3 for the price of 1

I made three cards this morning and then proceeded to get some more coloring done! My goodness but I am in a productive phase! Good thing as I have a bazillion cards I need for May!! Don't know how soon I will be able to post to my groups, but if you are following me, you will get to see these pretty quick! I tried to name this post something distinctive so you won't have to be coming and going to see the same thing!! First one is a birthday card for a quilter which is why the colors are muted. These are two digital images, both of which were free - sorry I don't remember where. Its done on some of that new Stella and Rose DP.  Hope you like it! It went together so easily - I think the secret is picking out the dp before you color. Then everything matches.
Here are the copics: YR20, YR23, BG72, G29,
E47, C2. The brown dp is just that - not kraft. All the roses are from Wild Orchid.
So here is a new Tilda from the butterfly dreams! She is my absolute new favorite! She is sitting on a kitchen cabinet that I got from Magnolia-icious quite awhile back. I found that I could mask the top part of it off and its much more useable. It is not the easiest thing to color either. But I have the stamp and wanted to find a way to use it. I do like the way it came out and realized that it wasn't quite as hard as I thought. It does take some thought before you color. I have "grounded" all the images I used on all 3 cards. You might not see this one as easily, but its there.
I made that butterfly before I started coloring Tildas! I used to make all of my embellishments as it was so much fun!. Here are the copics I used on this card: E00, E11, E15, E18, E29, R20, RV10, RV13, RV14, V12, V15, V17,V000, C0, C3, B000, B12, B14. Last sale at Michael's, I bought a bunch of satin ribbon 5/8" wide as I decided that I like the bows a bit wider than the ribbon I already had. Hope you like this one! You will have to let me know if you like one card better than the rest! And now I have saved the cutest one for last! This is a digital image also. The proceeds are going to a relief fund for Japan. Much as I would have helped out anyhow, I just had to have this image! I am going to try to get a kabuki type face the next time I color it - you know with the white face? Hope that is what it is called. I just thought how darned cute that would be - I am trying to figure out how to do that without just leaving the paper white - that doesn't have the effect I want. This one is another birthday. The nice thing about the digital is that you can include whatever you want it to say at the same time you print the image.
Isn't she just the cutest?? Here are the copics I used: C1, C2, E31, E33, E35, E37, E49, E77, Y02, YR31, R20, R22, YG03, YG06. I stickled her little fan, the outside of the umbrella and her shoes! That is shabby shutters distress ink around the spellbinders cutout. Now wouldn't she be the cutest with a little white face? How is the thing!! Maybe a very light gray for shadow would give the effect.  That's it for today. Will post these to the groups when I can. Hugs to you all, and thanks for all the nice compliments!!, Barb F
