I have been playing along with the D2D digital images (Designed2Delight) for a while and always love the way they turn out. This sweet singing bird is headed to Afghanistan- hopefully the young man I send it to will send it home to his Mom….. I work with his Mother and I know she would love this sweet card.
The sketch is from Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Challenge Blog #22 (OWH). Operation Write Home is a group that sends cards to soldiers by the dozens and hundreds! Please stop by the blog and check out how you can help! If you are a demo of any company- they would LOVE to have your retired card fronts-no glitter allowed. I can attest to the fact that the soldiers LOVE having cards to send home.
I also used a music theme from the Incy Wincy challenge blog.
I colored the image with Copic markers E31, E33, E35, E39, YG03, YG17 and I water colored the bird with SU Soft Sky and Blue Bayou with the aquapainter.
Next, I have a little story to tell you- last Sunday-yes, Father’s Day, our family headed out to church. As we were pulling into the parking lot, we ran out of gas……! My husband has a little ‘self challenge’ to see how far he can go on the least amount of gas…..he has never run out before… (believe me, I mag him about it because usually I get into the car to go somewhere and there is no gas!) So, I made this for the family in our neighborhood that 'rescued us' gave us a ride home.…….. I just got some stamps from I Brake for Stamps (a grab bag) and guess what image I got in the group???
I used one of the sentiments from the D2D digi this week and used the musical background paper again. I colored the image with Copics and added the TJ Whisped Frames around the edges. I hope the family will get a good chuckle when they get this card
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
