A Double Creature Feature!

Hello everyone!  I am here with a project that is doing double duty.  It is my design team day post and Meljen's Designs and I am being featured on the Created from Color website.

I used Zombie Stella and of course colored her with Copics.  I didn't have the greens I wanted for her skin, so I had to improvise and give her a green tinge.  We played Tic Tac Toe for our theme this month and I used Ribbon, Brads, & Pearls.  These are a few of my favorite things!

Created from Color teaches a wonderful Basic Copic class that I just finished.  We had to color an image before any instruction and the same image after completing the class.  They asked if I would allow my before and after images to be featured on the website!  How could I possibly say no?!  I really enjoyed this class and the best part besides the two wonderful instructors, Melissa Andrew and Kristy Dalman (yes...THE Kristy of Some Odd Girl!), was that I could do it at my own pace.  If I wasn't feeling crafty, that was okay.  I could catch up when I was.  Even if you don't want to take the class, check out their website.  They always have great tutorials and inspiration from around the web.

Missing You

With my hubby away, the challenge this week is right up my alley!  Your project must have a Missing You theme.  I wanted to use the newest releases but they were all for Halloween.  What's a girl to do?!  Why get punny of course!

I colored the image, Jar of Eyeballs, using Copic markers.  The sentiment was computer generated because I certainly don't have a stamp THAT punny.  This card will be winging it's way across the Atlantic to my special someone that "eye" can't wait to see!!

Harvest Bounty

The theme at Meljen's Designs is Anything Goes.  This is always a favorite since you can do whatever you want.  Just make sure you use a Meljen's Designs image!

This image is Harvest Bounty, one of the new images in the shop.  I colored it using Copic markers.  I struggled a little trying to get this card to come together, but I am pretty happy with the final result.
