I’m NOT Angry!!!!!!!

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.

Ever Feel Like This?

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.
