Tombo Watercolor Markers/Digi Kit/Copic Markers

Hello Friends, How are you today? Have you ever flown a kite? I don't know why I wanted to turn this adorable flying hedgie into an kite with a string? Maybe because I want to give away the guy on the bike called "A Thorney Affair"?

I love Kites
This little guy is a "Christmas" stamp but, he's so incredibly versatile!
LEAVE A COMMENT and I will choose a winner for "a thorney affair" stamp next week.

I love Kites

Both of these stamps just scream happy to me. I used Tombo watercolor markers on the "Hedgehopper" and the bows on the string . For the bows I drew figure eights with a marker on white paper, colored them and cut them out. The critter on the bike I used Copic markers. The lovely papers are from Jen Martakis's digikit here.

I love Kites

Embroidery floss works wonderful as my kite string. I jazzed up the hopper plane on the tail with a lightening blot.

I love Kites

Do you recognize this bike from Penny Black. Look in the supply list below to see if you can spot it.
Other cards I designed with "A Thorney Affair" you can see here and  here .
Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Kathy

two monochromatic cards

Hello again, How are you all?  I am dying to know what you think of these cards? These are the two cards that you will find on the Penny Black BLOG that fall into our "monochromatic" theme. I couldn't stop at one and I think it's really fun to see the same image colored and dotted differently.

I finished off the inside of this card so if you are interested please scroll down.

These birds are really so much fun to color with any medium or you can just use distress ink to "color" them.  Both cards were colored with Copic markers and dotted with a white gel pen. The pink bird has some glittery accents that you can see below.

Worn lipstick distress ink added the perfect soft color to the heart. I felt like a pop of color was good to add to the inside of my monochromatic card and the inside shows you what the original stamp looks like.

Sorry but, I have to always give you an up close and personal look at my images. I drew some extra lines around the triangles on the tail. The gems were a gift and I accidentally threw away the packaging ... I don't remember where they are from.

This photo shows the glitter which is very easy to apply if you have a glue pen. For the cupcake liner I added some geometric lines. One more thing...Instead of cutting out the legs on the pink bird I drew some legs.

I can never stay it enough  A BIG THANK YOU for always stopping by. Have a great day! Kathy
P.S. There were a few questions about my Ranger color chart here.  I like to use the daubers for small areas and the distress tool for larger areas. If yo have more questions please email me so I can answer your personally. Thanks :)

My last assignment from SRM stickers

Hello Friends,
Posting this card comes with some sadness because my one year term with SRM stickers has expired. You can find their new DT announcement on SRM's blog here. Don't worry I will certainly continue to create cards with their products because I really do LOVE my SRM stickers and for many reasons. Working with Susan, Jenyfur and the DT at SRM was such a wonderful experience that I really cherished!! If you don't already "follow" SRM you just might want to so you don't miss a thing. The new team is amazing and will be sure to inspire you.

This is a simple card for my son's Birthday on 2/5. I can't believe that I have a son that is going to be NINETEEN years old! Yikes :)
Working with felt in the winter is warm & cozy and the best part is the felt cuts easily with my Cuttlebug.

The button is from an antique store and you can find the stickers here.  I'll be back with two monochromatic cards tomorrow that I am excited to share with you. See you then! Hugs, Kathy

Is it to early to think spring?

Hello Friends, Thank you for all of your sweet comments on my Ranger color chart in my last post! I'm one lucky gal for you to take time from your busy day to leave a comment *thank YOU*

I was in the mood to make card reminiscent of spring. It's so cold here and the forecasters are predicting snow. When I colored this butterfly with green copic markers I didn't blend the colors like I usually do. Instead if you look close you will see I colored a line of dark, a line of the medium color and next to that a lighter color. If you feel like you don't blend colors well I think this is a nice solution. I do like the effect.

This butterfly is such a great size and I love how dramatic the wings are. Both stamps are from Penny Black and you will find them in the supply list at the bottom of my post.  


Now for some news. Do you have an iphone? There is a really cool app from CCS stamps that I actually have on my phone and love it. Through sponsorship with Caardvarks I designed a card for the app that can only be seen on the app and will be featured on Jan 18th. Here is the link for the app. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Kathy
