Owen Fishing

Happy Friday!!!

  Today I want to share a card with you that I made using the stamp Owen Fishing.
you can find that stamp here.

I colored this image using my Prismacolor pencils and used a oval cross stitched die cut to cut it out.
I used a few other die cutes and the fishing pole was a 3D stamp I had received in a swap!


Thanks for checking out my card!!

Maddie with Glasses with Leah

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well :)  Are you enjoying the sunshine where you are?  We finally have sunshine!  And I am just dying to sit in the sun and read a book :)

So I have created a bookmark featuring Maddie with Glasses and I have colored her with watercolor pencils :)


This is one of my most favorite dolls :)  Maybe because I'm a book worm :P


This girl is a lot of fun to color, and I know I have colored her quite a few times for cards, but I especially like her on a book mark.  What do you think?


If you would like to see more details about this project, please visit my blog at odetopaper.blogspot.ca.

That's all from me for now, stay tuned for more inspiration from our talented design team, and join us for the monthly challenges.  They always start on the first Monday of the month and they run all month long!  And as always, the theme is Anything Goes!  See you soon!

Rainy Days

Karen N here from Craftily Yours.  Happy Saturday, Y'all!

Northern California (where I'm from) had a whole lotta rain this year, so I thought I'd create a rain-inspired card for my inspiration post over at Paper Nest Dolls!

This sentiment-less card could be used for quite a few occasions.  I used the plain version of Rainy Day Emma to create this:



I super love that sweet frog and that sweet duckling!  I colored with Copics:

Hair:  E21, E23, E25
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R20
Outfit:  Y000, Y00, Y02, R81, R83, BG53, BG57, BG10
Frog:  G14, G16
Duck:  Y15, Y18, YR14
Ground:  BG01, BG02

The rest of the card is a mixture of papers, flowers, lace and jelly dots I had in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours,

Karen
