Sweet Compaion

Hi all I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.  
Today is my day to inspire you for Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.   This wonderful image is called Sweet Companion and you can find her here

I colored my image with copics and mounted her on this cool honeycomb paper.  I added the flowers and they are from Heartfelt Creations and are the Adriana blooms set.  The swirls behind are cut from my cricut.  The heart gem is from my stash as well as the gems in the centers of the flowers.  

The DT theme this week is as always Anything goes.  I do hope you will come play along with us at our Monthly challenge and you can find that here 

I am wishing you a wonderful day and happy crafting too.

Old Lady

Well Good morning to you all.  
Today  I am posting this sweet little lady  by Sandra Caldwell.   This is the image I chose to use so I could sent it to some of my "old" friends.  I have made 3 different cards with this one so far.  
I colored her with copics and looked for the perfect papers to go with her and her colors.  This one the back ground paper is from Recollections from Michaels.  The Sentiment is from sizzix and there are lots of fun ones in this pack.  The die cut that I used to cut the image from is also from sizzix and be beads are from Joanne Fabrics.  

So folks till next time Happy Crafting.

Under the Sea

Good Morning to you all.

The Theme this month for our challenge is"UNDER THE SEA".  I do hope you will come and join us this month and make a card to play along.  It doesn't have to be a card it can be anything but if you use an CCK image you get two chances to win.  Our bog  is here for you to come join in and maybe mark it as your favorite and come back each month.
My image was colored with copics,  On the background of the image I used some eye shadow and pan pastels to do the color of the sea. .  The background is a piece of aluminum foil and run through an embossing folder then I dropped different colors of alcohol inks.  I just let it dry and then cut a bit smaller then the base card.  I cut some what I call seaweed die cuts  from sizzix of different colors.  The I got some small shells from the beach and added those too for the final embellishment.

I do hope you will come join in our challenge this month.

Till next time Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you have a wonderful day!!

Good Morning to you all.  
Today is my day for your inspiration over at Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Challenge.   This month our challenge is "Easter or Spring"  I chose Spring and did my card in spring colors.  Spring is my favorite time of year with all the new flowers blooming.  I colored my sweet image with my copics and mounted her on a white card base with the designer paper behind her.  I wove the ribbon thro the paper and glued it to the back  I then added a pretty ribbon with my new bow maker.  I showed this image to my friend an she added the green gem at the top to add a bit more bling.  I did the background with eye shadow and then sprayed it with hair spray to fix it so it won't rub off.

Poppy Power Passion Flower

Hi everyone!  I am so happy with this image. I saw a card on the net somewhere that was similar but I changed it to be my own idea.  I took the flower from another one and I erased part of it so I could just have this part.   I wanted a background so I took some background stamps and stamped on a white sheet of card stock, and then I scanned it into my computer. I saved them as a jpeg.  Then I took the flower and erased the background. Once I erased the background I saved the flower as a png to save for later use.  I merged the flower over to the background and positioned it where I wanted it and saved it as a jpeg.    I will make my card with this one later. And I did another one with a script background and a purple flower. 
I colored the flower with my copics with the RV colors and green for the leaves.  

I do hope you all like it, as I am very pleased with this one.  

Thanks for looking.
