The bee and sentiment are embossed with Night of Navy craft Ink and clear embossing powder. then I colored it in with a Prisma Pencil. The Primas came from my stash- I was so surprised to find a Navy, yellow AND Kraft flower in the jar. It was like they were just waiting for this color challenge so I could use them. Seriously- I don't have any more Navy flowers left- that is the only one.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you were inspired and will return.

I do think I prefer the OMS to the Baby Oil for blending although both work well. In trying to figure out the technique I have realized that less is more, simpler is better. I was trying TOO hard and achieving fantastic results with the pencils is actually relatively easy.
I chose the fruit image from Stampin Up's For Father set because Jeff is a farmer in addition to everything else he does. Currently, he only farms one acre but starting next year, he will farm at least 50. It's his first love, besides me, of course.
I also used the Faux Wood grain technique on the two panels that I placed following SCS Sketch # 234. I used a leftover scrap to stamp the sentiment on and popped it up with dimensionals. Here's the finished product:
Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, Close to Cocoa, White
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Brads, Dimensionals, Cuttlebug, Weathered Stripes Embossing Folder, Nestablities
I really hope you and Jeff like this card. Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!

Make a card using your favorite (or local) baseball team as inspiration! Our local team is the Norfolk Tides and since their colors also match my son's High School I decided to use their colors for his graduation card.

My Ex-Mother-In-Law recently had hip surgery so I am sending her this basket of flowers which are colored with my PrismaColor pencils. I was originally going to use this week's sketch challenge for the card, but it didn't work out when I tried to put the sentiment on the card so I change my approach.

Sara (she is still recovering from back surgery so she is not posting)
Jimmi chose this photo as an inspiration piece:
I used the colors for my card and I also made it a tall card to reflect the height of the photo. Here is my card:
Next I have a card for my Hip Hop Hangover. This card was also inspired by Jimmi but in a completely different way. Jimmi is a total Television junkie and when this stamp- Unity's Love is Everything came out she mentioned that it should really be named, "TV is Everything." So I made this card with Jimmi in mind. The paper is Stampin' Up Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky and Riding Hood Red. The Designer Paper is from Cosmo Cricket. You can't see it that well in the picture but the TV Screens have Crystal Effects on them to make them look like glass.

I cut the Designer Paper on angle and added faux-stitching. I used my new Cutterbee piercing tool which didn't quite work as well as I had hoped. Oh well- at least it wasn't too expensive. If anyone has one and has some tips to get good piercing with it- feel free to share! I need all the help I can get. ;)
