Cala Lillies and Watercolor Markers

I needed to create a sympathy card for a friend at work and I thought Cala Lillies would be perfect.  I had a stamp from Stamplorations that I hadn't used yet so I pulled it out.

Here is the card:



Check out my video showing you step by step how I did it.  I used Tombow markers for this card, but you can use any watercolor markers or pencils.


Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.

Copic Coloring in The Craft Room

I have started a youtube series that I call My Craft Room To Do List.  I have so many things on my list that I need to get done and I thought I would take you along with me as I tackle these tasks.

I like multiple types of crafting so you may not be interested in some.  If you are a card maker - then you might enjoy today's card where I color a digital image with Copic Markers.



The digi image is from justME digital stamps and you can join the TIC TAC TOE challenge on the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.

TIC TAC TOE Card Recipe

I printed the digi image out on white card stock along with the sentiment.  I colored this cute little giraffe with Copic Markers, added a yellow mat along with a piece of giraffe print ribbon.  I also inked the outside edges of the white card stock to give it a more finished look.  I will be putting a video up on my youtube channel showing how I colored the image.

My youtube channel is here if you want to see some of my craft room projects.

Thank You Cards Challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids

It's the 1st Saturday of the month and that means it is time for another challenge at the Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge Blog.  The theme for this challenge is Thank You Cards or Anything Goes 4 Kids.  This challenge no longer has sponsors so you will be participating for pride not prize.

Send a Smile 4 Kids charity is dedicated to collecting and distributing handmade cards to children who are inpatient at Children's Hospitals.  Please send us your handmade kids' cards for holidays, birthdays, and everyday cheer.  Help us put a smile on our kids' faces.

Thank You Cards 4 Kids Recipe

I found this background stamp in my stash and decided it must be used.  It was a little more coloring than I wanted to do, but I think the black and white is just beautiful.  I added a sentiment die cut that I cut out 3 times and layered one on top of the other.  Enamel dots from Doodlebug added some more color.  The mat in the background pulls the focus to the sentiment too.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Consider entering our challenge and donating your hand made cards to our great charity.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.
