Knit 1, Purl 2

I have a very dear friend who lives in the Atlanta area, and we tend to 'enable' each other in our crafting hobbies. Cathy got me back into stamping--so I got her back into knitting! So when I saw this great little Karen Lockhart image (available at Ellen Hutson's store)--I just HAD to have it! I love love love her images, and they are great fun to color!
I'm not sure where I got the large eyelets, but they worked great to add some yarn to the card.
I found some great coordinating stamps in the new Stampin' Up! catalog in a set called "Hand Knit", which worked perfectly to finish off the inside of the card.

I don't have the list of Copic markers I used, but the papers are by GeorgiaPacific (white) and Prism (brown and kraft).

Sweet Birthday Wishes!

Friends, I apologize for neglecting my blog the past few months--life has been a whirlwind getting ready for my son's wedding! I'll be posting pictures of the invitations and programs, and all the other things I made for the wedding, in a few weeks.
For today, though--here is a sweet little card I made for my dear friend's birthday in July. Once "Tilda Holding Lilacs" was colored (Copic colors listed below), I masked her off and airbrushed a light sky background, and a pale green ground. (Still practicing with airbrushing, but I'm getting a little more comfortable with it!)
I used a grass stamp from Judith Stamps to complete the scene, and highlighted the lilacs and the area around Tilda with Stardust Stickles.
Hope you enjoy seeing this little card as much as I did making it!
