New Challenge at Mad for Markers - Ys and YRs


Hi Blogging friends,

Another quick post here today for Mad for Markers using this Saturated Canary image available in Sammi's store here.

I went for a monotone card today using mainly Ys and YRs for the current challenge here.

Copics:
Ys: Y08, Y06, Y02, Y00
YRs: YR07, YR04, YR02, YR00

My cards are getting so much simpler now... I am not as big on embellishing as I used to be.  It could be to do with my de-cluttering of my craft room.  It is rather a slow process, but the more I get rid of, the more I want to get rid of and try to keep everything clean and neat.  I am so not naturally a neat person.  I have to work really hard at it.  Or, it could be to do with the fact that I dont like the embellishments I put on a card as much anymore...not too sure, are the trends changing?? Is washi tape replacing flowers?  I havent bought any washi tape yet, but I do want some!!

Anyway, to leave you on this rainy Saturday afternoon with a picture of our gorgeous boy helping himself to some Copics.  He LOVES them!!!


Thanks for stopping by,

Alicia xx

Oh Boy, just wait until he figured out how to get the lids off!
I am not a tidy person and lately the house has gotten VERY cluttered. Bad enough I am going nuts. I have several boxes of stuff ready to go to Good Will and moreI need to sort through. Clean and simple works for me when it comes to making cards. Your lovely colored images could stand alone and make perfect cards! Big hugs....

He is too funny! Now that you're a mom, you will probably become a neat freak! (that's what happened to me)

This yellow/orange card is adorable!! I love coloring up SC images! I think it looks great as is-but I'm not great at embellishing either! lol!
