150227 - HHs

Hiya All!

The image today is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  The actual Rubber Stamp is Bunny with Tulip.  I used a new technique that I learned from an Online Class from Alyce at Kit and Clowder.  The technique was to colour the image then use the colourless blender to remove some of the colouring to make it look like a stuffed animal.  It did not turn out the way I was hoping, it bled through so I actually made lemonade from lemons LOL  I cut out the image, used another one to glue the cut out image on...see how perfect the whiskers look? LOL.  And then thought, hmmmmmm for a bit more of a pop I will do another colouring of the tulip and vase and pop that up!  The effect was quite nice if I don't say so myself!

The Copic Markers that I used are;

Bunny - E18, 17, 15
Bunny Ears/Feet/Nose - RV10, 21, 13
Vase - BG0000, 000 and R56, 37, 35
Tulip - V17, 15, 12
Leaves - R56, YR04, YG67, YG17, YG03
Sky - BG0000, 000
Shadow/Table - E42, W2, W0

The items that I used to create my card are;

BackGround Paper from One Crazy Stamper

On hand I used the Orange and Green Cardstock, the Green Thread (for the carrot top), Ribbon.  Not sure where all these were bought from I have had them for years LOL.  Common I know your saying the same things LOL

The Challenges that I have entered this card into are;

Thanks for popping in to see my creation!  I look forward to your company again in the future.

This is what Betty sent to me....whooooooppppppiiiiiieeeeee!!!

I think those are SOCKS??? OMG SOCKS are the gift of our Christmas!!!!  Everyone in our family has to get multiple socks (wraped up together, in a bunch of pairs, in a singular SOCK!  LOL each year we have to wait until our birthday to get the matching SOCK LOL)  Good thing my birthday is 5 days after daughter - not so lucky she is Dec 4th LOL  its a long wait for that sock LOLOL.  Cant wait!

Feb 1 - Outlawz Freebie - Sandi Samples - Watercan

Hello Everyone!

Today I thought I would do something different!  Instead of a card, I made myself a calendar book in December.  I want to decorate it so it makes me happy LOL.  The Freebies for the next several months will be used for that purpose (as long as they go with the month theme).  The page in my calendar book is actually a folder.  That way I can keep papers in the book quickly without hole punches!  It is proving to be most effective for me.

The stamp was provided by Sandi Samples and what a perfect time for such a watering can of sun!  When most of us are covered in with snow, it was nice to think of the upcoming summer months LOL.

The Copic Markers that I used for the image are:

Watering Can - E97, E08, E09, E47, YG91, YG93, 110
Flower Centers - Y38, Y35
Red Flowers/Heart - R56, R37, R35
Purple Flower - RV63, RV66, RV69
Leaves - YG25, G24, G28

The can was then cut out and I used my bone to round the can.

I hope you enjoyed my project for the day!  I look forward to seeing you pop in again in the future.
