Challenge UP!! To the Moon and Back

Make It Crafty has the latest challenge for you....This one is a doozy!  The challenge is two toned coloring with abstract background.  I was a bit hesitant and struggled a bit to get a start on it, but surprisingly enough as soon as I started it all came together.  I hope you will join in on the 
S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G yourself outside of the comfort zone to encourage your coloring growth.

This image is from Make It Crafty.

Copics Used:
Y11 Y19 YR16 YR18
BG0000 BG10 B01 B02 B04 B06

I airbrushed the background and then dropped alcohol onto it to create the background effect.

You can join in on the challenge and even win some images at the Make It Crafty Challenge Blog.  See you there!

Mums the Word - CC Designs New Release

I had fun adding a little Creative Color Placement on this new CC Designs stamped image.  I actually used two images to complete this card.   The little Red Wagon was the perfect thing to hold all the fussy cut flowers.  I love how this card feels very crisp despite the busy paper...must be fall somewhere.  I also cut out Autumns Mum and placed her over the wagon for more dimension.  These images will be available in a few days...so be on alert!!!!

Color of the Day 202

***Please note that I color using the lightest color first, dark, medium and back to light.  I only slightly blend the edge of the last color placed.  Then add the shadow. 

If you miss one of the combo's you can find it on the side of the blog labeled "Color of The Day".  Please realize that your computer screen and printer can change the way you see it or how the colors print, but if you try it yourself you will get some fun combos...promise!

Also, feel free to pin them.  I ask that you do not sell them printed out, do not place them on your personal blog but rather link to mine.  These are for personal use only.   Leave me some love if you want to see more!

Thank you to all my followers and fans from all over the world.
