tags download

Today's fun at PTI is a challenge to create cards using a free tag download (link here).  I finally have a printer the can handle card stock, so coloring images with my Copics is in the realm of possibility.  How strange it is to make a notecard with no stamping though!

My dear college friend was over yesterday for crafting and an ayurvedic dinner, but we talked the whole time and got nothing done :)  I asked what colors she wanted for a card set and she chose a lovely range of blues.

I'm in love with Maile Belle's pinwheels and started with this image first.  (Sorry to report there's gorgeous weather in San Diego and the card's a bit washed out).

On this image, I finally busted out the Copic airbrush gun I got for Christmas - LOVE it!!!  Unfortunately, the camera didn't pick up up the double white stitching around the edges.

xoxo,
Christy

Ok, I had to actually google 'ayurvedic' to see it's definition. So what would be on an ayurvedic menu? Interesting.
I digress.
