ey you! I am sure you are enjoying the break. Kids out of school and proud parents are celebrating the culmination of years of their babies work..well theirs too! As a friend said…I am also graduating : ) after all this year of tutoring. . Well more to come. A chapter is completed and many many more beautiful chapter are to come in the lives of these kids! Congrats Grads!
My project today is all about graduation. I created this card as a gift for a very dear girly…she just finished HS and will be off to college soon. Guess what her favorite color is? HA my fear factor color…PURPLE. LOL. Yes I have not yet passed of my purple fear. I still do not get why. I like this color on others and things…but never pick an item in purple for me hehe. I guess my friends, and I seriously say that 4 out of 5 LOVES purple, will get anything I thing is cute in purple.
I used Gilli Graduate for this project. One little adaptation I extended her little original hair to match my friend’s hair (gorgeous and smart…oy that is dangerous lol).
All the papers are from Paper Temptress. People, you must get by Patricia’s store. Some specialty papers that you will NOT find in your mega craft store. And they give that extra bam you need in your cards/projects. Just check that distress..and the columns of the paper. This paper also picked the inks very nicely allowing me to create a super personalized background. I am not going to even mention that the weight of these Pop tones papers are perfect for creating layers (and match the inks out there folks!!).
For coloring I used my faithful copics and my multiliners. I have been coloring less then I would like to …but OH I love my markers LOL. I know you understand me..’cause most people..don’t.
I guess I will need a few more occasions to get my card making kick up to speed!
I am so glad you stopped by..Leave a hello if you feel like it…I say I have been missing my craft buddies : ).
More project to come..sooner then you think .
Love to you all!
