Love You, Sugar

I actually have a new card! Messed around with a new way of colouring hair and did all of this in pencils. The sad truth is that, due to my Cystic Fibrosis progressing faster than... well, anyone would like, I'm unable to use my Copics. My lungs are just too sensitive. At this point, I can't even handle the perfume in my face wash or shampoo. Seriously, I can *smell myself* 20 hours after I've showered! It's insanity. And nothing blocks it out, either. Masks, breathers, doing copious amounts of breathing medicine treatments... yeah.

All of this blather means that I'm going to be colouring more in pencils, or other non-smell things. No alcohol, no nothing. What I used for this was my Polychromos and my Distress Inks sponged on to the background. I was even able to wear a mask and melt some embossing enamel. Sequins are in, so I used them, and I used the new lacy flowers that I got recently at the Prima warehouse sale I shared with you a month or so ago.

Anyway, I hope you like this card and I'm sorry there won't be much, or any, Copic work in the future unless something changes dramatically. I'm doing what I can in the way of creation and I'll share with you the pretty stuff as soon as I can!

Falling For Turkey

Okay, I'm going to admit it: Halloween is over. Yes, I know, it's devastating that we must wait an entire year for Halloween to come back. BUT, I have a new project that, funnily enough, I made last year but never shared with you because I made it when *Fall* was over! It's still Fall now, and it's just before Thanksgiving here in the States, so please enjoy this cute little turkey from Some Odd Girl. I really love how this card came out, he's actually a real card too, and I hope you like him too.

Gimme Candy!

I made this entire card today! I'm actually pretty surprised and happy, since it's been a while that I've properly crafty and just finished something! It's also been a while since I coloured something entirely in Copics. No coloured pencils to assist, just Copics and blending. I'm very pleased with how her skin came out in this neat grey. I layered the crap out of this card, which has been made much easier by my cardstock now being very accessible, at eye height even, on my Expedit. I'm really zipping through this Greeting Farm Halloween set, I love it so much, so it was definitely a very good buy. I combined her with some Bo Bunny papers, a sticker sentiment, and a cute little owl. We're still allowed to use owls if it's Halloween, hehe.
