Coloring with Memento inks

Hello everyone!  I am going to keep this short for I have too much information to share!  First of all I apologize for not being very good with blog hopping the past few weeks. I have really been busy organizing The Outlawz Rodeo taking place in Baltimore  May 18-20. If you are not familiar with The Outlawz it is a challenge site I created January 3, 2011. I invited 11 amazing women to join me and we started seven different types of paper craft challenges, obtained  monthly sponsors for prizes and have grown from 12 members to currently 1543 members.   The DT consists of 38 super, fantastic amazing women who's name are on my right side board. They have the  biggest hearts and amazing talent and  I love each and every one of them for they really are my sistah's!

Tomorrow I am driving to Glen Allan, VA for the Copic Intermediate certification class. Even though I have learned everything I know about Copics from Suzanne Dean and Colleen Schaan  I need the certification to obtain a position teaching Copics at my local community college and Scrap booking stores:)

Do you know what TTCRD stands for? It's abbreviations stand for "Through The Craft Room Door'" an online digital crafting magazine started by the talented Suzanne Dean and Marti Wills. This week the TTCRD challenge is CAS with a sentiment.  The random winner will win a $20.00 Gift Certificate to SCACD where you can purchase many of your crafting needs.

My birthday card was created using "Pine and Lake Silhouette" by  Northwood Rubber Stamps. I love Northwood stamps esp. the ones with scenery. I sponge ink my colors using Memento Inks. First I sponged Cantaloupe on the left hand side just right behind the tree line and made sure everything I did on top, I also did on the bottom to make it look like an identical reflection in the water. Around the Cantaloupe I sponged Angel Pink. Lulu next  spreading it over the rest of the image and added a little bit of Grape Jelly on the edges.  I love sponge coloring! It took me five minutes! I originally did it on Cryogen paper and hated it. The beautiful sparkles in the paper are awesome for copic coloring but not sponging.  The A2 size card was embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder and sorry it doesn't have a name on it.

The Baltimore Rodeo Retreat details are all on 
Lots of fun and classes
