Ahhhh relaxing by the lake - Gone Fishing

Hi all :)

Andrea here with a card I made for my nephews 23rd birthday, I think he will love the idea of relaxing by the river with a fishing rod in hand.

I was colouring this image at a girlfriends house and packed up to go home without listing the markers I used sorry.

I love this stamp, the men in my life seem to love their trucks (Utes) and fishing so I'm sure it will be used many many times :)

Thanks for stopping by

Hi and Welcome to DoveArt Studios,
Dorinda here today with this gorgeous Beaver

Tree: E50, 77,71
G24, 28

Angelic Thoughts

Hi all, Dorinda here today with my inspiration.

As Christmas draws near, we begin to really think about our blessings; those we hold dear,
helping others, even having a home.
I'd like to think I appreciate my blessings year round.
I am truly blessed with my family and friends.

So, today I'd like to share a little Angelic Fairy with you.

This is DoveArt Studios, Fairy Ella.
She is so fragile and precious.

I hope she adds a little blessing to your day.

Big Hugs,

Dreams Do Come True

Hello everyone, Nic here to show you one of the new stamps.

I have chosen to use the new Castle stamp.  I have created this card in honor of my daughter, Madison's, love for Disneyland.  It brings back special memories of her very first visit to Disneyland when she was a little girl and she was scared of all the characters but Cinderella.  I still remember the look of awe on Madison's face when she met Cinderella and the kindness that Cinderella showered upon her.  Her love for this magical place, that allows everyone to dream big dreams, keeps on growing and for that I am grateful!

Here is the picture that inspired my card...isn't it dreamy?!

Copic Colors Used:

Castle ~ T0, T1, T3, T5, T6
          B21, B23, B26
                    Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23
Greenery ~ G20 G21, G24
Pathway ~ W0, W1, W2, W4
Water ~ B21, B23, B26
Background ~ Y04, B23, B26, RV34

Supplies Used:
Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen
Liquid Gold Opaque Paint Marker by Deco Color
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive

To create this card, I first colored the Castle with Copics on Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover, 100lb. and then did some fussy cutting.  The background is created by using the airbrush machine with Copics on glossy cardstock and then spritzed with 91% alcohol in a Mini Mister.  I wanted to really give the Castle a lot of dimension, so I popped the castle up by using a double layer of foam tape.  For the finishing touches, I used my Big Shot to cut out the word, dream, from white cardstock and added some sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen; and I couldn't resist using these chipboard mini stars in three different sizes from Make It Crafty.  I first colored them gold with my Liquid Gold Opaque Paint Marker and added that extra sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen.

I am so thrilled how this card turned out and I hope it gives you inspiration to dream big dreams!!!
