Our featured artist for the “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” for September is non other than the very gifted artist Mr. Rick St. Dennis. This image is called “Excavation for Skulls” and is available here. Rick has some great images that cover all occasions, but I especially like his “Spooky” ones. This one will give me a start on my Halloween Cards for this year.
The image was colored with my Prisma Colored Pencils and was cut with my “Wonky Ovals” Die-Namics by My Favorite Things. The Rolled Flower Roses and other flowers are also made from Dies by Die-namics. The Branch Die is a Tim Holtz by Sizzix one. The “Sequins” are from My Favorite Things and the other Black Decorations are from Hobby Lobby.
Please come and join us and maybe you’ll be this month’s winner.
CHALLENGES I’VE ENTERED:
This card is for the “Crafty Awesomeness” May Challenge. The featured artist this month is Digital Artist Rick St. Dennis. I chose this saucy lady called “Morning Goddess Edie.” I loved all the cats gathered around her feet and meowing for their breakfast! How many of you go through the name thing each morning?
I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and dotted the background with a Gray Copic Marker and with White Opal Liquid Pearls. The Paper I used is from a stack called “Animal Prints” by America Crafts. I had just picked it up on sale at a Beals Outlet and thought it would go perfect with the cats.
I used the Stitched Scalloped Oval Dies by Gina Marie and also the Bottle Cap Letters by Die-Namics by MFT.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you grab an image and play along with us this month.
Here’s my card for The “June Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.
I’m sure that we’ve all had days when we can identify with this “cutting-edge” image by digital artist Rick St. Dennis. This image is called “Bang Your Head Slowly” and can be found here at Zibbet.
I’ve colored the image with Copic Markers and used Prisma Colored Pencils for the eyes. The black and red colored cardstock is by Recollections. The checked paper is from the “Mother Goose” paper stack by Graphic 45, and the other patterned paper is called “Black Swirl Roses” by Recollections.
I also used a large Friskars Flower Punch and a small one made by E.K. Success. The small letters are a Die by Die-Namics from MFT. The large Alphabet Stickers are by Making Memories and must be at least 10 years old. The black and white stickers are “Thickers” by A.C. The rhinestones were in my stash.
