Two Cards & a Tag


Hello again ~ I'm back to post a few cards and a tag. I have to begin with an apology, as we have had overcast skies for the past several days, and I had to take my photos with a Light Box...no Bueno :)

My first card is for this week's Sketch Challenge at the MFT Blog:




I used Copic markers to color the fun little Elf and Christmas tree and mounted everything onto the fabulous embossed panel, sent to me by my sweet friend, Michele! Thanks again, Michele...the pattern and texture works so well with the elements on this card :)

My next card is for the current Tag You're It Challenge


I am swooning over Loll's tag...well actually, I feel that way about everything she creates! Here is my take on her tag:


I love her tag so much, that I actually CASE'D everything...the Northern Lights Sky with splattering, her color palette, and all the sparkle she added to her tag. I also spritzed a touch of  Perfect Pearls in water to add a shimmery effect to the sky. Very sparkly IRL :) Here's a close-up:

My last card is for the CAS on Sunday Challenge for the theme 'Christmas':


How sweet is this little Shephard Boy...LOVE!!! I'm a sucker for anything with a Nativity theme, so I grabbed my Copic markers and got busy. I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and added clear EP for shine. No glitter, no gems, no enamel dots...Just a CAS card ~

So, that's it for me...thanks for hanging in there! If the sun peeks through in the next few days, I'll be back to replace these with better pics :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Beautiful colouring on your adorable elf and tree, Barb. I agree the embossed b/ground looks amazing as does your tag. A lovely take on Loll's tag, love the dreamy background and all the sparkle and your little shepherd is very sweet.

Barb, you have been busy! Your two cards and the tag are all so lovely. The Tag really caught my eye...that northern lights background is very intriguing. And your first card's elf he is darling and I love your color choices..the blue bottoms really make that red pop! Then there is your darling lil Sheppard...so sweet.

I don't think there is another MFT set I love more than these little elves, Barb ... quite at home in those frosty branches - and you are most welcome!! Your tag is gorgeous, but can we talk about this little Shepherd Boy? How absolutely darling is he?! A terrific trio of creations today, Barb!
Plenty of sunshine heading your way!! It was in the 50's today!!! xx

What a wonderful trio of craftiness, Barb. I love those elves and that shepherd boy is darling, both beautifully colored. The northern lights on your tag give it such a light and bright feel.

Love that wee elf - he is adorable and beautifully coloured! Lovely post :-)

Loll said...

Hi Barb. Looks like you have been busy having fun!! :) That elf and tree are just ADORABLE!! Great colouring with Copics, and such a fun design with the beautiful background panel from Michele. Aren't stamping friends the best??!! And your shepherd is so sweet. Perfect with the soft colours, again expertly done in Copics. Last, but not least, am loving your tag. The Northern lights sky, the sweet snowy covered house and tree ... so pretty with lots of sparkle. Thanks for CASEing my tag at Tag You're It! xx
