A Tasty Read

After the kids went to bed last night, I managed to get down to my craft room for some much needed papercrafting!  I just downloaded this image (A Tasty Read by Elizabeth Bell) and wanted to play!  She's coloured with my Copics ( E000, E00, E21, E34, E35, E97, E99, R20, R24, R27, R29, Y21, YR20, YR21) and I touched up the grass with pencil crayons since I don't have any green Copics yet.  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Olivia Collection.  The edges of the cardstock pieces are all sponged with Stampin' Up ink.  I added some detail with my white gel pen to finish it off!

After I coloured my image, I went looking around for challenges that I could enter as I made my card.  I found these three and thought they were perfect!  Here they are in no particular order:

Simon Says . . . . . . Bingo!  For this challenge, we were given a bingo card and then we got to choose any three items that were in a straight line on the bingo card.  I chose Ribbon, Die Cuts, and Embossing (heat or dry).  This card has white taffeta ribbon, flowers from Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Florals Die, and I used my Scor-Pal to emboss lines around my image.

Copic Creations - Challenge No. 42 ~ What's New?  As soon as I got my first order of Copics (just last week), I found this Copic challenge blog!  This challenge is easy:  use anything that I have that is new!  So, my Copics are new (my first batch, actually!),  the image is also new!  When I found A Tasty Read at Elizabeth Bell Designs I just HAD to get it!  She is so sweet and reminds me so much of my daughter, Taylor!

Friday Sketchers: Challenge #138  Make sure you go check out this sketch!  It's a wonderful sketch to work with!  It made making a beautiful card, so easy!

Well, I'm off to get some time outside!  Today is a rare Yukon winter day with the temperature only at -1 degree Celsius!   I hope you all have a delightful Saturday!
