Get Well Floral Spray

Hello friends,

I've been trying to replenish my stash of  "Get Well" cards.   They seemed to disappear over the Winter.   I purposefully didn't not blend the strokes out on the petals.  I thought it had a more natural look.   I used a gel pen to break up the color in the center of each flower.

Copics used:
Pink: R20, R21, R22, R24
Green: G00, G02, G05, G07
I added some dots with a white gel pen

Recipe for Happiness


I have wanted to color up this cute little Italian guy for years.  He has been collecting dust.  I don't think dust tastes good on spaghetti.   I'm so glad that I cleaned him off and put him to use.   Maybe we should have spaghetti for dinner tonight?  YUM YUM YUM!

Double Duty--watercolor


I have two cards to share with you today.  I'm calling them sister cards.  I wanted to share because I'm sure my fellow card makers can relate.    It starts as all good crafting stories do... on Pinterest.  I won't bore you with all the details.... lets just say I didn't get the same results.   I was determined not to toss the end products in the trash.    After a lot of playing around... here is my Pintwist (Yep... I made that up).

I ended up making two cards.  I learned a lot.  Therefore, I'm calling it a success.

No copics today- I used watercolor
