i am so excited to be a guest star with the jingle belles for the current prompt – thank you lauren and stephanie; they welcome ideas for prompts so i submitted my idea of HO HO H2O, based on my LOVE of colouring with water based products. so, for the next two weeks participants will be challenged to “create a card which features icicles, snow, frozen ponds, or any water-related image; OR use water-based products on your project, such as watercolors, water-based markers or sprays, etc.” i coloured this snow woman with a paintbrush and both distress ink pads and letraset aqua markers and added stickles to her snowflake hair, which i love. i hope you’ll play along too and as always, thanks for popping by.
i’m always making christmas cards, although i make more than i actually need so i usually donate some to my local hospital. i coloured this older impression obsession snowman with distress inks and letraset aqua markers, die cut with the memory box snow globe and added a peel off sentiment, punched snowflakes and tiny bow. i’m submitting it to these challenges:
sandra’s rudolph day – the 25th of every month
jingle belles – holiday bingo and i used bling, stickers and ribbon
crafty ann’s – christmas in august
christmas stampin’ all year long – non traditional colours
challenge up your life – christmas in summer
thanks for popping by.
brenda (floral fantasies) is having a fun candy challenge to make a card or project that has poppies on it, hints at the colour or idea of poppies or an has an image coloured in with the beautiful poppy colours. i’ve had this penny black poppies stamp for some time, but this is the first time i inked it up; it’s coloured with distress inks and letraset aqua markers with stickles in the flower centres and i used my new memory box butterflies die – i love it! i cased a layout in paper creations summer 2012 by the talented kendra sand. thanks for popping by.
there are some challenges during their release week, so i had time to create this for the flourishes sketch challenge, literally following this clean and simple layout. the image is watercoloured with distress inks and markers, die cut and attached to the DP layer and mat. the sentiment is from the same set. thanks for popping by.
this month’s flourishes bring back beautiful challenge is the beauty of summer and/or vacation; i chose the orchid, watercoloured it with distress inks and letraset aquamarkers and popped it with foam dots. thanks for popping by.
