I'll try to get most of the cards posted that I got done today. I'm being lazy and using my new iPhone to capture these images. I know it's not quite the quality as when I use my camera with the proper lighting and all, but I am rarely here during daylight hours and I don't want to pull out my tent and lights etc. I'm just going to make this work ha ha.
The first card I created is a digital image from the blog Fred She Said.
This is a pretty old image called Nolan's Monster.
The digital image is NOT a valentine. It is just the monster, holding a stick with the leaf on it. I try to think outside the box when I get ready to make a card. I feel like I get more bang for my buck.
Here's how I made my card. I used an embossing folder to create the heart background. After I colored and cut out the monster, I positioned him on the card so that it looks like his stick is at the bottom of one of the background hearts. I colored in that heart with my R27 Copic marker, I then added a bit of clear Wink of Stella and some Diamond Glaze on top of the heart to give it a shimmer, like a balloon. I added some googly eyes to the monster to make him extra cute. Copic colors used for the monster are: B23, B21, B32, YG05, YG23 & YG25, BV20 & BV23. I used my white Prismacolor pencil to highlight some of the areas and to add some little dots to the monster. I think he turned out pretty cute! It's been a while since I've had to time to color, so I definitely feel out of practice but I hope you enjoyed what you saw here today. Maybe I'll have more time to craft in 2017.
I appreciate you visiting my blog. Let me know if you have any questions. I'd love to hear from you.
I hope you have an amazing day.
