Back from a long break

I am finally back to blogland after a long break!  Not that there has not been creative output coming out of my craft room, but I have not been interested in fussing with photographing, editing, and posting photos, preferring to spend my time creating.  However, I miss the fun of sharing, and hearing all your comments and ideas, so back I am :-)

Today I felt like working on cards using my fabulous Thomas Kinkaid stamps.  I was inspired when looking online and seeing that Cornish Heritage Farms had finally re-released some of them, and seeing samples by their design team, so made a bunch of quick cards using them today.  I love it when the artwork lets me create a beautiful card in a quick and easy way!!

This first bundle are birthday themed, and involved no colouring:

These next few had minor colouring in the image, generally I picked one colour and item to focus on and give colour to, such as the flowers or water or a tree:

I see that CHF blog has a challenge to do cards this week in black, white and one other colour, so I am playing along with that challenge.  If I win a prize I already have a wish list for new TK images :-)

All the images were stamped using black Versafine on glossy card stock.  The colouring, where I did it was very carefully done with SU markers or else SU pastels.  My Copics make the Verfsafine on glossy card stock run, so I'm glad to dust these other colouring tools off and get a change to use them.
