Part 2 of February Swap

I took a few minutes to make the next two kits from the February swap into cards. 

The bear card is my ODBD challenge card for March.  The challenge is to make a card with scallops.   I don't have a full complement of Copic colors, but when I have the opportunity, I try to practice shading.  I'm especially lacking in browns, so this poor bear is just one color all over.  His hat, however, was where I tried shading.  I need some more markers because I think the hat came out OK and it would be awesome if the whole image was shaded. 
Ann's Kit (I think this is a MFT stamp set)
Jen's kit reminded me so much of her style.  I really admire card makers who have a distinct style.  You can look at their work and know that it's theirs.  I tried to channel Jen's style while I made these cards.

Mary's kit and my own kits are left, so you'll see those another day.  Don't forget to go post a card with scallops for the March ODBD challenge!

  1. Great cards. I do not have many Copics either but I do like to try to buy blending groups -3 at a time- thanks to my teacher.

  2. Regardless of how capable business owners are at multi-tasking, none
    can successfully incorporate all types of marketing without employing a dedicated team.
    Most small business make the mistake of believing
    that by just putting a 5 page catalog website together on the web
    will bring all the customers they had been waiting for.
    But what's more important is this: any business these days is an online business.

  4. You spin my spurs. It made me laugh out loud literally.
    Thank you for joining the ODBD challenge.
