You and Me

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic, wedding, love, couple
TGIF!!!  For real! 

A couple of weeks ago, I had to make a wedding shower card for a co-worker.  I must admit, I like how it turned out.

This card features the amazing digital image of "You and Me" from Tiddly Inks.  I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I added the three hearts with a punch.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design.

Make sure you visit the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog today for some more Fab Friday inspiration from the Tiddly Inkers.  You'll be so glad you did.

Enjoy the much deserved weekend y'all.

You Rock

Maybe someone in your world rocks.  I know I am blessed to have several.  Why not give them a card to let them know that you know they rock.  Spread some kindness.  This world can sure use it.

This card is featured today on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog.  All this card taught me is that I need more Distress Inks.  I don't have them all, and had to dig into my I-don't-know-how-to-use-these Distress Crayons to get some colors I wanted.  Background was made with some acetate smooching.

I need to get through this week.  It is going to be a doozy, but I'm telling you there is a rainbow at the end...spring break!

Fight Like A Girl!

Today we are honoring the Lou Daubney, our fearless Design Team Leader at Tiddly Inks.  She's got a battle going on, but we have no doubt she's going to come out the winner.

To let her know just how amazing and strong she is, Christy Croll has created this image "Lou-Fight Like A Girl" for us all to use and cheer our courageous Lou onto victory.  It is a freebie. You can find it here in the Tiddly Inks shop.

To make this card, I  printed the image and colored with Copic markers.  The ribbon image is from A Jillian Vance and the sentiment is from Stampabilities.  The border of patterned paper is from a scrap.  I have no idea who made it, lol.

Stuffed Monkey

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, stuffed monkey
It's Tiddly Tuesday over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog!  This month the theme is "Animal Magic". 

For my card, I printed the stuffed animal image from the digital stamp set of "Monkey Around-Wryn".  I colored the image with Copic marker and added some Glossy Accents on his little heart patch.  I was trying to capture the texture of a stuffed animal.  I'm not sure I succeeded, but at least I thought about texture as I colored. 

Sure hope you join us this month for the challenge.  You can see some awesome Tiddly Inks Design Team creations and the challenge details on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

Moon and Back

If you have been following me long enough, you know how I love to make ocean scenes on my cards.  Now, I'm going to add something to my "I LOVE DOING THIS" list...Galaxy Backgrounds.  These types of cards seemed to fill my social media streams last week and I just had to try my hand at one.  LOVE!!!!

I made this using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set.  I simply added blues and purples to a panel of Ranger watercolor paper.  Over and over again.  Blotting with a paper towel.  Sometimes heat-setting.  The final layer of color was black watercolor, blotted with a paper towel.  The result?  This background.  LOVE!!! 

The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design, stamped in Hero Arts White Unicorn pigment ink and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder.  The "moon" is a result of sponging a Ranger mini ink blending foam repeatedly with Brilliance Moonlight White pigment ink.  A few purple sequins were added, along with some dots of Copic White for the stars.

Hopping With Fun

My friend needs a birthday card for her son who likes frogs.  I found this image I colored almost two years ago that I never made into a card.  Sometimes things just work perfectly when you don't plan things. 

The image is from the older stamp set "Rainy Day Fun" from Kraftin' Kimmie.  The sentiment is from DRS Designs. 

Here's hoping your upcoming week is hopping with fun.

Monkey Around

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, monkey 
Here's a fab card for a Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks!

Yes, that's right.  I'm thinking this one is fabulous.  Am I allowed to say that?

I kept this card very CAS, because I truly didn't want to distract from this adorable digital image from Tiddly Inks called "Monkey Around".  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I added some little dots with Willow dye ink from Simon Says Stamps using a stamp from Stamps By Judith.  Just to give the background a bit of interest.

The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design.

And there you have it.  My fabulous contribution for Fab Friday.  (Gee, I wish I could say that all the time, LOL).
