May Cards #8 & #9



I have to eat my words. Apparently I do color now. It all started with a challenge kit swap and some wonderful instructions from Nancy on coloring with markers. She also included the 3 markers in the pic. Those are the most wonderful colors for skin tones and shading. They really have made all the difference in coloring for me. They are Zig Brushables in these colors: baby pink, fawn, platinum. The great thing about these markers is that they have 2 shades in each marker. Thanks Nancy for teaching me how to color!

These two cards are from images I received in a swap I am hosting. They were both stamped with black ink on white paper when I received them. I colored, cut, and embellished them to make these cards. I used a little diamond stickles & prima leaves on the house mouse image. The doll has a piece of ribbon I had in my stash behind the image. I used my cutter bee circle & oval cutters to cut out the images. TFL
