Let's Chill!

Created by Michele Kovack
I missed posting yesterday! ACK!  I tried to be good this week and post EVERY day.....but I failed!
Too much going on this week trying to get last minute doc appts, visiting with friends, getting a tooth fixed...yada yada yada.  You know the drill!
So I am back today with another Suzy Plantamura card.  (ADORE these images!!) I colored this one in with my Zig Clean Color markers.  I added some shadows with gray Copic markers and some sand texture with a white gel pen.

I had this chipboard hello and thought it was perfect for this card.  So as usual Kovack style I added boat loads of glitter to it.  I adhered a few sequins and tied a vertical bow with black twine.

I have my school's open house tonight.  
The reality of school starting is upon me...... ;)
Thank you for stopping even when I'm a total slacker who makes false promises! LOL!

Some Great Advice!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning! Today is day 2 of my "Final Week of Summer....Summer Cards!" ;)  And this one by Suzy Plantamura has the best saying. Ever.  We all claim to be busy.  (myself included) But we need to slow down and take time for the things...or people that are important. 
We all know life is short, but we often forget in the midst of living our "busy" lives.

I colored this card using my Zig Clean Color Markers.  Once it was dry, I used my Copic markers to add shadows and polka dots.  The shadows help the letters pop off the page and give it depth. 
The card is so fun and colorful by itself that I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  Just a veritical gingham ribbon, and a bit of glossy accents on some of the words.

A Week of Summer Cards!

Created by Michele Kovack
With great sadness, I tell you that this is my last official week of summer!  School starts next Monday, so the lazy days of no alarm clock, no schedule, and gallivanting around are quickly coming to an end! ;) 
LOL! I am okay with it actually.....I had an awesome summer, but I am ready to go back to my kiddos and see my coworkers! 
I love, love, love these images by Suzy Plantamura! They are called, Sizzling Series Watercolor Paintable Prints!
I had so much fun coloring them with different mediums. 
This one was colored with Copics and given some depth with glossy accents and my white gel pen for the sand.  I added some glitter to the water as well as a scattering of sequins.

I will be sharing a summer inspired card each day this week! 
I hope you will pop by tomorrow too!
