Pretty Papers


I found this card done on Pinterest.  I have had this paper for a while and didn't really know what to do with it.  I was in need of birthday cards and thought these would be super easy to do.  I made several sets.  The paper if from Stampin' Up.

I made this card for Build Yourself  Holiday Cardmakers on Facebook.  I put a picture of their April Sketch Challenge below.  This particular challenge was quite difficult for me.  I have very poor vision now.  Making a small card is almost impossible.  I printed off the image larger and colored it with Copics.  Then I scanned  and brought it down to the required size.

 I made this card following the May 24 challenge at Splitcoast Christmas Card Challenge, Clothing.  He is by Mo's Digital Pencil.  I am finally getting to use some images that I have never used.  I'm not sure if I got it on him Patreon or if I bought him.  I didn't really like it a lot until I colored him.  Now I love how he turned out.  I colored him with Copic markers, pencils and white pen.  The die is by Spellbinder's.

New CCC Challenge card for May


This is the fitsy of my May CCC cards for Splitcoast.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The image is colored with Copic markers.  I had some slight oopsies on this one so I covered them up with snowflakes.  I rather like the way they look!



This card is my first attempt at water coloring.  The original looks so pale compared to my coloring with my Copic markers.  I was able to brighten it up a bit in my photo program.  Unfortunately, that does not help in real life.  Not only did I not like my painting I spilled an entire cup of paintbrush water on my craft desk.  Geez!  This card was made with the Spellbinder's Better Press system.
