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!

Under the Sea….

Our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge for June is to make a “Shaker Card” and to use our “Gina Marie” Dies.  This was a no brainer for me, as I have plenty of her Beach and Sea oriented dies.

I cut my dies using white paper and colored them using my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Colored Pencils. The plastic Domes are available from here.  The sparkling beads used were a type of “Christmas Ice” bought at Hobby Lobby.  (I’m always picking up things that I think will look cool in a shaker card so I have them when needed.)

The circle background paper was an old scrap, but the wood-pattern paper was from a Glitz 6×6 Paper Pad called “Dapper Dan.”

The Shark Sticker was another dip into sticker notebook that I’ve had for years and years.  I’m determined to make use of as many as I can on my future cards!

I hope you can join us and maybe you’ll be the winner. The challenge runs through the end of June.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Ladies….

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.
