Gorjuss Girls - MOJO83

After almost 2 weeks off from work, it always takes me a few days to get back into the swing of things. That getting up at 4:50 AM takes its toll for the first few days, so I have been out like a light by 9 not leaving room for anything else. When I saw the Mojo Monday Challenge, this card immediately came to mind. This card was made for my son for a Sweet 16 party that he was invited to this Saturday. He knows the amount of work that goes into card making. When he saw this, he said it was to nice that the girl would not appreciate it and would probably throw it out so he will save it for another Sweet 16 party. Boy, did that make me feel special.

Friday Sketch #48

Well, I kinda got my sketches mixed up this morning, guess I needed that second cup of coffee before I attempted to do 2 challenges at a time. This image was originally colored in for the new Magnolia challenge, well that was until I cut her out in the oval. It was then that I realized that it was the Friday Sketch that required the oval, and not the Magnolia one... So this is my take on the Friday Sketch challenge... Happy with how it turned out..
This is a close up of the flowers on the bottom. It is the first time I used my MS butterfly punch, and I love it... Thanks Tammi

Thanks for looking..Debbie

Swan Song

May is filled with tons of birthdays for us, there is a birthday a week beginning with my MIL's and ending with my BIL's and then of course Mother's Day. So to get things started especially since I am home this week, I decided to get a jump start on some of my cards.

I decided I didn't want to do anything cutesy since it was for my MIL's Birthday so out came the brayer again. First I stamped the swan in Versa Mark and Staz-On put on clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I then colored in her beak and gave her a little shadowing. I went over the entire image with my Versa Marker Pen carefully staying within the lines put on clear embossing powder and then heat embossed. Out came the brayer, and I brayered Bashful Blue at an angle at the top and bottom leaving a little white it the middle, and sponged more Bashful blue along the top and bottom to create a little depth. I then stamped in the Willows using Old Olive Ink and colored in the branches with my aqua painter using a lighter green Kiwi Kiss, I also used my Chocolate Chip SU Maker to outline some of the branches and my White Gel pen to highlight the willows. To create the horizon I used a Post-it-Note and sponged more Bashful Blue going across the post-it-note. Last but not least, I used my tree from stampscapes and placed the tree over the swan, and then sponged on Old Olive to create some of the leaves.

This week over at Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog, the challenge is to use Black and White with a splash of one color. For my spash of color, I choose Sage Shadow.

Friday Sketch #47 - Relaxing At the Lake

This is a retired set from Stampin Up... one of my favorite from the Seaside Series..this is one set I was sorry to see go to the retirement home. Once I decided to use this image, I took out my trusty ole brayer. I stamped the image in Versa Mark then Staz On and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored in with my copics, used my Versa Marker Pen and carefully stayed within the lines of the image. Again put on clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I then brayered Baja Breeze over the entire image, used a post it note to create a horizon and sponged Not Quite Navy. Stamped in the tree and grass. After I put the entire card together, my husband looked at the sketch and said "What does text mean?"... It was at that point I realized that I forgot to stamp a sentiment... So I took a deep breath and stamped in "just a note" because it was small enough to fit in that space...
