OK, here goes... I made this card for my son, he was so sweet to send me something special so I had to make him this "Thank-you" card. My son live in Los Angeles, CA so most of our contact is by phone or email. He is so excited for me in discovering my new hobby so he'll love this card, it's always fun to make a card for him. He's my heart!
Next up are the flowers I made...
I'm most proud of this rose, I think it turned out great. I used a combination of methods to make the others. The green one with the glittered edges is just a 2" scalloped circle punch, I then cut almost to the center of every-other scallop, I colored it with my Copics and added the Stickles on the edge and beads in the middle. For the pink flower I traced the flower from a plastic template from "Paperwishes.com" The template itself is from "Hot Off the Press" The pale rose & the little yellow rose & flower were from the Spellbinders "Rose Creations" dies set. I also sprayed these with the Perfect Pearl Mist. Now to use them on a project! These were really fun to make. Then I decided to play with a few of the I have to see what I could come up with. Here are a few results. I used these "Martha Stewart" corner punches going around circles with this result. It took a lot of trial & error so come up with the right size circle to use so I made note right on the cut out and I'll save these for future reference. I think these would be a nice alternative to use behind something stamped on a circle. If you remember in my last post I mentioned the wonderful "Veronica" who turned me on to this technique on YouTube. So for more information on this technique refer back to this post "Back In Action.
and this is what I did, but I not all that happy with this so I'll play with it some more later.
(as is all my crafting supplies). What's a girl to do when she falls in love? Anyway back to my final projects during my play time. I decided to make my own marker storage solution for now and here it is...
I cut off the box top flaps and covered them with black paper, I also covered the box with paper from my stash, I think this comes from my sewing obsession to make things look good inside as well as outside.
And last but not least here are the images that I colored with my markers. I have a long way to go in learning the coloring techniques but it was fun practicing. I hope to take the Copic classes soon. BTW I got these images from the blog of a very talented artist/crafter Becky's Place she actually has many, many images on her blog that she offers to anyone free to download and she have finally started a line of Digi images for sale that are so cute so check her out. I thanked her for being so generous with her talent and I look forward to purchasing some of her new ones. She also has some awesome tutorials on her blog.
