Silhouette, Water Colors, Stickers, and ICE CREAM! ;)

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning!  I am sharing a card that I created for the SRM Blog.  I hadn't used my Silhouette in awhile and decided to dust that baby off and put it to work!  I found this adorable ice cream image. I cut it out of water color paper and gave it some color using my Zig Markers.  I added glossy accents and a bit of glitter.  I used SRM's We've Got Your Border-Bright for the sentiment.

The background was done in various shades of yellow, pink, and orange using my Peerless water colors.  Once it was dry, I splattered it with white and black paint.  I added a few sequins and a few dots here and there using my gel pen.

I am off to take Cort for a much needed haircut and lunch with my mom.
The days of summer are flying by and I really need it to slow down a bit! ;)
Thank you for popping by today!

Celebrate!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning!  I am a day late posting this......I was up on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog yesterday with this bright water colored card!  Cortney is home for the week, so I am going to blame her for my tardiness! LOL! 
I water colored the background in a variety of bright colors using my Zig Clean Color markers.  Once dry, I splattered it with a bit of black paint.  I added Donna Salazar's E-Z stars and sprinkled them with glitter.  I die cut the two stars.  One out of water color paper and the other using a 3D Foam sheet.  I then sprinkled it with glitter because it is sticky on both sides!

I adhered the stars together and onto the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam tape.  (My absolute go to product for every single card I make!) 
I wanted to share a bit of San Francisco with you...since I am finally done editing pictures! 
Thank you for stopping by!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and MFT Blog Hop!

I am thrilled to be participating in the blog hop between My Favorite Things and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!  I have loved these adorable penguins for some time and was so excited to get my hands on them! They are part of a set called, Penguins in Paradise. I used my Mini Misti and a bit of masking to create my scene. I colored the images using my Copic markers.  I even gave the one little guy a sunburn! Doesn't the other penguin look a bit exasperated?  Like he is thinking, "Why didn't he wear sunscreen?" 
I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  Just a few sequins (attached with DODZ™-mini)  and some Donna Salazar Grungie Girl Twine.  The image was adhered to the card using Crafty Foam Tape.

My second card uses these adorable soda bottle dies! I inked each one with Tim Holtz inks and spritzed them with water.  I did the same to the background.

I stamped the sentiment from MFT's Soda Pop set and added that to the center bottle. I adhered a scattering of rhinestones and sequins using DODZ™-mini. I used Crafty Foam Tape to adhere the panel to the card.

Hello Sunshine with PolyChromo Pencils! (And a bit of San Francisco too!)


Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning my friends!
Before I left on my vacation I had created this card using a cute stamp set from Stampendous and my Polychromo pencils.  I sponged the edges with a light blue ink and added a sticker from SRM's Sentiment/Spring collection.
I also added a few sequins, glittery clouds, and a water colored sun.

To the very bottom of the card I added SRM's Sticker Stitches in black to help balance the card.

We had such a great time in San Francisco! 
I took quite a few pictures, but of course, being the one who took them, I am not in too many!  But this one, our tour guide captured on our way to sunny, warm Napa.  As you can tell in the picture, San Francisco was anything but warm and sunny! It was quite cold and misty.  But I love the bridge behind us, with the heavy fog.......and of course me and the hubby snuggling to keep warm! ;)
And one last thing I want to mention, over the next few days there is a fun blog hop going on with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and My Favorite Things Stamps! 
I will be sharing what I created tomorrow!  Be sure to pop over there and check out what my fellow design team members created!
Thank you for stopping by today!

PolyChromo Pencils and a Baby Card!


Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning friends!
By the time this is posted I will be taking off for San Francisco! I am nervous and excited all at the same time!  My life has changed so much the last few months and I am finally starting to enjoy the free time I have.  (And not feel guilty as many of us moms do). I know my girl is happy and well taken care of. My heart is finally in a better place.
So soon, I will be like a honeymooner with my hubby, exploring California.
Before I left I created this card for my neighbor who just had a baby boy.
I have been having so much fun pulling out old stamps that have been collecting dust for years.
This one is by Whipper Snapper.  
Created by Michele Kovack
I used my Polychromo pencils to color the image and create the tile background, along with a white gel pen. The tag was given a wash of water colors using my Zig markers.  I added a bit of ribbon and a few Dew Drops. Oh! and a bit of sparkle to the bubbles using Stickles.

Have a great rest of your week!
Thank you for making me a part of your day! :)

Water Colors and Stencils!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning my friends!  
Remember yesterday I said I had to pack?
Yea, haven't done it yet.
Total slacker!  I need to get it done today or I will be visiting San Francisco in the same outfit for 5 days! ;)
I am up on the SRM blog today with this card.  I used this cool background stamp and embossed it in white. (And have no idea what company makes the stamp.....I looked, no name). I colored it in with my Zig Markers.
Created by Michele Kovack
I layered a sun stencil over it and applied clear texture paste.  I sprinkled it with a glittery embossing powder and heat set it after it was dry.  I wanted to add a bit of depth to the rays, so I went back over it with my Zig marker in gray.  
I cut two pinking edge circles and water colored those as well.  I added SRM's Summer Sentiment.
For a finishing touch I added some white dots with a gel pen and adhered a few sequins.

Okay, I am not kidding....
I am going to pack!

I used a stamp set by JustRite and water colored it using my Zig Markers. I layered everything using Crafty Foam tape and DODZ™. (My absolute favorite "go to" products!)
The twine is from The Stamp Simply store. (My other favorite place to get ribbon and twine!)
