Project One Hundred Seven

Welcome Back.
I am having so much fun learning how to use my Copic Markers.
My biggest fear with them is hair and skin. I was really excited
that the blog hop - challenge was an image with both hair and skin.

All Dressed Up Challenge Blog had a blog hop back on October 7th.
Once the hop was over we were given a free image to use to create a project
for the challenge portion. She was a super cute little girl.

Well just my luck. I finished my project last night. I decided not to work on this last night but do it this morning. I went to their page to get the url
for you to see there great pieces and the challenge ended 11 minutes ago. WAAAAA

Well here is my project anyways ...
 
So I like how I did her skin. I still need a few more markers then I think I would have loved it.
Not sure how I feel about the hair. I used 4 different colors. I think they were not the right colors plus I think I got really heavy handed with the hair. Well it is a work in progress. I need more colors LOL my hubby is going to love to read that.
The papers pattern and solids are all DCWV. The pattern is from The Girl Power Stack.
 
Thanks for visiting and
Have a Magical Day

Project One Hundred Six

Hello Again!

Well today I went WAY out of my comfort zone. I created a d├ęcor piece.
It is one of three special pieces I created for an audition, Hopefully I will have more to
tell you about that later.

So here is my project
 
I took a burlap canvas and started my paper fun from there.
 
 
I used my Cricut cartridge, Create a Critter 2, for the turkey.
Cricut Cartridge, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2, for the pumpkin.
I used 4 different cartridges for the leaves: Autumn Celebrations, Create a Critter, Mickey and Friends, and Mother's Day Bouquet.
I used Rosettes and Ribbons for the center piece of the bow with the phrase from Create a Critter 2 also. The ribbon I bought at Walmart. I had a great time making this piece.
 
All the paper is my favorite company of course, DCWV. I used the Fall and Halloween Basics Stack 8.5 x 11 cardstock. I did use one sheet of paper from their Stack 8.

Have a Magical Day!

Project One Hundred Four

Hello Again!!

So for today's post I am stepping way out of my comfort box.

     So here is the background for todays post.
Years ago I started following this crafters blog. Never meet her, but I would make comments on her posts. She was on Peachy Keen's. This wonderful crafter is Vivienne. I would oogle and drool
over her coloring of the different stamps.
     Well Years have gone by, and I love making cards and I would use sentiment stamps all the time. I started buying a few stamps here and there but nothing big. In January I started buying actual stamps. This past June by dear sweet husband bought me 21 Copic Markers. Boy did he not know what he was starting. So I have been learning to color. Some days are great other days my markers drip on my image. Well I still visit Viv's blog.
     Well two or three weeks ago she had a post about digital stamps. The company was called All Dressed Up Stamps. I have never worked with digital stamps so I am still learning. Well they have a challenge blog. I love a good challenge, but I started looking at the Design Team then I started looking at the ladies entering the challenges. OH MY GOODNESS!! These ladies know how to color. So I looked around and they offered some free stamps, so I thought I would give it a try. So I have been working on this image for awhile. The first time my husband called my and I jerked my hand, the second attempt my yellow Copic dripped big time. This was my third attempt. I like it, but I will see. I am doing this manly to challenge myself, plus I hope to keep learning.

So here it is



I am entering in All Dressed Up Challenge Blog's anything goes challenge.

OK pattern paper is DCWV's.
The image is All Dressed Up's Freebie
I used Stickles on the corners and Glossy Accents
on the eyes.
I used my Copics To color.

Have a Magical Day

Project One Hundred One



Welcome Back.
 
We all have our favorite products. Today I will play with my all time favorite pattern papers,
DCWV (Die Cuts With a View). They are really my go to pattern paper.
Well the have a monthly sketch challenge on their blog DCVW Blog.
They have a Layout Challenge and a Card Challenge. I usually enter both, or I try.
They choose their top 15 picks from the entries, then from the top 15 of each category
they randomly choose one winner from each. That person wins PAPER! I won one month and
received almost $80.00 in retail product. I was so excited!!
 
Ok so here is the sketch for this month's layout.
 
Here is what I did with it.
 
 
 
SO I used of course I used DCWV paper. The stack I used was the Citrus Stack, which by the way was one of the stacks I received for free!! The solid paper background for the photo's is DCWV also, from the colored paper collections. I cut all the papers and photos with my paper cutter except the circles. The circles are cut with my Cricut using Cricut Craft Room Basics. All the sentiments are from the same stack. I did a bit of journaling about the pictures. These were taken back in 2012. This was our girls first visit to an Ocean. We were at Hollywood Beach in Florida. We all had such a great time. 
 
I used Stampin Up ink to ink the edges. I used Marina Mist, Old Olive and Real Red.
You still have a few days to enter, so join in!

 
Have a Magical Day!
