Journal Cover….

I’m doing a second Bugaboo project for our monthly Bugaboo Crafty Challenge and this one is WAY out of my comfort zone!  It’s a Coloring Page, which turned into quite a challenge for me.  It can be found here.

I planned to use one of my favorite Copic color combos…black, yellow, and gray, but it turned out that I needed to add another color to the mix.  I chose a pretty turquoise to compliment the other colors. I’ve also used lots of Wink-Of-Stella Clear or Black Glitter Brush Pens on the image, but it’s hard to see in the photo. I’ve added a rhinestone to the center of each of the flowers and I think it really makes them pop.

I was so pleased with how this came out that I added the date to the front and now plan to use it as a Journal Cover.

CHALLENGES I ENTERED:

Smile…!

If this big guy doesn’t make you smile…nothing will!  His name is “Ogre” and is another of Lisa’s “Quirky” Bloobel Digital Stamps.  I wanted him for a birthday card, but I couldn’t resist putting “Smile” on the front. Inside I’ll put – It’s Your Birthday!” That should work just fine.

I made the card following Sketch #4 on the Crafting Circle “Just For Fun” Wednesday Monthly Challenge. Come over and take a peek and join us for some fun.  I love following a sketch.

I’ve colored him with my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Pencils. I used Diamond Glaze by Judi-kins on his eyes and Wink Of Stella on the background of the oval. That’s hard to see in the photo, but trust me…it looks great in person.

I’ve used two dies by Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  The first is their Stitched Ovals and the second is their Scalloped and Stitched Rectangles. The Pattern Papers are also from a MFT stack called “Rainbow Stripes.” The sentiment was hand written. Other papers and the Embroidery Floss was from my scraps.

Thanks for dropping by.

Penguin Christmas….

I’m very pleased with how this card came out, especially since I wasn’t happy with my choice of colors. I love it when a card has such an unexpected “Happy Ending.”

The image is called “Penguin Willie Snow Day” and is by digital artist Janice Cullen Collyer and is on sale right now.  She has a really cute choice of Penguin images that are perfect for winter or Christmas Cards. You can find her images at the Scrapper’s Delight Digi Store.

The pattern paper was a scrap from a Disney Paper Pack from last year called “Disney All Seasons Mega Pad.” It covers all the holidays through-out the year and uses some very interesting color combos.

The dies I used are Wonky Ovals, Icicles, and Merry Christmas, which are all Die-namics by My Favorite Things. I covered the Icicle border with Zig “Wink of Stella” Clear Brush Glitter Pen, and I also dabbed some Ranger “Stardust Stickles” on the snowflakes.  I dotted the image and card with white watercolor paint to make it look like falling snow.

CHALLENGES ENTERED:

 

Ladies and Gentlemen….

It’s Friday and we have a new Freebie Friday Progressive Challenge Image for you from Janice Cullen Collyer of Scrapper’s Delights. This is also from her Circus set. The image is a choice of “Word Art” to be used with her Circus Images.

I chose “Ladies And Gentlemen” to go with my Ringmaster image.  My image is colored with Copic Markers and placed against a background made from an assortment of papers and images cut from the “Le Cirque” Paper Stack by Graphic 45.

I have highlighted her hat band and some of her clothes with Ranger “Star Dust” Stickles, and I also used Zig’s “Wink of Stella” Clear Glitter Pen and Silver Glitter Pen.
