52 Card Pickup - Week 30

Old Back Porch
Thanks to everyone that joined in last week on my twenty-ninth week of cardmaking for the year.  My goal for this year is to make one card a week, giving me 52 cards at the end of the year.  I like to find challenges online to inspire me, but that doesn't mean you have to do the same!  I just want to see what all you fabulous card makers out there come up with on a weekly basis.  No rules, just sharing the fun of making our own cards!

I had lots of great suggestions for using more compatible ink for Copic coloring.  I did try to dry the ink I used with the heat gun, but it still smeared.  I ended up getting Adirondack archival ink to use in the future, so we'll see how that goes.

This week, I used the sketch from CPS:





and the color combo from the Play Date Cafe:




to create this little card:

Credits:  Neenah cardstock; Basic Grey papers; American Crafts wood veneer birds; Distress Ink
 Before you ask me where I got the sentiment, I typed it out in a Word document and printed it on the Basic Grey paper...easy!

Now it's your turn...I can't wait to see what gorgeous creations you link up this week!

  16. I also use Memento ink for my Copics. Be careful with the Adirondack, someone told me that it stains your pens but I haven't tried so couldn't say if it does/doesn't! What a 'tweet' card! Seriously a really fun idea, love it! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe!

  17. Love your take on the sketch! The birds are sweet and I love that you made your own cute senitment. I made my own sentiment too on the birthday card I linked up for this week. But I did mine with stamps. I'm sure your way was faster. I wanted the sentiment to match the wrapping paper I used to wrap the present. It said "So many candles, so little cake" Thought it was good for a 50th birthday. Hee Hee.
