Birthday Moths

Birthday in Black and White

Birthday Moths

Hi there!! My card today features another one of Ching Chou Kuik’s beautiful images - Come Softly.  It’s been a long time since I did anything in the “no-lines” technique, so I figured I’d have a go with this one :)  I colored it in a monochrome palette with my SN markers, and added a few glitter highlights.  I looked high, low and sideways for the “right” background paper, and just wasn’t happy with any of my thousands and thousands of design sheets!! So, I took the moth from the image and made my own :)  Some black velvet flourishes with silver touches, black and white flowers that i stacked and centered with rhinestone brads, a sparkly ribbon bow, and a stamped sentiment finish this card off :)

Hi there :)  A friend of mine finally went in for her long awaited knee surgery, so I had to make a special card for her.  Her favorite color is orange, and fave flowers are gerbera daisies.  I’ve had this stamp set from Inkadinkadoo for a looooong time, and have never used it, so figured it would be perfect for this occasion!  I also thought it would be perfect to make a shaker card with, as I haven’t made one for ages, and it would give her something to play with while she recuperated on her couch, lol.  I used the bigger daisy from the set to stamp a background, and the frame to make the shaker part.  I colored everything in with my Prismacolor pencils, then assembled it, using a computer generated sentiment, some gel pen accents, a piece of turquoise ribbon, and some sequins and pearls for the shaker part.  She loved it, calling it her get well fidget spinner, lol.  I’m happy to say that she is a quick healer, and is moving around already :)

Hi there!! I can’t believe how fast the summer is flying by! August already, and I haven’t done half the summer stuff I was hoping to do!  It’s also time for another ATG challenge over at Creative Fingers. We have two amazing sponsors for our month long challenge (we’re on summer schedule). They are:

As always, my teammates have creations that are absolutely stunning, so be sure to stop by and be inspired :)

I was given Leilani by Connie Fong to work with. What a beautiful image, and so much fun to color with my SN markers!  It was screaming “pink!!” at me, so what could I do, but comply? :)  I found some pretty coordinating papers and a doily, and kept arranging them until I was happy.  Then, I went into my flower jar and found some roses to place on top of the pink bow I had put in the corner.  I edged one of the roses in pink, because it was too white, and spritzed the smaller ones with some pearly mist to give them shimmer.  Some pearls, a sentiment and a few gold dragonfly embellishments finished this card off in a way I was very happy with :)
