To be Young Again

Do you remember those days when you could get away with wearing a frilly skirt around those hips and it looked cute?  I loved this little Saturated Canary stamp from Little Darling Rubber Stamps.  This little girl is all about being happy.  It made me happy taking a moment (or quite a few moments) to color her up.

"Water-color" Background - Tutorial

I have had a large amount of request on how I do this technique.  I promised a tutorial so here it is!  Back in 2012 I was messing around with my Copics and discovered a fun technique of which I currently use ALL the time.  I think you will enjoy this technique for many applications.  I know the image looks small but if you right-click on the image you can save to your computer and enlarge to see better. - Enjoy!

Color of the Day 211



***Please note that I color using the lightest color first, dark, medium and back to light.  I only slightly blend the edge of the last color placed.  Then add the shadow. 

If you miss one of the combo's you can find it on the side of the blog labeled "Color of The Day".  Please realize that your computer screen and printer can change the way you see it or how the colors print, but if you try it yourself you will get some fun combos...promise!

Also, feel free to pin them.  I ask that you do not sell them printed out, do not place them on your personal blog but rather link to mine.  These are for personal use only.   Leave me some love if you want to see more!

Thank you to all my followers and fans from all over the world.

Bee Happy

How about another amazing image from Power Poppy?   The newest addition to the Instant Garden Collection just happens to be this amazing Bees in Foxglove.  I love wild flowers and although quite poisonous  so very beautiful. 

This digital stamp features three lush stalks of Foxglove (Digitalis) with three plump bumblees buzzing around doing their bumblebee thing! Add in a cheery all occasion sentiment and you have one stunning set that is ready to download, print, color and create with!  As you can see I chose to do just one stalk of the foxglove cluster...thats the nice thing about digitals...any size, any look.

Get Better

Here is the little sticky bear again.  I created this card for class.  I made it so it could hold a tea bag on one portion of the stair step card.  (which reminds me I better get some for the class attendees cards). I used a die from By Diezynes to create the flowers.  It is going to be a fun class!

Hang In There

How about another fun stamp from CCDesigns using a Doodle Dragon stamp.  Every have one of those days that you just need a pick-me-up?  Bet it's not this kind!  I love his little expression, don't you?!  This is another card I will be teaching in class this weekend.  If you are not local you can just grab your own stamp and copy...simple as that!  I did place the whole image on an action wobble so he wiggles.  Cute right?

Oh Putz, I Forgot Your Birthday!

Here is another cute stamp from CCDesigns using a DoodleDragon stamp.  They just make me happy...how about you?  This is one of the cards in the upcoming (sold out) class I will be teaching at The Paper Collage in Arizona.  I am recovering from the Fun Full Weekend Copic Boot Camp I host in Phoenix and getting back to life I know it.  Thought I would get some of my cards posted.

Happy Mothers Day!

The best gift are the ones from the heart!  It's the day before Mothers Day so I thought this image was just perfect.  I hope we all have that someone special in our lives that has guided us along the way (wether we like it or not at that moment).  In my later years of my life I find myself saying "you were right" a lot more then back when I was younger.  Guess it just took a while for me to figure it out.  So to you Mom...you were right!  Happy Mothers Day to all those special someones out there!


I used No-Line stamping for this image so the lines almost disappeared and the image stands out more.

Some People Feel the Rain

Dying to See You

Zoe has the best challenges EVER.  This months challenge is "portrait",  Well for those that know me know I can not be normal.  Instead of a pretty little gal with flowing hair I decided to get crazy.  I went with one of the zombie image in the store and chopped it all up to create quirky fun.  You must try one of the challenges someday.  You can find the challenges HERE.  If you are DYING to color up a zombie you can find it HERE.

I colored his head twice and put it on an action wobble so his head shakes.  wish i could show you but i need to work on short videos...so you must only imagine. - enjoy
