I had a little bit of time today to play around in my crafting area and boy-was it fun to finally get inky again. I did some copic coloring and couldn't figure out why the markers were so streaky on the paper until I realized that I was using the wrong paper. I was using a paper that had a pretty high gloss to it but by then I was committed and of course didn't want to waste paper, ink and time so I just forged onward. I am not a big Valentine's day person so I often have to push myself to make these particular cards. I like the colors used....but find that by the time Valentines rolls around I am just sick of the constant pink, red and white palette. I did find some neat stamp images the last few years and so today those are some of the images I worked with. All dies are Spellbinder Dies. The tree image is the WhipperSnapper Designs Friendship Tree. I love this little tree because it can be used for occasions other than Valentine's Day and it also has options like cutting out the flowers and hearts and popping random ones up.
Thank you for stopping by today. It is currently 2 degrees below 0 here and the windchill will have us at negative 20 degrees soon. I guess tomorrow it will be around 30 degrees below zero......brrrrrrrrr. I hope it is warmer by you all ;-D
