Creative Craft Cottage-Must use flowers

For the design team at Creative Craft Cottage we were sponsored by Star Stampz.                                                  No automatic alt text available.        The image I used is titled My Sweet Sunflower.  Here is what I created                                                                15994831_1384319734960051_206823969720077711_o     My picture came out a little sideways lol.  I love to create my background paper so for this I used a plastic liner that I got from something I bought at the grocery store.  I then used my spray inks that color coordinated with the way I colored the image.  I really wanted the image to pop so I layered it on black paper ( it doesnt show real well in the photo but the background paper is also matted on black paper).  Now for a confession….I had to add the embossed Hello because I had an ink accident after I had put the card together and needed a way to hide it lol.  I think it worked though…my happy accident.


CCC Digi Creations-Add diecuts and/or punches

For our challenge at CCC Digi Creations was to use diecuts and/or punches.  My image was Winter Games 3 by Fabrika Fantasy.                                                                                                                                                   No automatic alt text available.    I used a border punch and a small punch to create all the snowflakes.  I also used snow texture with a little bit of glitter to create the snow around their feet.                                                                                                      15937143_1384305888294769_6912389174453820417_o

Dragonfly Dreams-‘Thanks’

For the design team at Dragonfly Dreams I used an image by Crafty sentiments titled Flora.                                Image may contain: text       I colored the image with copic markers ( which I am really trying to improve on and I realized I should probably wear my glasses when coloring ).  I really wanted to add some sparkle to my card so the image would pop off the background.                                                                                                                                    15895948_1376903782368313_6352211110761312309_o

Creative Craft Cottage- Add ribbon and/or pearls

For the design team at Creative Craft Cottage I used an image by Lemon Shortbread titled Wildflower Basket Fairy                                                                                                                                                                                 No automatic alt text available.  For my card I colored the image with my copic markers.  I am really trying to get better with my coloring.  I still don’t own a lot of copic markers so I am limited to the colors I can use but I am hoping to add more markers to my collection soon.  I used a precut background and threaded it with ribbon and then added a few pearls for embellishment.                                                                                                                 15844740_1376911002367591_1827575486676343756_o

Dark ‘N’ Daring

For the design team at Dark ‘n’ Daring I used an image by Rick St Dennis titled Frost Dragon 2.
Image may contain: 1 person    Anyone who knows me knows I love dragons!  So when I saw this image I just had to use it.  I colored the image with colored pencils and then added what is suppose to be a grey gauze for creating ‘mummies’ behind it.  I loved the way the texture was a little messy and tore up looking.  I thought it really worked well to give texture to the card while staying within the color tone that I wanted.                     15590935_1358103564248335_8297061398763079177_o

Angie’s Digital Stamps-Anything Goes

For the design team at Angie’s Digital Stamps I used an image titled Owl on a Tree Limb.  I wanted the owl to have a layer of color so I chose to use chalk to color the image in. I also knew I wanted the image to be the star of the show so I opted to keep the rest of the card very minimal.                                                        15774740_1374032839322074_8972603799919320960_o  I hope everyone had a wonderful New years!!!
