Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers reading this blog! My day started off great with some blog candy from Sue Berker. She's going to get me to use Copics if she keeps sending me free ones, LOL! If you've not been over to Sue's blog, check it out.
And now to today's card, which has absolutely nothing to do with Copics or Mother's Day. Hero Arts clear set Oceans of Joy is yet another outline set I had to have. This card shows that you don't really have to color cute outline images. I added some sparkle with a Stardust Gel pen, but these images are so whimsical, they would make a great kid's birthday card without time-intensive coloring.
I love this layout. It is ideal for spotlighting any smaller images you may have. The offset rectangle adds interest and gives the whole card a modern feel. Hope you like it!
There were a few questions regarding my posts about coloring that I'm going to try to answer over the next week. I sort of feel like I opened a can of worms, and I'm not even a fisherman, LOL!
Also, don't forget about OLW3: Punctuation. Apparently, I can only have the InLinkz box in one place on the blog, so I'm going to keep the current one in the sidebar so it stays near the top and visible. When I post the next challenge, I'll move the InLinkz for OLW3 to the actual OLW3 post and put the OLW4 InLinkz in the sidebar. Hope all that makes sense. Even if it doesn't, please give all the participants some encouragement. Using punctuation on a card takes us all out of our comfort zone, I think!
