Corrosive Challenge, Delicious Doodles, Steampunk 1 Comment »

It’s time for another Corrosive Challenge!  This fortnight we are sponsored by Delicious Doodles, and the prize will be 4 free digi’s, so you will definitely want to play along!  For my card, I chose Steampunk Mermaid.  I colored my mermaid with Copics.  For my metal bits I added some copper looking brads across the tops.  Then I added two gears  at the top, and a ships wheel to make it look like three gears, but also add an ocean feel. The bottom are  jumpers for jewelery that I just lined up and glued down.   I had a lot of fun putting her together.  Thanks for stopping by for a look!  Hope to see you for the challenge!


The Corrosive Challenge Blog – Go Green

Corrosive Challenge 1 Comment »

It’s time for another challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog.  Today the challenge is sponsored by The Stamping Chef and the theme is Go Green.  For this challenge we had three options.  1) use the photo color inspiration 2) create a St. Patrick’s Day project 3) use something recycled on your creation.  I decided to go with the color green and I used the image Rockabilly Boom.  I colored her with Copics then cut her out and layered her over my circle panel and stars.   I added some tacks I bought from a hardware store along the bottom, I just cut off the stems so I could glue them down flat.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you in the challenge!

Today’s Challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog is about All Work and no Play.  I’m sure we can all relate to that!  Our sponsor is Kenny KKKDBlinkie1

Kenny K has offered the winner of the challenge a prize of 3 digi stamps!

For my card, I used Naughty Nurse.   All work no playI colored her with Copics, then hand stitched the edges and the strips under my main panel.  I thought about using the sewing machine, but didn’t think I would be able to keep them centered on those little strips!

If you have never played  in one of our challenges before, what are you waiting for?  Head on over there now and join the fun!

I colored my image with Copics.  I then created “rips” in my paper and hand stitched then to match the theme of the image.  My “ribbon” is an old Halloween webbing door cover that I ripped up (it was 50c on the clearance rack, now that’s a deal!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall, Simply Betty Stamps, Uncategorized 1 Comment »

This is a card I created for the November Fan Page Challenge at Simply Betty Stamps.  Pilgrims and Indians.  This month I choose Pilgrim Corinne and the challenge was to simply incorporate fall colors.  I colored her with Copic Markers. The papers I used were DCWV and The Paper Studio, the ribbon and leaf was recycled from the wrapping from a gift I got from a friend.

Pilgrim Corinne
I hope everyone has safe and very Happy Thanksgiving!
