This first card was made for my co-worker's birthday. Belatedly, since her special day fell shortly after Christmas and I was still recovering from holiday overload. She has horses so I knew that this image from Saturated Canary was perfect. She's called Equestrian Girl and I've colored her up with Copics and matted her with the Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders). Papers are Creative Imaginations - These Boots from the Debbie Mumm Buckaroo Collection. I added a Tim Holtz metal buckle, some flowers, and a few pearls. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and is cut with the Classic Circles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).
Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E31, E50, E53, Y28, Y32, Y35, YR02, YR04, YR07, G09, B02, R20, R32, R81, R83
The next two creations were a custom order. These were a bit of a challenge for me because I don't practice my darker skin tones as often as I should, but in the end I was happy with how they turned out. For the birthday card I used another Saturated Canary image. This is one of Krista's older ones. Suzy Hollywood. I colored her with Copics and cut her using the Lacy Ovals Nestabilities (Spellbinders). Papers are My Mind's Eye. I added a flower, rhinestones, a Tim Holtz metal corner, and the recipient's name using glitter chipboard letters. The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set called You Take The Cake. Sketch is Sketchy Colors (#239).
Copics used: E23, E25, E31, E33, E35, E37, E51, E53, E55, R32, R37, R39, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, BG10, BG72
And this Valentine's Day card features The East Wind's Lucy Loo Mirrorball Earring. She is also colored with Copics and then I cut and matted her with the Resplendent Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders). Papers are Basic Grey - True Love. I had fun embellishing this one! I added a wax seal and a flair sticker that match the paper collection plus seam binding, flowers, pearls, and a Tim Holtz metal ornate frame. The banner is cut with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die and I added gold glitter stickers to spell the recipient's name and "LV" (for Louis Vuitton). The sentiment is from Hero Arts. My layout is based on Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2's "blast from the past" sketch posted December 31st, but unfortunately I missed the link up deadline.
Copics used: E23, E25, E27, E31, E33, E35, E37, E53, R27, R29, R32, R37, R39, R89, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8
