Are You Ready For Some Football?

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, poms, Ohio State, cheerleader, Go Buckeyes!
It's Fab Friday on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog!

I'm hoping for a Fab Saturday!  Go Buckeyes!

This card features an image from the Tiddly Inks Annie Mega Pack.  I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy.  I colored it with Copic markers.  The sentiment is retired from AJVD and the football is from an old PSX stamp.  The little strip of patterned paper from Scrapbook Customs.

The pom-poms were made from a Clover pom maker using Scarlet and Gray Bakers twine.  

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Big day tomorrow!  (I hope)

Gobble

There She Goes, Kecia Waters, Thanksgiving, Turkey, Copic markers,
Just a for fun card here featuring an adorable turkey from long gone There She Goes.  I stamped the turkey onto Hammermill Color Copy paper and colored with Copic markers   There's a strip of paper on this from Carta Bella and some orange enamel dots. 

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I have been sick with a nasty cold, praying it doesn't turn into bronchitis.  My parents brought us Thanksgiving dinner and handed it to us at the door.  I was thankful I had an appetite, as the past two days I've eaten nothing but chicken soup and bananas.  I hate my immune system.  I really do.

Candy Cane Girl

Sassy Cheryl's, Keca Waters, copic markers, candy cane, Christmas
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it's not even Thanksgiving.

Can't feel too guilty though coloring up this cutie from Sassy Cheryl's Candy Cane Love digital stamp set.  I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy paper and colored with Copic markers.  I carefully fussy cut the image and placed on a card panel with some candy cane striped Washi tape.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design.  Three red enamel dots complete the card.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!  I appreciate it!

Warm Beverages on a Snowy Ohio Day

Scraps of Love, Ann Cobiere-Scott, Creative Chaos, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Ohio, coffee
This was a card I put together to help brighten and warm what is dull, gray and cold Ohio in the winter. 

I used the Scraps of Love set designed by Ann Coriere-Scott (available at Creative Chaos) to create a fun, winter snow scene.

I stamped the coffee cup six times with Marvy Black ink onto a scrap of X-Press It cardstock.  I colored each cup with Copic markers and then fussy cut each image.

Using a die from Simon Says Stamp, I created the snow bank using white cardstock.  I adhered the snow bank onto the patterned paper panel by The Paper Studio.  I then placed the coffee cups onto the snow drift.  I stamped the sentiment, also from the Scraps of Love set with Versafine Black Onyx.

Lots of snow this year?  I'm not sure.  But someone might feel a bit warmer because of this card.

Thanks for visiting the blog today.  I posted every day this week!!! Can you believe it?

Pumpkin Everything

Creative Chaos, Ann Corbiere-Scott, Scraps of Love, Kecia Waters, Copic markers
Pumpkin ice cream.  Pumpkin donuts. Pumpkin pie.  #Pumpkineverything is fine with me! 

Isn't this pumpkin image beautiful.  It is from the Scraps of Love set designed by Ann Corbiere-Scott.  This set is available from Creative Chaos in Circleville, which is my nearest local stamp store.

I stamped the image with Marvy Black ink onto a scrap of Hammermille Color Copy.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I fussy cut the image and popped it onto a card base with foam tape.  The hashtag sentiment cracks me up, and rings so true with me this time of year.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  I seem to be on a posting roll, aren't I?

Yappy Birthday

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Heartfelt Hands
I just LOVE and adore this digital image from Sassy Cheryl's.  It is called Heartfelt Hands.  I've had it for a few months now and I am delighted that I had a chance to color it this past weekend.  I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored it with Copic markers. 

The patterned paper is something I've hoarded for years.  It is from Kaisercraft.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

I'd like to think that is Sloopy and me (yes, I still see myself as that young, LOL).  I plan on giving this to my Dad later this month.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Lullaby

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, baby, lullaby
Time for another Tiddly Tuesday!  This time around we are being challenged with the theme of Friends and Family.  Please visit the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for all the details on how to play along with us and see the awesome inspiration from the Tiddly Inks design team.

For my card, I decided to use the gorgeous Tiddly Inks digital image of Lullaby.  I colored the image with Copic markers and placed on a white panel.  I added one small sequin, but felt like this beautiful image needed nothing else.  I just wanted it to "pop" on the white Hammermill Color Copy paper.  A bit of scoring was done around the edges of the image panel.

