Prickles Says Hello June 18, 2015

Okay, here’s my card for the From the Heart progressive challenge.  I must admit, when I first saw the title of the image, it had me confused… but I read it as “Pickles Says Hello” not “Prickles”.  However, regardless of the name, the image is a cute one!


For this card, I printed out the image on some Canson watercolor paper and colored it in using a combination of Spectrum Aqua and Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with these markers, and I love all the colors – particularly the bright ones.  Then, I used some rectangular dies to cut the image and background paper out.  I believe the background paper is from a DCWV paper pack; it is a denim design.  I used some green and white American Crafts baker’s twine for the bow, and I accented the banner, glasses, and butterfly using a clear Wink of Stella brush marker.


Summertime June 17, 2015

Well, with the amount of rain we’ve been getting it has been more like springtime…. but I’m not going to argue with that!  I sort of like not having to water the lawn.  On the other hand, the weeds have been growing like… weeds!  They have been crazy this year!

Anyhow, here is my card for the Imagine That digis by Kris progressive challenge.


What a great image – and a perfect one to kick off the summer weather that (I’m sure) is on the way.  For this card, I printed the image out on Canson watercolor paper and colored it using my Spectrum Aqua markers.  I did notice (after I’d taken the photo) that the popsicle in the middle of the cart is missing its stick, but I did draw one in before sending the card out.  The image is matted on and accented using some paper from my stash.  I added some yellow rhinestones to the corners of the card, too, for just a little bit of sparkle.
