Comfort Zone: GONE!

Poof!  LOL!

I tried something I don't normally do - EVER.  I created a scene behind my image *or tried to!* and I went very, ultra CAS.  Well, as CAS I could allow myself ;)

I went with the theme over at the TGF FFF challenge this week:  Summer Lovin'!

I colored this TGF cutie in Copics as well as the beachy/cloudy scene behind her.  I didn't want to add any papers; and just kept all eyes on her and the beach she's vacationing at !   I used some of my most favorite Washi tape, added some hemp twine and fussy cut out the cute Summer tag from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection.  I attempted some doodling around the image with my Copic mutliliner *ok, thats not as easy as it looks, lol*.  And voila, a cute, simple card !

Feeling good to get back on the horse

Hey, hey, hey....

The past couple of months have been quite rough here and without getting into the nitty gritty, I haven't had much time to touch my Copics or make any cards.  Not happy!! However, with a bit of a break from the crazy, and the long, holiday weekend, I was able to not only color, but finish up a card, too.  I was a little rusty but it felt so good for some crafty therapy ;)

I used this fabulous digi from Some Odd Girl and a sketch from Iheartsketches as inspiration.

These new papers I won in a RAK are just gorgeous and if anyone knows who they are by, would you pretty please tell me in the comments below??  I just love them and need to get more of them!!!  The mix of patterns are oh so soft and pretty!  Her glorious wings were colored in a light BG color and then I added some Ocean Water Stickles on top to make them pop.  The cute little butterfly was given polka dots with my Copic multiliner and then smothered in Glossy Accents.  I used a Wilton doily and added some Recollections pearls.  I'm not sure if you can tell, but I spritzed the daisy with some Sheer Shimmer Sparkle and then centered it with some pink/white twine and a button.  There is a very sheer, pale green ribbon behind the flower.  I also used one of my Fiskars punches.  The sentiment was from the Stampin' Up Kindness Matters set and was inked in Momento Tuxedo Black.

For all my friends in the States, I hope you had a fun and safe holiday weekend!  Wishing you all a happy week ahead!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hopefully I'll be back with more in the near future!
