Busy Doing Nothing

A couple of weeks ago I was looking thru a merchant's catalog that had various stamp companies.  I spotted this little girl picking flowers and had to have it.  This is a first for me from this stamp company but I loved the dress and the profile of the little girl and just knew it would color up nicely using the Copic markers.  I colored the whole image using the Copic markers.  Then I stamped the jar of flowers on a scrap piece of card stock, colored it, and then trimmed it out.  I covered the jar with Glossy accents and when dry added Flower soft accents and popped it up with dots..
It's after midnight now so I am calling it quits for the evening.  Tomorrow is card workshop at Powdersville Community Church with the Truly Laughing Stampers.  Good night bloggers....

Best Witches

Sorry it has been so long since my last posting.  Life gets in the way sometimes.  No excuses.  So moving on, here is a card I made from a Penny Black stamp called "Treatin' Witch".  I just thought it was so cute.  I used an extraordinary amount of markers....sorry about that....but the image just seemed to require it.  I hope you like my version.  The "Best Witches" stamp is an old PSX but I have seen that saying used by other companies so you should be able to find it.
