Playing With Colored Images & Entering Challenges

Card #1

A couple years ago, I didn’t have the space I needed to have an entire studio. So I just printed or stamped random images with the intention of one-day making cards for them. Well, it finally happened! I made the cards for these images I colored.    I even found a few challenges to inspire me so I played along. I can’t remember the Copic colors I used, but I will list the other things I used to make the cards for each challenge.  All of the images are Sheri Baldy – Besties  

For the first card, I used a stencil I made with my Cricut and blended 3 Distress Oxide Inks; Mustard Seed, Festive Berries & Peacock Feathers. I stamped an old sentiment from my stash with Versamark, then embossed it on black CS, then added a few misc sequins. She is so “Spring-y” I just love her!   The challenges that inspired me for this card are: Freshly Made Sketches – #FMS427

(I flipped it sideways)   Color & Sketch Challenges – #362

( I tried my best to match them with the Oxide Inks)   Crafty Sentiments – “Spring is Coming”

(Common’ Spring! Hurry up and get here lol)   Always Fun Challenges – #154 “Flowers”

Card #2

For this card, I had someone in mind so it was perfect when I was inspired to make a Birthday Card. I found some patterned paper in my scrap drawer that reminded me of Birthday Confetti. Then I blended the background on some white CS with Festive Berries, Mustard Seed & Dusty Concord Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered some water on the BG, and when it dried I spattered a white Pearl Ex & Gouache Mixture on it. Cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die and added a few misc sequins, and voila!  Done like dinner!   Shopping Our Stash – Birthday #416

Cuttlebug Mania – Birthday

Card #3

This one is probably my favorite! I’m always inspired by Festive Friday! So I set out to use 3 things from their list again this week. I used Hearts, Sequins, and for the glitter, I added some Stickles to her necklace and dress. I also used a Glitter Sakura Gel Pen. I masked a circle I cut out of some transfer tape on my Cricut, then blended the background with “Mowed Lawn” Distress Oxide Ink. I have heart stencil I made on my Cricut, so I dabbed on some white ink over the little hearts. When the ink was dry I colored over the white hearts with a Pink Sakura Glitter Gel Pen. Popped on a few misc sequins, added a sentiment, some strips of patterned paper and I was good to go in no time!
