Are you Loving This Amazing First Release And Challenge From HeartCraft Paper!

I am so honored to be part of this amazing new company!  We have an amazing flagship launch. Have you checked out these new images? They are so much fun to work with. 
Here is some more inspiration for you. I have used another of the new images in my project called Gemma. You can find it here.

I have colored in Gemma using copic markers. Copic colors I used E00, E01, E08, E11, E13, E15, E17, E21, E40, E41, C1, C3, C5, C7, B99, Y17, R20 and R59.

And for the background I used matte cardstock designed for alcohol inks and alcohol inks in the following colors, Cloudy Blue, Lettuce, Citrus, and Clover, and Blending Solution. The grass on the bottom was cut with a grass die and was cut from the same alcohol ink background paper that had been trimmed down from the background.

Are you Ready! Heartcraft Paper Challenge And Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone and Welcome! This is so exciting! Welcome to this amazing new online store, Heartcraft Paper! We have an amazing flagship launch. Take a look ath these!
Here is some inspiration for you. I have actually used two of the new images in my project.

Here you can see how this project evolved.
First I went in with my darkest color first to create where the shadows would be on the rocks. Copic used W7
Next I went in with a slightly lighter shade. Copic used W5
I then continued as I moved with each layer to a lighter shade. Copics used W4, W3
And bow using my hilight tone and blending in my different shades. Copics used W0, W1
Next again we start with the darkest tome to put in our shadows first. Then midtone and finally our hilight color. Copics used E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
I tend to work in sections which helps to not let my ink dry too quickly.

Next I colored the image of the person. Copics used R21, R22, R24, R27, R29, Y13, Y15, Y17, C5, E00, E01, E11, E13, E15, E17, E18, E21

 And finally filled in the background sky. Copics used Y000, B000, RV000


And here is my final project!

Winners!!!!!!

Thank you all for all the amazing comments both on my blog and on Instagram. The Creative Escape Papercrafting Winners are:
For My Blog Followers, the winner of the $20 CEP Gift Certificate ....Carla Hundley !!!!!!
For Instagram, the winner of the Lawn Fan Stamps and Dies...Debbie Hockman Munkirs!!!!!!
 
Yay!!!!!!!!

Let's Talk Packaging

Depending on where you are it may be craft fair season. Here in New Mexico the fall is a huge time for craft fairs but also there are a lot of outside summer fairs. And so today I am bringing you a couple of packaging thoughts. I make cards. So one thing I like to do is sell a few cards together in a bundle. I am using my Craft Fantastic medium round glass and medium round glass tray, Craft Fantastic Image Sheet, Glaze and Glue, and Sticky Dots. Take a look.


Another possibility, many people are using Mason Jars and this is another thought for you.Take a look.

I have used an image from one of the image sheets. But you can either go with your logo or some art that identifies your business, or you can go with an image that treats the piece as both packaging and an extra item included with your product.

What other ways are you all using Craft Fantastic in your packaging? We'd love to see!

Hugs,

Judy
