You are a Catch

For that friend who is a "good catch" these fish will swim right into your heart.  Everyone needs a great "guy" card...or for a gal with a love of fishing.

Boat Dock

Nothing like a beautiful view of a lake scene from inside a cabin.  I created this card for an upcoming class in Arizona.  I made a little "dock" on the inside of the card to create this easel card.  This stamp is currently available through CCDesignsRubber Stamps as well as your local stamp stores.

"Tank You"

I had to copy the idea of doing a shaker card for this little fishy.  DT member Andrea made a super cute card and made it into a shaker card using beads....made me think of a fish in a fish tank.  I love how we can find inspiration from never know what is going to spark creativity!
I airbrushed the background on glossy card stock and then misted it with alcohol creating this fun look.  I then added vellum for the foliage.  FUN FACT - Did you know that if you get vellum wet with water it will curl?  I finished it off by adding microbeads and shells for the "sand".

Stamp:  Fantail Goldfish

I love the feel of the colors used on this card.  It almost feels vintage.  This stamp was from a past release but will never get old.  

The pebble with the flower is made by using a large "Dew Drop" or clear pebble and coloring a flower.  once you place it behind the pebble it makes it dimensional.  I like the way it turned out.

Fantail Goldfish Shaker Card

Hello, Andrea here today :)

I loved colouring this gorgeous 'Fantail Goldfish' from DoveArt Studios and thought it would be fun to make it into a shaker card, with tiny blue glass beads to represent the water so he can have a swim lol.

I coloured the goldfish with Copic's and Kaszazz Alcohol Markers.

Goldfish - Y21, 30, 35. A1205, A7406.
Bubbles - W1, 0.

Hey Good Lookin'

I thought I would create another male type card.  I tried to keep it clean and simple.  Using the Barrel Cactus Cluster i colored it using minimal colors and added a little chunky glass glitter to finish it off.

Be You

Do you ever want to just go sit in a quiet garden, listen to the sound of the buzzing bees and the fluttering wings of a passing bird.  This is the perfect stamp to take you there.  I love the feel of relaxation when using this stamp.
I used the new release Garden Chair and the sentiment is from Perfectly Beautiful sentiments both are now available at CCDesignsRubberSamps as well as your local scrapbooking store.  Links of some places to purchase under the "purchase" tab on the right.

Covered Bridge

Hello, Rhea here to share a little inspiration with

Here is the color palette I used.....

Robin On A Branch

Hello Rhea here to share the new release Robin on a Branch which you can find Here
This is one of my favorite images of all times and was actually quite easy to color.

The colors I used are:
Background: BG10, B0000, B41, 45, RV10, BV20 and a water brush filled with 91% alcohol.
After it was completely dried,  I used burlap and 91% alcohol and texturized it from the backside to push the color back to the front.  Kind of like a reverse.  When you use a lot of alcohol it pushes the color to the back of the paper.  To bring some of the shadows back to the front and add dimension,  I simply used my brush filled with alcohol and on the backside of the paper outlined some shadow areas.  This was fast and easy.  I feel it gave more of a water color effect to the background.
The Bird colors were:  Belly, E12, 15, 19 with W5 all done by using the side of the nib and kind of "smushing" the color in place.  When I was done I went back over with E13 to blend it together. Now for his feathers they were simply light strokes of W5, 7, 9
The flowers were colored with : RV 32, 34, E04 and RV10 for highlight areas.
Leaves Were G21, 24, 29 with YG 21 for the highlight areas. 

Hope you enjoyed!

Large Mouth Bass

I know I showed this for the release hop but i thought i would share some of the colors used.  I grabbed this netting at a large chain store and its just burlap used for decoration as a garland.  Adds that perfect touch to a card.

Sea Beauty

I am not a girly girl but I'm not a tomboy type either.
I can enjoy a good reptile now and again
but I prefer it from a nice safe distance.
However, I have loved this image since I've first seen it.
It was my goal last week, to finally color it up.
Honestly, I was afraid I wouldn't do it justice
I've seen Jenn Dove's and Delphine's versions
OMGosh, they are so awesome.
So, I persevered and I'm so happy I did.
I love my little fellow.
This is Sea turtle
Copics I've used:
turtle: E49, 29, 27, 44, 19, 13, 21, 50
