Shy Skunks by Pickled Potpourri


Here are two cards I made with this adorable digital image from Pickled Potpourri called Shy Skunks.  The first card is a flip it card by Spellbinders.


The inside sentiment is Sophisticated Sentiments by Red Rubber Designs, plus a computer generated saying, "You are so stinking cute!".  The patterned paper is from the Blooming Garden Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs.  I've added jewels and a ribbon for embellishment.
 
 
The second card with Shy Skunks is below.  It has background paper embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that says Happy Birthday, and I cut out the image with Lacey Squares Nestablilites by Spellbinders. The sentiments is computer generated.
  Both card images are colored with Copic Markers.

Christmas Candle by Pickled Potpourri




Christmas Candle is a nice collage image from Pickled Potpourri.  It almost makes a complete card on its own.  I colored by image with Copic markers (R24, R59, Y38, YR04, Y26, Y28, YG63, YG67) and then used chalks for the background.  On the flame I used Yellow Wink of Stella to make it glisten.   Crystal Effects were applied to the dripping part of the candle.  The background patterned paper is from my stash of paper, and I used Bazzill Ivy cardstock to mat it.  A rick rack ribbon trim across top and bottom was added also.

Beehive by Pickled Potpourri



Beehive by Pickled Potpourri makes a happy card for almost any occasion. The background of my card is an embossing folder by Darice called Bees Buzzing.  I chalked over it to make the bees visible.  The beehive image is printed on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  Then I cut it with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals Nestabilities and mounted it on yellow cardstock.  Buttons with floss were added for accent.
