Life is Like….

It’s time again for our monthly “Bugaboo Challenge” at The Crafting Circle. I chose this image because it’s a little different from what I usually do, which is one of her “funky” older gals or guys.  This little guy is called “Riding A Bike,” and I loved the message that came with him.

He’s colored with my Copic Markers, and I used a Sukura Micron Black Pen to add the road and stones.  I don’t usually color in the complete background, but since it’s something I learned while taking a class at Kit and Clouder, I thought I’d give it a try.  I like how it came out and I’m sure I’ll do it again. Maybe next time it will a different medium.

The Clouds and Sun are Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.  The Twine is from Hobby Lobby.  The Peace Charm on the front of his bike is by Darice.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Digi Stamp site. She keeps adding new stamps each week and these and others are often on sale. She also has a great selection of $1 stamps.

For Your Readers…

Many of my friends and family are avid readers and I always enjoy making them new bookmarks.  Here are a few of my more recent ones. They make great gifts when something more than a card is needed:

The first one uses a cute “Edwin” stamp by Magnolia Stamps of Sweden. The image is colored with Copic Markers and Prisma Colored Pencils.  I used a We Are Memory Makers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper to round the corners. The ribbon and the charm were in my stash. (Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, but they were all I had.)

Bookmark with Magnolia Edwin

The second bookmark is made by using a giant paper clip. I used the Stitched Oval Dies from Die-Namics by My Favorite Things and just cut them in half to make them into a rainbow.  The Stitched Sun and Clouds are also from Die-Namics. (The book was also a great “read.”)
