Flower Power


Hi Everyone!
Today is release day over at The Greeting Farm and boy has Marie and the team got some CUUUUUUTE stuff this month!! I love them all, but my personal fave is this lil girlie from the Hope and Grace line...she's called Peace!
The instant I saw this stamp I thought VW bus and I wasn't sure how I could pull that off but then I got a stroke of inspiration and decided to just draw it! This card was SUCH a blast, not only because of the bus but it was also my very first image colored entirely with Copics! I know, I know...what took me so long?? LOL. I must admit I've been a bit afraid to venture down the Copic alley because I think it takes a real eye for shading to use them (which I do Not have) and also it takes some buckeroos, if you know what I mean...those babies are spendy! But I got a few and I played a bit...and I like them...

Hope you all have a great Sunshiney Day and how could I leave without saying a HUGE Congratulations to my dear friend MARY in making the Summer DT for TGF!!! YAY!!

Absolutely beautiful work, and great job with those Copics! I wasn't sure about getting them at first, then I gave them a try and got utterly hooked!

Okay let me get this straight: you *drew* the bus??? FAR OUT!! Kadie this card is outta sight! The stitching, the flowers, and oh the Copics coloring! Groovy card, babe! {hugs}

*Thud* That would be my jaw hitting the floor! Girl, you are something else!! I don't think I would ever have the courage to draw a background, and not only were you brave enough to go for it...YOU NAILED IT!! Kadie this is wonderful!!!! What a special talent you have, and the copic skills! Get outta here! The rich colors are fabulous, and the shading looks great. This is amazing, and I still keep going back to your previous post. Both neet to be framed!!!! Keep 'em coming.
