Good morning ladies! I hope that all of you had a marvelous Saturday and are now sitting back and enjoying a quite Winter Sunday. For me that means having the chance to finally spend some real quality time in my craft room with my goodies. Fingers crossed...it will happen today! But, for now, I'll just have to settle for sharing this beautiful Pink Cat card that Lea made with all of you. I know....I live a rough life!
I am always excited when one of Lea's projects comes across my desk. You really have to see it in person to fully appreciate the quality of her work, but I'll do my best to put it into words! First, there is no detail left undone. Every edge is perfect, noadhesive shows, the colors are gorgeous, and (best of all) the images are so nicely done that they look as if they are printed rather than hand colored. So not kidding! Lea is an amazing artist, and the Design Team is very fortunate to have her as part of our team. She uses her Copics to their best advantage and is able to quickly give her images life and depth with just a few colors.
Look at the layering in the image to the right. Beautiful papers in various patterns are layered just so to form a very expensive and high end look. I love the extra touch of having the word "surprise" included as part of the stamped image. I also really like how Lea has used Stickles to accent the swirls on the package. It gives just that little touch of sparkle that makes the image pop. And, even though this card looks very posh, it is actually very simple to make and there are very few supplies involved! Lea has used a DCWV card and layered on coordinating paper. Then she chose her Pink Cat image, colored it, embellished it, and added it to the center of the card. That's it! Done! This is a card that any of you could make, and I hope that you will.
If you have any questions for Lea about the supplies or techniques that she used to make this card, just ask! We are always happy to help in whatever way that we can.
