MDUC #140

This week at MDUC we are celebrating EASTER!  We'd love to see your Magnolia Easter cards and in this case I used the new "Princess of the Valley" image with the Easter lily.  CUTE?!!  Yup.
I even drew in the stone wall she's sitting on!  OMG I was so happy with how it turned out as I don't draw very often.  Even my stickmen are atrocious.  LOL!  I also followed the sketch in the Magnolia Ink 2nd edition on page 66 created by Alberto.  Nice sketch!

MDUC #138 and CLP Sketch

I`m a bit short of time this month so I thought I would combine both the MDUC challenge and this month`s CLP sketch challenge and what a wonderful combo it turned out to be!! 

This week at MDUC we are challenging you to use old treasure and recycle items such as corrugated cardboard, screws or whatever is unusual for your creation.  So you`re looking at mine thinking ok what has she used?

The ribbon is from a pair of laze around pants that I cut off because it was prettier to use for cards and I never tied it up anyway.  LOL!!  I tell you since the day I bought them I knew exactly where it was all going.  In my craft room!  LMBO!  

Check out this gorgeous sketch!!  You still have 16 days left to enter this challenge for the month and who can`t use a sketch?!! 

I just wanted to mention that I tried the Scandinavian way of coloring using Copics....yes Copics!!  I used Suzanne Dean`s tutorials and wow they were very very helpful!!  I also used Camilla and Kim for  inspiration so I had to hand out credit to those amazingly talented women.  I must say this is one of my favorite cards that I`ve made in awhile and I think that`s because I learned something new and it worked!! 

I`m going to enter my card into the following challenges:
