My new favorite things

So, although no one reads this, I will still post some things that I am thinking. I am thinking right now that I really like these Prismacolor markers. The colors are so fun and look great when I color in my stamped images. They also are dual-ended, with a broad and a fine tip (pic from prismacolor website).

I am waiting for a big sale so I can buy the sets... but for now I have been getting the individual colors (trying to avoid the ones in the sets). So far I have:
  • Crimson Red
  • Clay Rose
  • Pale Vermillion (orange)
  • Tulip Yellow
  • Green Tea
  • Jade Green
  • Light Cerulean Blue
  • Peacock Blue
  • Grayed Lavender
  • Light Umber (brown)
  • Cocoa Bean
  • Brick Beige (skin tone)
  • Colorless Blender (supposed to soften edges between different colors)
Most are muted or light tones since I rarely like bright, especially since I'm new at crafting. I made my goal, however, of having at least one pen in each major color group!

Another Card

Hello. I just wanted to share another card I made. I was for a friend's friend's spring wedding. I used a small tag, vellum and glittery stickers to make it fancy. I tried to keep the colors light but keep it fun. Hope you like it! P.S. The scanner isn't so good and I don't use a camera.

Card Making

I recently started making my own greeting cards. I found that I was paying way too much for them in stores (although I still can't help buying totally amazingly fun ones) and decided to start making my own. The owner of Paperdoll, a local card and art shop (SE 79th and Stark) really helped me get going and constantly is giving me new ideas and tips! So I just wanted to post one card that I made. I haven't sent many out so I have to post one that I gave away as a gift. Anyway, it's simple but I think it's cute.

So, tell me what you think and send some tips if you have them!
