Create with TLC: Color my world FANTASTIC!


I hope that your Saturday has been productive!  I started out the day shopping wich is such a treat, because I finally found some brown sandals at DSW.  I had a certain style in my head and refused to settle for anything less.  I also got a 40% discount so I am happy as can be. :-)  After shopping I stopped by my mom's house to check up on her.  She had told my sister that I must have met a guy because I hadn't been by to see her. lol  I assured her that she would be the first (possibly the second) to know if I met someone.

Well, enough jibber-jabber I am here to show a card I created to thank my sister for designing me a logo.  She is a Graphic Artist and so I wanted to make her an artsy themed card.  I once again called on Paulette over at Create with TLC to create a wordart set for me to use.  She graciously took on the challenge and I am so glad that she did.  She is so sweet. 

Anyway, here's my card...

Mo's Jacqui
I designed the easle card on my Cameo.  I used Kraft cardstock to cut it out and matted using black Bazzill cardstock. 

I colored the image using Copic markers.  I use E11, E13 and E21 for her skin and E25, E27, and E29 for her hair.  I also used C1, C3, B00, B000, E50,E51, E53, E49, and BV02 to color the other items. 

Here's one of the sentiments from Paulette's new Art and Color TLCreations set.  I used my Copic markers to color in the letters that spell Fantastic.  Isn't that a fun font?! 

You can pick this set up and many others from the Create with TLC store.  I can think of so many images from so many different artist that would go perfect with this set.  I am playing around with an opportunity for some blog candy give-a-way involving this set and possibly some other goodies so stay tuned to see how that plays out. 

Thanks for looking and commenting!
