C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 426 – 27th of July – Summer

DTbadge

I love summer, and when I think of summer, I think of the Beach. Bugaboo Digi Stamps make a series of adorable Mermaid and fish themed stamp set called, “UNDER THE SEA BIRTHDAY SET“. I made a series of cards utilizing all the cute images. I coloured them with Copic markers and layered them on papers from my stash. The sentiments are from the same set.

Please check out Bugaboo Stamps. You will be amazed. Note: They constantly are introducing new images and retiring old ones – don’t miss out and be disappointed. I personally own over 50 of their images with 25% no longer a part of their collection! Bugaboo is this week’s sponsor, please support them. Friday’s are Freebie Fridays!

GUEST DESIGNER at Outlawz -Twisted Thursday – With a Twist – Stars – June 1st

Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free! They have a fabulous blog – full of challenges, tutorials, forum, freebies, gallery and more. I am designing for their Thursday Twist Challenges. This challenge is “open” with a added twist each week. This week’s Twist is “Stars.” To find out more about this fabulous group click on the link below.

The Outlawz Challenges

I made two cards to mark the challenge. I started with making the galaxy background. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 watercolors. After taping my watercolour paper to a board, using a wide brush, I applied clear water to the paper. Next I randomly added various bright colours: yellow, orange, red, blue, purple. Once they dried I coloured the background with dark blue and black leaving small bits of the bright colours to show through. I let dry again. For the final touch I splattered white over the background to create stars. I set aside to dry.

Card 1

For my first card, I did a space theme. I used Hambo‘s digi stamp, Space Boy Set. I coloured him with Copic marks and fussy cut him and the planets out. Next I glued them on the background. I added mini die cut stars from SSS. I mounted the background on black card stock. The final step was adding a sentiment by Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments – Digital Sentiments.”

 Card 2

For my second card, I did a nursery rhyme theme. I used Whimsy Stamps digi stamp, Over The Moon Cow. I coloured him with Copic marks and fussy cut him and the moon out. Next I glued them on the background. I added mini die cut stars from SSS. I mounted the background on black card stock. The final step was adding a sentiment by Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments – Digital Sentiments.”

C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 405 – Sketch

Sketch 020317This week’s challenge is a Sketch Challenge. I used Barnaby Bee by Digital Delights. I coloured Barnaby with my Copic markers and added sparkle to his wings with clear Wink of Stella. I layered him using dimensionals to make him pop off the cards and created the background with paper from my stash. The final touch was three gems.
