New at Michaels! by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
Have you seen the new Art Impressions sets that are arriving at Michaels stores this spring??  I spent some time having fun colouring up the new bowling themed set SCO680 :

 For this one, I made my own bowling ball with a small circle die, and a 1/8" hole punch to make the finger holes on the ball:
 The set includes the two larger images that I've used on my cards, the small bowling pin, a bowling bag image - and six wonderful sentiments.
 Copics used:  Skin tones - E31, E34, E37, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - C3, C1, E18, E07, E02, E29
Oranges - YR19, YR16, YR15, YR12
Yellows - Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11
Blues - B28, B26, B24, B23, B21
Greys - C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
Teals - BG15, BG13, BG11


  1. Awesome cards. Truly inspirational. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Superb cards - your colouring is awesome, Jo x

  3. Love these Karen! The bright colours are awesome and set off the perfectly coloured images perfectly!

  4. Such bright and happy cards, Karen!! LOVE how you made your own bowling ball!!

  5. Great cards! The colors are very striking. (Ha! Couldn't resist saying that.) I had to buy this fun set when I saw it last weekend--my mom is on a bowling team with my sister-in-law's mom. Both moms are named Linda, and I'll definitely be making the Lindas some cards with these stamps :)

  6. Karen, gorgeous cards! So so fun and colorful! Can't wait to go bowling!

  7. I agree with everyone! Super fun cards.
