Good evening - finishing up the Easter cards, only have one more to make... for DH. Here's the one sent today to the daughter, and it's from a Sparkle n Sprinkle Bunnies & Bows rubber set purchased some years ago.
This was very easy to color with copics. Used cool grays, with just a slight touch of BG0000 over the gray...only at the edges to create some shadows. Diamond Stickles were added on the tutu and spread with my finger. Had already used WoS, but that didn't really shine quite as much as I wanted.
- die cut with a S/B Deckled Oval - which has been retired evidently. Edged with Victorian Velvet while still in the die, lightly smoothed BG0000 around to create a background, and a bit of gray under her feet to ground the image.
- Sue Wilson Greek Collection Kefalonia die used to make the dark rose pink mat from glittered paper (inner area was removed to use another time.)
- Hot Pink card base (found in the sorting, and it only needed to be scored)...was covered with an embossed vellum piece - tones down the hot pink nicely (EF Dots folder for the vellum). Added borders top & bottom from a snippet that had been embossed, and part of the piece had cut too deeply. The top & bottom were fine, so trimmed off and created borders, as the vellum wasn't just quite long enough at the bottom edge! LOL.
When DD was a pre-teen, everything had to be pink. Then it went to purple...This must be something all teenage girls go through. She's outgrown that phase - don't think she's got anything pink or purple these days.
Added a new card to the Cards by Friends page, and will be adding another pretty one that came in today. Hope you have time to check it out. In the meantime, still working on the re-organization - some days I think I'm making progress. Some days methinks I'm only moving stuff from here to there. But as the saying goes, it 'keeps me off the streets & outta the bars'. Any of you ever heard that before???
Have a great day! Come back when you can, and I'll promise to do the same. Hugs & Prayers to those in need of same.
