Here are a few of my creations I have done for this hop today!

For this card I used Spectrum Noir colored pencils and gamsol to color it with. Now, this almost didnt survive....I spilled half my bottle of gamsol all over it and the table too...ug!! I was glad I was able because I spent some time on this coloring it...and I do have to say, I LOVE the Spectrum Pencils too! :D


for this card I was lazy, lol! I used some water color crayons I have and scribbled with them and then scribbled with water too. I saw a technique on SplitCoast to add glitter (I KNOW!! Dont faint Lee!) with a stencil and so I did that on this one. The butterfly is all sparkly with wink of Stella pen...that sure is a fun pen to have too! easy sparkle!! Here is a little closeup of the glittery stuffs:


And for this one, I mainly wanted to show off that gorgeous paper that you can get in the 'Ang and Me' kit which is available at Gina K Designs.
Ok, ready for more eye candy?

Mel's Fabulous OTHER Frame sets! ...and there is definitely a rush order in on this new set, I'm sure! Here is my card I made for today with it:


    I just had to bust out the kraft cardstock this go round, lol! I did not color the flower this time, I just stamped with versamark and then added white embossing powder. The panel behind the flower is an embossed piece of cardstock with versamark ink and clear embossing powder on it to give it that look. The top layer of the card has some 'film' overlay on it by Tim Holtz, you cant see it in the pic...i tried and tried to get a good one with it, lol!

    Up next is Debbie Corbari's newest set called, Let's Talk...and this is SUCH a fun set! You can go super simple with this set and it still will look awesome! Here is mine for today:


    And that is what i did, go simple for this today! I already had the kraft and embossing stuffs out so just used it again to make this card...added a bit of distressing to it and inked the edges a bit with the black and all done! Looks pretty good me thinks! :D

    Up first today, I HAD to do some coloring with my brand spanking new Spectrum Noir Markers!, and I can honestly say I am just THRILLED how these color! Brief story...I started buying the 'OTHER' markers that shall not be named and when the price did such a jump, I just could not justify spending THAT much for one marker! Sooo, I quit buying them and waited patiently until some nice soul came out with some cheaper but still did as good...these are them. I am serious! Here is my card for today using the markers:


    I colored that big ole yummy flower from the new kit, couldnt resist! I, by far, am no expert at coloring with markers, but I so love how this turned out! I used the following Markers:

    So if you have been searching for some wonderful awesome markers, at a MUCH better price...these are them! And we are so lucky to have Gina K Designs carrying them! :D

    Next I have a card where I played around with some canvas:


    I also colored that big ole flower again using the markers...I didnt do much shading on this, because on canvas, markers of any kind will bleed and I didnt want that. But this overall effect looks good to me! And its hubby's favorite! :D

    Ok, ready for more awesome eye candy? Just follow the links below:


    Thanks sooo much for hanging with me during my lack of ...oh laziness! LOL! I have so many more cards to share with you with this kit and will be uploading them as the week goes by! so come on back for a visit! Ill keep the door open for ya! :D
