Another mandala

I am back with the second mandala card I made over the weekend!

For this mandala I again printed it out 4 times at 3-3/4". I colored a different section of each image using a combination of Copics and pencils and cut them out with scissors. Each of the four layers are raised with dimensional tape and I added a tiny half pearl that I colored with a Copic marker to the center.

I started printing and coloring mandalas for practice. Here are some that I colored. If you like to color these are so much fun and it is so relaxing!

While my mojo was missing I printed and colored some mandalas. I decided to make cards with a couple of them. Definitely not quick and easy cards! The coloring is very time consuming but I like the results. I an posting one now and the other one tomorrow.

I started by printing the mandala four times at 3-3/4" and colored different sections on each print as I wanted it to be 3 dimensional. I used a combination of Copics and pencils for the coloring and then cut out the different pieces  with scissors and used dimensional tape to raise each of the three inner layers. If you do a search for mandalas you will find hundreds! The card is 5.5" square.

Quilted trio

Hello blog friends! Today I have three cards to share with you. These cards are for a set of 6 with two of each of the three in the set. The sentiment is the same on all of them.

Aren't these images just the cutest? They are free digi images from Beccy. Look in the right hand column and they are the last three under Animals.I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and they were so much fun to color!

Just for you

I have really been neglecting my blog lately but my mojo got lost and I am having a hard time finding it! I made this card for the CASE challenge on Card Camp.

Last of the February swaps

I jioned in all four swaps for February on Card Camp. These are the last two cards.

This swap required us to use a butterfly on our card. I chose this stamp from an old favorite set from Stampin Up.

February swaps

One of the swap themes for February on Card Camp was a color theme.

We were to make a card with turquoise, brown and cream.

Another swap theme was to use a digital stamp from our files. This is the card I made for that swap.

With Sympathy

These are a couple of sympathy cards made at the request of a friend.

A couple of Cuttlebug folders and a Martha Stewart punch make up the main ingredients for this card.

I had printed a few copies of this Magnolia digi so I used a copy for this sympathy card. It is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Turpenoid.

Simple Pleasures

The challenge on Card Camp  last week was to make a card that reminded us of summer. A pretty big challenge considering the weather!

Not that I wear flip-flops but the younger generation seem to live in them during the summer so they do remind me of summer. I have had the stamp for some time and it has no manufacturer on it but I just realized that they are two left feet!

One of the swap choices on Card Camp was to put a vehicle on your card.

I used the same digi pic for the swap and for a CASE challenge on the group.

This card will also be one of the 'get well' cards that a friend asked me to make. The digi came from Beccy's Place. You can get it HERE
