A place to show all my "ink works" and it's my paradise I'm sharing with you.

Into everyone's life some rain must fall, sometimes. This is the kind of card I am not fond of making. I went into my room to make the card and then decided I really needed to put some stuff away first - you know the procrastination routine?! So I was cleaning and putting things where they belonged and while I was about that, I looked through my stash of colored images. This Tilda couldn't have been more perfect for the card. It just about put itself together!! I bought some - actually a lot - of the new My mind's eye papers and knew the second I looked at Tilda that I had papers to go with her!! This is a really unusual card for me to make since there are no stickles and no paper flowers and the ribbon is so tiny!! I did recently buy a gold pen and used it to make little dashed lines around everything - thought it classed it up a bit. I used two spellbinder's dies and my cuttlebug. I find that I don't use my cricut much anymore. I used to use it a lot before I started coloring. This card had to fit in a standard type of envelope as the recipient is not aware that I make cards. So it is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. That is pretty small. I am not usually so confined. And here are the copics I used: BG01, BG05, BG09, Y17, YG63, YG67, E00, E11, E35, E37, E53, R20, W1, C3, C9. I used Tim Holtz' distress inks, scattered straw and antique linen, around the edges of my cutouts. I also put Tilda on dimensionals. That's about it for this one. Hope you enjoy it as I hope she gives a little comfort to our friend. Hugs to you all! Thank you all so very much for the nice comments! I do really appreciate them. Sometimes I am in a really grumpy mood lately and find how much a nice word lifts me up. I am sure that is true of all of us. Barb F
Nearing 70, a great grandmother and just now turning into a crafter, I found that it is fun to share my scrapbooking type crafts with others. I am always organizing even though I am pretty good about putting things away after I use them. Guess that will be my epitaph, she was an organizer and a scrapbooker/cardmaker.
