Wicked Halloween!

Hello and happy Thursday to you.  Today I'm super excited to share a card using the new Ai Shakers set called Quivery Mini Shaker.  It's wicked cute and super fun. 

For my card background, I used the Marvy LePlume markers and randomly scribble on the watercolor palette.  Then I misted with water, placed the watercolor paper upside down and lift up the mixture of colors. 

I even created a scenery using a black watercolor markers, the quaint picket from the WC Series 8 set 2, and teeny tiny grass from the Foliage set 1.  Then a few more fun bats and pumpkins from the die cut which included with the stamp set.  And of course, can't forget about the mini wobbles, so fun!

Here is another look!  Got to love these guys!  I can't wait until Halloween!

Marvy LePlume markers used:  Steel blue, olive brown, brownish grey, brilliant yellow, african violet, sepia, black.

Copic markers used:  E43, E55, R000, R00, R20, W00, W0, W2, W4, V12, V15, Y15, YG00, YG13, YG21, YR04, YR07, YR12, YR16

Merry Chris-Mouse!

Hello friends and happy happy Monday!
I'm sharing a card using the new Chris-mouse Mini Shaker.  Isn't he is adorable?

I colored this little guy with Copic markers and for his outfit, I decided to do a little bit of paper piecing.  And I also used T1, T3, and T5 Copic markers to create some shading.  Then, I added a sentiment and outlined with a white gel pen.

And of course, I need a fun element, right?  How about an action wobble?  

Copic markers used:  R11, R37, T1, T3, T5, Y02, Y18, Y26, YR23

A field of funky awesome flowers!

Hello hello and happy Friday.  
I'm super excited to share a card that I created for 7 Kids College Fund.
I'm using the Caravelle Studio Cling Stamps called Strips & Lantern's Stemss.  When I first saw this stamp set, I was in love with the beautiful funky flower stems.  Immediately I wanted to create a field of funky flowers.  

And I did just that!   I started by creating the background with Tim Holtz distress paint in broken china, crushed olive, moved lawn, and salty ocean. 

 Then I added more colors by using the distress ink pad (using the same colors).  Then I stamped the beautiful lantern stems with Archival ink jet black.  

And I also stamped the flower strips stamps using Archival ink in Garden Patina randomly on the bottom half of the card to create some interest.  Then, I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in gathered twigs and seedless preserves.  I also added some butterflies by using Picket Fence distress ink pad & a blending tool from a stencil.  Next, I added some details by using a white gel pen and colored in some of the flowers.  I also added some Festive Fall Sequins mix along with some blings, and finished it up with splatter effects by using Prima color bloom mist in sunshine and lime wedge.

Snowy night with your BFFs!

Hello hello and happy Monday to you.
I know winter is still a little time away.  But I have been wanting to use the Snowflake Dies forever.  Since I can't wait any longer, hehe!  I decided it would be wonderful for the BFFs from the Bench set  to enjoy a beautiful snowy night, right?  

For the snowy background I used Color Burst, I started by misting the watercolor paper with water.  Then sprinkled the Color Burst and allowed it to do its magic.  I used a piece of vellum to tone down the color a bit.  I added some chunky embossing enamel to create some snow.

For the Girlfriends, I stamped them with Tombow markers on watercolor paper.  And using a damp brush, I softened the edges and colored them a bit.
