Peace Card

Here is a card that was inspired by the sketch on CAS(E) this Sketch! #110.

I really liked the simplicity of the sketch and I immediately knew what I wanted to make.  This is a simple, every day card.  The stamp is a Mary Englebright which is technically for Christmas but I wanted to make it so that it could work for any occasion.  Coloring was done using my Polychromos pencils.  The background stamping uses the gear with the Elegant Suit stamp.  To add some sparkle I used the Sakura gelly roll clear. Getting the sparkle to show in the pictures was a little difficult so please don't mind the shadows.

I would like to enter this card in the CAS(E) this Sketch! #100 challenge.

Easter 2014

Here are the cards that I made for Easter 2014. Most of the coloring was done with my wonderful Polychromos pencils, but I added some sparkle with these cheap glitter pens that I got from our local stationary store.  The pictures make it hard to see the sparkle but in real life it is nice and glittery.

Those are mini Scrabble tiles - love em!

Valentines 2014

Here are the cards that I made for Valentines day 2014.  I used Sharpies (in the picture it looks really "stripy" but in real life they looked fine) or my much loved Polychromos.  I added accents using glitter and Liquid Pearls.

This is the card I made for my husband using a tutorial from The Gentleman Crafter, an absolutely amazing crafter.  I used leather cord for the laces that I had bought at the Kaltenburg medieval festival.  It Torsten a few moments to figure out the inside (hint: turn it to the side).
