I’m used to using glossy accents to highlight eyes or make balloons shiny and things on that scale. I had never thought of using thin lines of it to create rain or water ripples though.
This was another one of those cards where the real challenge was coming up with a layout that did justice to the colouring. The flower blocks strip was created during one of the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenges, way back in March 2015, and had been sitting in my PHD (projects half done) box since then.
It’s just as well I got all caught up with the backlog of card write-ups otherwise I would be really stressing about the stack of cards that are waiting to be blogged right now. But that’s what happens when I take a class with Online Card Classes — so many fun ideas that just have to be turned into cards!
This was made for my neighbour. Some people like bunnies, some people like cats or dogs, and some people, like my neighbour, love meerkats. In fact, making this card for her was the main reason for picking up this stamp set.
This pencil-coloured unicorn Mae had been sitting around for almost a year before finally being put on a card as part of my brief blitz on my PHD (projects half done) box.
These baby dragons are just too adorable. They were created as homework for the critters lesson in a Copic course, but it wasn’t fair to leave them languishing in my PHD box for too long. So I created a blended Distress ink background for them (love that wilted violet) and sat them on a sentiment banner.
The card was made on 24th July: day 20 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge.
This little spidey is just sooooo cute! I didn’t have a plan for him when I coloured him, but I quickly realised that he would be perfect as the centrepiece of a birthday card for a friend of ours.
