Goodbye March Break

Well, it’s been a good week off, I got lots done around the house – all those little jobs that I just haven’t had the opportunity to get to. I finished the week off by cleaning the house today so that I can relax and enjoy the weekend. I then had a little bit of time to spend in the craft cabana before I made dinner and I put together this card:

Say Hello

I think my favourite part of this image is my colouring of the grass. I wanted to try something different rather than just shading it with copics, so I used a bit of a flicking technique that I also use when I’m colouring hair.

The image is a Kraftin’ Kimmie one, her name is Springtime Maisie, and I think she is super cute. I coloured her up with Copics, and cut her out. I cut the oval and scalloped oval out with my nestabilities, and used the My Favorite Things cloud die to cut out my stencils for the clouds, which I sponged with Stampin’ Up’s Bashful Blue ink. The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie, the flower is from a punch I have. I used a Stampin’ Up embossing folder to emboss the background.

*UPDATE* I originally made this card for last week's Kraftin' Kimmie challenge (Anything Goes), but by the time I went to link it, the challenge was closed... I woke up this morning and checked the Challenge Blog and wouldn't you know it! This week's theme is "Put a Button On It"! Well, I did that! Looks like I'm nice and super early for a challenge, for once.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend!
