Embelishing titles and Card Challenge

Another fun article over at Get It Scrapped to share.  Today’s article feature embellished titles, ways to add a little zing to a title.  I have a layout in the article that I added a lot of ZING to I had so much fun putting this one together!

Here is a close up of the title work.  I painted the chipboard letters with gesso, doodled with a Copic Multiliner and added color with Copics.

On a separate note, with the girls back in school I am trying to spend a little crafty time every day so I have started doing a few card challenges again.  Here is a quick one that I created for a challenge over at Twin Touch Markers & More Challenges.  The requirements are food and shading.  I used my Copic markers for this card since I only own 6 Twin Touch markers.

I used R20, R22, R24, R29, BG53 and BG57 to color in the cupcake from a sheet of doodled paper by Luxe.  The background is created with Copic ink dripped on vellum and then dabbing blending solution over it with a cotton ball.  the patterned paper is by Basic Grey and the cardstocks are both Bazzill.  The felt flowers are from Queens and Co.

Thanks for stopping by today, HUGS!

Another wonderful article over at Get It Scrapped!  This time on scrapping with 3 photos.  I am always so impressed how well thought out the articles are.  Debbie, Amy and Tami take such a wonderful approach listing options and showing highlights to different design elements!  If you didn’t know the Get It Scrapped Blog has new articles almost every week day.  It is an impressive amount of creative inspiration pouring out of that site.  I am so lucky to be a part of it!

In this article I have a new layout that my family will LOVE.  It is featuring some family members and my Mom came up with the inspiration for it so thank you so much Mom!

On the family scene the girls are back to school!  Wednesday was their first day in 2nd and 4th grade.  Both came out of the building with huge smiles saying they had a perfect day and both waved to several people both on the way in and out of the building!  Yeah for great starts.
