Greeting Farm Cards

Happy Friday!
I don't know where all the time goes...but before I know it another week has come and gone. Today I want to share with you a couple of cards I created recently with some of The Greeting Farm stamps I picked up at CHA. I've been wanting to try some of these stamps for a good long while and of course now that I have, I love them!
I've also been wanting to practice my Copic coloring...why buy expensive artist markers and then never use them? So it's my goal to incorporate more coloring into my artwork.  Sometime this year I would really like to get my Copic Certification so I can start teaching classes. There is just no other look as crisp and beautiful for coloring images and I just love the bold colors!

For the first card I used Kaisercraft Chapter One 6x6 paper (this is one of my all time favorite collections), Kaisercraft Magic Happens paper, some twine from Close to my Heart and the Flutter Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm. The background (behind Anya) was sponged with Sky Close to my Heart ink and a Crafter's Workshop cloud template. The following list are the Copics I used (I forgot to write them down, so I think this is right...).
Skin: E00, E01, E11, R12
Hair: Y21, YR23, YR24
Dress: BV02, BV04, R81, R83
Winges: B02, B05, YG13, YG17
Stardust Gel Pen
White Gel Pen

For the second card I used some old Close to my Heart paper (sorry I don't know what collection) and a piece of water color paper (behind the image) which I misted with Party Pink Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Witch's Potion Purple Starburst Spray from Lindy's Stamp Gang. Then I stamped some images from the Star Power stamp set from CTMH.  I'm not sure where the black ribbon came from but the other ribbon I sprayed with the same two colors of mist is some white seam binding. The sparkly brad on the bow is also from CTMH. The image is Tuesday from The Greeting Farm. I love her attitude!
The Copics I used on this image are:
Skin: E000, E00, E01
Hair: N4, N6, N8, N10, RV04, RV09
Dress and eyes: B63, B66
Shoes: Same colors as the hair I just used fewer of the grey markers.
Gold and Starry Night Stickles

I had a blast creating these cards and I hope you enjoyed them too! Please leave me a comment and have a great Friday!
