Monochromatic fairy

Monochromatic Fairy - For my Copic class we are being challenged to make a monochromic card. This is Michelle Perkett's Holly fairy. I like her in the monochomatic colors. As many of you know I like to change an image from the expected to the unexpected. Holly is colored with my Copics. The paper is from the Rustic pack by DCWV. I used some flowersoft on the fur of her dress. The snow recieved some icicle Stickles and the leaves and the center of the poinnettas in her hair recieves some plantium Stickles. The ribbon and the little wired beads were from my stash. Peace ( look at the word next to the ribbon) make your own embellishment #121 sparkle and shimmer

Unto us

Unto us - This is the last of the 3 cards that I designed for the Penny pinching class that I am teaching Friday night. When I broke down the cost per card it equelled only 10 cent per card. And if it was gotten on sale at least at 40% off it would only be 6 cent per card!!!! I kept it simple because many of the ladies will not have had any expereince at card making.
I used a stampset by Inkadinkadoo. Gold embossing powder and a tiny gemstone by Darcie. #71 plain and simple

Old Fashioned Birthday

Old Fashioned Birthday - This fun image of Polly, Dolly and William is from the pen of Michelle Perkett. I love her images. They have lots of curls and swirls. I colored PDW with Copics and I used a fun new method of coloring in pastels. It was fun to try. I did not use any stickles or glitter on this card as it is going to our soldiers in OWH.

Crimson Hope

Crimson Hope- I love this image!!! She was so easy to color. I think this is my favorite of all the cards that I have done recently. You can get this digi stamp a Michell'e Esty Shop. She is colored with Copics. For one of the challenges we were to use an aperture which I think is a window. If you look at the image closely in the first image you can see the shine over the image. That is the window made with acetate. The image is actually on the inside of the card. The 2nd photo is the inside view. #53 red-gold-cream Christmas/oriental favorite medium Copics of course!

Sweetie - This is the treat box that I made for the candy party at Michelle Perkett's group on CDA that we had on Sunday. We had no idea what the challenge would be and only 1 hour to come up with a container that could hold candy. The party was a blast and it was really fun to see what everyone came up with on such short notice. It also meant that we had to use what we had on hand, as there was no time to run to the craft store. I had such a fun time. You can get this image at Michelle's Esty shop.

Autumn Willow

Autumn Willow - The awesome image is Willow by Michelle Perkett. You can can get this image at I colored her before in blues, but it made me only want to color her again in the richness of the fall. I colored Willow with Copics and the berries and the veins of her wings with Pearl EX. I am going to have to do more research on the product because even after heatsetting it still wipes off whenever I run my finger across it. DP is Laundy Line by MME. If you will look carefully you will see that the panels for the sketch are tulle. The orange tulle is easier to see than the gold. I also used some small pieces of the tulle for the flower bow. sketch #45 pumpkin, kraft and a purpley/wine

A Day at the Park

A Day at the Park - Image is Skater Ian by the Greeting Farm. I thought of Tyler when I bought this stamp. Ian is colored with Copics. DP is Crate paper Orbit Collection. It is double sided, so I was able to flip it over and use both sides. I have no idea who made the flowers. Did you notice that the center of the flower is a wheel? I found these cute wheel brads, by Leaps and Bounds, a while back and have been hoarding them.
