Pearl Lotus Syren by Lacy Sunshine

Happy New Year's Eve!!!
Today is the start of a new challenge at
 Challenge: All Things New
I am sharing a NEW TECHNIQUE using
 Using my Copic markers- I colored the background.  I wanted to give the illusion of a 
sunset and the water...then blended them.  Since Copic's are alcohol based- I used 
a some rubbing alcohol from my medicine cabinet and some Q-Tips to "pick up" some
ink.  It is very simple and effective- just dab as much or as little of the tip in the alcohol and dab it
on the paper...play around and see what works for you.
 I also added some Glossy accents in the water and the globe in her hand- Love how this effect
looks.  Gives a lot of texture and depth. Another NEW thing on this card is my embossing folder.

I am sharing TWO cards for this special Blog Post-

 I made a birthday card for my sister with this cutie.  She is a Starbuck's girl- Chai Tea 
everyday!!!  So this was just perfect.
A close up view- colored with Copic's.

My second card is Butter Blue by Barbara Jensen 
available at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet 

 This was a challenge to work with- and that is why I wanted to color her.  I love her
hair and eyes.  I thought she would be perfect in a Steampunk style.  I even
used W3 on her cheeks and lips.
Please leave a comment and I will draw a winner- I will send this card and
an envelope full of goodies!!!

Star Light by Artbymiran

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!
It is my turn to host over at the Artbymiran Showcase Blog.
I am sharing Star Light with you today.

 I have created an 8x8 canvas...I was a little worried how to approach this task...then decided to make 
a card design, of sorts.  I used some background, layering paper on the gold canvas...then
placed the image where I wanted it.  As with a card, I added a bow, and a sentiment and some embellishments.
 I had to go on to Pinterest to find out how to make this bow... and I am very pleased with the outcome.
 A view of the depth of the canvas-  perfect for a new wall hanging.


I would like to invite you to join in our challenges on Facebook and the 
challenge BLOG.  If you are in need of a new image to play with- please visit
