Found this image online and had to color it up. This is actually the color of these flowers. They are called Celosia and they are beautiful fuzzy flowers. I colored this up a few weeks back and since have lost my sticky note with all the colors I used. If I find it I will add it back in. Just thought i would get a post out to all of my peeps for inspiration.
I totally "crack" myself up! I had to do it you know. Last week I did a very ummmm, sexy card. Well I covered up all the parts :) This week I exposed all the parts. Here is what I created for Dustin Pike inspiration for his Animals Rule Challenge. I used all the same stuff as I had used in my last "sexy" card to kind of mimic it. This was fun. Be sure and join in on the fun over on Dustin's Blog HERE. If you want to see the other card and details you can go HERE. Thank you all for your kind comments over the years. I read them all and really appreciate them. It keeps me coloring!
This week Stampendous and Mayarts have joined together to share some wonderful greatness. The design teams from both companies has some fabulous stuff to show as well as goodies to give away. Be sure and go to Stampendous and MayArts to checkout whats going on. I have created this card using one of Stampendous' soon to be released Vintage Crowns Perfectly Clear Stamps set, I added some Mayarts Turquoise Wired ribbon, a few peacock feather and old trinkets I have been saving.
I used the embossing powder to distress the edges of the cream paper after random stamping the background. I wanted to stay constant with the look of it so I embossed the crown to match, cut it out and added the Dot Sparklers to make it pop. I Distressed the blue background with some coffee grounds and water so it wasn't so bright as i wanted the image to stand out more then the background. Adding a bit of old junk added the rustic look I was looking for. And who can resist adding a couple of pretty small peacock feathers?
Ummmmm...so I had to post this, but as you can see I kinda made it a bit more modest. Hopefully I do not offend anyone...If I do, sorry :) Thought this would make a great hubby Birthday card (and NO this is NOT me). I found this image on DeviantArt and had to color her up.
I was up to the challenge this week, and figured out how to squeeze it in my busy schedule. This week at Make It Colourful the challenge was to color something with reflection in water. This is what I colored. I used an image by Talkabout Images for this one and have been waiting for just the right time to color it. I colored the background paper and created my own clouds to make the image continue onto the background.
Want to scream for some ice cream? Beccy has a delicious ice cream cone on her blog HERE. I love her artwork because it screams to be colored with Copics. She also graciously gives them to you for free. So go grab your cone and lets get started! I have chose to color it with limited colors because not everyone has tons of Copics available to them. Pick your favorite 4 blending colors and lets color. I chose E50 E31 E35 E57. Follow the little step by step and get it colored. Practice makes perfect!
This is Trudy one of Mo's adorable images. I colored her up (she is 7" tall) and colored a few dresses too. She is placed on a card but popped up so her dresses still can be removed and changed out. I had a blast coloring something for ME (well its a gift). I am posting it on Mo's facebook for a contest. I will update the post in the morning with all the colors I used (they are all over my desk right now and I am writing from the comforts of my pillow).
