Buried Treasure

This is a quick card that I made up for some very good friends that will be hosting a pirate party at the end of March. 

The stamps are digital and are from Make It Crafty.  This site has some really awesome digital stamps and incredible coloring.  Zoe is truly an inspiration. 

Although I did color this quite quickly, I ended up using a lot of different colors.  The Copics that I used are, V 22, 25, 28; E 35, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50, 55, 57; Y 11, 15; C 1, 3, 5, 7; B 91, 93; YG 61, 63, 67, 91, 93; YR 23; Y 23.

There may be some colors missing but I tried to keep track and all of the main colors are listed.  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

Here's a close up of the coloring.  I am not unhappy with it but I certainly should have spent a lot more time on all of the details.  I definitely would like to hear what you think of it.

The phrase on the inside is also from  Make It Crafty and I just printed it off on the computer.

Learning to layer the digital images and printing and sizing and all that jazz has definitely proven an interesting learning curve.  I love my rubber stamps but I think I will be using the digitals a lot now.

Just Kiss Me

I have created a new card for several of the challenges that I like and follow.  This one is going to be entered at:

Mad for Markers - Pink or red; use R or RV Copics
7 Kids College Fund - Red/Pink and White
Just Magnolia - Pink and Pearls and Lace
Simply Magnolia - Red and/or pink with white
One Crazy Stamper - Love Is In the Air
Simon Says Stamp - Love Is In the Air
Let's Ink It Up - Ribbons and Lace

Okay so now here is how this grew.  I stamped Tilda kissing and masked her off and then stamped Edwin.  Papers are Basic Grey and Bazzill;  flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts; lace and ribbon were from the stash pile; clear corners are from stash also and pearls are Kaiser Craft.

Coloring with Copics and as follows:
Tilda's hair - E 25, 55, 31, 30
Tilda's dress - RV 52, 55; R 56
Tilda's sleeves - R 81, 83, 85
Tilda's socks - E 41, 42, 43 and light R's or RV's (can't remember and I forgot to write this one down)

Edwin's hair - E 29, 25, 31
Edwin's vest - G 40, 43, 46
Edwin's shirt - E 41, 42, 43, 44
Edwin's pants - E 23, 25, 27
Edwin's socks - G 40, 43, 46
Skin on both are E 50, 000, 21, 00 and R 30

One of the inside for you.  The stamp is from Magnolia Ink and I heat embossed it.  The heart is a Spellbinders die.

Here's one close up of the coloring.

I would love to hear what you think of this creation and have a Happy and Loving Valentine's Day!
