I colored the image using my copics.  I used the new doodle bug zoo paper collection to create this card.   I found a giraffe stencil in my stash and decided to use it on this card. It was a perfect time to use this stencil.   I used distress oxide ink to create the giraffe stencil background.  I die cut some leaves and placed them around the stitched dic cut circles.  I die cut the sentiment out using a flag banner die and I finished the card off with some enamel dots.

Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge-Anything but a Card

Hello Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by.  Today starts a new challenge over at Crafty Sentiments Designs.  This week's theme is anything but a card.  I decided to alter a pizza box and I used  Isobel-Seashell, she is so adorable.  I am getting into the mermaid mood so this cutie was perfect to color up.

I colored her up using my copics and I decided to cut her out using a stitched circle die.  I used a paper stack that I had in my stash.  I used some distress inks and a wavy stencil to create the water scene.  I layered a scalloped doily behind the image and cut out some bubbles using a die from my stash.  You can't have a mermaid and underwater scene without the seaweed and starfish.  So I die cut some seaweed and starfish out and added them around the image.  I then added some pearls and the sentiment at the top. To add some dimension, I added nuevo clear drops for the bubbles.



Copic Colors Used:
Skin: E13, 11, 00, 0000
Hair: E59, 37, 33, 31, 50
Shell: E25, 23, 21
Mermaid's Tail: BG 49, 23, 11, 10, 
White gel pen, sky blue, baby blue, and turquoise spica pens

I am in love with this project, love the way it turned out.  That's all I have for you today, don't forget to check out what the other lovely ladies created for this theme over on the blog.  Thanks for stopping by and we will chat soon!

La-La Land Crafts Inspirational Monday

Good Morning friends, Happy Monday to you.  It's Memorial Day here in the states and we spend this day remembering those who served in our armed services. This is my last GDT post for La-La Land Crafts this month.  I want to thank Irina and team for allowing me to the opportunity to share some of my creations using La-La Land Crafts products.   Now on to my project this week.   This week's challenge was to create something using three or more dies.

I created a card using Heart Glasses Marci.   She is so adorable with her heart glasses and balloon.  I decided to use designer papers that I had in my stash to create this card.  I stamped the image out on Hammill 80 lb digital cover card stock and colored her using my copics.  I cut her out using my brother scan and cut.  I added the stitched oval border to the top and bottom of the card.  I used the pierced scalloped circle and nested circle die to place the image on.  I also added two tags from the photo elements die set behind the circles.  I also added the presents border to the bottom of the card as well.  To finish the card off I added the celebrate you die sentiment.
