Create and color

Welcome my coloring and crafty friends to My Blog. 

I am excited to share another one of my cards with you! 
What fun I had coloring and making this card. You can find the My Bestie image HERE.

I picked out some Spring time paper from Doodlebug. I must admit, sometime when grabbing colors I forget the importance of picking paper first. When I don't do this step first it slows me down. 

The image is "fussy cut" and backed with puff tape to give it a 3D feel. I also added yellow glitter to her bow, shoes and flowers to make them pop! The grass was a creation of my labor... I used the "flicking" technique to create the Illusion of her sitting. 
Learning to ground your images can be challenging but fun.

Tiffany Toldson

Welcome my coloring and crafty friends today I am posting an image I did for Creative Blog for Sherri Baldy My Besties

To start this party, let me tell you a little about myself. My Name is Tiffany, I'm a wife, mother of 6 girls and I LOVE crafts!

I have always been pretty crafty from sewing to scrapbooking and everything in between. However about 2 years ago I found my "craft love," Copics!
It all started when I wanted to make a personalized card and went to YouTube to find my answer. EVERY video I came across kept mentioning how they "colored this cute little image with their Copic markers." That lead me on a search to find out what the heck Copic markers were. Once I found them I felt like I had to have them (all) and know how to use them. I found a few digital artists and started coloring like crazy.
However at the end of 2014, I set a goal for myself to become a Design Team member. I knew it would take me coloring more and posting more on social media, so thats what I did. I created a birthday file that I would use as my source of card making. 
Then it happened... the amazing Deirdre Smith contacted me about My Besties DT and I knew it was going to be GREAT, so here I am and here's my first post!

I am so excited to share today's card with you! I enjoyed coloring this sassy Hippo, she can be purchased HERE                        

When starting a card project I like to choose my paper first (that doesn't always happen). This process helps me pick out my Copic marker colors and embellishments before hand so that I'm not all over the place.

Lips: R24/21
Cheeks: R21
Eyes: W5/3
