DT Day at Meljen's Designs

Happy Tuesday everyone. Today is my DT Day at Meljen's Design and I'm going to share a new card with you.

For this card I used the wonderful Frog In My Pocket that you can find at Meljen's Designs. I had a lot of fun coloring this little guy and then decoupaging him. I colored him with my Copic markers. I colored him with dots and then I used the Colorless Blender to add additional dots. I love coloring this way. I think it adds a lot of texture!  I have had that pocket die cut for a long time too and I've been waiting to use it!! So, I used my little pocket die and added the sentiment. I inked around the pieces of white paper and I added the twine. I added the blue gems.

Challenge #5 @ The East Wind

Good morning!!! Today we begin a new challenge at The East Wind!! The theme for Challenge #5 is Humour (Create Something Humerous). I had a difficult time with this LOL!! But here is what I came up with:

For this one I used  Rang Climbing, which you can find at The East Wind Etsy Shop. I love these kitty images :)  I kept the card all black and white. I popped two of the small kitties and then the larger one as well. I added the white Candi at the bottom. I also added two gems on the side of the sentiment. The sentiment was created on my pc. I hope to see you playing along with this our new challenge!!!

Easter At Delicious Doodles

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!! WOOT!!! How exciting!!  And today we are starting a new challenge at Delicious Doodles. Our theme this week is Easter. There are a lot of fun Easter images at the Delicious Doodles Store!!! Here is what I came up with for our Easter theme:

As you can see I decided to make a waterfall card out of these adorable Easter images. I used Easter Chick, Easter Egg, Bear With Easter Egg, Bunny With EggDoggie With Egg, and Kitty With Egg. I paper pieced each egg with some of the scrap papers that I have. All of the images where colored with Copic markers and I popped the paws, wings, beak on the chick. I added the ribbon, the flowers and gems, the eyelet, the Easter sticker. I also added the Happy Easter stamp. All of the papers are scraps of the same papers I've been using. These papers are at least a year old and I'm trying to use them up LOL  Good way to use scraps :)

Meljen's Color Challenge

Good morning everyone and Happy Thursday!! I hope you all are having a great week. We are almost to the end. Today is a new challenge at Meljen's Designs and this challenge is a color challenge. The palette is some sequins and they are in pastel colors:

That is a fun palette to work with!! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!  Here is what I came up:
No dimension on this card... just colored and flat!  I used A Girl and Her Overalls. I added the stitching around the image. I used a sketch from Smeared and Smudged. The papers are all scraps from papers I've been using for all my spring and Easter creations. I colored the image with Copic markers. I sprayed the background with three different colors of sprays. The little banners, the circles, and the two lines on the inside are all stickers. There are two swirls, the one on the outside and then one on the inside --Those are stamps - Inkadinkado Sketchy Flourishes. As is the Celebrate Spring - Pink by Design Hoppy Easter.

Animal Antics Card No 2

Evening everyone!!!  I'm back home after a long day of riding. We had a nice, frustrating at times ride LOL We got lost a couple of times on the way home. But we had a really nice day!! Now I'm back home, showered and trying to relax a bit. And I'm here to post my 2nd card for our midway at Open-Minded Crafting Fun Animal Antics Challenge!

Here is my second creation using Jayna from The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette. I absolutely love Nikki's art!!  Absolutely gorgeous creations!!  I used my copic markers to color the image. I decoupaged the koi around her. I inked the edge of the image paper. The papers are scraps from a Club Scrap pack. I added the ribbon with the absolutely wonderful little fish charm that I got as a gift from Vicky!!!  I love that charm!! I added the pearls.

Animal Antics at Open-Minded Crafting Fun

Good morning everyone!!  Another happy Saturday. It is going to be beautiful here. I took the motorcycle test yesterday, so I have my license and we are going to go for a ride today. It is going to be perfect weather! This morning we are going to head to Atlanta to have breakfast with my sister and then we are going to head to Madison I think. The kids and the dogs will hold down the fort for a few hours :)

This morning we have announced the winners and DT Favorites from Challenge #6 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. At noon our midway post will go live for our Animal Antics challenge. You have one more week to get into the challenge.

Here is my first creation:

For this card I've used Flying Monkey Sassy from Sassy Studio Designs. The papers are from a DCWV Stack - Animal Crackers. I've colored the image with my Copic markers and I have decoupaged the image a bit. The oval and scalloped oval are Spellbinders dies. I created the sentiment and added the gem. That's it!  I love Sassy Studio images. She is fantastic! There are a whole set of Wizard of Oz Sassy's too and they are all fantastic!
