“Eat More Ham”…

…Can’t you just hear him saying bleating that?  I sure can.  I really felt for him when I saw this image for the first time and just had to have it for a Thanks Giving card.  I have some very quirky friends who will love it.

I made this card for our current monthly “Just-For-Fun Challenge” at The Crafting Circle.  We always have some nice sketches to follow.

The image is a digital one by Boobel and is named “Turkey”. He is priced at only $1.50 right now. I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers, a few Prisma Colored Pencils, and I highlighted him with black and red Sakura Pens. I also used Color Box Chestnut Roan Ink to highlight the image. I fussy-cut and popped him with foam tabs, and I couldn’t resist giving him some Google Eyes.

The papers are from a Cloud 9 Stack called “Speciality Papers” and is quite old. It’s a great stack because it covers all 4 seasons.

The letters are cut from the Bottle Cap Letter Dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The assorted Sequins, which come in several boxed color sets, are also from MFT. I also used 2 of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Square Dies because I can never get them all cut the same size! LOL.

“I Deserve A Treat!….”

Hello again. My Design Team card for this month’s “Crafty Awesomeness Challenge” is by the Queen of Quirky herself, Lisa Bloobel of Bloobel Stamps. To say that her work tickles my funny bone is a vast understatement, especially this image of “Witch Trick.”

My image is colored with Copic Markers, which I mainly tried to stay within the Warm Gray color tones. I don’t usually use them but I like how they look, so I’m sure that I’ll be using them a more in the future.

I made my card base from Black Licorice paper by My Favorite Things, but the other papers I used were from my scraps box.

I’ve used an assortment of “Google-Eyes” to dot the background and I also put a small one on her eye.  I’m not sure where I bought these, but you can find them in just about any craft store in the aisle where they have supplies for making dolls. I also pulled out an old photo sticker for a sentiment that must be at least 20 years old. I had to doctor the glue a little on that, but I thought it went perfect with the Witch.

Oops…I should also mention that I used a Nestability Rectangle Die to cut out the image area.

All in all, I was very pleased with how the card came out. Please join us and add your projects to the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge Blog. And most of all…Have Fun!
