Another Day in Paradise

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, beach, ocean, paradise
It's Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks

This card features an image from the Tiddly Inks Everyday Fun With Friends Coloring Book.  All I had to do was print the image and color it with Copic markers.  The background paper is a beautiful teal blue and I used an embossing folder to make the textured waves.  The sun was cut from a Simon Says Stamp die and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.  Who now is singing "Another Day in Paradise" by Phil Collins, lol!  A few enamel dots put the finishing details on this card.

Make it a FABULOUS day.  You should go over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog to see some more FABULOUS creations and welcome some FABULOUS new Design Team members. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

On Top of the World

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, world, map
It's a Tiddly Tuesday on this Independence Day!  The challenge is to make a creation with a Tiddly Inks image that celebrates independence, empowerment and positive feelings.  You can read all about the challenge and see some awesome Design Team cards over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  We do hope you join us!

Rather than going patriotic with my card, I decided that this Tiddly Inks image called "On Top of the World" suggested empowerment.  This would make a great graduation card, don't you think.  And here I thought I would steer clear from graduation cards for a bit.  Already one in the stash for next year.

Anyway, I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I did some shading with Prismacolor pencils.  The map background is actually a background stamp from Impression Obsession.  I simply stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black and sponged some color with Distress Inks Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass.  The sentiment seemed perfect.  It is from Simon Says Stamps and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black also.  A few little sequins are on the card as a finishing touch.

Nothing amazing planned for today's festivities.  That's okay.  I prefer it that way, really.  This holiday is keeping my Sloopy feeling safe from the booms.

Yes, Please

It's time for another Fabulous Friday at Tiddly Inks

My card features Molly at a fabulous location, wouldn't you say.  I could use a beach right now. 

This Tiddly Inks digital image is called "Molly Swims." I printed it onlto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  You know me, I had to put her in a beach scene.  The white along the water's edge, is just some Copic White. 

Happy Summer!

More Graduation Cards

Avery Elle, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, graduation
I am beginning to think I am the only person on this earth that isn't graduating from something.  I really don't anticipate any more graduations in my future.  But should a friend need a graduation card, the Hats Off stamp set from Avery Elle is becoming my go-to-set.  So easy to customize, and those dies...good investment.

I'm thinking you all can guess how I made this.  If you have any specific questions just email me.

Now, the second card is just like the first...except it uses puke colors.  No school in Ohio should have these colors as school colors.  It should be illegal.  Let  me tell you, it was painful to make.

Hungry Hound

James Horvath, Kecia Waters, dog, Copic markers
This is the card I gave to my Dad for Father's Day.  It features a now-not-available digital image from the no-longer Squigglefly called "Hungry Hound" by James Horvath.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I punched three little hearts, colored them with Copics and added some Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

This card looks like Sloopy begging for food from my Dad.  He really enjoys feeding her.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Florals with Thanks

Inkadinkadoo, Kecia Waters, Copic markers
So, I'm as pleased as punch with this one.

I'll set the stage.  It was a late Saturday night, a semi-clean work area, tunes of Seals & Crofts, nothing really pressing to do, creating for just the fun of it.  So I got a little lost in coloring.  Don't you love it when that happens?  I do.  It's been awhile. 

I'm on this kick right now of looking at the shelves that line one entire wall of the stamp room.  Filled, and I mean filled with old wood-mounted stamps.  'Cause I began this hobby before there was any such thing as unmounted or clear polymer. 

This card features an image from Inkadinkado.  I had to stamp it twice to go across the card and that required a bit of masking.  But, I had the time.  Then I just colored most of the night away with Copic markers.  It was glorious.

The sentiment is from an A Jillian Vance Design die. 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

In the Stamp Room, We Forget the Older Stamps

PSX, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, shells, seashells
It is kinda fun to take a very old stamp set that's been sitting on a shelf for years and bring it back to life again.  I should be doing more of that, instead of buying new.  All of these new releases that companies have make you feel like you must have the latest and greatest.  And I fall for that (just see the number of stamps I have).  But a part of me has the need to justify those stamps just sitting there...because they are way out dated according to industry.

This card features a stamp set by PSX.  Yes, I went that far back.  Wood mounted.  When I bought this stamp, I didn't know quite how to use it.  It was before Copics, and I was still in my head trying to figure out you get color with the color of ink pad, LOL.  I struggled with that. 

So for this card, I inked the three shell stamp from PSX with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I added my own dotted sand across the card with a Memento Tuxedo Black marker because the image itself is not quite three inches wide.  I colored the scene with Copic markers, added some Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle and a few glass beads.  A bit of white gel pen swirls tried to help the edge of the water.  The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, also from the long-gone PSX.
