Wishing You a Magical Day!

Happy Tuesday to ya! It is absolutely beautiful here today in sunny FL!! I wish I had more time to bask in the sunshine today, but I have lots of chores to do this week. We had company for 9 days that left on Easter Sunday, but have more company coming this weekend as well as my 5 yr old's birthday party and soccer & lacrosse games. The kids were off school yesterday for their final day of Spring Break, so we went to the zoo. The kids were really looking forward to seeing the new penguin exhibit that just opened. The penguins were very interactive and cute to watch! Everyone is back in school and I finally get a bit of a breather!

Today, I have a sneak of the new April Whiff of Joy kit available only here! Shipping will begin on April 15th. The kit is called "Scheherazade" - 1001 Nights by Elisabeth Bell. Of course, it reminds me of Aladdin - one of my kids favorite movies! This stamp set comes with 7 images and 8 sentiments. This is a perfect set for lots of birthday cards for boys & girls! I found some Basic Grey Hang 10 DP (way old stuff) for this card and paired it with some Soft Suede and some Old Olive. I used a 4x4 flourish die from QuicKutz for the flourishes along with some Prima crystals. I have a hard time on boy cards, b/c I want to put flowers on everything - LOL! I used a SU oval punch for the sentiment and inked it with some Colorbox chalk ink. Here is a close-up of "Aladdin" - not sure what his name is, but he looks like Aladdin to me! I colored him with Copics and cut him out. It is hard to tell, but I used a clear Copic Spica Glitter Pen on his sword as well as the domes on the buildings. I attached him with some 3-D foam tape. Here is a close-up of the background. I colored it with Copics, masked it and airbrushed the background. Be sure to check the Whiff of Joy blog on April 13th for a tutorial by me on airbrushing!
Here are the Copics I used on this card.

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the day! ~Tori
