Here are two more images from the Tick Tock book for you to enjoy. This book is a treasure full of beautiful line images. This weekend I picked up four new books at the flea market from the early 1900's chock full of images for us to play with in our art. I can't wait to share them. Also if you are looking for a certain type of image let me know and I will keep an eye out at the flea market. I love a good hunt. They need to be out of copyright or I can't share them on the blog, thus the vintage theme.
This week our guest hostess is Yolanda. She has created two beautiful cards for us today. I love her rich use of color and the words she has added to her cards. Her unique coloring has brought the images to life. I hope you are inspired to take the challenge and create something amazing with this week's images.
: The easel card base is a 4.5” x 12” piece of DCWV Autumn Splendor cardstock, purple and bright green Color Box Petal Point ink and colored with Prisma colored pencils, purple DriMark Metallic marker and Copic E50. It’s embellished with tiny Mark Richards crystal star stickers. My fairy card is much more spectacular in real life, alas. My photo didn’t capture the metallic in the purple fairy dresses or the shine of the stars on their wands and above the sentiment as nicely as I would have liked. I am craving some Stampin’ Up Crystal Effects, which would have been very nice for the wings.
: The card base is the same paper from DCBW Autumn Splendor inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen and colored with Prisma colored pencils and Copic E50. I found an affordable set of Copics called Manga Skin Colors at Amazon.com and have been very pleased with it. I like my card people to be able to be multi-ethnic and this set offers a nice range of skin tones.
: Here is Yolanda's Bio in her own words. " I am an editor for a non-profit and married with three adult sons. I used to scrapbook a lot and dabbled in card making, but I didn’t become a serious card crafter until this May when I discovered Operation Write Home (operationwritehome.org) while on Facebook. My youngest son was about to deploy with the Army and it was the perfect thing for me to be doing. Now I have another enlisted son who is in Basic Training. I’ve enjoyed getting to know people and being a blessing to troops and their families through this great organization. Card making has become a wonderful creative outlet for me.
