New "Envelope" Gift Card Holder


I found a tutorial last night on this cute little gift card holder. It was easy and a pretty quick project.
The base is a standard card envelope folded in half. 

I loved the idea of the Brad and baker's twine closure!

Pink Happy Birthday

Just another birthday card...this time using a technique called "Fork Bows". You run ribbon through the tines of a fork and tie a knot and voila - a nearly perfect bow.

More in-flight work

THese are both watercolor pencils and a waterpen for blending with black sharpie and touches of white paint pen.

In-flight Journal Page

Talk about simple. I used brush markers to do the colored blocks in the background, then drew the face with a black sharpie and colored in the empty space next to the head. Then I added some bits of white paint pen. Amazing what you can do while on a flight!

Colorful Journal Page

This page started with three solid acrylic inks, then stamped over with bubblewrap in the same three colors. Next I drew the face and the hair, I colored in the empty space to the left of the head with pink (something new for me) and decided it was too bland so I added the lines and doodling. I used the back end of a paint brush to add the dots.
