More of the greys and blues here. With a bit of "sunshiney" brightness in the butterfly. Which also symbolizes the renewal of the earth with all the rain. We did a lot of reading, thus the printed patterned paper. I pulled out a scrapbook kit that I have from Cocoa Daisy and went to town with it. I made two of these. (don't know why I didn't make four. you know, one for each of the sets I am making for Christmas. just happened I guess????)
And this last one was made with bright cheery colors. I love this little monster and decided it was time to ink him up. I stamped him on the printed paper because we were all reading like monsters this past few days. hehehe You can't really tell, but the hearts are punched out of velvet ribbon, cuz I figured that a monster would have a fuzzy heart. This little guy is paper pieced. I stamped him once on the printed patterned paper, once on the blue background square and once on white cardstock. Then cut out the horns, his body and his hands. I used my Copic markers for the first time on this card. (before I cut) Kind of chicken of me, since the area to color is so very tiny. But I have to say that I am HOOKED on these markers. Even the little bit I did was SO smotth and easy. His horns are shaded. I have never done shaded before. I am going to play more tomorrow, if I can get away with it. I only made this one. I don't think that the recipients of the greeting cards would really use this one. I could be wrong. But, we will never find out.
(Supplies used are so darned varied that I hesitate to mention any of them. If you want to know a specific item, just leave a comment and I will try to figure it out. I am not really good at keeping track of what I use. I have no desire to be published or chosen for a design team, so it isn't a priority for me. Maybe in the future, but not today.)
NOW get out there and get inspired naturally.
(not necessarily "naturally", it's up to you though)
