Broken heart

Good morning. My creation today is one that I made a week or so ago for a friend using Strong and Beautiful. The blooms and greenry are stamped around the edges and colored with various Copic markers. 

Stamped my sentiment and added a few jewels around the edge. I then layered the image panel onto some designer paper before adding to the pink base and celery layers. I do have sparkles added to the petals yet hard to see in the photo. Voila!

Beach taffy

Hello all. Well I have to say we just got back a few days ago from a fun filled week at the beach and it was AWESOME! Everyone came back relaxed, energized and geared up for the rest of our summer. The house we stayed in was fantastic and we plan to rent it again next year. I opened our slider to the bedroom we were in and didn't close it until we left. The sound of the ocean was PERFECT!!! Oh man was it ever fun this year. Anyways.... 
I did buy a few bags of  fresh salt water taffy for some of the girls and thought a tag would be perfect to attach to them. I used Best Day Ever for these tags.

The image is colored with various Copic markers and then die cut with a Whiff Of Joy die light. Before I added it to the die cut base I used my aqua brush and splattered some brown, green and blue to the tags so it wasn't so white. I know unusual for me to not have all the white but I wanted it to be less clean feeling. ha ha  Stamped the sentiment and added an enamel dot to the corner. Finished it off with some sparkle and tied it off to the bags. Voila!

I used Strong and Beautiful for my card today. Placing several of the stamps on one block and then stamping all around the panel to create a background. Used Copic markers to color in the letters and leaves. Some diamond texture for the back panel to match the hint of diamond designer paper behind the image panel. I really am digging this sketch as of late if you hadn't noticed.  :-)  Some sparkle added to the sentiment circle and some piercing to the tab. Voila!
