Rick St. dennis Bayou Witch

This is me on a not-so-good morning, ha!  Actually I'm a morning person.  I'm dead to the world around 9:00 p.m..  This image is called Bayou Witch .  I bought her a while ago, but just got around to using it.  Trying to be a little creative on spring break.  After this...housework!  I colored her with Copics.  Finally, no accidents here.  My Copics behaved themselves.  The bats were cut with the Silhouette.  The sentiment is also from Silhouette.
 The digital paper is from Little Panda Digitals on Etsy.

Rick St dennis is having a DT call for his Facebook page.
This is one of my entries.  Wish me luck!

Interesting Day!



Today was a day I should have stayed in bed and slept instead of card-making.  I love this image, but I had a heck of a time.  The image from Rick St. dennis is titled Carnevale Masque.  Twice my Copics decided to do that bloop thing, so there is a lot more green than I intended.  None of the gems would stay on the mask, even after I glued them on.  I see in my photograph, I lost another and the cats kept stealing my feathers. I give up! In the middle of working on the card I had a blood sugar crash and was coloring with shaking hands. Yes, I should have stopped and eaten, but I was determined to rescue this image and finish it.   I definitely will color this image again.  Hopefully, without all the pitfalls.  I am fond of it, though.  I'm glad I stuck with it.  What a day!

RSD Happy Easter


I made this card for the RSD March Progressive Challenge at Sparkle and Glitter. This is the first time I've done a progressive challenge.   I used the Rick St Dennis image  Whack.a.doo Easter Bunny.  I love the name of that one.  I used Copic markers to color it.  The digital papers are from Samantha Walker.  I finally got to use a bow I tied about two years ago.  At the time I decided not to use it and threw it in my canning jar full of left over ribbon pieces.  It came in handy gor this one.

Racy




The image I used for this week's challenge at Inspiration Destination is quite out of the ordinary for me.  One of our new sponsor's is Kenny K.  I decided to go for one of his more risque images, Carmen Electrafying, just to do something totally different.  I think I completely shocked my husband when he saw it.  I asked him what he thought and he didn't really answer.  I assumed he didn't like it.  Actually, he asked me if I could make him a life-size one.  I don't think so!  It was fun to make this card, though.  This is the first time I tried blue highlights for the hair.  I ended up covering a bit too much of it up when I went back to touch up the black.  Oh well, next time. 

The digital papers are from Po and Po Digital on Etsy.  I colored the image with Copics.  The race flags were cut with the Silhouette.  I am using the Silhouette more and more to decorate cards.

Copics:  B21, B24, B27, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, 
E00, E01, E11, E13, R21, R22, R24, R27, R39, Y38, 100

Carousel Zebra



This week at Inspiration Destination we have three sponsors.  I decided on Carousel Zebra Set by Doodle Pantry.  They had quite a good selection of carousel images.  The set comes with matching papers in quite a few solids and prints along with many variations of the zebra and sentiments, too.  I used one of the pre-colored images in the set, but I went over the stripes with a Copic marker.  My printer doesn't print a deep enough black.  The  images always appear a bit faded so I like to darken them.  I added a banner cut with the Silhouette.

January Christmas Card Stash


This is my favorite Santa image.  It's by Sherri Baldy.  I colored him with Copics.


 This stamp is by PSX.  This image was also colored with Copics.


 










These cards were cut with the Silhouette.
The digital papers are from Cartabella.




My goal this year is to make one card a week to avoid the Christmas rush. 
 Also, to make somewhat flatter cards that are easier to mail.
