This card was made following a sketch from The Crafting Circle Monthly Blog. The image used on the card is one issued by Bloobel for their May Progressive Challenge. The image is called “Fairy Pig.”
I colored the image with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils. I used Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Dies and Rectangle Dies. The Happy Birthday is a new die I just bought by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Type was computer set.
Thanks for stopping by.
This is the image for the first Progressive Challenge hosted by the Queen of Quirky – Lisa Graham, owner of Bloobel Digital Stamps. When I first saw the image, I had absolutely no idea of what I could or would do with it. Then things slowly fell into place. 🙂
I colored the image with my favorite coloring medium, my Copic Markers and some parts are enhanced with my Prisma Colored Pencils. I also used a little touch of Yellow Ochre Color Box Chalk Ink to make the grass pop.
The word bubble and letters are computer generated, but the letters on the wooden sign are made with the Die-namics Bottle Cap letter dies by My Favorite Things. The Clouds and Grass dies are also by Die-namics and should still be available at MY Favorite Things online store.
I usually make my own card bases, but this time I’m using a 5 x 6-1/2 pre-made base by Recollections. Since they come in a set of 50 cards and envelopes, using them does save time. My patterned paper is a single sheet by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby. I usually buy these when they have a half-price sale on all the Paper Studio Papers, which they seem to have every few weeks.
The Challenge runs until the end of January, but the image is no longer free now. It may be purchased or you may wait until next month and request the February image. If you want to join in the future Bloobel Progressive Challenges, please sign up for her newsletter that insures you will get the image request each month.
Thanks for stopping by.

“You Rule My HEART!!!!” That’s what popped into my head as soon as I saw the “New Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge“ digi stamp by Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delight. The image is called “Honey’s Ruler” and can be found here. Janice’s images are always a “delight” to color, but when I saw this image I also remembered that I had this “ruler” ribbon somewhere, and I thought it would work perfect. Now I just had to find it!
The thought of the yellow ribbon also brought to mind one of my favorite color combos of black, white, gray and yellow. What do you think? I think it worked great. I wanted the words to be a little “wonky” looking so although I printed them on the computer, I didn’t make an effort to cut them out evenly. Along with the image also comes two great digital sayings, one of which I used on the inside of my card. I think the recipient of the card will be very happy!
I don’t usually use a pre-made card base, but on this one I used a white base made by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby. The image is printed on “Copic X-Press It Blending Card” and colored with Copic Markers. The solid cardstock is from Recollections and the patterned paper is named “Black and White Ribbon Stripe” by Canvas Corp. The corners are the stitched die from a set of fantastic corner dies by My Little Paper World. The ribbon, rhinestone, and buttons were in my stash and are probably from Joanns or Michaels.
