Back On Your Feet

Where did the month of February go???  It's hard to believe that the month is almost over and my card today is my last post for this month's Anything Goes challenge at One Crazy Stamper.

My card features another adorable image from our sponsor this month HIGH HOPES and is entitled Smiling Shelby and can be found here.  I colored the image with Copics, then fussy cut it out and layered it over some scraps of Bo Bunny paper.  The sentiment is from my stash.

Sunshine Lollipops

 The brutal winter weather has returned to Alberta today, and the long range forecast is not looking that great, so today's card features a bright summery image to remind us all that the warmer weather is coming!!

My image is the Mo Manning image Brady and Chloe, that I have printed on watercolor paper, and then painted with Distress Inks reinkers from Ranger.  The dp's are from Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye, and the sentiment is from my stash.

Imagine the Possibilities

Time to showcase another card using Rangers Distress Inks to paint the image.  I really love the look of the water coloring technique and really should use it more often.

After the Mo Manning image was colored,  I fussy cut it and popped it up on a sheet of Prima Engraver paper.  The sentiment is an older stamp from Heidi Swapp,  that was stamped and embossed with Rangers Distress embossing powder.

Always and Forever

It's a beautiful sunny day here in Alberta - just wish the gale force winds would disappear!  I just let my two foster dogs out in the yard, and I think the little one thought she was going to be blown away!

My card today has a gorgeous wedding image from Lili of the Valley, that I have colored with Copics, then matted and placed on designer paper from Creative Imaginations.  Black pearls made with a Viva Décor pearl pen and stickles add dimension to the image.

Bundle of Blessings

Just before Christmas Lili of the Valley came out with some beautiful new images featuring babies, and I just couldn't resist buying one or two, or maybe six of the newbies!

Off to Great Places

Time to post another card that I actually completed last year, but never got around to actually showing here on my blog.  This image is a wonderful digital available from Saturated Canary.

The image was stamped on watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then painted with Distress inks.  After the coloring was completed, I used the Wonky Squares spellbinders dies to cut both the image and the patterned paper that are on the front of the card.  The tassel was made with embroidery thread to add a touch of dimension to the card.  Dp is from Moxie.