Sure hope you join us this month for the challenge!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

Christmas Lantern

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Christmas, stained glass
My first Christmas card of the year.  49 days until Christmas.  Hmm.

You can read all about this card that features the stamp set of Christmas Lantern on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.  Go see.  Had to get out the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel for this one.

Like a crazy woman, I have posts scheduled through Saturday.  Please come soon.  I made lots of cards this past weekend with that extra hour.  Therapeutic.

Love You The Mostest

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, wedding
This wedding card features the beautiful digital image of Love You the Mostest Couple from Tiddly Inks.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  A bit of sparkle is on the wedding vale, compliments of a Spectrum Noir glitter pen.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design.

I made this card in mid-October for a wedding and couldn't share it immediately due to the bride being a friend of mine. 

I do appreciate your visit to my blog on this Sunday...this dreary, depressing Sunday.  Still in a funk from yesterday's game. Guess I have a whole year to get over it.

Hello from Ohio

I am having a blast designing some cards with my new stamp set from Creative Chaos and Scraps of Love.  The images are by the very talented Ann Corbiere-Scott.  The set had me at this image.

I stamped the Ohio image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored with Copic markers. I fussy cut around the image. I placed a red glittered heart in the center.  I embossed a stitched circle die into white cardstock and pop-dotted Ohio into the center of the circle.  The sentiment "Hello From" is also from the stamp set.  It was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I scored three lines across the card and then tied some Buckeye twine from A Jillian Vance Design along the top.  A few silver sequins complete the details of this card.

Allow me to say, Go Buckeyes!!! Beat Iowa!!!

Beautiful Leaf

AJVD, leaf die, Kecia Waters, fall
The fall foliage is rather disappointing around these parts, so it is up to me to make cards with beautiful leaves since Mother Nature isn't cooperating much.

Be-leaf it or not, this card is made with scraps.  Go me.

You can read all about the hows on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.

Thanks for sticking with me.  More cards to come in the next few days.

Cupcake Fun

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, birthday, cupcake, bear
I have a couple cards to share with you today, both of which use an adorable image from Sassy Cheryl's Cupcake Fun digital stamp set

The card shown above was printed onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I framed the image with black cardstock and placed onto a scrap of patterned paper.

The card below uses the same image, though printed smaller onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I made a bow with a die from A Jillian Vance Design. The sentiment is also from A Jillian Vance Design.  A few sequins complete the details on this card.

Bee-Cause I Care

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, bee, honey
How sweet is this little bee?  She is a newer digital image from Sassy Cheryl's called Whoopsie Daisy.

To make this card, I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy paper.  I then printed the image again onto a scrap piece of cardstock and fussy cut so that the second image could act like a mask.  After masking the image I used a stencil with hexagons to sponge Distress Ink Wild Honey for a background.  I removed the mask and colored the sweet image with Copic markers. 

The sentiment is from Darcie's Heart and Home and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

Boo!

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Halloween
Can I just stay home all month and make Halloween cards?  Please.  Pretty please.  Its my favorite card making season of all because of the fun color pairings.

This card features an oldie but goodie digital image from Sassy Cheryl's Pumpkins and Ghosts digital stamp set.  I printed it onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored with Copic markers.  The strip along the base of the card is some scrap I've been hoarding for many years.  Seemed like it was meant to be on this card.

Totally Witchin'

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Halloween, witch
It's time for a Tiddly Tuesday over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog!  The theme this month is Spookaboo!  So have some fun creating a spooky fun card.

My card features a brand spankin' new digital image from Tiddly Inks called Halloween Cutie Sweet Tooth Witch.  I printed her onto X-Press It cardstock and had some coloring fun with Copic markers.  The background was also colored with Copic markers with just a bit of Distress Ink sponging.  The sentiment is one of my favorite Halloween sentiments.  It happens to be from an old My Favorite Things set.  A few little glitter drops were added to make the bubbles even more fun.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  Have a totally witchin' rest of the week.

Rain or Shine

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, encouragement, umbrella
Monday, again.  They seem to roll around fast.

This card features the digital image of Charlie's Green Umbrella from Sassy Cheryl's.  I guess I am a rebel because I colored it purple.  I printed this adorable image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  I framed the image with purple cardstock and placed onto a card panel. 

The sentiment is from an old My Favorite Things set.  The clouds are cut from a Gina Marie Designs die.  A few little sequins and some white little dots to decorate the umbrella complete this card.

Sure appreciate your visit to my blog today.

