Friends-Sister & Brother

After two weeks in Texas visiting my daughter and her family, I have returned home for much needed rest.
Today I sat down and finally did a card using brother Edwin and sister Tilda purchased from Stampingscapping.  I stamped the image onto crossstitch material to see what it would look like.  I used copic markers to color with.  Didn't blend as easily but it didn't turn out bad.  I used SU ink to give the edgessome color and I used it on the paper behind the images.  I cut the oval with my scalloped ovals and cuttlebug.  The ribbon is a sheer with polka dots from Walmart.  Flowers are primas.  Cardstock is from SU.

Bewitching Hour Tilda

Bewitching Hour Tilda
I have been over a week trying to get this card done for the SSC for Halloween. 

First of all my hubby called an ambulance to take me to ER room at our local hospital, which I have no memory of, late Wed night on the 15th and on the 16th i was transfered to St. Vincent heart care center In Indianapolis, In. where they did a heart cath.  After a few test they didn't find any reason for the chest pains and sent me home.  Just now getting some of my strength back.  Anyway here is the card I made using an image from an image swap.  Altered Tilda into a witch with her kettle where she makes spells.  The kettle, cat, spider and the clouds were stick ons.  I used tiny red pearls for the eyes on the spider,bat and cat.  Papers used were from my stash.  I stamped the saying inside with small stamps from a dollar bin at Michaels.  Copics I used were E00,000,0000 for the skin.  Tilds hair and dress and shoes were done with C9,7,5 and 3.  Ovals were cut using my Cricut and lacy labels cartridge.

This is another little Tilda used from the image swap.  This was a little out of my comfort zone as far as the papers go.  I don't usually mix pinks and orange, but the patterned paper had them together so I thought why not.  Again I didn't keep track of the copics used.  The flowers are primas and paper is SU and DCWV.

Tilda writing in diary

I made this card with an image from an image swap I was in.  The papers are from DCWV and the flowers are ones I made using the  Sizzix Bigz 3-D die.  Didn't keep track of the copics used as my hubby broke his left wrist and had to have surgery, so things have been hectic here.  I used turq. half pearls.  The oval was cut with nestabilities and the larger oval was done using the Lacy Labels from Cricut.

Shadow Box Picture

Have you ever been lying in bed and had an idea come to you? Well this is the result of one of mine.  I did this using a picture of my daughter and her husband taken on a cruise.  The colors and everything are what I had envisioned.  I made the red roses and the black and silver flowers are fabric fancies. I used a dark gray paper and black to mat the picture and a lighter gray for the flourishes.
