Racy




The image I used for this week's challenge at Inspiration Destination is quite out of the ordinary for me.  One of our new sponsor's is Kenny K.  I decided to go for one of his more risque images, Carmen Electrafying, just to do something totally different.  I think I completely shocked my husband when he saw it.  I asked him what he thought and he didn't really answer.  I assumed he didn't like it.  Actually, he asked me if I could make him a life-size one.  I don't think so!  It was fun to make this card, though.  This is the first time I tried blue highlights for the hair.  I ended up covering a bit too much of it up when I went back to touch up the black.  Oh well, next time. 

The digital papers are from Po and Po Digital on Etsy.  I colored the image with Copics.  The race flags were cut with the Silhouette.  I am using the Silhouette more and more to decorate cards.

Copics:  B21, B24, B27, C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7,

Carousel Zebra



This week at Inspiration Destination we have three sponsors.  I decided on Carousel Zebra Set by Doodle Pantry.  They had quite a good selection of carousel images.  The set comes with matching papers in quite a few solids and prints along with many variations of the zebra and sentiments, too.  I used one of the pre-colored images in the set, but I went over the stripes with a Copic marker.  My printer doesn't print a deep enough black.  The  images always appear a bit faded so I like to darken them.  I added a banner cut with the Silhouette.

January Christmas Card Stash


This is my favorite Santa image.  It's by Sherri Baldy.  I colored him with Copics.


 This stamp is by PSX.  This image was also colored with Copics.


 










These cards were cut with the Silhouette.
The digital papers are from Cartabella.




My goal this year is to make one card a week to avoid the Christmas rush. 
 Also, to make somewhat flatter cards that are easier to mail.

My Favorite Five of 2014

                                     

I have been doing this for the past few years.  It's interesting to look back.  I had forgotten about quite a few of the cards.   What a surprise, they're all animals!

Christmas Carousel Horse


I must apologize that I haven't been visiting blogs lately.  I have been in a lot of pain with arthritis since the weather has gotten colder.  I wasn't allowed to take anything for pain for a while because of my kidneys.  They are apparently normal again and the doctor gave the okay to take an anti-inflammatory.  Thanks goodness.

Anyways, this past Christmas I sent quite a few purchased cards which I prefer not to do.  This year I'm going to try to finish one per week so I'll have plenty when I need them.

This image I found on Deviant Art, it's by Heather Luciana.  She gives permission to use her lineart as long as she is given credit.  Here is a link to the image:  http://www.deviantart.com/art/Carousel-Lineart-124395897

I colored it with Copic markers.

Lucas' Halloween Costume


I made Lucas a Brobee (from Yo Gabba Gabba) costume for Halloween.  He didn't like the sleeves in the first pic so we rolled them up.  Gotta keep a two year old happy!  Katie had seen the costume on Pinterest.  Someone had made it from a hoodie and pants pattern.  The pattern was discontinued, but I was able to find it on Ebay.  So glad I did.  I just winged the face and horns.

Angel and Baby



I'm trying to get started on mu Christmas cards, so that may be all you see for a while.  This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. I think I bought it last year, but never used it.   I colored it with Copics.  I cleaned my desk off before I listed them.  Oh, well!  I used a die set from Spellbinders.  Someday, I will go and find out what each set is.  I didn't save any paperwork for them.  I realized after I photographed the card that I forgot to color the lips.  They are colored now, but I don't feel like photographing again.  I spend so much time focusing on the skin that I forget the lips quite often.  I actually finished the last two cards inside and out.  
I'm on a roll!
