The Deep Blue Sea….

I really think this digital image by Bloobel made for a very unique card, especially since I have several friends who love to skin dive.  The image is called “Swimming Diver” and was released as the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for July.

I colored the image with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils.   I also used a touch of “Diamond Glaze” on the goggles and bubbles.  I then fussy-cut the image and attached her with foam pops.

I think I found the perfect pattern papers in my stash to use on this card. The “Sand/Beach” paper was a single sheet of paper by DCWV that I’ve had for several years, and the “Water” paper was from the “Happy Place” stack by Dean Lizzy for American Crafts.

The Dies are by Gena Marie, Die-Namics, and Memory Box.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a great summer and keeping cool!

scrappershopIt’s Blog Hop Time at Scrapper’s Delight. If you’ve reached us from here…you are in the right place. This week we are featuring the new Steampunk Images by Janice Cullen Collyer.  Make sure to take advantage of her generous coupon included below.

My image is called “Lady Constance” and can be found here…. I colored her with Copic Markers and used a White Gelly Roll Pen for highlights. I fussy-cut the images and stacked them with 3D Black Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives, which are available at Hobby Lobby. The printed paper is from a stack called “Accomplished” by Authentique. The clock and her lips are coated with Diamond Glaze by Judi Kins.

Time to Rock and Roll!

Hello everyone,

I’ve been in the middle of a mini “scrap room” redo to try and make my supplies more easily accessible while I’m crafting. It’s funny how you change your “style” just a little bit, and you find that you have to shuffle things around again to have them within easy reach. If not, you feel like you get up a million times to get something and that’s such a waste of precious crafting time.

Since I’ve signed up for several of the Kit and Clowder online coloring classes, I’ve been adding to my Copic Markers and my Prisma Premium Colored Pencils. I definitely want to keep all of these within easy reach. If you still haven’t tried these classes, please check them out. There’s even a free class you can take, and you can’t beat that!

Since I’ve been on Face Book, I’ve also discovered some new digital artists whose stamps range from sweet to zany and you’ll see many of them featured on my upcoming cards. They are the best of the best…IMHO.

Speaking of these new artists, my first card posted has an image by…Conie Fong. This was made for a sweet little girl who just turned 5. Thank you Conie for such a cute image.
