Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends

My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.

Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.


The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.

Here is the link to Morgan's Facebook Group:

I hope you will check out Morgan's Art World Facebook Group and even consider joining the group.  We would love to have you as part of our group.

I will be back with the Copic Colors I used - we had a power outage today and I am stumbling to get things up and running again.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments make my day.

It was so much fun to color her and create the background.  I colored her with Copics, used some old string I had in a drawer, some embellishments and a stencil.

Knitty Kitty Family Reunion

Happy Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing a DT card I made yesterday that was just a hoot to create.  I had so much fun and love how it turned out.  If you haven't seen Annabel's adorably sweet images of Kitty's you just might want to check them out.  The links are below:



This image can be found here:


and here are the links to her FB page and her Etsy Shop:

I really wanted to do something silly with this card.  These images just make me smile and I think it kind of brings out the child in me.  I wanted to use different colors to color everything and yet have it all be coordinated as much as possible.  I used a brick stencil to create the background and wanted it to be light enough to help the images pop out more.  I created the asphalt using several different shades of gray.  The colors I used are: 

BG02, 05
C1, 3, 5
E31, 33
RV02, 04, 13, 14, 17
Y26, 35, 38
YR21, 23


After I added all the different cardstocks the brick in the background looked kind of bare.  After some serious deep thinking it occured to me this whole scene just looked like a family reunion. And that's how the title of this card was finalized.  

I really hope this card makes you smile!!

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your taking time to leave me a comment.

I hope you have a fabulous day!!
