Sandpiper Sunset and Blog Candy Winner Announced

Happy Monday! Thank you all for your kind comments and congratulations about my happy news last week. I drew a winner from all the comments using Random.org, and the winner is...

Blogger RedGem said...Wow... I saw the publication but I didn't realize it was your first time. I'm very happy for you and about time you were recognized for your wonderful creativity.

Congrats, RedGem! Can you email me at theresamomber@gmail.com, with your snail mail address so I can send your new stamp set and magazine out to you? 

My card above uses images from By The Sea. I'm sorry I didn't get step by step photos for this one, but I do have three cards coming this week with tutorials. Once in a while the fit comes over me and I just have to make a card start to finish without pausing for photos. I colored the sandpiper with Copic markers and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder to resist ink. Then I sponged the background with Memento inks.

Thanks again for all your support and encouragement! It means so much to me. I'll be back with a tutorial tomorrow, I promise. Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful! Of course I always love to see the tutorials but you do deserve a break whenever you feel the need. Thanks for taking the time all the times you do post them. You sure have helped me alot with learning to color with copics. You are the reason I finally purchased them.

Your card is sooo beautiful! I love the soft shading you did on it. (It can't be easy to stop and take photos when you are creating)

Thank you for sharing! :)

I cannot beleave you've only been published once either. You are amazing and need to send off all you have. The coloring in this one is so fabulous, I am in awe. Can't wait to see your upcoming tutorials, I do not always mention it, but I really enjoy your posts and tutorials. They have helped me tremendously.

Another absolutely beautiful card. Your blending of colors always makes me so envious - I know I've said this before - but it just appears to easy and natural for you. I love this card - the image, the colors and the sentiment - perfect!
