so much love for this crafty lady!

First of all, can I just say that Brandi Kincaid is such a cool girl! I love her words, I love her style and I love her art! Her latest Essentials by Ellen sets make me so happy, Leading Ladies - Crafty Lady and Crafty Ladies Say.

I love that Brandi is celebrating the cool things us ladies do with her new Leading Ladies series. And how perfect is Crafty Lady! I often say that coloring isn't really my thing but Crafty Lady is fun to color and I've been putting in a lot of practice, LOL! Here's a few...
For this card, I used all of the crafty supply stamps to create a "halo" around my Crafty Lady. I paired "awesome" from the Essentials by Ellen Positive Word dies and "you are" from Totally Awesome. I colored the awesome word and Crafty Lady with Copics.


Did you know that WOW! Embossing Powder in Primary Pixie matches Copic G02 pretty much perfectly? I was tickled that the sentiment matched Crafty Lady's cardigan.

For this last card, I created a background with Distress Oxides just because it's fun and it makes me feel artistic. The background was the perfect canvas for the super-sized sentiment from Crafty Ladies Say. And it seemed appropriate that Crafty Lady should be popping for that high five.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Friday!

xo,
Carly

P.S. Are you wondering why all my Crafty Ladies are blonde and pale? Well my Copic marker collection is ever-growing but so far lacks options for coloring people, LOL!
