Just sitting 2013

It time for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week it is about Animals and animals prints. Our sponsor for this week is Oak Pond Creations. My images is called Iinda’s Turtle. try and stop by and see all the wonderful creations.

I've been an artist since the day I was born I just never knew it. As a child I always loved arts and crafts but as an adult I let real life take over and forgot about the important things like scissors, paper and glue. I dabbled in jewelry making for a while then my friend Jeni introduced me to papercrafting in 2011 and later that year I started sketching my own greeting card images. In April of 2012 I opened Oak Pond Creations Digital Illustration Studio on Etsy. I hope my images provide inspiration and smiles. Hugs and happy crafting!

I really took the easy road with this card, I found some stickers I had, they are from EK Success of different trees. My papers are from my scraps.

The background was done with watercolor paper. Used several different colors and blended them together, ironed until it was dry, then used a TCW template called Aspen Trees, taped that down then sprayed Tattered Angels glitter mist colors meadow green and twilight. Let that set for several minutes.  The leaves are from memory box die called tender leaves. Added some Viva inka gold metallic rub to the leaves.

Memory box die delicate vine and I added some stickers of a bird and some flowers. These are the copic markers used to color my image. Let the inside open to added a sentiment or a written message.

As promised here is something fun for you!

Take a look at the words " Get Well Soon" on the card below. This word circle was computer generated and is super easy to do. To show you just how easy, I created a video tutorial to show you. (link below) I love creating these circles as the possibilities are endless! Your greetings can express Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Congratulations!, Welcome Baby, etc. You can even personalize the greetings. Once you've played around with creating your own custom word circles, I hope you'll upload your creations so we can admire your handiwork.



Added Pearl pen color Kiwi. I used one of those action Wobble Springs from and when the card wiggles the turtle does wobbles.
