doodles - colored with Copics. I absolutely love the way this flower turned out, and very nearly scrapped the celery ribbon but figured it was a small part of the stem, so I'd keep Celery around.
This birthday card for a boy was inspired from the same bedding site, Rosenberry's. The set I liked was the
I created the background paper by taking a fingertip sponge dauber and twisted it in caramel and then giving it a twist when it touched the paper. I kept bouncing it around so there are all different shades of the caramel and blue, depending on how much ink was in the sponge.
This card was made for a Female's birthday. It's another digital image that I colored with Copics. When dry, I added some Icicle Stickles to the petals and let it dry overnight. Never happened to me before, but when I rubbed on the petals next day, the sparkle from the stickles rubbed off (A BIG 'NO-NO' over at Operation Write Home for the troops). Problem solving cap yielded GLOSSY ACCENTS to the rescue! I encased the stickles in glossy accents which also gave the flower petals a bit more dimension. It's a good thing this wasn't a timed challenge, lol, for it took near on a day in a half to get it done. I DO like the bright flower against the mustard backgrounds ... Wasn't sure at first how that would pan out - but was pleasantly surprised.
I'll be right back with the balance of the cards ....
