Craft Fix

The last two weeks have been BUSY! Babysitting, canning, doctor appointments for DH and last night we picked the last of the tomatoes before the rain came. Today I'll need to can them after I get home from babysitting.

Yesterday I had to spend time in my craft room. I needed my down time. I got three cards made for the CDAC Progressive Challenge. The photos aren't the best but at 11:30 last night, it's the best I could do.

The first one is an image provided by Lia Stampz.

I printed her on Neenah card stock and colored her with my Copics: skin - E00, E21, E50, R21; hair - E30, E31, E33, E37; scarf and purse - B04, B05, B06, Spica Baby Blue and Clear; coat and shoes - R24, R27, R29; earrings - Spica Lipstick.

The paper is Cosmo Cricket's UPcycle. I found the sentiment at Create with TLC. Paulette is wonderful with free digis. I cut it out with Spellbinders S4-111 and used Barn Door Distress Ink on it. I mixed Barn Door Reinker with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls and water in a Mini Mister to dye my seambinding.

Just Inklined provided the sunflower image.

Again the image is printed on Neenah and colored with Copics: petals - Y13, Y19, Y38, outlined with Spica Clear and highlights with Lemon; seed head - E29, E35, YR14, YR21, YR24, YR31; leaves G21, G24. I used Spellbinders S4-110 to cut the oval.

I colored a second butterfly so I could pop the wings up from the card; R24, R27, YR25, W5. After I cut it out, I covered it with Glossy Accents

The paper is Kraft cardstock and black (cut with Spellbinders S4-111) from my stash. I got the sentiment from Paulette at Create with TLC. The seambinding was dyed with Distress Reinker Mustard Seed mixed with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearl and water.

My third card was done with an image from Glitterbabe.

Again, colored with Copics on Neenah: green apples - YG00, YG01, YG11; red apples - E04, R24, R27, R29; stem - E17; leaf - G07, G28; bowl - B91, B93, B95, B97, E11, E21, E41, E53; tablecloth - Y08, Y13, Y15.

The paper is Olivia from Basic Grey and Kraft cardstock. The sentiment is from Paulette. I told you I like her images and sentiments! And finally, I used Spellbinders S4-110, S4-111 and S4-304.

Now to link at the challenge. I hope I get more time to craft today. I didn't get enough of a fix yesterday.
