Copic Creations' challenge "Yellow" and for the Simon Says Stamps challenge for a "Male Card". This card was easy to do with these fun digital images. All three images were printed out, colored with Copics and then the hat and fish basket (?what do they call that?? Craw? LOL!) were cut out, sculpted and mounted 3-D.

This is my entry for the "Here comes summer" challenge. The character of Mummu, as drawn by Mo Manning, is one of my all time favorites.

When I first saw Zentangles I was immediately interested in combining them with stamping. This is my latest ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) with an apple image.

Clean and Simple!
This was a quick and easy use of an old technique - using a solid image and applying Marvys directly to the rubber, "huffing" and stamping. The dragonfly was added as an afterthought to bring a little weight to the right side and to add a little sparkle in it's wings. The edges of that panel were distressed with ink and mounted with foam tape on top of the embossed panel. The ribbon was added with a flat bow for added texture. Done and done!
