Marker It Up with 4 Crafty Chicks.

Who doesn't love to color? Well my oldest son and hubby don't but the rest of us, love it. My middle son Robin does some amazing graffiti art and my daughter is always coloring up a storm. Ever since I was little coloring made me happy and brought me comfort when I was upset. This week it is my turn to be hostess for 4 Crafty Chicks and don't worry I am not upset, i love to color for fun... :). Can you believe we are on our 60th Challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Yahoooo! Congrat's chickie's you all rock.


So for over a year now I have admired the Kenny K stamps but I finally got my first one. Before I have been lucky enough to borrow my friends when having stamping days but now I have one of my very own. Oh man was she so much fun to color and for the first time I colored with only Copic Markers (oh there are so many more to get *giggle*). There is so much to learn with these markers and hopefully one day I will be able to color some really amazing images.

This card was made for my son's girlfriends birthday today. She is an awesome girl and is one who appreciates anything homemade. Here is hoping she loves this Kenny K and the colors.

The colors I used are old olive, more mustard, cajun craze, early espresso, and whisper white. Instead of ribbon I used twine (early espresso and white) and two punches from Stampin Up and pewter pearls.

Leanne, Lori and Melissa have made wonderful cards this week (as with every week). Be sure to stop bye there blogs and share some love. Also check out our Guest Designer: Christy Dillman.

We had an awesome week last week, so I am hoping we can keep it going! I have so enjoy checking out all of the beautiful blogs and creations that you share with us each week. Please come and join us for a week of fun at 4 Crafty Chicks.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

  4. She'll love this birthday card...I know I do! Wonderful SU colors and your tip is fabulous. Makes me laugh though as I remember the first time I tried that technique and I forgot to take the paper off the second pop-up and for the life of me could not figure out why it wouldn't stick. LOL..oh how far I've come! (kidding, that was just last week.) ;)
