Colleen's Anniversary

Does it look like  a beach ball?

I keep making square cards and then being frustrated at how to mail them. This one is going in a big envelope as it seemed to grow as I worked on it.

 Digis are yours to grab ... I am particularly proud of the umbrellas!

Coloring homework

I am taking an online class in copics and this is my homework for this week.  We are learning to color ruffles and folds.  I am still on lesson one ...

Next week we do wood and I can fix up the box she is sitting on.

Teapot Tuesday!

Tuesday means teapots so here is today's!

I kind of reversed the colors.

VSN challenge use fabric

This is my card for the VSN challenge using fabric ... I cut some strips off the bottom of a new pair of black jeans when I was shortening them and these wedges were cut where the seams were. I think it looks kind of unique!

My water is scribblings of copic markers and a white out pen.

VSN Inspiration challenge May 2 8 PM

How could you not be inspired by this gorgeous photo --- so the challenge is to create a card inspired by something you see here.  

 My eye was caught by the clouds and sparkling water - so I pulled out my Paper Temptress crepe and rubbed a copper metallic pad across it... MAGIC !!! 

The clouds are rough torn and overlapped from mottled vellum, and you can't quite see the effect of the translucent vellum over the slightly metallic sky.   

What a fun challenge!
