Farmhouse Shiplap Background

For my project I used and colored the Farmhouse Shiplap Background from Whimsy Stamps. I wanted to go for a re-purposed look so I colored the planks different shades of gray, brown and even one or two of them blue. I also added seams with nails.  I thought the background was good enough for a card so I skipped coloring a character to put on top of it.  I simply added a few odds and ends to create this fun maze card.

Here are the Copic markers I used:

W2, 3, 4, 6
E00, 31, 35, 43
E42, 43, 44
B91, W6, 4, 3
T4, 3, 1
C8, 7, 3
0.2 Multiliner and white gel pen

Out of This World

Here's another galaxy background I tried out and this one uses Distress Inks and the round sponge. Thank you to Chrissy (Chrissyd723) for pointing me to the YouTube tutorial.  This technique was less frustrating than the watercolor but it was significantly more time consuming.  However, either one, I liked the results.

These are the Copic markers I used on Out of This World:

E30, 31, 37
YG17, 23
BG45, 11
Y35, 11
V20, 25
YR09, 12, Y32
R17, 46
C0, 3, 7
W7, 5, 2

This is a card idea by Chari Moss which is featured in the Lawn Fawn store gallery.

Birthday Memories - Bears

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed a card layout and idea by Twins & Twine.  I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment.  I think this will make a great guy card.
