March 2018 Markers Class completed



It's April 23 and I finished March's class!  Not too bad when the classes start on the 15th of each month.  I like how this turned out.  Maybe a bit too much rain in the top left but hey I have been on the street where it rained on one side of the street and not the other LOL.  It can happen people!

The classes can be found at Kit and Clowder.  I highly recommend them!

High Hopes - Bunny Blooms - Happy Easter

Hi Everyone

Here is a High Hopes Image called Bunny Blooms.

I decided to make 3 of the same image because I have 1 daughter and 2 Niece's and they simply all needed their own Easter Card!  OK the real reason is to practice doing the fur!  I hope you like it, I think it turned out amazing.  I even experimented with the grass.  Which one do you prefer?  Let me know by leaving me a comment below.





The image was coloured using the following Copic Markers;

Bunny:  E37, E35, E33, E31
Bunny Ears: RV10, RB11
Tulips - Purple - V12, V15, V17
Tulips - Red - R35, R37, R39
Tulips - Green - G46, G43, G40
Nose - W8, W6, W4
Grass: YG63, G99, G94, G21

Happy Birthday to Me!


Today is my birthday and a few days ago my husband says to me "Can you make me a birthday card?"  Now I thought it was for his birthday that is middle of January so I said no problem honey! I have lots of time! He said "No, you only have 2 days" and snickered....The bugger wanted me to make my own birthday card for him to give to me LOLOL. Now I thought at first cheap bugger but then I thought hmmmmm that was really sweet that he likes my cards so much that he wanted to give me my own creation!
So I thought to myself, I could just make a card but thought I would challenge myself and make a mixed media card...my first mixed media project! I think it turned out pretty nice.

My Baby turns 18 today!

WOW!  18 years ago I had the most beautiful daughter in the world...I can say that because I am her mother ;c)   So I was compelled to make her a birthday card.  I hope she likes it.  I used her University Colours on the card to pair up the next chapter in her life begins with Adulthood!


The Digi that I used was Chels 18 from Simply Betty Stamps!  When I got this stamp although it was made for Chels it resembled my daughter quite a bit!  So I knew when the time came and Ashley celebrated her 18th birthday that I would use this image.  I paired it with the Tim Holtz Crazy Things Stamps for the Party Hat, Balloons and in the inside of the card, the Wrapped Gift.


The Copic's that I used to colour this card are:

Skin:  E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair:  E49, E47, E44, E43
Lips:  R29, R27, R24

Glasses:  B0000
