How The Wild {East} Wind Blows

Hey there!  How are things where you are?  We were lucky and dodged a Spring snowstorm today!  But man, the WINDS!  They are just whipping around out there!  They aren't the only wild wind on my mind today, though...  I have a card to share with you featuring an image from The East Wind.  I just recently discovered the fantastic artist behind these images, Kyra Eunkyo Kim, aka Unky!  Of course I went shopping in The East Wind etsy store immediately and treated myself to a few images.  Be sure to visit the blog and Facebook group as well! 

I had a little time to color and craft so I made a card for a co-worker who was recently out for surgery.  She loves to read so I selected Lucy Loo Bookaholic.  I had a blast coloring that hair!  She is colored with Copics, of course, and cut using Long Rectangles Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  Sketch is from Sketch Saturday (#302).  Papers are Brenda Walton Madeline by K&Company.  I added some Tim Holtz hardware (corners, label pulls, mini gears) and a bit of seam binding.  But my favorite embellishment is the clock I created using My Favorite Things Time Pieces Die-namics and Timeless stamp set!  The sentiment is also from My Favorite Things (a set called Bunny Slippers).


I am going to keep this post brief because I actually printed oodles of images recently so I had better get some more coloring done!  Check back this weekend, though, as I know I'll have several new cards to show off by then!

Thanks for stopping in and enjoy the second half of your week!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E31, E34, Y28, Y35, N0, N2. N4, N6, N8, YG03, YG11, BG10, B06, R32, R35, R39).
