This first one is called Princess Jennifer Latte - Heartbreaker ... Leaving broken hearts in her wake. I colored her softly so she would fit with this sparkly Stampin' Up designer paper I had in mind - and why not do the whole thing in pink? I used Copics/alcohol spray to color the primas so they'd match the card. I also drew a line down the flourish in spica clear glitter gel pen to give it sparkle as well.
This next one was made following a sketch at one of the challenge blogs, but I'm re-thinking that one, so went ahead & posted here. After coloring with Copics and adding glossy accents to the cherry on top, it still felt like something was missing - I know ! Sparkles! I added some pink Stickles to the outer frosting and icicles and pink to the sprinkles on the top. Yummo, huh?
This 3rd card is my favorite - of today, anyway. I forgot how much I love distressed cards. My distressing tool has been MIA for last few weeks ... Guess what I found in the bottom of my Copic marker basket (yep, the distressing tool). So, I had to distress (even though I know how to distress a card without a tool - did it for a long while before they even came out with a distressing tool, lol). Anyway - I digress ... I added the sentiment directly onto the image on the computer. After coloring him with Copics, I used a negative circle to sponge a frame of sorts partially around him. On that border, I added 2 flowers that I colored with Copics and alcohol then added some glossy accents to his schnoz, the needle and the thimble. He's such a cutie, isn't he?
Well ... that's all I have completed right now ... seeing as it's 4:58 am ...
I may TRY to get an hour or two in before everyone else gets up.
