I love cookies!
Just check out my cookie pin board on Pinterest:) 
These owls are no exception.  They have such fun, bright colors on them.



I've used these colors to create a set of cards for my Mother-In-Law.  I stamped each flower onto its die cut shape and then accented each flower with a shadow colored with Copics.  I first saw this technique done by Amber.  She used colored pencils.  I decided to try Copics and see how it would turn out and I love it!




Have a great day!

Stamps: PTI Rosie Posie, Sending You, Handmade Hodgepodge

  4. These cards are so good that Joyce posted twice! I think they are so elegant and could not have been a better take on the color inspiration picture. I love that you made it a set and that belly band really compliments the cards themselves.

  13. I keep forgetting to incorporate Handmade Hodgepodge with the limitless layers: oval dies; they coordinate so well, and I love the Rosie Posie details you used on the edges!

    I love the extra bit of dimension you created by varying the layers. It appears like a beautiful bouquet of flowers ready to jump off the card front!
