Anya Ink Challenge

Hi there! Here's a project I made particularly for the challenge over at Anya Ink.  They wanted to see an easel card.  So I went with "Eric," from GF.  I colored him with Copics and tried to do the same hair coloring technique that Mary Giles does (she has a fab tutorial HERE).
The papers are DCWV.  I got the red glitter letters at Joann during Valentine's Day clearance.  The ribbon is also from Joann.  Thanks for looking!  See you again soon!

Father's Day...a little early

Hi there! Just wanted to quickly share this card I made to give my step-dad.  I bought him a portable hammock to camp with but because he started camping already, I decided to give him the gift tonight so he can appreciate it next weekend at camp.  I saw this stamp on Ebay and thought it would make a perfect card for Father's Day.  Inside I stamped "Happy Early Father's Day."  I colored the chair with Copics.  The background papers are embossed with CB Mesh and Herringbone.  The center rectangle (with image) was cut with Spellbinders. I finished it off with 3 button brads in black.  Thanks for checking it out today! Have a great night!
