More Cards

OK seems like I am getting back into the swing :)

I don't know how everyone else goes about making cards, but I usually have MANY many "in the works" I have tons of images already colored that's for sure, but also I have a pile of 1/2 made cards, sometimes it's just the papers picked, sometimes I've cut the mats already & picked out the bg paper and the ribbon too.....so I banged out these 5 cards yesterday ;)


This one I rec'd the image from WRAK and I don't know the name.... colored it with Copic markers and the BG is Cuttlebug embossing folder which I used on DCWV cs and then I sanded it.
~Card Recipe~
Stamps: Wrak'd Angel
Paper: DCWV Blue, Green Galore
Accessories: Copic & like Markers, Variegated Sheer ribbon, CM cutting system Ovals, CB embossing Folder Tiny Bubbles, sandpaper



This one I used the negative space from the previous card for the cut out oval. I usually do that, when I need to cut a shape I will cut it from the center of a 4.25x5.5 piece, so that I can still use the leftover for a card base and cover it up... and sometimes I use the cutout :) So I colored this with markers again... (I hardly ever use pencils & OMS anymore) and then I sponged lightly with Summer Sky memento ink.

Here's a late Valentine.... I never did post the other ones I made... maybe tomorrow :)
I got this image & sentiment from Sheila - thanks!!! Colored with markers and for the sentiment I punched it with the word window and then punched it again to make it shorter, then inked it with TH Distress inks.

This one has been laying around a while..... I also sponged around this one with the Summer Sky ink and added paper glaze to the rain & puddle - OH and I got the sentiment from Laurie!! TY! - OH and the Glitter paper I used for the buckle punch from Lee! :)~Card Recipe~

This one came about because I was stamping this image for wishes ;) I just LOVE that color marker that I used for his main skin, it's Prismacolor marker "LimePeel" and I think I need to find a Copic match, because I fear it will run out soon! Pen-stitched the square.
