Workin' at the Car Wash...

Okay, truth?  I was singing the Car Wash song the whole time I was creating this card.  Yes I was lol.  And you will be too now this "earworm" is in your head.  You're welcome.

So... here's a link to the newer Car Wash version by Christina Aguilera for Shark Tales

And here is my creation with Car Wash from Di's Digital Stamp.  I made a pull up gift card holder for hubby for Father's Day and of course HAD TO get a car wash card for it ;-).

Love, love, love this image!!!!

I'm entering in the challenge on Di's Digi Designs Challenge Blog - Summer Theme.

New Facebook Group Welcome

I know what you're thinking... another Facebook Group?!  Yup, Markers!Papers!Digis!  A few digital stamp artists have got together to create a fun, inspirational, drama-free zone for caring and sharing.

So the theme this week is Mermaids and a few of the artists have been introducing themselves each day.  Today (Sunday) is Simply B Stamps and Betty has lovingly drawn Flowing Mermaid and she will be a freebie for a short time.

Here's my card with her.  Hope you like her.

Now this is a young MAN image

I HAD to have this image the second I saw it.  There are so few images for "young men" and this was downright perfect.

Coloured with Copics


Thursday, June 2, 2016


Probably not but I'm having fun.  You know how we never seem to find that "perfect container"?!  Well... I'm always on the search to find the perfect colour "assistant" for my Copics.  I've now created 3 and each one is a little different and useful.  Do I use 'em often?  No.  But the process was fun and relaxing (once I'd wrestled a template I liked) and there's nothing like using your own markers and blending them out.  Some of the combinations I've collected don't blend as well on a small "splotch" but to be fair, it's never over 'til it's over and I often blend back and forth between layers and over layers 'til I get a look I want.

The idea/inspiration for this book came from Rhea's blog and online "share" in our Facebook Group, I immediately had a lightbulb moment and knew I needed to take it a step further (okay... you know I love my Bind-it-all lol).   Copic Colourists/Artists are as caring and sharing a community as my Decorative Painting community.  If you'd like to see more colour ideas and get your own template, go to Passionate Paper Creations and scroll down the right hand side to the "Educational Stuff".  You'll be glad you did and you won't feel guilty and I won't apologize for the time you will spend wandering around her site and the massive amount of information freely shared.

The image I used is perfect for this book, Copic Keri from Simply B Stamps
