April Showers

Here is a card that I made for the Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge.

The challenge was to Dazzle Them. All pattern paper is from Fancy Pants Road Show Set and the cardstock is Bazzill. I layered 3 different prints and distressed and inked all edges. I added a border punch by MS but it is hard to see underneath everything. I added some flowers from Prima and tied a bow around the edge. I colored my adorable Tilda with Copics and here are the colors.

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11
Cheeks: R20
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E57
Clothing: Y00, Y02, Y04, Y18, R000, R00, R01, & E04, W0, W4
Puddle: C1, C3

Here is a peek at the inside.

Hope you enjoy and be sure to check out the Fussy & Fancy Challenge. This is just their 4th challenge so they are pretty new.

Thank you,

Think Spring

Finally, I got a couple of cards made today. It was very refreshing to just sit down and color. I have made this card for both the Just Magnolia and the Magnolia Down Under Challenges. You can check them out by clicking on them in my side bar.

I love the easel cards. There so much fun to decorate. Of course I colored everything with my Copics and the numbers are listed below. All papers are by Imaginisce Lucy Bird Collection. I inked all edges with Distress Ink and then sewed everything down. I used the border punch and the butterfly punch both by Martha and added some little rhinestones to the center of each flower. I put some Flower Soft on the bumble bee. You probably can't really tell in the photo. I then took a cream flower by Prima and used my Copic air gun to color the flower. I sat Tilda on the brick wall and layered it with some squares cut with the nesties. I then tied off a pink ribbon to hold the card up into the easel position.

Here is a list of the Copics:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, and R20 for cheeks.
Hair: E53, E55, E57, E59
Wall: C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
Shirt: Y13, Y15, Y17, Y19, R81, R85
Pants: G94, G97
Grass: G63, G67
Socks: YG17, YG 19

Thank you for being patient with me.
