This card was made following a sketch from The Crafting Circle Monthly Blog. The image used on the card is one issued by Bloobel for their May Progressive Challenge. The image is called “Fairy Pig.”
I colored the image with my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils. I used Spellbinder Scalloped Circle Dies and Rectangle Dies. The Happy Birthday is a new die I just bought by Die-Namics from My Favorite Things. The Type was computer set.
Thanks for stopping by.
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!
This is my newest card. It was made with a free digi called “Rainy Days” which was offered for the Scrapper’s Delight April Progressive Challenge. I sure wish we had some puddles down here. It’s hot and dry as can be. I don’t think we’ve had any April Showers this year!
I colored the image with my Copic Markers and the Sentiment is computer printed. I’ve used a sheet of Pattern Paper from the MFT paper stack called “Plaid Patterns.” I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to score the bottom inch of the card and finished that off with rounded corners and a bit of blue and white Twine from my stash. The Blue Sequins are also from My Favorite Things.
I then used a Hexagon Die from Gina Marie which I traced around and hand-cut out.
This is my take on the Bloobel Progressive Challenge for February. I thought that the digi stamp was perfect for several birthdays that I had coming up later this year. The image is called “BAKE ME A CAKE” and you can find her here at Bloobel.
I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers and I’ve also used a few Prisma Colored Pencils, plus a Jelly Roll White Pen. The die-cut Numbers are by Sizzix Momenta and bought at Hobby Lobby. The papers were single sheets also from Hobby Lobby.
This is the image for the first Progressive Challenge hosted by the Queen of Quirky – Lisa Graham, owner of Bloobel Digital Stamps. When I first saw the image, I had absolutely no idea of what I could or would do with it. Then things slowly fell into place. 🙂
I colored the image with my favorite coloring medium, my Copic Markers and some parts are enhanced with my Prisma Colored Pencils. I also used a little touch of Yellow Ochre Color Box Chalk Ink to make the grass pop.
The word bubble and letters are computer generated, but the letters on the wooden sign are made with the Die-namics Bottle Cap letter dies by My Favorite Things. The Clouds and Grass dies are also by Die-namics and should still be available at MY Favorite Things online store.
I usually make my own card bases, but this time I’m using a 5 x 6-1/2 pre-made base by Recollections. Since they come in a set of 50 cards and envelopes, using them does save time. My patterned paper is a single sheet by “The Paper Studio” from Hobby Lobby. I usually buy these when they have a half-price sale on all the Paper Studio Papers, which they seem to have every few weeks.
The Challenge runs until the end of January, but the image is no longer free now. It may be purchased or you may wait until next month and request the February image. If you want to join in the future Bloobel Progressive Challenges, please sign up for her newsletter that insures you will get the image request each month.
Thanks for stopping by.
