Christmas Filled with Love

Hi Everyone, Here is my latest card for the  Besties International Challenge  using My Besties Img690 which I colored with copics. I have trimmed the image down then mounted it onto Tempting Turquoise card stock. I have also used papers from the My Besties shop as well from two different collections, Magical Unicorn and Snowman and Pinky Pop Stardust Unicorn. which I cut into half squares and mounted onto Pink Pirouette card stock. I have added some glitter snowflakes and bubbles  using the memory box die, have made a bow from 5/8 satin ribbon and used a rhinestone brad in the center. I made some poinsettia flowers using the dies and mold from Heartfelt Creations and some silver lined seed beads for the centers.

Besties Halloween

Hi Everyone, today I am here to share my new card for our Halloween Challenge over at My Besties International Challenge, we hope you will come over and join us. Our Challenge is always anything goes and also you can use any image, it doesn't have to be a Besties, even though they are adorable.

My Card is using several products you can find at the My Besties Shop, First of all I am using img022 from the You Drive me Batty collection which I have colored using Copic Markers.
The second element I am using is the beautiful chipboard frame, which I colored with Polychromo Pencils then sealed it with clear nail polish.
My final element from the store is the wonderful paper that you can print at home and no it doesn't cost a lot to do so. It's called Fall Batty Paper Pack, which I used 2 of the 12 sheets available. I printed my sentiment on one and the other is my background, I hope you like my card and come join us in the challenge.

Steampunk Bestie

Hi Everyone, here to share my lastest make for the International Besties challenge which is the theme of steampunk. Instead of making a card I actually made a tag instead and I am quite happy with how it came out.  I used image called Steampunk Bestie  I colored her with copics and fussy cut her out
I then got the tag and used Distress inks over it and then stamped a few elements on top
I then went to work on doing my embellishments, the cogs, and screws at the bottom other than the small one with 3 holes are all die cuts, I used metal paper for the silver ones then distressed them with ink a bit so they weren't so bright, then I got another paper and mixed some orange, red, and green together on the page until I got the desired color kind of a copper and die cut out the clock and the other cogs and screws, decided on the placement glued them down then stamped my greeting an old one from Stampin up that is retired, and then added the hot air balloon which I got from De Serres store in a steampunk charm set. Hope you like my project.

Besties Canvas

Hi Everyone, here to share a canvas project I have made. I started with the image which I have colored in Copic markers
Skin: E04,11,21,00,000 R22,20
Hair YR 27,24, Y21
Boots and Owl grey areas: C7,5,3,1
Jacket and Hat purple grey: BV29,25,23
Feathers, bow hearts, R59,56, RV34,R81
Leaves YG67, 25,
Owl eyes YR23,21
Glass of Glasses B01,000

After coloring her up I fussy cut her out and decided to make a canvas project with her
I started off with a 9 by 7 inch white canvas board I got from the dollar store
I added some texture to it by stenciling all over using modeling paste and letting it set to dry. 
I then decided to use my spray inks to color the canvas, I used a lilac, aqua and wanted some green but only had a light green so I made my own by using an ink refill and some alcohol in a spritzer
works wonders. so did the green this is how the canvas background turned out. 

I then cut out a frame for my image out of watercolor paper, I added some ground espresso distress ink to it, and then watered it down for the color to go all over, then did it again to get full coverage. 
I decided It didn't look old or like metal so I added some taupe frantage to it and then some gold embossing powder in spots and then heat set and then went over it a bit with the ground espresso, this is the frame and how it turned out

I placed it on the canvas
and then added some other stuff to the canvas to see how it would look 
I was liking the layout but the chain was silver and so was a couple of the gears, so I used some gold embossing powder on them and heat set to turn them gold
I then let it set a while as gold elements on the canvas and decided I wanted a bit more of the pink so I took everything off the canvas again and added some pink spray to it, just a touch in the center area
I then put all back on the canvas and was pleased with the effect with the exception of the white areas around the image, so I took my Cool Grey 1 marker and went over those areas and added some more color to the glass of the glasses  as well. I then used some Gel medium to attach all to the canvas 
This is the final result of the canvas

Thanks for stopping by