I BE-LEAF in You

I just love playing with A Jillian Vance Design's Grand Leaf Trio die set.  Doesn't that look like a real leaf that fell from a tree?  Broke out the Distress Inks and did some watercoloring on this card.

You can read all about it on my guest post on the AJVD blog today.

To Clean or Not to Clean?

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, cleaning lady
To Clean or Not to Clean?  I think I know the answer to that, LOL.  Hope you chose fun over cleaning this past weekend. 

I chose fun by coloring this Sassy Cheryl's digital stamp called "To Clean or Not to Clean." I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  A few Prismacolor pencil strokes were added into the broom, basket and hair.  I paired this adorable image with a sentiment from Taylored Expressions, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  A few white highlights with a white gel pen. A few little sequins were added for interest.  The image was placed on a card base from Recollections.

Now, I should probably clean house this week.  What a bummer.

Sunflower Season

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, coloring book, Wryn
It's Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  Go check out all of the Tiddly deliciousness on display by the design team.

My contribution comes from the digital Tiddly Inks Everyday Whimsy Coloring Book.  I LOVE these coloring books because all you have to do is decide which image you want, print it, and color it and you can use it for an entire card front.  This image was colored with Copic markers.

Hope the sun shines bright on your weekend!  Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Come Here, You...

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, dog, love, puppy kisses
This card features an absolutely adorable digital image from Sassy Cheryl's called "Come Here, You...".  I simply printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and had fun coloring it with Copic markers.

The sentiment is from the long gone There She Goes and was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The small heart is also from TSG and was stamped with Distress Ink Dried Marigold.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  Make it a great one.  And, hug a dog if you can.  I do and its my favorite moment of the day.

Pot Head

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, coffee
So, I'm not a pot head in any sense of the word.  Despite that, this card was fun to make and cracks me up!

You can read all about this card today as I guest post on the A Jillian Vance Design blog

Eek!

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Halloween, witch, Copic markers
My first Halloween card of the season.  Have I told you how much I enjoy working with Halloween images.  The colors of the holiday are just so much fun. 

This card features the Sassy Cheryl's digital image of Peek-a-Boo Spider.  I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut around the image. 

For the background panels of this card, I used a Tim Holtz spider web stencil and sponged some Mama Elephant Smoke pigment ink.  I stamped an the sentiment from an old MFT stamp set three times with Versafine Onyx Black.  I framed this panel with black cardstock and then placed it onto a panel of patterned paper from K&Company.

Happy Weekend, y'all!

You Are Pawesome!

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, dog
This card features an extremely cute digital image from Sassy Cheryl's called "With Love...Bella".

I printed the image onto some Hammermill Color Copy.  I then colored the image with Copic markers.  I masked the image, and stamped a portion of a background stamp from My Favorite Things with Versamark Watermark ink.  I then sponged some Mamma Elephant Smoke pigment ink onto the paws to achieve the faint paw prints.  The sentiment was heat embossed and is from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  Hope your day is PAWESOME!

A+ Avenger

It's time for another Tiddly Tuesday!  Over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog you will find a brand new challenge for the month, Anything Goes.  So no excuses for not joining us this month!

My card features the Tiddly Inks digital image of A+ Avenger.  I printed her onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I did the out-of-the box technique with a Nestabilities circle die.  The background is a result of white heat embossing a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp and sponging the following Distress Inks: Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire.  The yellow cardstock stars are cut from dies from The Cats Pajamas.  The sentiment strip was stamped with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  A scrap of red ribbon was tied around the card panel.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Have an A+ kind of week!

Playing with Distress Oxides, making Halloween bookmarks and guesting over on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.  That's what I'm doing this Labor Day.

Fri-yay!

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Friday, TGIF, Fri-Yay!
TGIF!  And just look at that THREE day weekend.  Woot!

This card was made using some elements from Sassy Cheryl's Knowledge is Power digital stamp set.  I printed the clock and the apple onto X-Press It cardstock.  The apple is colored with Copic markers.

The sentiment was cut from black foam using an alphabet die from Neat & Tangled.  Patterned paper from Lasting Impressions and The Paper Studio form the layers, along with a piece of black cardstock.

It's Fri-yay!  Enjoy the weekend!

Pay Attention Class

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, school, teacher
Back-to-school season is REAL as of today.  I thought this new image from Sassy Cheryl's called Pay Attention Class would be quite appropriate to commemorate the day. 

