I am so sorry I've been MIA the past month or so. Actually, just missing, no action. I don't know if my mojo totally abandoned me or I just go burned out, but it certainly has been a creative desert in my studio. Good news, that spell might be over! Yesterday I colored four images and made four cards, so the next few days I have new posts! Woo hoo!
My son's birthday starts in 31 minutes, as I write this. I am actually at his new house in Bellevue, NE for a couple of days to celebrate with him and his fiance. I arrived to a delicious lasagna dinner, then a rousing game of Phase 10. Below is the card I made for him. Many of his birthdays have been near a beach or on a ship, but since he is land-locked for a few years I thought he might like a beach scene. This was made possible by Mo Manning's fun new digital images Beach Elements and Surfer Dude.
The background and sand castle are from the Beach Elements collection and I added Surfer Dude. These made a very fun image! The whole scene is colored with Copics. I kept the design simple but colorful. The collection of sea shells has been sitting in my embellies cabinet for ages and made a nice finishing touch here.
Here's a close-up of the sand castle.
And here is Surfer Dude himself. I merged the images together and the possibilities are endless. In fact, you will see another beach scene in the coming days. I just don't have that one colored yet.
Thanks for stopping by today and sticking with me. I feel myself coming out of this slump and I hope for good! Have a great weekend, everyone!
