Dance Like No One Is Watching

This is my favorite card that I have made (at least for now!) I used the sketch from the Midnight Magic Sketch Challenge #14. I combined this with the challenge from Copic Buzz Challenge to use an image from Mo's Digital Stamps I saw this image of Mummu and fell in love with the joy of this grandmother. My favorite detail that I added was the touch of antique lace peeking out of her skirt. I really enjoyed working with this image!

Cuttlebug Challenge 43 - Digi Stamps

Over at Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot, they had a treat for us this week! Everyone who left a comment was given a digital stamp created by MlamarreDesigns. It was then the challenge to use the digi stamp for this week's project. I got to use several new products, my Martha Stewart loopy border and corner punch, and my new Flourished Frame folder.

First try at Copics!

Seeing everyone's great blogs and all of the wonderful artwork done with copic markers, I had to try my hand. I obviously have a lot to learn (and I have pretty limited color ranges), but it is so great to see so many tutorials online to help learn to use these great markers. I made this card for two challenges. The first was for Challenge 9 at Copic Creations, which was coloring eyes with copic markers. The next was for the Copic Buzz and the challenge was to shade clothing (I guess a grass skirt counts!) I have a long way to go, but I can tell this is going to be really fun!
