Coloring inspires me

I haven't been feeling very inspired lately, I think it has to do with the thousands of projects I want to do before the baby gets here. I get so overwhelmed trying to get one started that I end up just moving stuff around until I then I just give up.  I finally just pulled out some stamps and started coloring, I find it very relaxing and I LOVE my copics. I have not found any other coloring tool that blends and creates a professional look like the copic markers. Definitely the best investment I have made, now my colored pencils, other markers, crayons and twinkling H2O's just collect dust!

I stamped the hero art poppy stamp over a background stamp from Studio 490 which was stamped in old paper distressed ink. The poppies were colored with copics, R24, R27 & R29, YG93,95 & 97 and the orange I forgot to write down. I ran the ribbon through the xyron and then used glue dots to adhere the folds down. The sentiment and die is from PTI. 

We have a busy week here, work has slowed down considerably, hope that it picks up again soon. However there are a lot of things that we haven't had time to do like caulking and painting the house and cleaning up around here. It will be nice to have these things done, always some type of upkeep when you have a house!


  1. I <3 my copics too. I just never take them out to play anymore. I really really should.

  2. love how you did that ribbon at the bottom. great colors for the poppies!
