It's Not All Black and White

The Little Things

Wow! Life is moving along at a whirlwind pace right now. But I'm actually enjoying it.

This Lockhart image was sitting on my desk half colored, so I pulled out Julee's mojo sketch from last week and set to work. I also am trying to figure out a new camera. I think I'm going to like it though.

The image was colored with the following Copic markers: RV34, R29, G21, YG63, YG03, B00, 0.
I added some clear Spica glitter pen to the berries.

Stamps: Strawberries (Lockhart); sentiment-Petals & Stems (Verve Visual); faux stitching- Faux Ribbon (Papertrey Ink)

Paper: bashful blue, real red, Cutie Pie, Palette o Prints (Stampin' Up!); white (Georgia Pacific)

Ink: Brilliance Graphite; Real Red (SU!); Copic markers; Clear Spica glitter pen

Accessories: May Arts ribbon; large oval punch, slot punch, vintage brads (SU!); ProvoCraft scallop scissors; dimensionals


Thank you so much to those who have given me ideas and recommendations for my trip. We're staying about a mile north of the Champs Elysee in Paris and near Chelsea in London. Both hotels look quite clean and comfortable. I'll definately have pictures to share with you when I return.
