Late


The challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Time."  I chose the image "Late" from Mo's digital Pencil.  The clock images are from Vectoria Designs on Etsy.  I absolutely love the little stopwatch I bought from Live and Love Crafts in Great Britain.  I wish American shops would carry items like they do overseas.  This is the first time I have used washi tape.  It is from Tim Holtz.  I was surprised at how easy it was to apply.  The paper is from my stash.  I decided to go monochromatic with this card.  The image is colored with Copic markers.

Copics:  E23, E25, E27, E30, E31, E49, E41, E42, E50, E51, E53, E55, R01, Y28

Boy, am I ever glad this post is done!  Blogger was being a total !#&*?%.  I didn't think I would ever get it done.  Things just wouldn't stay where I put them.  It's not what I wanted, but it's done, finally!

Welcome to the Neighborhood


This is my first Guest Design Team card for Fitztown Challenge Blog.  They are having a DT call now through June 1.   Those accepted get a nine week trial in which they design up to six cards.  After eight weeks a decision is made as to permanent status.  Wish me luck!

The challenge this week is Lots of Layers.  I had a different idea that I was anxious to try.  I printed out four images and was planning to cut them up and apply them in layers.  I was excited about trying it.  Unfortunately, a few of my brown markers were drying out. I knew I'd never have enough ink to finish all the layers.   I decided to go with one layer and lots of cardstock layers.  Maybe next time. The leaf border was cut with the Silhouette.

This adorable image from Fitztown is available here.  
I used Copics to color it.  The list of colors was pretty extensive.

Copics:  B14, B23, B41, BV02, C0, CQ, C2, C3, C4,  
 E23, E25, E29, E33, E34, E35, E37, G20, G21, G24, G28,
 R14, R20, R22, R24, Y13, Y17, YG01, YG93, YG95, YG07

I tested every one of my markers to see which ones were beginning to dry out and ordered about 15 refill bottles.  Dick Blick Art Materials has them for a pretty reasonable price.  The markers are 5.24 and the refills are 6.29.  That's pretty reasonable compared to other places I've priced them and I only paid 2.00 for shipping!

Birthday Numbers

A Project with My Grandson



This card was so much fun to make with my grandson, Lucas.  He's nineteen months old and loves to color with (and eat) markers!  I think he could color for hours.  He must take after Grandma.  Anyways, I had him finish the inside of the card for his Mommy.



I had a choice of two images and had a hard time deciding which to use.  I decided I would like the other with finger painting so I need to buy some paints.  Look for that one in the future!  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Isn't he adorable.  It comes in a boy or girl image.  The digital papers are from Echo Park.  I colored the image with Copic.  Lucas colored the inside with Crayola Washable Markers.  There is no way this little guy is getting a hold of my Copics!

Here is a picture of the little artist, himself.  He wasn't actually eating the markers.  He colored on his hands, licked them and wiped them on his face.  What a character!  At least they were non-toxic! We'll have to make this an annual event.  Happy Birthday, Katie!

Cowboys Don't Take Baths


The challenge this week at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Make Us Laugh."  I chose this image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I used it several years ago and really loved it.  I thought it would be ideal for this challenge.



The digital paper is from CartaBella.  I cut the rope border with the Silhouette, although, it doesn't really look anything like rope.  I colored the image with Copics and added lots of distressing so it would look "dirty."
