My Second creation Made while Trapped by the HEAT.

This card, my second created while being cooped up from it being so hot and humid outside. I created this card around the Stamp. The turtle stamp is Stamps by Judith,
I love their selection of animal stamps.
I colored my turtle with my copics markers, still on the learning curve with them, and loving it, I have a wonderful teacher, she is fantastic at doing it as well as teaching it.

Then when my coloring of the stamped image was dry, just a few minutes, I put glossy accents on his squares on his back and sprinkled some Diamond Dust on the wet glossy accents, the Diamond Dust is by Floracraft., which it is nothing more than finely ground up glass, but it looks so pretty, and I use it also with glossy accents on my prima flowers, and it adds such a nice sparkle.

I then put a cut out mask of the turtle on him, and spray painted the background with my copic sprayer, using one of the mauve looking colors for the bulk of it and a blue color for the corners.

Then I used one of Martha Stewart's punches on the PP paper, and then glued it on some bazzil card stock, then stamped with my Hero Arts Happy Birthday stamp and used two prima flowers, one pinkish one (already made), which I added some stickles to the center and some of the diamond dust along with it. The second flower I colored a plain prima with the same color as the back ground using the copic system again, then added some stickles to the center and some diamond dust in the middle.
I then glued the Flowers on using glossy accents, I know when I put something on with the Glossy accents, it is not going to fall off!! Love that stuff!! I also added another Hero Arts sentiment to the inside of the card.

And that was it, Thanks for looking.


  1. Nicely done! I love the coordinating elements. You're doing a fabulous job with your Copic coloring and airbrushing. Love it!

  2. Such a cute turtle! Wow! Airbrushing! I have yet to try that!Is it messy?
    Thanks for your comments on my blog. I was reading about your duck stories. How cool that you were actually able to hatch wild eggs. Whenever I try to mess with anything wild they die on me.
    I'm surprised you were able to give them back to the wild once you'd reared them. I'm not sure I could do that.... but then we live in a perfect place for ducks, being on water.
    PS) you ought to join in on one or two challenges. You might win some goodies to play with!

  3. This is so adorable! Love the colours :)
