Ocean’s Gift

Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend had been a great one so far!  Today I wanted to share my latest Sugar Nellie creation with you.
 
I used a digital image from the Under The Sea collection. This is called Ocean’s Gift. I like working with digital images because I can resize them to fit the type of project that I am creating. In this case, I enlarged the image so that I had a 6x8” page to work on.

After coloring the image with Copic Markers, I masked it and then sponged on the background to create this underwater scene. I added some clear sequins, some stickles to the rock that she is holding and I was done! Here is a closer look at the sweet mermaid and her friend:

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Tiddly Inks Fab Friday

Happy Friday! It has been hot, hot, hot over here. I am wilting along with my poor plants :)

I have a new Tiddly Inks make to share with you today that features the sweetest little fairy!

The image is colored with Copic Markers and the background was sponged in with some SSS + Hero Art inks. I went over the stars and the sentiment with a Gold Wink of Stella pen. I used a Clear Wink of Stella pen to go over the fairy’s wings. I had a hard time capturing the shimmer in my photos but IRL it is just beautiful.

MFT ~ Penguins in Paradise + Video

Happy Thursday! Today I have a fun, colorful card AND video to share with you! I am totally in love with this set from My Favorite Things. It is super cute and happens to feature a favorite little critter! We all love penguins in our house :)

DSC_9529

I used masks and some inks from Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp to create the fun background. I am definitely addicted to creating background like this. It is way too much fun! The “happy” sentiment was made using a die from MFT and cutting it out 3x and then gluing the layers one on top of another. It adds al little more interest to an otherwise single layer card.

Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge

Happy Tuesday! I am back with a card for the newest Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge. I hope you can join in on the fun! The theme is Summer Song. The song I had in mind was K’naan’s song Wavin’ Flag from the Fifa World Cup games in 2010. It was an alternate version of one of his amazing songs and when I hear it, I think SUMMER! I will let you in on a secret. Years of watching my sweetie turned hubby play soccer and then watching my 3 boys play have turned me into a pretty big soccer fan. Summer = Soccer. There you have my thought process and here Is a video I found featuring the song and some fun soccer footage from the 2010 games!

 

My card features a newer digital image that is named Patriotic Wryn. I think that she can be used for any type of celebration card. She is just so sweet!

DSC_9486 copy

The image was colored with Copics and then masked so that I could add the background with Prismacolor pencils. Lots of layers on this card. Cardstock, patterned paper and vellum!

I have had a lot of request for a tutorial on how I create my backgrounds with Prismacolor pencils. I was able to film one while I was making this card. You can see it below or if you prefer HD click –>HERE.

Thanks for watching and enjoy the rest of your day and I hope you get the chance to join in our newest challenge. You can see the challenge post –> HERE
