The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge

You Got This

This months freebie is this very elegant image called My Fair Lady by Sheepski Designs and I wanted to keep it clean and simple. I decided to go with a basic colour scheme, white dress with just two contrasting colours and am happy with the way it turned out. The sentiment is from the set The New Pretty by The Ton. Added two strips of black CS then two strips of red PP from Kaiser 6 1/2 in pad called Looking Glass before adhering to a black card base. A touch of clear Wink of Stella on the red to finish off. 


Copics: 
Skin: E0000,000,01,R46.
Dress: N1,3,5,R24,46.
Hat: N5,7,9,R24,37,46.
Shadow: C0.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Freebie Digi Challenge

Special Friends

This months freebie is this adorable pair and a joy to colour. Have a friend that is going through a rough patch at the moment and thought she would appreciate it. I was going to use my copics when we met for a friendly craft get together but I forgot to pack them so a friend let me try her new Chameleon pencils and I am impressed with them. They blended really well and I didn't use a blending medium. They will be on my list when my prismas finally die.


I die cut friends on the card front then again on a scrap piece of white cardstock and layered then up. Cut the panel to 4 3/4 ins and added two strips of blue to each side then adhered it to a 5in card base. A nice and simple, nearly one layer card.

Born To Be Wild Birthday Card

Born to Be Wild

A friend asked if I could make a card for a special friend for her 50th birthday and if it could have a motorbike theme and this is the result. The stamp is from Whimsy stamps and is part of their KennyK Collection but is no longer available. KennyK has their own on-line store but you need to be quick as they are closing at the end of this month. I coloured the image with copics, then layered it onto PP from a Kaiser 61/2 x 61/2 pad called Attitude. Before adhering it to a grey card base I wrapped twine around with an attached bike charm, then added some gears and cogs. The sentiment is a digi from Just Ink Lined.


Copics:
Skin: E50,51,53,R20.
Lips: R22.
Hair: E07,08,09,11,18.
Eyes: BG000.
Tank Top: C1,3.
Hat,Top & Pants: B93,95,97,99.
Belt: $44,C3.
Boots: C1,5,7.
Bike: R59,89,RV69,C0,1,3,5,7,9.
Ground: W1,3,5.
Shadow: W0,1.

Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge

Happy Birthday

Quick post as I am just about out of time for this challenge. Coloured this cute image from Di's Digis with zig clean colour markers and kept it clean and simple. The sentiment is from a Winnie and Walter set called The Big, the bold and the Happy.



Gerda Steiner Monthly Digi Challenge

Girl With Flowers

It's been a month since I last posted as my poor old computer decided to throw a tantrum and I am going to have to buy a new one. My daughters partner managed to calm the beast but as it's 12 years old says it's time to upgrade. I actually enjoyed not having it after the first week as I read, crocheted and got over the withdrawal symptoms. Just in time now to add my challenge card. I broke out my Zig clean colour markers and had a play. Forgot to write down the one's I used but had fun and will try them again. Cut the image out with a My Favourite things rectangle die but mounted the frame for dimension over a scrap piece of PP. This was then adhered to a white card base. Added glossy accents to the flowers and headband then some black dots to her dress.

Gerda Steiner Monthly digi Challenge.

Friends

Nearly forgot to post this months card challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs. The freebie was this cute Pen Pal Bear and since I didn't get the last one in on time making sure this one makes it. I have no one to blame but myself as I leave everything to the last minute. I used copics to colour the bear and then stamped the sentiments from an old Hero Arts set called Thanks for being my Friend onto a scrap piece of white paper in black and red ink. It is no longer available which is a shame as it a lovely set and is a favourite of mine. I punched the top with a SU punch then adhered it to the card base over the PP scraps.  The bear was mounted in the corner with dimensional tape and I added some hearts that I die cut from a really old cuttlebug die. I think it was one of the first I bought when I got my cuttlebug but I can't part with them. Just being sentimental I think as it doesn't get much use. Added some glossy accents to the hearts and the bears nose to finish them off.


Copics: 
Bear: E53,55,57,W9.
Pencil: E40,42,44,R14,17,27.

ACTStamp Artists Card Challenge.

Happy Birthday Humans

I had so much fun playing with my distress oxide inks making galaxy backgrounds for my ATC this month I had to use some to make a card for the card challenge as well. I used the same stampsets from Gerda Steiner designs and I really love the way this birthday card turned out. Coloured the cute little aliens in bright colours with my copics after I masked the centre one then fussy cut them out.  I needed something to ground them so drew the planet freehand, coloured it and adhered it to the bottom of the galaxy panel.  Attached the birthday banner to the green alien with cord and then attached them both with mounting tape to the panel. This was then fixed to a black card base. The  sentiment and banner are also from the alien invasion set.



Copics:
Green Alien: YG05,07,09.
Pink Alien: RV02,04,06,V000,06,12.
Orange Alien: Y00,YR15,18.
Planet: E000,01,40,41 and brown multi liner.
