Coloring with Copics

Yeah for the Saints!

My son had a volleyball tournament this past weekend and I had a little down time between his matches. (They lost most of their games but played well)

I had stamped a bunch of little girls to practice coloring with my copics. When I was finished with the coloring I decided to create cards from the girls that I thought turned out enough to put on a card. :)
Here is my series of girl cards. I am going to send them off to the Cards for Kids Drive that Jennifer McGuire is hosting. (Except the first one as my DD saw the little girl before I placed her on a card and asked to have her. I made the first card for Tanya.

I was struggling to do something different and had an idea to put her on a swing.I made one blond girl and probably could have done a little more blending on her hair.

Last but not least a sponged background to blend the purple and yellow combo.


Hope you enjoyed my ensemble of girls. The stamps are all Hero Arts and the little girl is from the Hero Arts Sparkle Design You're the Best. The pattern paper is Basic Grey and the cardstock Bazzill.
Have a lovely Monday!

  5. Hola, Suz!, hace solo un mes que falto y es increible todo lo que has publicado, tengo que verlo todo despacio, PRECIOSOS TRABAJOS. Con tus fondos o coloreando los sellos, siempre son obras de arte. Ahora estoy bastante pasiva y no he hecho nada, espero que viendo tus maravillas me anime. Bss.
