Not Just a 'Pocket'

Hi, I'm back again :)

This time I'm sharing this fun 'thank you' card using the very versatile 'Pocket' stamp from DoveArt Studios.

This pocket could be used for males and females young or old because almost everyone has worn denim jeans at sometime in their lives, it can be used to hold a gift card or money or just a little note, for Birthdays or Christmas really the possibilities are endless.

I used four Copic Markers to colour this stamp - B34, 37, W3, 5. and a Gold Gel Pen for the stitches. 

I made the little 'Levi's' tag using some scrap red card, a white opaque pen and a small circle punch. 

The 'Cheers' die is from Lawn Fawn, The studs are split pins I have had for awhile and can't remember where they are from sorry. 

I stamped the 'Pocket'  twice colouring the bottom one around the pocket then only colouring the pocket on the other, I then hand cut the coloured pocket and cut the word die out, then cut six extra 'cheers' words to use to build up the word finishing with the coloured word for this fun effect. 

Thanks for stopping by

Ahhh Beach Serenity

Hello friends :)

Today I have coloured up this beautiful scene from DoveArt Studios, I stamped it 5 times so I could fussy cut the chair so it would stand out, at that stage I really didn't know how this card would turn out, maybe another sunny beach scene? But then I decided the 'sun' will be a 'moon' and I'll create a night scene with a beautiful full moon. I'm happy with how it turn out, I hope you like it :)

I coloured this stamped image with Copic Markers - Sky - B69, 66, 63, 60. Water - BV04, B34, 60. Sand - E31, 34, B66. Timber & Chair - E71, 74, 77, 79. Towel & Umbrella - BG11, 13, 15, 18. Sail Boat - E47, BV23, 25, 29. Seagull - C1, 2, 3, W2, YR02. Frame - N7.

Thanks for stopping by

Sail Away

Doesn't a night sail sound wonderful?
I just learned how to do this night sky and
 thought it would be fun to try and incorporate that into this image with a moon
it was tricky to get the "glow" but in the end, I really love this.

Using Sailboat
The Copic colors I've used on the Boat are my fav red combo
add a bit of E57,44 to just get some definition.
After all, it's night time :D
Wanna know how I did the sky?
