Laughed so hard…. I had tears running down my legs…


Hi readers! Happy Thursday! I hope this caption caught your attention! Today we’re back with another Art Impressions card and some great coloring from their designer Cheryl Valadez! There are so many great sets from this brand and so many wonderful options. I adore their funny & witty sentiments to go with their sentiments!



Art Impressions images lend themselves perfectly to lots of vibrant coloring.  Whether your tools of choice are alcohol markers, watercolors, or pencils these whimsical characters just beg to have their personalities amped up with added hues.  My color weapons of choice are Copic markers.  Using a standard A2 size (4 1/4” x 5 1/2”) layout, I kept my card simple and let this fabulous new Ai image, Laughing Girlfriends set, take center stage.  Not only is the image wonderful, but the 3 sentiments included in the set are absolutely hilarious!  My favorite, however, is “I laughed so hard, I had tears running down my legs!”  I LOVE that!  These two gals are having such a great time I reached for very bold and bright colors to reinforce their joy :)

Copic colors used:

skin- E00, E000, R20, E11 (both)
