I have a quick post today sharing this month's Whimsy Release and my favorite medium lately, Karin Brushmarkers. This adorable set is called, Best Fishes. I love the faces on these! I water colored all of the images with Karin Brushmarkers. I added a bit more depth and shadows using a black colored pencil. I also added high lights with a white gel pen.
The images were fussy cut. I created my own window panel using Whimsy's new Rounded Rectangles die. I stamped the sentiment in between the panels. The background paper is from the
6 x 6 Cozy Winter Pack. I popped the panels and fish up using Crafty Foam Tape. Glossy accents was added to the balloons.
For a finishing touch I added a sheer yellow ribbon and a scattering of hearts from the Sprinkletz-Sweetheart collection. ( I am seriously addicted to these tiny hearts!)
So today I am headed to Misericordia for Cortney's 4 year annual meeting. It is hard to believe she has been living and thriving there for 4 years! She is so active and involved over there....it makes my heart happy. I can rest easy each day knowing how much she is loved and cared for. :)
It's hard letting our kids go and live their lives....especially if they are intellectually disabled. But this truly has been such a blessing for her. And us.
Have a great day friends!
