Inspiration Saturday

Doesn't this rug from the Andes look intriguing! I would love to create a rug like this.. Instead, I made a card

iPad 2

Still playing on my iPad. Where did the morning go! The 2 little blue lines are from me dragging my hand over the screen- I need to learn to have a lighter touch. You'll have to tilt your head to see it, I can't seem to get it to rotate.

My New Ipad

One of the first applications I downloaded onto my new IPad is Sketchbook Pro.  It is a whole new world!   I drew this with my finger, in maybe 30 or 40 minutes.

Not exactly stamping. But sure is fun.

Sketch challenge Wednesday

These digital images are free from Elizabeth Dulemba -- cute, huh. It was a bit challenging to color them with copics because they are quite small, but I had a fun time experimenting with the sky. My scanner seems to see yellow much more than blue; the sky is actually yellow, pink and predominantly blue!  I am trying to figure out what to take to Florida with me next week and am thinking I will take 10 markers instead of the how-ever-many I own. So I am trying to choose digi images and markers for a nice compact project-in-a-zip lock bag.

Manga me? Zenn?

My daughter laughs that I even know what Manga means, but I picked up a book by Mario Galea and have been playing with Manga Drawing. Galea suggests drawing his manga first to get the feel of it then branching out and creating your own. So this is my interpretation of the manga by Galea. The copic coloring is all mine since manga is traditionally done in black and white, according to the book. I promised Pam at Firecrackers to try to create a fairy manga with zentangle wings. Now if I could put a Nancy Z. sunset in the background, color with copics and fit it all on a sketch card, I might lasso in all the directions my muse has been flying lately.

Teapot Tuesday

 Sending some sunshine!

Thank you card

I have never sent a card to thank a merchant for great service .....  till now .... Not only was this place incredibly fast, but they sent everything in a cute little bag with colored tissue and a thank you card thanking me for my business.  WOW .... Wish I were more of a knitter, I would love to order more from this place!

Featured stamper Kristen

This card gave me some inspiration this morning ... and I need to get going on my Christmas challenge.  So while the punches and pieces were out, I put together 8 Christmas cards. Not bad, huh!  This snowman set is going to be featured at Firecracker on Wednesday so I think I will link to today and be all set.

The photos don't show the microfine glitter in the snowflake cutouts but it is there and glitzy.  Holiday cards just HAVE to have some sparkle, don't you think?
