Some Teacher Gifts

Good Monday morning. Hope you had a great weekend. Today I have some card sets I made for my boys teachers as gifts. I had fun with these ones.

This first set uses the same paper for all but a different Sarah Kay stamp for each card

Here are the Copics I used in this set: E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, YG95, YG99, Y21, Y35, Y38, B00, B0000, R17, R20, R81, R85, R89, B93, B97, W1, W5, W7

To get the backgrounds I airbrushed with B0000 & E31

This second set uses the same stamp but different background papers (all the same paper line Basic Grey Green At Heart)

Bright Pink background: YG95, YG99, RV10, RV11, RV13, airbrush: YR01
Purple Background: YG95, YG99, V15, V17 airbrush : YR01
Light Pink Background: YG95, YG99, R81, R85, R89 airbrush: YG13
Green background: YG95, YG99, YG11, YG13 airbrush R81
Orange Background: YG95, YG99 YR01, YR04, YR07 airbrush R81

I sure hope they like them. Have a great day everyone. Hard to believe it's almost the end of June.

A few more Copic projects

Good morning. Thought I'd share a couple more cards I did using Copics.

This first one is using Kraftin' Kimmie's stamps which I'm totally in love with! They are so cute.

Copics: Blender, W1, W7, YR16, YR18, G82, G85, BV29, E50, R20, R37, B93, B97

This next one I wanted to play with these lilies. It's hard to see but I used the clear Spica pen to highlight the lilies. I also used my new Copic air gun (given to me by my wonderful hubby) to add the pink to the background of the stamped image.

Copics: YG95, YG99, YR01, YR04, YR07, YR09, Blender, Clear Spica pen.
I used R81 to air brush the pink background

Well I'm off to get my day going. Have a super Thursday.

Here is my tip for the month: Pick a color and then "build" around it. So start with whatever color is going to be the stand out color of your image. It could be blue or green...whatever. Then chose colors to go with that color.

Don't forget to check out Lisa's fabulous creations as well.

Have a great day!
