A turtle for today, since I am slow in posting
I don't even know what to say today. I mean what can compare to being asked to be on a Design Team? I have been a card creating crazy woman. Well not just cards. Today I worked on several little box designs to be used for Valentine Treats. I think I only completed one. Not sure what was wrong with me, I just kept miscalculating my measurements. So frustrating to waste cs!!
So here is an update on how my Copic Coloring is coming along. I felt so clever combinging these stamp sets. The palm trees are from the retired SU "Do the Hula", the turtle is from the retired SU Hostess set "older & wiser", The string and triangles for the banner are PTI "celebration". I used one of the triangle banner flags as a birthday hat for my turtle and embellished it with a little star rhinestone to compliment the little stars on his "hat". I sponged the sky and the sand but I used Copics to color the trees, and the turtle. I also used them to draw my grass (freehand). I created the little birthday sign by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment and then cutting a rectangle and giving the top a bit of curve. The corners are also rounded..
I decided to snap a photo of what my craft table looked like while I was working on this card. No way I could tell you what colors I used. Might be easier to look in the boxes and say which ones I didn't use!! I am probably going to run out of ink faster than I am supposed to also. You would not believe how much ink I use trying to blend. One of the nice attributes for getting the GinaK Designs 120lb cardstock was that the Copics didn't soak through to the other side, therefore eliminating the need to stack or layer after coloring......... WELL, so far I have gone through everytime.......
That is all for me today, my hubby just got home from work and is heading to bed so I better go say hello......... See ya'll tomorrow for some Valentine FUN.
