Loves' Color is Red

One crafting resolution I made for 2017 is to get more organized and use more of my stash...mostly papers that I have purchased and have yet to use.  

I decided to start using My Mind's Eye (MME) and Bo Bunny paper.  The goal is to create at least 10 cards from a collection before purchasing more paper, unless I have a special request.

I didn't do to well once I saw the new paper line from Graphic 45...I had to get Portrait of a Lady, but I did go back to my original stash to create two cards to share.

I used colors associated with Valentines' Day and February. 

Here are my two creations:



I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges. 

Paper Nest Dolls - #02 Anything Goes 
Pammie's Inky Pinkies - #1708 Anything Goes
Get Creative - #55 Use Red and 1 Other Color
Aurora Wings - #44 Anything Goes
A Snowflake Promise - #37 Valentines



I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges.

Path of Positivity - #46 Expression of Love
Love to Scrap - #94 Mid Month Inspiration
Crafting from the Heart - #147 Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations - #173 Anything Goes
Digi Choosday - Wk#8 Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy - Love/Romance


Both cards use images from Mo Manning and both were colored using copic markers.

The paper was My Mind's Eye and the collection actually had two names; "The Station" and "Union Square", therefore I ended up purchasing it twice.

Hope you enjoyed my cards and thanks to Tracy MacDonald for my inspiration.


Thanks for stopping by.
Sending hugs from Texas

I'm in agreement with everyone, both are stunning. However, I am am so happy you entered the first on the PIP challenge blog this week because I love the image and your mad coloring skills! Love it to bits! Can't wait to see more entries! By the way, I have made that same commitment regarding paper but geeze, sometimes it's just too pretty to cut...

Oooh, these are absolutely beautiful! I love the colors and a kiss is definitely an expression of love! Great use of stash papers; you're not doing too badly with your resolution if you've only bought once! I need to resolve to buying fewer Copics! hahaha Thanks so much for sharing your lovely cards with us over at Path of Positivity!
