ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE!

 

Don’t you love the way I just randomly drop off the face of the earth and don’t post on my blog?  Haha!  Funny, I guess.  I hope I am not the only person on earth whose schedule just blows up out of nowhere during which crafting time becomes scarce.

At any rate, here is a little something I created for the Make It Monday #341 Color Wheel challenge.

ENCG-004-01

I suppose I still utilized the “wheel” shape with my Mega Mehndi Medallion stamp, coloring it with some bright Copic markers.  Not quite a color wheel in its literal sense, but hopefully still in the same vein.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Wedding / Attachment

I HAVE A FEW CRAFT SUPPLIES

Before I moved my craft room upstairs or whenever we were on vacations or at In-Law parties, my preferred method of occupying myself creatively was to color with my Copic markers.  I would stamp batches and batches of images and just color away.  That process, over the course of a few years, has left me with a large stash of colored images, just waiting to be transformed into card embellishments.  As I have begun crafting again over the last 2 months in my new and nicely-organized craft room, I have had the opportunity to utilize many of those images.

As an aside here, I do post most of my cards on Pinterest even though I have not been blogging.  So if you’d like to see any of them from the past little while, please click on the Pinterest button in the sidebar. ——————————————————->>>>

Here is a card using one of those images, a cake from the Dream Wedding stamp set by Power Poppy Stamps:

I will not be listing all of the supplies used on my cards, but you are welcome to email or comment if you’d like to know about a particular supply, and I will be happy to reply.

I figured this card would fit the Inkspirational Challenges #153 word theme of “Attachment,” since weddings generally are in the business of attaching people.

A Butterfly

It is handy to have a stash of previously colored images – they whip up into a card fairly quickly!  Here is yet another of my pre-colored images that made it onto a card:

ToY-014-01It cannot really be seen, but the background behind the butterfly is embossed in a woodgrain pattern.  And the also-barely-visible thread there is gold and sparkly.

A Sunflower, Just Because

Another card with a hand-colored image that has been patiently waiting in my files for oh so long:

MISC-005-01It is always so fulfilling to finally use the images I’ve colored on a card – you know, like, now my life is complete.  Or something.

Sweet Strawberry

Another card with coloring – this one using an image that I colored loooooooong ago, back when I first began experimenting with Copic markers.  The poor thing has been sitting in my files since about late 2012, oh my!  I think this is what you might call ‘closure.’  Haha!

TY-019-01A little strip of Pure Poppy gingham DP on the side, some embossed polka-dots in the background (barely visible!), and some sweet, sweet hand-colored strawberries – done!

Bright and Bold

I love bright and bold color combos, which may surprise you a little.  I don’t often use them, because I’m never sure of my ability to get them on a card in appropriate balance.  But I do love them.

Here is a little something I put together with a couple of bright and bold colors:

TY-015-01The red panel is the result of my attempt at sponging a background.  The word die cut is the result of my attempt at blending Copic markers to achieve the ombre effect, which I think is harder than it sounds with Copic markers!

TY-015-4in1This is one of my favorite cards.

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉

Paper/Cardstock:  White (Xpedx); Black & White Striped DP (KHDigi on Etsy)

Speaking of Coloring Images, Though…

There is something so fun and relaxing about sitting down with my Copic markers and some images to color.  I love to just sit and color!

One thing I have avoided, though, is coloring images of people.  I tend to think, “If I can’t make it look realistic at all, why bother!”  So, I obviously haven’t bothered at all.  Haha!

I did finally take out my MFT Pure Innocence image to practice coloring people features, then I included it on this card:

BDAY-038-01What do you think?  Not too bad, for one of my first attempts?

Well, anyway, it was fun to color.  And I look forward to trying more in the future.
