Happy Mail from CAS

Hi All,
I know it's been awhile, but I've been kind of busy. So on Friday I got some happy mail from Clear Artistic Stamps. And of course I had to play as ASAP. These first two cards are from Belinda's Sympathy Garden set. Isn't this pink shimmer paper just gorgeous! It was an unexpected treat I found in my order. I used colored pencils and Gamsol to color the image.
On this card I used copic markers to color the image. You know, when SU came out with groovy guava a couple of years ago, I wasn't too impressed with the color. But I still have some and pulled it out the other day. I was surprised at how well it goes with the blush blossom that I used for the card base. Then I matted the image with mellow moss and it all seemed to come together.
I used the fairy image from Belinda's Whisper in the Wood set for this card. I used a mixture of copics and water color crayons to color the image.
Well, that's about it for now. Hopefully I'll have a post ready for this weekend. We're headed to Hyde Park in a couple of days for our daughter's graduation from the Culinary Institute of America.
