I have been remiss about commenting on blogs for the past two weeks. But I have a very good excuse. I was on vacation with Gary in Kaua'i. We left on Monday, the 5th and returned on the Wednesday, the 21st. (After another over-night flight, which just takes it all out of me since I cannot sleep sitting up on a plane.) I am amazed I got my card done yesterday; of course, I didn't photograph it until today, so I am a bit late in that department, for which I sincerely apologize.
I will do some blogging about our trip, which included some fabulous food and drinks, and a wonderful anniversary dinner on the 9th. Our 44th, which I think I mentioned in a previous post. However, all that will have to wait until another post.
Today I want to mention that this month's sponsor, Ditzie Digi Design, is giving away 3 digis for first prize, 2 digis for second prize, and 1 digi for third prize. All prizes will be randomly-selected from our May participants. So be sure to get your images colored and cards created this week! We look forward to seeing your creations each and every week. We ask that you use any brand of alcohol markers for your coloring, and we encourage every skill level to enter.
I chose DDD How Do for my image this week. She's fun to color, but a bit complex, and I certainly didn't leave myself enough time to get her ready for today. Again, my apologies...
My steampunk image was printed on X-Press It BC and then colored with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E30, YR31, YR21
Glasses/Wings/Sleeve: W00, W0, W1
Hat/Outfit: BG02, BG05, BG07, BG09
Trim/Straps: YR23, YR27, E19
Metallics: YR30, YR31, YR21
Hearts: YR04, YR07, YR09
Spica Gold accents
I added two Cheery Lynn Gears die cuts and a bow of Stampin' Up ribbon for my embellishments. My DP is from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection; it was Zutterized and paired with SU cardstock. My Create with TLC sentiment was mounted using MFT Fishtail Flags Stax die cuts. And that's it for this week.
Please check out the fabulous creations by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, and Kathi! We would really love to have you play along with us this week! The more, the merrier! Looking forward to seeing what you create!
I promise to get to your blogs to comment ASAP. Hope you have a great weekend! (We are going to Binkley's tonight for Arizona Restaurant Week. What a great way to come back from vacation, huh?)
