I'm a Romantic

Yeah not really but the card is.
Yep I got my craft on today! Two days in a row! Clean clothes? Meh who needs those?

This is made with yet more Cosmo Cricket paper and sponging. Not surprised are you? The image is from Because I Care. I stamped it Soft Sable and then colored with some Prismacolor pencils. I used the outside the box technique with the Nestability (first time) and really like it. That piece was sponged with Crumb Cake in. I finished it all off with some crumb cake seam binding and a button.

Blowin in the Wind

Got my craft on THIS MORNING! And then I actually took a picture of it and am sitting here writing a blog post! Will wonders never cease?

Anyway here's the fun little card I made. I really like it. For the balloons I stamped them then stamped the image again on a post it and cut out the uninked portions so I could use it as a mask on the first image. I masked it off and sponged, ok Q Tipped, Crumb Cake ink into the spaces to give it a little dimension. The edge of the cloud paper and clouds are sponged in Crumb Cake too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Two Firsts!

I got my craft on the other day. I'm attempting to teach myself how to color with Copics. What I've learned so far is I need more colors ;-)

I tried to start out easy and opted for a spray of flowers, this one from Elements of Style is a fave, and let my marker colors dictate where the card went from there. So that leads me to my second first...Peach Parfait. It's an In Color from last year and this is the first time I've used it. But it went really well with the colors of the flowers (Y23, Y17, R30) and I like oranges playing off cool blues (Pool Party this time).
