... and neither are MY CARDS!! LOL!!
Hi everyone! I have a couple sketch challenge cards to share today. This first card uses Mercy's Tuesday sketch #35 and Verve's new coffee set, Delightful and Delicious.
I thought I would show you a pic of my crafting area after I made this card. It took me FOREVER! Seriously, all night. Coffee? Tea? Which color? Where to place the cups on the image panel? Look at this---->
I tried lots of ribbons, stamped and cut out the cups colored in various colors. I don't know if you can see, but when I am stumped on how to arrange images on a panel, I trace it out with a pencil on scratch paper and practise stamping stuff on it (on the lower right corner of stuff).
Soooo, here's how the card ended up! I like how it turned out. I used some of the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird. YUMMY!
AND I was just reading my girl Jodi's blog and she mentioned her new obsession is Cosmo Cricket - well, ME TOO! LOVE this stuff! I think the color palette with Early Bird are perfect for coffee/tea/kitchen type cards!
I stamped the sentiments and cup in SU Chocolate Chip. I have found that I can use Copic markers with SU dye ink. Cool!!
This next card is part of the week long celebration of sketches going on at the MojoMonday sketch blog. This one is MojoMaria turned on it's side. I am still a bit iffy on this -specifically my horizonal pattern paper choice, but it's glued down now, so I guess it stays!
The cutie image is Miss Ayna Dressy from The Greeting Farm. I colored her with copic markers with some light sponging and used some more of my Basic Grey Lemonade paper. The bottom panel was punched with the Upper Crest border punch (another one of my current obsessions).
Oh and while I was snapping a picture of my stamping area, I took one of my Copic Marker storage. I use one of the Desk Organizer Cube pieces from Making Memories. Instead of using the 2 organizer baskets that came with it, I put in 2 clear bookends from IKEA and just slide my markers right in on their sides. I have them separated into 3 color categories. I can fit SOOO MANY using this method. I think I could actually fit every single Copic marker in this cube (I WISH I had every single one!)!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
