Valentines

Well it has been a long time since I have posted on this blog!  I just don't find the time now that I work.  I was inside all weekend due to the impending ice storm.  I decided to put my time to good use and get some valentines done. I love to craft on rainy days.

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.
