April Showers

Sharing a little card I put together last night.
I used the sketch for Sweet Sunday Sketch and a Tiddly Inks image I've had for some time, but never took the time to color it.


To create my background, I sponged on some distressed inks to the top panel before adding some raindrops using a stencil and embossing paste.  I colored the image, Donna, with Copic markers.  I then used my scraped paint stencil to create rain drops/streaks on the image panel.  Stamped my sentiment on my fishtail banner, added some twine and a button to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend!
God bless!!

I think this Wagon Wheel image from Doodle Pantry makes a great masculine card.

TMS #295 with Bugaboo!

Good Tuesday morning!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!!

We have one of my favorite sponsor's this week, Bugaboo!!
Bugaboo is one of my all time favorite digital image stores, so many fun images to choose from!

So to win some Bugaboo awesomeness for yourself, just follow this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch to create a card.  Then link it up over at the Tuesday Morning blog.  We will pick one random entry to win some Bugaboo images!

So on to this week's sketch....

As you can see, I flipped the sketch.
I used one of the newer Bugaboo images, Spring Elephant 1.    The original image has flowers and a butterfly, but since I was fussy cutting, I cut them out to save time.  Plus since this card is for my grandson's 2nd birthday, I think it looks a little more masculine without the flowers.  I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils.  I sponged some clouds onto the blue oval panel.  I cut the balloon with my Silhouette.  I then applied black ink to the edges of the balloon so it looks more like a stamped image,  I did add some glitter to the little heart on the elephant.  Note to self - clean tip of glitter pen before adding glitter to next object.  I ended up with a little red glitter line on my balloon because I didn't think to clean my glitter pen tip before I added glitter to the balloon, so I accidentally transferred some red ink  from the heart, to the balloon.  I popped the image and the balloon up with foam tape for some dimension.  A little black string ties the balloon to the elephant's trunk.

Now be sure to check out what the other design team members created.

Remember to link up your creation by Sunday evening to be in the random draw for some Bugaboo images!
Thanks for stopping by!  God bless!

Bella Birthday card

Today I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my sister.
I used Stampingbella's Caitlyn has a Cupcake Party!

I went with a pastel color combo.  The image is colored using Prismacolor pencils.  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I did add some silver Wink of Stella to the cupcake tray and some clear glitter around the frill on the skirt bottom.  Added a little glitter to the small white heart and a few sequins for accent.  I added some stitching to the top of the fishtail banners.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a very happy and blessed Easter weekend!
