My Copic markers cards...

Good evening...
As I have written before I have became a Copic marker fan... I also love my Tombow and master those very well but the techniques are very different. So, depending on the stamp, I use Copic or Tombow and even sometimes Tim's Distress Markers.
These have been done with Copic. I won't pretend it is perfect ... mastering the layers of colors comes with practice... As the saying goes   " Practice makes perfect" LOL.

 Hope you enjoyed your visit... Take care my friends♥

Christmas Cards....

Happy New Year dear Blogger and Followers!  My wish for you ... Health and inspiration for 2013... as a card or mix media artist, to me, these are essential!
What have I been doing lately... well except from Christmas cards... I have been on training to learn the use of Copic markers.... Yes, I know I always said I did not want to get into buying those... I had already so many different brands... But, I could not resist when I saw all the beautiful colors and artwork done with those... so now I would like to show you what I did ... of course you have to keep in mind that I'm a beginner... I have to keep it in mind too... we are so hard with our self!







Night background technique.

That's it for now my friends... Hope you will have a wonderful year of creating, learning and discovering !
Take care and remember " Comments are very much appreciated "!

All white..

Happy Sunday
It was Thanksgiving in the US so I wish all my American friends a Happy Thanksgiving...
Hope you did not abuse to much of the turkey....
I have a bad cold and I had the most difficult thing to do this week...
My Chocolate Brown Lab Sushie crossed the Rainbow Bridge...
It is one of the most heart breaking situation to live when your faithful companion of 12 years
has to go because she is sick... She went as she lived ... very peacefully in my arms... I will never forget her.
OK now that I have been telling all about how I felt this week.  I also
want to show you the only thing I have been able to do.
I made this card for our card group challenge ...
The theme was "  All white "  it was my first and I must say that I love it.
I find very sober and elegant.
Anyway you can tell me what You think about it.
I used the Spellbinder Medallion die cut for the center piece and
the Sizzix Poinsettia die.
I covered my flower with Crackle Accents for an icy illusion.

I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:  Challenge #8 Anythibng goes. Challenge 18 Anything Goes.


Until the next post... have fun doing your art projects and thank you for stoping by.

The Nutcracker Ballet...

Hello bloggers...

I have 4 great, beautiful granddaughters... When they reach the age of 6 or 7 there is a few special
things going on ...
One of those is an invitation to The Nutcracker Ballet with "les Grands Ballets Canadien de Montréal"  at la Place des Art.  Mathilde is the one this year so as I always do I made this special
card as an invitation for her. 
She is thrilled and so are we even if we have seen it a few times now... It's simply magical!

Graphic 45 had this super paper that I used to make my invitation card.
Thank you for your visit and comments.
Take care my friends.

Time... time....

Hello Blogger.

Time... is one of many things we have no control on...
This Lady is caught in time.

I love doing those step card... it allows so many
different embellishments and variations.
Have fun doing whatever you are doing it is the best way to
take advantage of time passing by!
Have a great evening.

Black, white & red!

Hello dear Bloggers.

This is a very simple card yet the bow, flower and pins give it a very nice touch of elegance. 
 It can be used for so many occasions.

The triple bow and pins add a delicate touch to this card.

We never have to many of those "passe partout" cards.
Thanks for stopping by.  Take care.

May first mix média canvas!

Hello Bloggers
I have been wanting for a long time to start with Mix Media .... for me it's simply fascinating to see the results of all those techniques when they come together in a single canvas... Do not forget this is my first... but not my last.
Sous son regard même les fleurs scintillaient.

 Here you can see the texture of the butterfly and the textile flowers added to the flower bush.
8 x 8 canvas.
I have to give credit to my very talented & patient teacher Mel Cardin from Passioncollimagination!

I always like to know what you think of my artwork... comments are appreciated.
