Copic Creations ~ Sky/Clouds

Happy May Day!    Hopefully, this means the weather will START to be a little warmer!!    🙂

We’ve got a new challenge today at the Copic Creations blog ~ coloring SKY/CLOUDS with your Copic markers.   You’ll find lots of great tutorials to help . . . AND, our sponsor is Lili of the Valley ~ home to some of THE cutest images around.

This little cutie from Lili of the Valley is called Lazy Afternoon.   I thought he might work well as a Father’s Day card … a little early!

Here’s a quick closeup of the computer generated sentiment:

I hope you can hop over to the Copic Creations blog to take a peek at the ADORABLE cards from the DT … all made with images from LOTV.

Copic Creations ~ We’re Cool! (And blog candy winner … finally!)



We’ve got a new challenge for you today at the Copic Creations blog ~ COOL colors.   We’ve included lots of information on how to determine if a color is either Warm or COOL, including charts and links.     AND, we have a wonderful sponsor this week . . . the awesome Lili of the Valley!    They really have some of THE cutest images around.



This cutie is from the LOTV fairies collection  ~  On Tiptoe .    I thought she would be perfect for a SPRINGTIME card!   I seriously can’t wait for spring to arrive … it’s been another long winter this year.    [Updated to add:   We’re expecting 10-15 inches of snow through tomorrow in good old Wisconsin  ….   Calgon take me away!]    

I’ve added some clouds in the background using this fun technique I found from Gina K. on the awesome Stamp TV.

The papers and sentiment are from the Graphic 45  Once Upon a Springtime 8×8 paper pad.  

If you love LOTV images, be sure to stop over at the Copic Creations blog to see all the amazing projects from the DT.    I hope you can join us for our COOL challenge!  

I REALLY have to apologize for being LATE in picking a winner for my blog candy!   OMGosh, I can’t believe it, but I thought I had set the date for 2/1!   I’m sooo fired!   🙂   

 Without further ado …   the winner, picked using, is 

Rach of  The Paper Crafting Place

Thank you EVERYONE for your wonderful wishes!   Congrats Rach ~  I’ll be sure to have your gift certificate to you later today!
