This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. For my card I used an oval verses a circle and adjusted the sketch to fit a standard A2 card format. I used a digi from Delicious Doodles, called “On the Lookout”. I stop coloured it with my Copics. Next I cut it out using my oval Dienamics from MFT. I cut out some white embossed card stock and layered it according to the sketch.

Every year I make 130 Christmas cards for the Belmont Long Term Care Home. It is my way of paying it forward for the fabulous care they provided my mother. I love to colour while watch TV so I will stamp numerous images and hand colour them with Copic Markers, Zig Water Colour Brushes, Derwent Inktenses Pencils, or Distress inks. Once I get a number completed, I then sit down and start to assemble my cards. No two cards are the same, While I may use the same image, I colour them differently, use a different card format, different card stock, etc. I also make Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween, Easter/Spring, Valentine’s Day, Remembrance Day (for the veterans), plus birthday cards. It keeps me busy, and I really enjoy it. I also make cards for myself and friends. I dropped the cards off for distribution on December 1, 2016.

This week we have a sketch challenge. Our sponsor for this challenge is DRS Designs. They have the coolest set of stained glass stamps that allow you to convert your regular stamps into “faux” stained glass panels. For my card I am using Large Stained Glass – 1133P, but they also have an arched, oval, and small rectangle versions. For the flower pattern, I used Delicious Doodles – Apple Blossom. For my other examples, I used three different flower digis from A Day of Daisies. Vs me trying to tell you how do use this stamp, I will refer you to a YouTube Video by the Frugal Crafter – Lindsay Weirich - Stained Glass Look With Any Stamp. To color my images I used Derwent Watercolour Pencils on Neenah Solar White 80lb paper.

Challenge 97 at Simply Create Too invites you to make a card with the theme, “BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE”. I used this wonderful little digi stamp called, On the Lookout by Delicious Doodles. I added minimal colour to the image with my Copic markers, keeping to cool greens/blues. I frame the image with Memory Box – Frostyville border also in the cool tones. I was trying to depict a cold frosty morning. The stamp is from Hero Arts.
Our challenge runs from October 23rd until November 5th. Please join us.

I love the digis at Delicious Doodle – AKA: ArtiDoodles. I made this card using one of her stamps called Fae. I coloured her with Copics, added a little glossy accents to her eyes, and glitter to her wings. Because the image is so detailed. I opted for a simple card front.
I entered my card into the following challenges:
