No Scraps Left Behind

First off, I want to thank everyone who bid or left a comment on my cards for Blogging for Boobies.  I have not heard a final number (in total) but I'm sure that a generous donation is being made!


So, on to new things!  I have been on vacation, and was really busy before, and after (laundry anyone?) and so I went several weeks making nothing.  Nada. No Crafty at my house. :(  This past weekend, I finally got around to at least doing some coloring.






I'm in love with the flamingo and pineapple trend!  I don't have any pineapple stamps (yet) but I have a few of the flamingo sets out there!  I played around with my Copic markers to color these guys.


I also colored some flowers that I'd stamped awhile back.  I'm not a good blender at Copics.  I've never had a class, and completely self taught.  I love coloring, but I find some of the blending very challenging.  I made this card for a friend with my flowers I'd colored. 


I absolutely love this Sketch Ranunculus set from Simon Says Stamp.  It's so cute, and so forgiving, and so different of a floral.  It's whimsical! 


I also made this card with the scraps and remnants of cards I'd started, flowers I'd colored, etc.  I keep a little basket on my desk with homeless card parts in it and I find myself reaching in to try and figure out a way to use my scraps up.  It's fun!  Some of my best creations come from the hodge podge of experiments!


Anyway, that is my post for today.  I need to figure out what to do with my flamingos!


Peace,
Jacquie
