Sketchy Mudd Puddles


First I want to apologize for that huge blog hop post! How it ended up 3 times is beyond me! Grrrrrr, in edit it all looked normal...just ONE! Sorry!


So, for today, I did the sketch on Splitcoast (yea, Granny Rox is back in the saddle!), and I used some Mudd Puddles I hadn't played with yet. To me it looked like pavement, something a toolbox would look good on!

SC277 Powerful and Effective Happy Father's Day from Our Daily Bread designs is colored with Copics... HEY GUESS WHAT!! I'm finally getting Certified!! Yup, Friday I'm meeting up with my old friend Lori Craig for the class! Whoop!!
Ok...back to the card... then I smeared Versamark over it, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. Intensifies the color and makes it easy cutting! *wink*
SC277 toolboxI wanted to show you how pliable the Mudd Puddles is even though it's rock hard when it dries. Here's the strip before I put it on the card.

SC277 MP pliableI had it bent more, but needed more hands to keep it from sproinging back!!! LOL

SC277 closeup1This particular one is called Midnight Bay. Cool, huh!

Probably going to be pretty quiet here for a couple of days... but be on the look out for Musical pics... Li'l Abner this weekend! Jared is Marryin' Sam! And traveling to Indy for the Copic Certifcation!!

Hope you're having a
wonderful day
where ever you might be!!

Thanks for stopping!

This is really cool, Dawn! I'd never heard of that stuff. It sure looks like rock. Super for a manly card.

OuuuulaLA! This is lovely. The scripture is beautiful & the mudd puddles (overly cool.) I'm so excited that you'll be certified. I'm certifiable; does that count? heeheehee Although, I must say that you have a thing or two (or 3/4...) to teach Copic instructors, so it should be a real blast for all concerned! Hope you & Lori have a riot. :-)
