A Few More WOJ Cards from the "Assembly Line"

Well, the term "assembly line" isn't really fair to the creative process. About the only thing I do at one sitting is stamping a bunch of images then spending hours coloring to my little ol' heart's content! Then each image is carefully matched to the papers and embellishments. Unless I am following a sketch for a challenge, each card takes on a life of its own. That is the essence of art in any form, don't you think!

So, this precious little Lizzie fit beautifully with the delicate flowers and swirls of the DP, with just a touch of light teal to frame the lovely sentiment I cut from a piece of DP. The hearts and corner swirl are cut from Cuttlebug dies and Nesties and made the perfect cuts for the image and scalloped border. Lizzie is colored with Copic Sketches and accented with simple pearls.

Angel Melinda love to blow heart kisses, and they just get bigger and bigger as they spread around the world. (Heart stickers from Walmart) This card is simple thanks to a portion of a double-sided piece of Daisy D's cardstock. A touch of glitter paper cut with the scalloped rectangle Nestie frames Melinda. A bit of glitter on her wings and outfit and she is ready to spread her love to someone special. (I'm not real happy with the photo quality here. The glitter paper washes out the bright hues of the Copic Ciaos used to color Melinda's flowing hair and red jeans.)

Teenage Lizzie appears again here, but this time colored in pink and lavender Copics. Scraps of DP and glitter CS surround Lizzie with soft hearts and sparkle. Gentle flowers and pearls are perfect embellishments for lovely Lizzie.

Here Angel Melinda likes big pastels to go with the butterfly sketch on the Daisy D's DP. The card is simple and sweet, just like Melinda.

Well, I have more colored images to match up to more beautiful papers. So there will be more cards to come!

Thank you for stopping by! Leave me a note, too. I always visit bloggers who take time to say hello.

Barb these are absolutely GORGEOUS! You coloring blows me away and I love the cards you've designed with them. I'm now convinced I need Copics AND nesties. The question is, can I wait 'til my b-day in April? (Doubt it....LOL)
