No One Stacks Up to You: Vintage Teacups

Hello Crafters! 

It's been a bit of a crazy busy week for me. I'm trying to fit in all the things (like pretty much every woman everywhere right?!) which is my usual schedule but this week is different because this week I'm taking a little trip. 

Where am I going you ask? 

I'm going somewhere super fun and amazing to spend a weekend with wonderful people whom I love dearly. 

I'm going to . . .

That's right. 
and I m so excited. 

The classes are sold out but they are doing a pop up shop with a bunch of make and takes for the customers. Among those many make and take booths is a Neat and Tangled booth and I will be in it. 

If you are going to CREATE please stop by the booth and see me I would love to meet you in person!! 

Onto today's card . . .

I have been on a watercolor kick lately but I've had these Vintage Teacups in my use pile for a few months now and there was no way I was using anything but Copics. 

You can watch my whole approach in the video below 

So there were definitely some bumps along the way but sometimes overcoming those obstacles helps you learn so much. Not to mention I get to pass on that learning to you!  

In the end I was really happy with the way they turned out. I am also glad I went back in and added those darker colors to the flowers haha! Apparently, contrast and I are having a real love affair. 

Thanks so much for dropping in to visit!

Neat and Tangled: Miss You Girlfriends

Hello Crafters! 

Today's card is proof that even though I've been dabbling in the watercolors lately I can't deny my first love. 


They are still my favorite medium because man, they sure are pretty :) 

If you've been longing for a Kelly video where my copics take the center stage you're going to love the video up on the Neat and Tangled Blog today. 

I hope you'll head over and check it out! 

Thanks for dropping by!
