I wanted to make a birthday card for a sweet friend of mine, Emily, so I decided on this darling image of Tilda Playing Hopscotch from the new Sweet Rainbow collection.
I have been oogling cards around the web that have used oms & colored pencils on kraft paper. I LOVE the look of that technique! Now, an artist I'm not, so don't get your hopes up! But this is my first attempt at coloring on kraft paper using oms & colored pencils...
So, for anyone who is obsessed with Magnolia stamps (and who isn't, really?!) you know there are some A-M-A-Z-I-N-G card artists out there. And yes, they really do turn cardmaking into an art! Well, one of those very talented ladies is Angie Hunt. Another is Suzanne Dean.
Suzanne founded an online "class" that teaches people how to use Copic markers, Color Me Creative Classroom. Now, Angie is also teaching a class through CMCC for distress inks. If you have seen her work, I don't have to tell you it's beautiful! If you haven't, you're missing out (seriously, go check it out!) BUT lucky us!!! Angie is giving away 1 free membership to her distress inks class through CMCC. Yay!
So what are you waiting for?? Get on over to Angie's blog and enter to win this FABULOUS candy!!!
Hello and thanks for stopping by! Today, I have a card that, when I look at it, I think to myself, "Well, they can't all be winners!" :o( I don't know if it's the colors (pink isn't one of my faves to work with) or the layout, but whatever it is, I'm just not feeling it.
Good evening all my blogging buddies! I received an email today from my nearest and dearest friend, Jennifer,
demanding requesting that I add another post to my somewhat neglected new blog. Then she proceeded to send me pictures she had taken of cards I have made. How, umm, thoughtful?
So here is a gift set I made for my son's teacher at the beginning of the school year.
A few weeks back, the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog had a color challenge to use the combination of orange and green. WHAT??? Eew! Was kind of my first reaction. But I am happy to report that it wasn't that bad. I actually kinda like what I came up with. My darling didn't have my blog up in time for me to enter the challenge but that's ok, I love him anyway! :o)
