Some More Cards...

Below are some other cards I made with some of my other images that you can find and purchase at Paper Cupcakes, my new digital stamp store. These images are exclusive only to Paper Cupcakes.

This first Image is called "Praise Him" and I must say this is one of my personal favorites. I actually made this image because I have a friend that plays the guitar and so I drew it so I could make her this birthday card. I colored this image with my Bic Mark-its. I loved how the blue and yellow turned out on her dress. I also took my white uni-ball pen and added some white lines on the bottom part of her dress to make it a little more dramatic with lines. I had the black ink lines, but wanted them to be a bit more apparent at first glance and truly loved how her dress turned out. I did color her guitar with colored pencils though, I wanted the look that the colored pencil gave me for her guitar, plus I feel like I have more control over the blending with my pencils and wanted a smooth overall blend with a softness. I was pleased with the overall card and must say this one is one of my favorites I have made.

This image is called "Small Orchid" and I colored it with my colored pencils. Colored pencils will always be one of my favorite mediums to color things with and I have yet to add any of the blending oils. Although I must say I have purchased some to try them out, but I just have never found myself reaching for them. I truly enjoy the blending aspect within the pencil lead itself.

The following are some more Christmas cards I made with more of my images that were not freebies and can also be found at Paper Cupcakes. I colored all of the below with my Bic-mark its as well, except the polar bear which I used a light blue colored pencil for the softness.

These are all so beautiful! I love them all! The mittens are darling, the praise him is so calming, they are all gorgeous. I still color with my Koh-I-Noor pencils and low-odor mineral spirits for blending. Can't make myself pay for the expensive markers when the pencils do so well! Great job on every card, dear friend!!! TFS!
