Hello! Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by today.
Today is our last "Back to School" challenge here on 3 Clovers Thursday. And I found this to be a tough one! How was I going to incorporate a number. I do like to make cards that I will actually use as some point. I don't want to make a 25th anniversary card when I don't know anyone celebrating a 25th anniversary. Know what I mean? Plus, I find it harder to make a card when I don't have a receiver in mind. Sometimes for the design teams that I am on I do have to do this and you know what? I struggle the most with those. Not because I don't like the stamps but because I don't want it to feel "generic". Anyhooooo, about 9:30 Wednesday night I remembered that my friend's daughter will be turning 1 next month. 2.5 hours later this is what I had. The picture is looking on my computer more red than the card actually is. Technically it's a "Rose Red". Pinkish-red. But redish colors are hard for me to photograph. I dunno....it is what it is!
How stinkin' cute is this little Hilda image? I love Motivet stamps! All the little critters look so smoochable! Heeheehee
>>>>>Ok, I am going to try something new for sharing the Copics. When I take a pic of the Copics that I used, I realize that there are so many markers in my piles that it's difficult to figure out what #/colors I used on what part of the image. So I am going to start writing the markers that I use down and indicating where I used what color. The problem with this is that I don't always post the cards that I make when I make them. On Tuesday night I made a card...wrote the numbers down, brought it up to my computer....but I haven't gotten around to posting the card yet. At this moment do you think I can find that list of markers? nooooo! So I don't knpow if I'll have that list for you when I do post that card. But I digress....Let me know if you prefer this way or the visual more.
Hilda: C4, C1, C00
Sweater/Bows: R39, R37, R35--then over all I used R11 to take away the redness and give it more pinkness.
Skirt: YG95, YG93, YG91--Then over all I used YG03 to brighten it up.
Background: B00, B0000,+ the colorless blender to fade it out more
Grass: YG25, YG23, YG 21
Have an OUTSTANDING Thursday!
