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!
If this big guy doesn’t make you smile…nothing will! His name is “Ogre” and is another of Lisa’s “Quirky” Bloobel Digital Stamps. I wanted him for a birthday card, but I couldn’t resist putting “Smile” on the front. Inside I’ll put – It’s Your Birthday!” That should work just fine.
I made the card following Sketch #4 on the Crafting Circle “Just For Fun” Wednesday Monthly Challenge. Come over and take a peek and join us for some fun. I love following a sketch.
I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Pencils. I used Diamond Glaze by Judi-kins on his eyes and Wink Of Stella on the background of the oval. That’s hard to see in the photo, but trust me…it looks great in person.
I’ve used two dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The first is their Stitched Ovals and the second is their Scalloped and Stitched Rectangles. The Pattern Papers are also from a MFT stack called “Rainbow Stripes.” The sentiment was hand written. Other papers and the Embroidery Floss was from my scraps.
Thanks for dropping by.
For the November Crafty Awesomeness Challenge, I made this cute Thanksgiving Card using a Bugaboo Digital Stamp called Ruby Calendar Month – Thanksgiving, and I’ve colored her with Copic Markers. I’ve also used a little Diamond Glaze on the pie plate and her glasses.
The Corner Dies are a set from “My Paper World.” The papers are from a “Cloud 9 Paper Stack” called “Speciality Papers” and the Kraft Base Paper is from MFT. The Egg Corns are from my yard.
The “Happy Thanksgiving” stamp is from MFT and was part of a Pure Innocence” Stamp Set, but I think it’s been retired.
CHALLENGES I’VE ENTERED:
It’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.
