Tall Cactus

Howdy!  This is Barbara and for this card I've used DoveArt Studio's Tall Cactus rubber stamp.  I was looking for a soft male card for a graduation so I chose colors that were less bold.  Then I doodled around the stamp to give it a border and created a simple card.

Here are the Copic colors I used ... 

YG21, 23, 17, 93, 95, 97
G40, 24, 19
BG11, 32, 13
YR24, 23, Y32

Boat Harbor

Bonjour! This is Barbara and I've created a birthday card using DoveArt Studios'  Boat Harbor stamp. I wanted to color a little bit of water and these boats also allowed me to add in some colors.  The cheese cloth was used to symbolize a fishing net.  I still see cheese cloth but I think that's because I made it.  LOL

Here are the Copic markers that I used for coloring:

YG25, 63, 17, G28, 24, 40
B91, 02, 04, BG 34, 10, 11, 13
E23, 41, 27, 31
R29, 14, 05

For more information on the card you can visit my blog ForgottenScraps.

Country Shed

I set out to create a card but ended up with an envelop instead. This uses the Country Shed rubber stamp and it was stamped on balsa wood.  I planned to add a little color but the balsa wood started to disintegrate so I ditched that idea and went with a monochrome focus.

I did, however, manage to color the leaves with Copic colors E11, E23, E25 and YG93.

Hope you enjoy this tidbit of inspiration.

Tall Cactus

Hi everyone, it's Faye here today :)

Did you see the latest release? Wasn't it gorgeous? 

I got to have some fun with Tall Cactus...

I thought I'd challenge myself to colour the image with just seven colours. I enjoyed that so much, I wanted to see how different the same image, with the same colours would look on Kraft Cardstock...

So there you go! ;)

Copics Used... 
Green; YG06, G17, G05, YG67, W5 
Grounding/ Pot; W1, W3, W5

Thanks for stopping by... Have a great day.

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
