Copic Rose Card

https://sellfy.com/p/U6xq/

http://www.artstampsstore.com/
The new challenge at Crafting from the Heart is just for fun. This is my first attempt at using Copic Markers on a Rose (Fl 1) by Morgan's Artworld.

Here are the markers I used:
R22, R24, R27
G09, YG17

The finished colored image was adhered to a light red base card and frames cut on the Cricut Cutting Machine were adhered overlapping at an angle giving the front of the card a kaleidoscope effect.

I finished off this card using 3 adhesive pearls in graduated sizes.

I'm looking forward to see your entries in our challenge at Crafting from the Heart.

Happy Spring Card

I had such a lovely walk today along the beach at Flagler Beach, Florida. The weather was just perfection, breezy and dry with a lovely blue sky. Of course dry isn't exactly good, when it comes to Florida and the fire index. But the walk felt good and I came home inspired to color a bright and happy card.

I chose Lucy's Flowers by Sasayaki Glitter, which I colored using Copic Markers. I placed this sweet image in the Craft artist 2 program and merged it with a background and text.

Spring was lovely today in Florida!

A Study for Miss Fisher Altered Canvas

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries continues to inspire. I've designed a mixed media altered canvas around Ruby, a Julie Nutting paper doll stamp. I gave her a Miss Fisher hair style and love her 1920s look. I designed Miss Fisher's outfit in a casual style.

I used Graphic 45 paper for the background and picture. I adhered and sealed each piece of the background using Mod Podge. I used two pieces of  Washi Tape, one at the top and the other near the middle. On the right side I glued a Julie Nutting flat tag armoir and on the left a book case printed from a card kit on Craftsuprint.

Come again, maybe there will be another room setting with a fabulous paper doll!

Those Boots Card

http://digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15&products_id=1532
http://digistamps4joy.co.za/eshop/
There's a new challenge today at Digistamps4joy. The challenge theme for #135 is Anything Goes with a Twist of Inspired by a Song. For my Design Team card, I chose Cowgirl. The song that inspired my choice is the Nancy Sinatra hit "These Boots were Made for Walking." It's the song I sing, when I go to karaoke with my friends. Before you ask any questions, no I don't sing well and very rarly carry the tune! Karaoke is just something to do with my friends.

I colored the hat and boot (a horse shoe is also in the set) using Copic Markers and a touch of Recollections silver metallic pen. Then I placed the colored image in the Craft Artist 2 program, where I merged it with elements from the Steampunk Adventures digikit. I added text.

I printed the composition once and printed the boots alone once. I cut out the boots and placed soft pads on the back. I adhered the image on the top of the composition. This was adhered to a blank black card. I embellished the card with stickers from Recollections.

I hope my card has inspired you to join our challenge at Digistamps4joy.
