A mish mash of projects

Good Morning!
I have a few things to share today and I do hope you enjoy them!
This first card was made using Cindy's sketch in the MFT forum on SCS. This is sketch #77.
I was excited to use some of my new nesties that I picked up from PaperWorksCo.
I've been practicing more and more with my Copics and shading a bit. I think I'm improving...what do you think?
Stamps: By the Seashore; Cardstock: Kiwi, Riding Hood Red, White and Scenic Route DP; Inks: Memento black; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Silver brads, Curly label punch, Paper piercer, Dimensionals
This week the girls at All That Scraps are doing a review of a newly released set called Tweet-ies and you can see what fantastic cards have been made by stopping by the ATS Blog. I coloured this cute image with my SU! watercolour pencils and an aqua painter. The sketch comes from my Baker's Dozen team member Karen Giron.
Stamps: Tweet-ies, AmyR Birthday Sentiments; Cardstock: Really Rust, Choc Chip, WC paper and DP; Inks: Black Stazon, SU! Watercolour Pencils; Accessories: Aqua painter, Choc satin ribbon, button, linen thread, wavy border punch
The Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS was called Framed. You could interpret it anyway you liked ;) I decided to make myself a post it note holder with a 5 x 7 acrylic frame. The post it notes had the cute grass/flowers on the bottom already.
Stamps: Trendy Trees; Cardstock: Old Olive, WW and Haiku dp; Inks: Choc chip, So saffron, Tangerine, Old olive; Accessories: Acrylic frame, Post it Notes, Tangerine ribbon, SAMJ, Mat pack and Paper piercer
Thanks for stopping by today!

I can see the shading on the MFT girl and it looks GREAT! Love the seagull in the circle too.

The tweet-ies character is just CUUUUTE! Definitely made me smile. :)

Dawn, your colouring is great! Love each of the projects. They're all so different!! Love your colours (I'm a colour junkie ...) :)

Your cards are fabulous, and yep, I see the shading, your coloring is amazing!! So, are the Copics more fun than the SU! markers? And, should I bet getting some nesties?? You are a horrible enabler, lol!!

I totally love that tweetie, makes me giggle!! Great eye candy again today Dawn!!

Very pretty, Dawn!! Love all the cards/projects! What a great idea to use the acrylic frame for this weeks WT challenge!! I actually have one, I would work on it now! LOL!

Kelly Schelske said...

Fabulous creations Dawn! ! My gosh you are so productive!!

Hope you have a great weekend!


Maria said...

Wow Dawn. . .your 2 cards are fantastic and your post-it note holder is awesome!! I love the layout on your first card with the different shapes. I think you are doing an awesome job coloring with Copics!! Just like a pro already!

Your watercoloring on your second card is just as good!!

Awesome job with the post it note holder. . love the image and pretty dp! I don't know how you're able to make so many cards and projects in a day. After I'm done one card, I'm exhausted just looking at the mess I made of my desk that I have no desire to create another card! LOL!

Hope you have an awesome weekend!!
