We are sponsored this month by Delicious Doodles, home of some fantastic digi images. Teri is offering 4 digis of the winner's choice for our randomly-selected participant. Lucky you! I will be using a DD image later this month.
Our friends, Ellie & Ed, are celebrating their anniversary on the 18th. So this challenge fit perfectly into my plans for cards! Isn't it nice when things work out that way...
I had a really fun lunch with Ellie yesterday at Paradise Bakery and gave her this card. I think she liked it--it does say 'Happy Anniversary' on the inside. I wanted to use an image of a drummer, as Ed is a great one, and he enjoys playing in a band. I found the perfect image at Make It Crafty, so I combined it with a singer image, and voila! I used Drummer-Dude and Rockstar-Singer. I would give you the exact links, but Make It Crafty is temporarily closed for maintenance. They expect to reopen tomorrow. Awkward...
I merged my two images and printed them on X-Press It BC. I colored them with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
His Hair: W0, W2, W4, W6
Her Hair: W4, W6, W8, W10
Cymbals: YR21, YR24, YR27
Drums: W0, W2, W4, W6, W8
Clothing: B01, B02, B04, B06, W0, W2, W4, W6
I added a bit of Pearl Pen to the background, then used my Zutter for the image and the DP--which I took from the Authentique Journey and Carta Bella Noted collections. My CS is from Stampin' Up. And, of course, I had to use some die cuts, made from the following:
Memory Box Treble Clef
Memory Box Musical Interlude
MFT Musical Notes
That's it for this week. Carla, Dawn, Kathi, and I are hoping you will color up an image for a wedding or anniversary card and play along with us. You can use any brand of alcohol markers, and you can be at any level of expertise. Don't be shy! Please check out the cool creations by my teammates.
I am still reading like crazy, so haven't yet gone through my photos from Kaua'i. I will, I will, I promise. (Just don't know when yet.)
Hope you have a great weekend!
