Just a quick card to share. I feel bad that the poor blog has been neglected lately. Patrick and I are still sharing the computer which just doesn't leave me much time. I now realize I do most of my blog reading and creating in the mornings and don't have access to a computer then. We finally sent his computer off to Utah to be fixed and hopefully will have it back in about two weeks. I am counting down the days till it's all mine again.
This card was for a Food and Drink themed swap by Jennie. I stamped the watermelon on Whisper White cardstock and colored with my copics. The rind is actually created by one green copic marker. I kept layering the color on certain parts to give it a deeper color. I love that they can do that which tearing the paper. I doodled the ground to give it something extra. And you can't be a "lady" bug with some sparkle so I used my spica glitter pen on the bugs lashes, antennae, and spots as well as the watermelon seeds. It's shimmers in real life.
For this card: Ladybug Picnic, Green Galore, Real Red and Whisper White cardstock, DP paper all from Stampin' Up!, Ribbon from A Muse, Copic markers
