A Rose for You

Morning Peeps.  Hope this finds you cool enough for the hot summer days we have been having.  It's the first of the month and time for another patterned paper challenge at CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.  It was so nice seeing all the entries for last month.  It couldn't be an easier challenge.  Always Anything Goes and the only requirement is to use patterned paper, a little or a lot.

Here is my card for this month.  I used a acrylic stamp rather than a digi this time.  It's "Rose" from Technique Tuesday.  I colored it with Copics.  The patterned paper is from Carta Bella Yesterday 6x6 pad.  The roses on the paper worked out well for the rose image.  The black cardstock is from Recollection as is the bling strip.  Try as I might, I couldn't get the rose image to photograph in the pink color rather than the lavender that it insisted on.  I tried different camera settings, lighting, etc. and it still shows lavender.  It is really a old rose color,  And of course, the bling has a lot of reflection.  Someday . . .

The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge 7/22

Another Wednesday and time for another sketch challenge at The Outlawz.  Our sponsor for this month is Make it Crafty.  My image is called Christmas Gifts.  Well, as you can see, I didn't color the gifts Christmas-y.  I decided to make it more birthday than Christmas.  As you can see, I rotated the image 90 degrees.  I used lace and a bling strip instead of ribbon and a flourish.

The Sketch:

Materials used:
Black Recollections cardstock
Pink American Crafts cardstock
Patterned Paper by Echo Park
Copic markers
image from Make it Crafty
Miscellaneous flowers from my stash
Bling from Recollections

Tuesday Throwdown Tic Tac Toe 7/14

Morning Peeps.  It's time for another fun challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown.  This week the challenge is a tic tac toe.  You can follow it just like you were playing tic tac toe with your friends, diagonally, across or up and down.  Use each box when you decide which on of the five ways you want to go.  For my card, I used the top row across - stamp, pattern paper and brads.  The sponsor for this challenge is Milk Coffee.
The digi stamp is Little Mermaid from Milk Coffee.  The color in her cheeks are brads.  I created the pattern paper by dripping Distress Ink into shaving cream and putting laying a piece of cardstock over it.  You can find a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here for this technique.  It's messy, but fun.
Materials Used:
Shaving cream
Distress Ink re-inkers
American Craft cardstock and foil cardstock
Copic markers
Wink of Stella Glitter pen
Want2Scrap bling
Unknown brads
Foam tape
Spellbinders Die Frame 7
