Hiya & Happy Tuesday to ya all! Well we're slowly into the week from heck for me, LOL! Just lots goin' on & lots to get done as usual. Today I have to get my son to his pulmonologist appointment (fight traffic in rush hour, and race back to try & get him back to school before noon) and then drive Alexa to gymnastics and somewhere in between find time to complete projects & make dinner, hee hee! And I'm still stunned & depressed over the death of Patrick Swayze--I knew he was sick, but it always comes as a bad shock ya know?! I have always adored "Dirty Dancing", "Ghost" & "The Outsiders" that he was in and have watched them more times than I can admit to ya, hee hee! And I always admired the drama free & loyal romance he had with his wife for so many years--gotta love that! Anywhoo, movin' on..........

Copic Creations Challenge!!
Today is the 15th of the month so that means it's Copic Creations Challenge time!! This time we were challenged to use BOTH Copics & Prisma Pencils together on these beautiful fairy images from Stamps Happen! Stamps Happen is our sponsor for this challenge & they graciously donated a fairy stamp to each of the DT to use today along w/ a fabulous prize you can see at the Copic Creations Challenge Blog HERE.
The fairy I used is called "Chicory Fairy" and you can see/buy their stamps HERE! This was very fun to color but oh so detailed to do. And I hadn't used my Prismas in over a year, but it was fun to pull them out again. The sentiment is from a Verve Stamps set I have and the ribbon is Offray!
I used my Prisma's on the sky background (lt.cerulan blue, true blue, parma violet), leaves (dark green) and flowers/dress (pink) along with my copics. To do this you color with your copics first and then add your Prisma coloring/shading & then blend w/ your gamsol (odorless mineral spirites). The gamsol DOES NOT hurt your copic coloring in any way--very cool technique. Then I added diamond stickles to her wings and gold Smooch to the inside stems of the flowers. I think she's just beautiful IMO, hee hee--I really love her!
Now make sure and stop by the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's fabulous creations & find out how you can enter the challenge as well!
Try It Out Tuesday for SCACD!
For my card today I used one of the fabulous NEW Lockhart Stamp Co. images called "Candy Wreath"--you can see/buy all the new Lockharts right HERE. I colored mine with copics and then added diamond glaze to the candies & diamond stickles to the wrappers for lots of sparkle! I cut it out w/ my circle nestabilities so it would look like a fun wreath on the front of my card along w/ a fab bow!
This is what the card looks like when it's opened! I created my front image on a belly-band so you can just slip it off easily but you can also create this card with different closures to your liking! A Holly-Jolly Christmas card for ya today!
Now make sure and stop by the "Follow Your Heart" blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with for ya today!
That's all for me today--see ya back here tomorrow!
