Mondays, Techniques and Free Downloads

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday!
Sorry about my post...somehow my graphic didn't work.

Today promises to be a beautiful day with Sunshine Pictures, Images and Photos!! Yippee!!

I have 2 cards to share with you today, one for the technique on SCS, the other for my Monday challenge with a group of friends. Here's my CCEE's our "Catchy Name Featured Stamper", "Imamuttnut" was our our card had to have a dog on it!
This image is by Inky Antics. I just love Janie Miller's style...her animals are too cute! It's colored with Prismacolor pencils (I'm trying to use them more to save my Copics! lol!) blended with baby oil. That cute doggy paper is a pack I picked up at Big Lots for....are you ready.. a buck! It's 8x8 sheets to boot! It's called Zippy Bow Wow Meow by Sue Zipkin...too cute!


The technique on SCS today is the Bandana Technique, basically stamping...or in this case printing! onto colored cardstock and using your stamped images as your guide as you dot and dash your way around your designs.

I used this FREE "doodled" digital image from Mel...sheesh, sure wish I could doodle like that!
Thanks Mel!!

Prism Nautical Blue, Georgia Pacific White and My Mind's Eye were my papers of choice today. Inkssentials White gel pen on the flowers and Elmer's Paint stick around the edges. I used Copics on the colored flowers and colored my ribbon to match.WINK Pictures, Images and Photos
Pretty simple and quick to throw together! Some days you need that! LOL!
Hope it's wonderful where you are today....Enjoy the day!!
Thanks for stopping!
