30 Day Coloring Challenge #4 – Day 2 – A card

logoHello Everyone! It’s Tuesday and day 2 of the coloring challenge. After yesterday’s craziness, I decided the first thing I would do this morning was to get my color on!! Yesterday my tools of choice were color pencils and today, I have gone back to my love – Copics!

day2aI had printed up this Saturated Canary digi a long time ago and only colored one so this one was begging my attention.

day2bI usually color skin and hair but first but for some reason I jumped from skin to clothes before coloring in her hair. I have been playing around with colors lately for my brown skinned beauties and decided not to go with the black or dark brown that is predominantly used and went straight to a camel color brown for fun. Since we all know I love books, I thought I would find a book sentiment to create a card with this image. I found the one I used on Pinterest.

day2cI used my Silhouette to design a fun sentiment to add to the card once I finished coloring. I matched the color of the font to her dress and because the sentiment used the word ‘dream’ I decided a cloud shape would be the perfect shape for a print and cut on the Silhouette. I also wanted to shake it up a bit and oriented the cloud 90 degrees counter clockwise.

day2dI couldn’t find my matching distress ink pad to edge the clouds so I used my Copics to create the effect.

day2fI used this lovely paper from Crate paper and enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye to create the dream bubbles.

day2eI’m pleased with the final card but I need your help. What color should I make her earrings? Gold or Silver and in the little box on the cover I want to right the word ‘Read’. What do you think?

With Lin’s encouragement I would like to enter this card for the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge

Happy coloring and I will see you tomorrow!



12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts: Day 2 – Ornaments card

day2_ornaments1Good morning and welcome to day two of my 12 Days of Holiday Cards and Crafts!  What a difference one day can be from another. Yesterday the temperature got up to 64 degrees and today it’s barely 40 and cloudy.  Brrr… Makes me want to crawl under a blanket with some tea!


Today’s card I used an old Hero Arts stamp set and stamped several on a sheet of Copic paper and then colored them up with my Copics and cut them out.  I attached them to the card with some brads and used pop dots to add dimension to one of the ornaments. I used Stampin Up paper as the card base and added some corrugated paper for more texture to the card. I left the inside blank.

I hope you are having a blessed day and I will see you tomorrow with another creation!!