I printed Pay Attention Class onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored with Copic markers.  I then added a strip of "marbled notebook" using a unique stamp from Just For Fun, stamped with Versafine Onxy Black. The ABC on the chalkboard is from The Paper Studio and was embossed using Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink and SSS white embossing powder.  The sentiment is from an old My Favorite Things set and was stamped onto a torn scrap of notebook paper and was adorned with a black paperclip that was cut from a My Favorite Things die.

Here's to a great year!

A Good Apple

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, teacher, apple, school
It's a Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog, where anything goes.

Speaking of what goes...there goes my summer break.  It's been a decent one.  Here's to a great school year.  Here's a card that features the oh-so-cute Tiddly Inks digital image "Teacher".  I printed it onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored it with Copic markers.  A little Glossy accents on the apple and some Spectrum Noir Sparkle on the globe.  I thought this image paired well with this sentiment from Lawn Fawn.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  You are a good apple for doing so.

For an A+ Teacher

MFT, Kecia Waters, back to school, A+ teacher
I've had the privilege of working alongside several "A+" teachers.  Let's say this card is for them as we prepare to go back to school.

This card is actually a result of a bunch of elements not used.  The clipboard is from a My Favorite Things die-namic.  The A+ is from The Paper Studio.  "Teacher" is from Lawn Fawn.  The pencil is from A Jillian Vance Design.  The apple brad has been hoarded for years.  And, the card panel patterned paper is from The Paper Studio.

So nice to have them all come together to make this card.  And so nice of you to visit my blog today.  Thank you!

Pencil Nerd

Sassy Cheryls, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, school, pencil
Might as well embrace the back-to-school season.  There's no avoiding it, LOL.

This card features a classic image from Sassy Cheryl's Pencil Nerds digital stamp set.  I love this set because you get both girls and boys, glasses and no glasses.  To make this card, I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut the image and added some Glossy Accents to her glasses.

I framed a piece of notebook paper with black cardstock and added a sentiment from Lawn Fawn.  The paper clip was cut from a My Favorite Things die.  The apple brad puts a finishing touch on this card.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  I very much appreciate it.

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.

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.

Friday, June 23, 2017

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 color...do 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.

Be the Change in the World

Altenew, Kecia Waters, graduation card
Shameless CASE of the Laura Bassen.  'Cause when I saw her card, I pretty much knew I needed the "Big World" stamp set.  And, I needed a fast graduation card and thought her design was perfect.  Learning curve though.  It's my first layering set.  And I was in a hurry.  And pigment inks, yes, old Color Box pigment inks, do much better than dye inks.  I'm slow like that.

I'll get better.  And more original.  I promise.

Mortorboards Off!

Avery Elle, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, graduation
Here's another graduation card, made for a friend.  It features the Avery Elle set "Hat's Off", though oddly enough I preferred this sentiment from A Jillian Vance Design.  Copics, X-Press It cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black and some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle.  That's all there is to this one. 

Want more graduation cards?  Keep coming back to this blog.  There's a couple more.

'Cause Everyone Is Graduating It Seems

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, graduation, Wryn
I have made more graduation cards than I care to count, LOL.  And I'm not done yet. This one is for a local grad, ordered by a friend of mine. 

It features one of my go-to images for graduation.  It is the Tiddly Inks digital image of "Wryn-Graduate-Go Great Places." I love it because you can totally customize it with the school's colors and the graduate's hair and skin color. 

Copic markers, X-Press It paper.  You know the drill.  The letters and numbers are from Concord & 9th.

I made this card for the current challenge over at Tiddly Inks...make it rectangle.  Head on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for all of the details so you can play too.

Dolphin Graduate

Kecia Waters, Distress Ink, Distress Oxide, PSX, Concord and 9th, MFT, Avery Elle
My co-worker needed an elementary graduation card for her daughter.  Here's what I was able to do for her.

Lots of companies coming together on this one.  The star of the card, the dolphin, is an old PSX stamp that I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored with Copic markers.  The graduation hot is from Avery Elle's  "Hat's Off".  It too was stamped with Memento Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut both images.

On a panel of white cardstock, I sponged Distress Ink Salty Ocean and Distress Oxide Broken China.  I did a quick spritz of water.  The sun is sponged SeaShells Conch Shell dye ink. I place a partial die cut cover up from My Favorite Things over the scene.  Then with Concord & 9th's "Perfectly Penned", I stamped the school and the year.

Thanks so much for looking.  I actually really like how this one turned out.
