PolyChromo Pencils and a Baby Card!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning friends!
By the time this is posted I will be taking off for San Francisco! I am nervous and excited all at the same time!  My life has changed so much the last few months and I am finally starting to enjoy the free time I have.  (And not feel guilty as many of us moms do). I know my girl is happy and well taken care of. My heart is finally in a better place.
So soon, I will be like a honeymooner with my hubby, exploring California.
Before I left I created this card for my neighbor who just had a baby boy.
I have been having so much fun pulling out old stamps that have been collecting dust for years.
This one is by Whipper Snapper.

I used my Polychromo pencils to color the image and create the tile background, along with a white gel pen. The tag was given a wash of water colors using my Zig markers.  I added a bit of ribbon and a few Dew Drops. Oh! and a bit of sparkle to the bubbles using Stickles.

Water Colors and Stencils!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning my friends!  
Remember yesterday I said I had to pack?
Yea, haven't done it yet.
Total slacker!  I need to get it done today or I will be visiting San Francisco in the same outfit for 5 days! ;)
I am up on the SRM blog today with this card.  I used this cool background stamp and embossed it in white. (And have no idea what company makes the stamp.....I looked, no name). I colored it in with my Zig Markers.

I layered a sun stencil over it and applied clear texture paste.  I sprinkled it with a glittery embossing powder and heat set it after it was dry.  I wanted to add a bit of depth to the rays, so I went back over it with my Zig marker in gray.  
I cut two pinking edge circles and water colored those as well.  I added SRM's Summer Sentiment.
For a finishing touch I added some white dots with a gel pen and adhered a few sequins.

Watercolors, Diecuts, and Stamps! (Oh My!)

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning to you!! I am having a bit of coffee and computer time before I head upstairs to pack.  San Francisco is pretty cool, so sweaters and jackets are on my list!
I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today.  
Coffee=Liquid Sanity!
yep.  :)

I used a stamp set by JustRite and water colored it using my Zig Markers. I layered everything using Crafty Foam tape and DODZ™. (My absolute favorite "go to" products!)
The twine is from The Stamp Simply store. (My other favorite place to get ribbon and twine!)
