Case This Sketch #116 and Colour Q #284

Hello everyone!  Are you enjoying the Spring weather?!  I am loving hearing the birds and seeing the bulbs push their vibrant green leaves out of the ground BUT...I just wish the temps would get a little warmer.   If this keeps up the Easter bunny will have to wear a coat!

 I apologize but I had so much furn with the PTI challenge involving stamping your own patterned paper (discussed in my last post) that I just had to try it again.   I decided to use :

That way I wouldn't have to rack my brain figuring out a style and color for my card set.  I can get to the fun part...decorating!

I have to apologize for the poor photos.  I have a light box but am trying to figure out the best position for the lights in my room.

I used PTI's Make It Monday #45: Coloring Embossed Images with Copics. Yes it is an older video but one of my favorite techniques! I haven't felt like coloring detailed images with shading and such as you are supposed to with Copics so this technique makes my Copics feel less neglected and me more creative! 

I used PTI's Year of Flowers collection and Mat Stack Two to complete my card set.  I added a layer of glossy accents to the flowers to really make them pop!  I also tried a new embellishment.  Some messy gold thread behind the focal image.  I love the texture it adds without adding a lot of bulk!  I think I need to find some in silver too!

Time to run!  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit again!  Those of you in my part of the world...stay warm!
