No mojo for a few days.... Sorry.

I've been a bit out of it this past week.  Had insomnia Sat. and Sun. nights and was a total wreck on Monday so, no stamping.  Tuesday wasn't much better.  Or Wed. But yesterday and today I've been working hard!  I'm involved in a card front swap on Paper Wings of new images from the new catalog.  I can't show the cards until the swap is complete but I will give you a sneak peek!!

This image is from the set Sunflowers.  My favorite flower is the Sunflower so I "had" to buy this set!  I used Copic markers to color from Color Caboodle Sets A & F. I'm a novice using them but I really like how my shading turned out. I did have a couple areas on the leaves that I didn't get blended very good, though. I'm not "Copic certified" but maybe someday....  I stamped the image on White Caboodle card stock which really is great when using the Copic markers! Seems to minimize the bleeding through of the markers. I stamped the image with Noir PH ink and it did just fine. I hope to get the Momento Tuxedo Black and give it a try when I order next. It is the ink that's recommended when using Copic markers.  Oh, don't be shocked when you see the whole card. I didn't use the Stardust Clear Gel pen on it! LOL!

 Michelle, my downline in north Tucson, is having a beach theme tag swap.  I had to do this in a hurry and since Anchor To My Soul is the only "beachy" set I have I had to use it.

I used the Copics again for the grass, chair shading, and pink lemonade.  Can you see the sparkly ice? I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen on it and the sun.  And I made the clouds using a piece of torn paper, a piece of sponge, and my Moonlight White Brilliance pad.  I used my Wizard and a Sizzix scallop tag die to cut the tag from some blue card stock I have in my stash.

I want to welcome my new "followers"!  I appreciate all of you who follow or subscribe to my blog.  I hope my projects give you inspiration.
