Thanks A Pot! :)

Hello, and Happy Wednesday!  Just wanted to pop in to share a card I made a bit ago and just never got it posted on here.  It was one of those nights where I just wanted to "play" and make something I liked, without thought of which products I needed to use, or whose sketch or color scheme.  This one is just me.  {whew… now that I put it out there like that, I'm feeling a little vulnerable… like if you don't like it, then what does that say about me???  and now…..  where do these neuroses come from?!?!  :) }

Anyway, this is one of my favorite stamps from Hero Arts because it's so curly and fun to color…  I had to do some selective masking to get my pots situated just right and to get the vine to trail properly…  kinda fun!  I colored the vine and pots with my Copics to mimic the colors in the patterned papers from Authentique…  love, love this color combination!  :)

Speaking of Copics, I just attended the Intermediate certification class this past weekend and had a blast!  Our instructor was the amazing Cindy Lawrence, who was both filled with information and inspiration and absolutely engaging.  If you love Copics and find she will be teaching a class in your area, I would definitely recommend taking the plunge and applying for the class!  :)

I came home from the class eager to "practice" and found I didn't have nearly enough "coloring" images to work with, so (naturally!) I had to place an order for some!  Can't wait till those arrive!  whee!!  :)

Thanks for stopping in today -- I'll be back on Friday with some more Mission: KitPossible cards and to announce the winner of my give-away.  Remember you have until 11:59 pm Thursday 8/30/12 to leave a comment here to be eligible!  :)

Until then, my friends, may your pots be ever-blooming!  (I think that Confucius-guy said something like that…  :)


  1. This is so pretty! I want to color like you!

  2. I love it! Amazing stamping and coloring! I would be dying to color everything! Can't wait to see what else you color. I love the flag/banner piece coming off the side. I think playing just for you is the best. I love when I can sit down and just play, like you said, without any rules/guidelines. Do you feel like we're lookin' atcha oh naturale? Hehehe. I think you're fabulous! Rules or no rules!

  3. What a great layout! Those flowers are amazing! I have that stamp and it is so much fun to color. You've got to let us know about those pots - I assume they are stamps too? Love, love, love this and yes you do wonderfully when you "play" :)

  4. Jen, this is just BEAUTIFUL, and I love that you made it just for you! It was such a joy to meet you, and I meant what I said about your coloring! You have real talent, and I look forward to popping in here from time to time to say, hi! Thank you for your sweet, sweet words! I do hope we get to meet again!
