T.G.I.F! I will be heading back home tomorrow and have access to all my stamping stuff. You don't know how much you love your craft space until you work from a coffee table in a dark paneled den or don't have one of your go to tools with you. I forgot my scorpal and so it is very time consuming to get that perfect fold. Good thing I did remember the bone folder. I hope you al have a great weekend. In the mean time how about joining in on the Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge. This week's challenge is "Supplies, Supplies..." use punches, bling, and at least 2 TGF stamps.
My first card is a little attempt at a collage style of card. I used my nesties to create the sun and the white glittery swirl border is a sticker border. The scalloped red polka dot paper is from Sassafrass Lass, the stripes and sun paper is from Basic Grey June Bug. I stamped two clouds and a sentiment from The Greeting Farm's Far Away set and added some tiny twinkles to the sun and easy but bold and fun to look at card.
For my second card I used The Greeting Farm's Geisha Anya and sentiment from the Whimsical Wishes set. I colored this little beauty up before I looked to see what papers I had with me. I had no definite purples, but I did Find this piece of K&Company the was green one side yellow on the other with purple accents throughout...perfect. I used the square nestie to create the scallop border and circle. I think I spent an hour putting on all those little beads on the scallops and just happen to have bought the purple jewels on my trip. now I have mostly been using Caucasian skin coloring and this is my attempt at Asian. I fairly new to copics only about a year so if any of you experts out there know a good Asian color combo please let me know. This is also my first attempt at black hair. I have always admired Wicked Pixie's black hair coloring and she even did a tutorial for the Club Anya blog. My only problem...I don't have the same colors she does. So I just tried a bit of a feather technique to make the best of what I did have. I hope you enjoyed the inspirations for the challenges and can find some time this weekend to join in on the fun.
