Pansy Sprite

I really tried to stretch my coloring on this super cute image, Pansy Sprite, from Mitzi Sato-Wiuff on her Aurora Wings Blog. She offered the Pansy Sprite free while her challenge was on-going. Unfortunately, I could not color it during the challenge as I was off traveling. But the more I looked at it, and pictures of pansies online, I thought I could use it for my Mother's Day card. So, I used a picture of a pansy I found and tried to color the image as close as I could. I hope you like my card!

I did use some very pretty flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and diecut using my Cameo.
Have a great day and thank you for looking!

Butterfly Princess

I keep pushing myself to try new things and the messier they are, the more fun! I needed a card for my SIL's birthday, so I chose one of Heather Valentin's Lacy Sunshine images called Butterfly Princess. She is so pretty, and I so wanted her to be perfect. Then, because she is sitting, I didn't want just a plain floor or something under her, so I made a background using one of the techniques from Alyce Keegan's website, Kit and Clowder. If you are looking to learn to color images with markers or pencils, this is the place to go - she even has a couple of FREE classes to get you started! So, here is my card using the beautiful Butterfly Princess and the Copic marker colors I used to color her.

Kissed By An Angel

I found the cutest image for an Anniversary card, Kissed By An Angel by Conie Fong. It is so cute! My nephew's anniversary is this month, so I thought I would use this image. It turned out so cute that I think I'll use it for all my Anniversary cards this year (4!). I coloring the image with Copic markers and used Distress Ink to give a little shading for the sky. I know I used A LOT of colors for my tree branch, but I have to tell you, using a little of each gives you an amazing wood grain. Try them!

Hummingbird n Morning Glory Flowers

Well this month's Progressive Freebie Challenge at Outlawz Challenges offered a pretty digi with a hummingbird. The digi is an image by Createful Heart, if you want to pick it up for yourself. So I thought I would try blending some colors a little bit. Then I thought I would try cutting it out with my Cameo. Whew! I set a HUGE challenge out for myself on this! But I actually finished it ahead of the end of the month, so WooHoo! Here is the card I finished and the Copic colors I used.
