Big Mouth Bertha

 Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a BIG MOUTHS set from ART IMPRESSIONS. This fun gal is called BIG MOUTH BERTHA.


These interactive big mouths are so much fun.  You pull down on the tab and then the mouths open.  This is Bertha with her mouth closed.  My next photo shows her "big mouth" wide open!


When I made this card I didn't have the verse yet but it's on my wish list!!
Hopefully I'll have it soon because it's just perfect for this image...

It's your birthday...Smile while you still have teeth.


Copics used:
YG11, B00, B41, E00, E25, E50, E93, E97,
RV00, RV11, RV42, RV52, R20, R81

New Water Color Minis from Art Impressions

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of the new release water color minis from Art Impressions.

We're also starting a new challenge...

 

The set I've used is called Flowering Mailbox (sku# 4607)

This is the first time I've ever water colored.  Although it was a challenge I think it came out okay.  This was actually my second attempt.  I wasn't going to share my first attempt because it most definitely has it's flaws but after thinking about it I thought it might be good for people to see how quickly you can pick it up.  You can see the other card below.


I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to create this.  For the flowers I stamped some ink onto a CD and then spritzed water on it.  Next I dipped my stamps into it and stamped them.  The mailbox and bird were colored with the same ink but I used a water color pen to apply the ink.


This is the one that almost didn't share.  You can definitely tell that it's a first try.  Although it's not perfect I think it could be worse.

Party group birthday

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing one of the fun FRONT and BACKS sets from Art Impressions.
The set is called Maturing (sku #4570)

Now...I made this card a little while back before it was available in rubber.  I had a "sample" set and my image is backwards...the back and front didn't line up.  Due to this my card isn't a true F & B.  I've since received the actual rubber and can't wait to try them with the matching dies!
