Will Knit for Friends

It has taken me all week to complete this project to post to the House Mouse challenge before it closes. That's the pace my life is going lately, but alas I got it done. The theme of the challenge is "friends" and I thought this image conveyed perfectly something a friend does for friends. In fact, the name of the image is "Will Knit for Friends." I used my Kaiser "Utopia Collection" DP and configured my sentiment from PTI's "Mailbox Greetings". I colored my image with Copics. I have much to do so I must move on to the next project. Thanks for stopping by.

Copic Creations Challenge #39

My goodness the time is going by quickly and it's time for another Copic Creations challenge. Our sponsor this time is Tickled Pink Stamps and the image I worked with is called "20's Evie" from the Fashionette Li'l Lolita category. The theme this time is shading paper-pieced images. The main part of her dress and hat are paper-pieced and then shaded. I shaded her dress with YG21 and YG25. The brown part of the hat is shaded with E27 and E29 and the band of the hat is colored with E43, E44 and E47, although that part is not paper-pieced. I used Cosmo Cricket's "Material Girl" DP's and used a sentiment from "She's a Lady" from There She Goes stamps. I hope you like my stylin' young miss and I hope you get a chance to check out all the DTs' entries. I wish you all a wonderful week. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Bring Back Beautiful Challenge

I have another card to add to my Christmas stash and also to enter into Flourishes' "Bring Back Beautiful" challenge. The challenge is to show how you wrap up your cards with ribbon. My card features an image from the Christmas Classics set from Flourishes and papers from Basic Grey's "Jovial." My image is colored with Copics and hung with Red and White Twine, also from Flourishes. The large scallop was cut with PTI's Large Scallop Border die. I added some "holly" from a MS punch. I'm pleased with how it turned out. I'm loving this image and colored up another one to feature with a Spellbinder's die of another shape. This has been a busy week for me so I haven't done any blogging or sorry about that. Hopefully I can catch up with your blogs soon. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week-end.

Copic Creations Challenge #38

Good Monday morning and happy November to you! Once again it's time for another Copic Creations Challenge. Our challenge this time is sponsored by Make it Crafty and they provided our DT with some adorable images. The image I colored is called Whimsical Log. I used DP's from Kaiser's "Utopia" 6 x 6 paper pack and Webster's combo pack of "Lullabye Lane and Life's Portrait". The image down in the corner is called Maya Making Wishes from Whimsy Stamps. I resized her and reversed her horizontally. I had planned to place her on the log but I decided to put her in the corner instead. My sentiment is from Flourishes' "Kids at Play." As I began to color the mushrooms a big drop of color from my marker dripped next to it. After getting all that I could out with my Colorless Blender I covered up the remaining bit of color with the butterflies. Good thing, as I surely didn't want to start over. I hope you have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure you check out the prize being offered for this challenge, as well as the wonderful projects the DT came up with.
