Don't you just love this sad little chap.  He is from Digi Doodle Shop  available here.  I colored him with Copics and all the papers are from my stash.  Unfortunately, I don't usually keep track of who manufactures the papers.  I am pretty pleased with how the inside of this card turned out. I used a new combo of colors I found on Pinterest for the skin.  It just doesn't work for me.  I'll be switching back.

Copics:  B04, B32, B34, C00, C0, C2, C3, E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, E15, E23, E27, R20, R24, R27, Y15, Y18, Y19

Happy Easter

                                                                                             I love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I got her last Easter, but never used her.  I decided to try a different fold.  I'm not sure if I did it correctly or not.  It's a angled easel card.  I colored this with Copics.  All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The papers are from the Miss Caroline collection by My Mind's Eye.  These particular papers are from a Designer Paper Pad called Howdy Doody.

This took a lot of Copics:

B01, B32, B34, BG0000, BG000, BG10, BV01, BV04, BV11, C0, C1, C2, E000, E00, E11, E15, E17, E34, E35, E37, G24, R20, R21, R22, R32, R85, RV02, Y17, Y21, YG05, YR12, YYR21

This is my final entry for the Digi Doodle Shop Design Team.  I will greatly miss this wonderful team.  The one consolation is that I will still be able to shop and get their gorgeous images.  Keep those animals coming!  I have been struggling with my artwork lately and am not really satisfied with how I'm doing.  I am planning on taking some classes so I can better learn shading and some other coloring techniques.  A natural born artist I am not. 

This image is from Digi Doodle Shop and is available here.  The papers are from my stash.  I used my new distressing toy from Zutter.  it works pretty well and saves alot of work.

For Julie

This card was made for a dear friend at work whose sister passed unexpectedly. I made the card with several pages so that lots of people could sign.  I made another one recently and that worked out very well.  The papers are from my stash.  All flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The doily die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I cut one of the doilies in quarters and used the pieces to decorate the inside pages.
