I managed to get 4 cards made this weekend - 2 Saturday, 2 Sunday. We didn't do much for the holiday, just hung around at home. While my guys were either on their computer or playing their hand-held games, I sat nearby coloring images and making cards. Here's what I managed to put together:
This darling little Tilda Butterfly is from a previous image swap. Her face & hands are colored with COPIC markers (E00, E02, & YR02), the rest of the image is colored with colored pencils and OMS. The sentiment is from The Angel Company's "Little Cupcake" & punched with my EKSuccess large oval punch, then colored lightly with colored pencils; background paper from Paper Pizzazz, mounted onto a lilac pre-made A2 card base; pink mat from DCWV Spring mat stack; flowers from Prima; charm from jewelry section of Hobby Lobby; rhinestone brad from Hobby Lobby; glitter on Tilda's wings done with Sakura Stardust glitter pen; & dark pewter Dew Drops.
This Tilda is one of the images that Vicki from Stamped Smiles sent to me. I was in "autumn mode" most of the weekend, thanks to the summer heat (thinking about Fall keeps me cooler!), so I put this together. The base is a 5x7 K&Co in "wheat"; polka dot mat from DCWV Autumn mat stack; Bohemian strip was a gift from Sharron - the remainder of the strip is inside the card; images is colored with COPIC markers then raised with pop dots; Stickles in Diamond on Tilda's wings; & black glitter Thickers from American Crafts.
Another autumn-y card for ya. This one is on a white A2 base; Indio Plaid paper is from Frances Meyer; tag from K&Co; Gerberra Daisy image from The Angel Company, colored with COPIC markers & distressed with Ranger Ink in Frayed Burlap; twine for the bow; & pearl Dew Drops to finish the look. (I think this one is my favorite out of all that I made this weekend!)
And finally my angel card. On a 5x7 wheat base by K&Co; coral paper from My Mind's eye, stamped with VersaMark and a square spiral stamp; angel image is out of the set "Just Dream" from The Angel Company, colored with COPIC markers; accents on angel are done with Sakura Stardust gel pen; & the sentiment, taken from the internet, reads "All God's angels come to us disguised. - James Russell Lowell" written in Black Glaze pen by Sakura.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. If you don't live in the States, I hope your weekend was relaxing! Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
