Good Morning! Glorious Tuesday and I haven't been to bed yet from last night. It is 6:30AM and I have an appt. with the PT at 8 ...Dear Lord I must be insane!! I worked all night on cards I had orders for and I am posting four of them this morning. If the customer doesn't like my Sara K image, I am in big time trouble because, I used the same image in four of the cards!!!  You tell me what you think!

The first one is for a co-worker at my hubby's work. Yeppers! I have the birthday orders for his co-workers,  the lady who buys the cards for the events is my favorite customer!

This is the inside
This card is for a Afro American friend of my customer and is the preachers wife! I did her skin a lighter tone of brown. In this picture the left arm looks blotchy, but not in person!

This one is for Afro American friend of the customer. I did her a skin coloring a little darker.

Last one is for a Co-worker

Hi Colleen, hate to be a nag but firstly it makes life easier for folks to comment if your challenge entry links directly to your blog post and not just your blog. Just a little moan but it will make life easier for folks.

secondly, I cannot for the life of me see where you used the alcohol inks on your card? You don't mention them in your list of supplies either!

However, all of these cards are absolutely gorgeous, coloured beautifully, on stunning layouts, and you must be mental staying up most of the night to make them!! I bet they went down a storm when you passed them on to the person who commissioned them.

Hope you caught up with your sleep the next night, and that I haven't put you off paying us another visit!

Cath Wilson said...

What a shame you didn't actually use any alcohol inks on your card for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge - it's a very pretty card.

Hope you managed to catch up on your sleep!

Lin said...

Sorry to push the point but copics are alcohol based markers, not inks, and it was stated quite clearly on the blog what sort of alcohol ink we were after.

Pryn said...

These are all wonderful! The inside of the cards are beautiful as well!!!
