Go Fly a Kite

I love kites and kite images, and this one is so simple and clean and cute, I just had to give it a simple and clean and cute treatment.

I colored this kite with Memento markers...a bit of an experiment in shading with them. Seems to work okay, don't you think?

Sadly, no time for chit chat tonight. Still no time in the craft room, either. Sigh.

Have a lovely weekend, and may each of you have some beneficial time creating something wonderful!

stamps: A Muse
ink: Memento
paper: Mark's Finest
accessories: Memento markers, dimensional


  1. Suddenly all the white space seems to make a lot sense!! LOVE This!

  2. Your shading is so well done that I thought you'd cut out the kite and popped it up on dimensionals!

  3. Well, Susan, I did cut it out and pop it up! But I was very happy with the shading, nevertheless. ;)

  4. This IS simple and clean and cute. And it doesn't get any better than that. Your shading is really good! I'm sooo glad you're not a Copics kind of girl --- I can't work with the couple of them I've bought, and I'd be totally frustrated if I opened your blog every morning and saw them at work! I LOVE what you do, and I love the way you do it.

  5. I LOVE this! I like kites too...if only I was more successful at actually getting them to fly! (DH has to take over that job.) Your shading is awesome! I'd never have known your coloring wasn't Copic, had you not told us! :)

  6. Love the clean look of this card! You did a fab job coloring the kite.

  7. A card like this really makes my shoulders relax! Beautiful.
