Keeping Cool....

Keeping Cool with Lawnscaping.  It is challenge time and what is more fun then lots of color.

I have to say that I so love my Copic Sketch Markers.  I recently tried a different alcohol based marker and it did not compare.  Copic's have a nice flow and I love them.  It is a great investment for sure. Although I have seen people color with color pencils and am so fascinated how amazing they can blend the colors.  I have not tried...maybe one day. 


Recipe:  Lawn Fawn Say Cheese and Swimsuit Season, Copic Sketch markers, Neenah white card-stock, Echo Park Designer Paper, Scotch advanced tape glider and Recollection foam adhesives.
I am keeping this short since I have already posted earlier today, but I had to join the Lawnscaping Color Challenge and the rest of the week is full of post already.  
I am a busy crafty girl but I LOVE IT.  
Thank you all for the awesome support...

  12. Both cards are amazing, Annette! And I do love copics too!!!! Now I only has less than 20 copics, but soon I will have more =)

    For the 1st card, I love the polka dot background and the banner. Love the image too, the two sandals below make the overall design cuter.

    And for the other card, the two animals are so adorable. Love the overall design and those clouds are so sweet.

  19. First, congrats on your publication! Yeah--I'm so happy for you! It's super cute. Second, I am in love with the fun colors in your beach card. The faux stitching is really cute, too. It's good to read the feedback on other alcohol-based pens (I've wondered about some of the others). If you want a good tut on colored pencils, check out Danielle Daws--she has a tutorial that is really helpful.
