Going Green at The East Wind

Good morning everyone! And a very happy Saturday and a very happy 1st of November!  1st of November!!!!  Can you believe it!! I'm in shock!! This year seems to have flown by. And I should have had a bunch of Christmas shopping done already, but I don't have much of anything!

Alright... on to the new Challenge at The East Wind! We are on Challenge #18 and it is the first of the month. That means that we have our Freebie Challenge! If you haven't joined us at The East Wind, be sure you do!! And November's freebie is another AMAZING beauty from Kyra... Aurora Go Green! And what do we mean by Go Green?  Well... you can use green on your project.. or you can recycle something... Or Both! LOL

I went with a Tri-Shutter Card for Aurora. I love creating these cards. All of the papers are scraps. I added a bit of green on her and a bit of green paper. She is all colored with Copic Markers. The two snowflakes are actually wood accents and they are loaded up with some gold glitter. I added gold and maroon-ish dew drops. The swirls are from a Memory Box die. My two recycled items are the photo slide frame in the center and the bottle cap towards the back. I added a wrap of black wire and a gold bell onto the photo slide frame. I pounded the bottle cap to flatten it and it gives it such a great design I think. Then I painted it with some gold paint. I put a circle "Merry Christmas" sentiment into the bottlecap and filled it with Diamond Glaze. The poinsettia was cut with my Cameo and layered. I added two sizes of pearls to the center to finish that off. I did do a little bit of decoupage on Aurora. I popped part of her hat, the front of her scarf, the front of her dress and the basket. I also used my Prismacolor Premier Fine Line Black Marker to add some detailing and shading to Aurora and I used some Copic Opaque White to add some detailing as well! :)  Hope you like it!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Birthday Runner

Good morning! And a very happy Sunday to you all. I can't believe it is Sunday already!!  That is just crazy! And next week I have doctor appointments, so I'm out on Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm trying to get them all done at once LOL!!  Just that time of year.. I hate it!! o.O I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I'm sharing a card I created for a friend at work. She was going to visit a friend for her birthday. Her friend is a runner, so this is what I came up with for her:

I used an image from Stephanie Corfee Illustrations. And this little jogger wasn't actually listed for sale, so I sent her a message and she got it up for me!! So, Thank you Stephanie!! :)  I colored her up with my Copic Markers. I used really old old papers.. I think I have had these papers for at least 18 years LOL  My daughter is 20 and I've had them since I started.. so could be 20 years!! o.O  Old papers!  I have a LOT of old papers though... I tend to collect papers.. LOL I love paper!  I added some stitching around the edge. The rectangles are all Spellbinders dies. I added smaller gems on the sentiment and a bit larger at the bottom. And then I added the small corner of ribbon/bow. No decoupage on this image!!

Halloween with Delicious Doodles

Good morning! Kevin and I stopped and had Arby's last night for dinner because we were out running errands. We BOTH ended up sick too!! I think maybe it gave us food poisoning... I was up at 2 am sick... still have a huge headache. Not how I wanted to start the weekend o.O

So, today we are having our Halloween challenge at Delicious Doodles. I've used several different images to create a step card. And Teri adds so much detail to her images, that I really didn't add much color at all. Her images are already amazing!!  Here is what I've come up with:

So, as you can see, I've created a step card for this challenge. I used The Graveyard for the center of the step card. I've used my Prismacolor Pencils to add just a little bit of color on this image. I used some grays for the sky and shadows and green for the grass and that's it! I also popped the front two tombstones on that image. On the sides of the step card, I have used tombstones from Tombstone Collection. Happy Halloween is stamped at the top and that stamp is from My Craft Spot. I took my finger over the wet ink and tried to drag some of it up an down to make it a bit more creepier. Not sure if that really came across like I wanted it to LOL!!
