Almost 4 months between posts………EEK!!! With Missy & I both getting a child (young adult) ready for college, jewelry and card making have definitely been on the back burner. After three weeks, everyone is settled in. Slowly (VERY slowly) the moms are getting adjusted. I finally sat down last weekend with my copic markers! I knew there were some special birthdays coming up, so I thought I better get a jump on some cards. Sooooo, as I share the first card….don’t judge! It’s all in good fun! I had seen this freebie Saturated Canary image from the ever so popular Fifty Shades of Grey book series. I thought it would be so fun & easy to color, but honestly…..who are you going to give THIS to? Didn’t seem like the best card to send my 95 year old granddad…tee hee!!!! A couple of weeks ago, one of the girls I work with was reading a book that she could NOT put down. When I realized it was the second book in the “Grey” series, I knew who I could send the card to. Soooo…..I’m hoping I don’t offend anyone, as it is all in good fun!
Okay…..I’ve GOT to offset this with something a little lighter! My friend, Audra is celebrating a birthday. I found this sweet Saturated Canary image, also a freebie, and decided to color it up for Audra’s special day!
This cutie is colored with copics: Hair- E25, 31, 50. Skirt-E44, 43, 42, 41, 40. Shirt- E42, 41, 40/BG 13, 11, 10. Boots- V17, 15, 12/E59, 55, 53. The clouds are made with a homemade template and Tim Holtz ink, sponged.
