Outlawz Progressive Challenge

Voodoo King

The image this month is from SLS Lines and it is different .This image is right out of my comfort zone but I must admit it was fun to do something I would never have chosen to do. Maybe I should try something like this again. The colours used are what I pictured in my head and are probably no resemblance to anything connected to a voodoo king. I just let my imagination run wild and love the look. Used my copics to colour the king and a stencil from MFT on the background. The background paper used is an old piece of coredinations core colour in a pale mauve that seemed to suit the image. The sentiment is computer generated.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Progressive Challenge

Seasons Greetings

This month we have the most adorable little bear to play with for this months Challenge and as I still need some Christmas cards he became my Christmas bear. Added a Chrissy hat,  and merry Christmas to the mug and he was ready to colour. As usual I went with copics and kept the card fairly clean and simple. The PP is from Create a Smile Snow dance kit and the sentiment is a die from Kaiser. Added glossy accents to the mug, some wink of stella to the hat, a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and another Christmas card done.

Deedee's Digi of the Month Challenge

Starry Starry Night

This month we are using the lovely Polar Peace set from Deedee's Digis  for this months challenge. You can check out the challenge here.There are lots of lovely sentiments and the images are so cute. I printed of two images as I wanted to mask it and use distress inks for the background. For the stars I used liquid masking fluid and I'm happy with the result. Added some water droplets and dots with a white gel pen for snow and I had my starry starry sky. Used my copics to colour the bear and seal, added glossy accents to the scarf, large star and the noses and some Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle. The sentiment was computer generated.

60th Happy Birthday Card

Check out my Package

Made this card a couple of weeks ago but had to wait until her birthday to post it. I didn't want to spoil the surprise and she loved it. It was her 60th and as she loved the card I made for her Hubby for his 60th had to do a similar one for her. She is a redhead and I coloured a red haired girl jumping out of a cake for his card. The image I used for her card is called Special Delivery from Redonkadoodles and I cased the sentiment from a card I saw on Pinterest by Collette. Love these cheeky stamps and they are so much fun to colour. I kept the background fairly plain as the image needs to stand out. The PP is from a 6 x 6 pad called Stella and Rose from My Minds Eye. The sentiments were computer generated then placed on the card with the image using mounting tape to give them some dimension.


Skin: E00,02,11,R02,05.
Hair: E40,47,49.
Present & Arrow: BG11,23.
Ribbon: R20,22,24.
Background: BG0000.

I love the images from Redonkadoodles and they have a lovely mixture. They are not all cheeky but I think everyone needs some ckeeky ever now and again.

Happy Birthday Dragon Card

The Birthday Dragon

I have a friend that loves everything connected with dragons and the colour purple and this is the result. The image is a digi from Doodle Dragon Studios but not sure if it is still available. I have had this set for ages and it is such a cute image but there are so many more coming all the time. If you like dragons and monster this site is worth a visit. On my last post I said I didn't colour at all but I made up for it this time. 

I coloured the image in copics and love the result. He is such a happy dragon and a joy to colour. I kept the card simple as the image is the star of the show and I thought anything extra would be a distraction. I did use glossy accents on the balloon and candle flame and black enamel accents on the eyes but it didn't show up on the photo..

Copics used:

Dragon: YG06,09,17,Y06,17,YR18.

Get Well Wishes

Glad your on the Mend

This card is for a friend that has just had his knee operated on and wont be able to ride his motorbike for a while. He also loves his golf so it was a toss-up what I would put on the card. The bike won and I thought it was time to use these great images I have had for a while and there was no stamping and colouring involved. I cant remember the last time I haven't had some sort of colour on a card. 

The bike is a 3D decoupage though it doesn't show on the photo and the background paper is from an old My Mind's Eye 6x6 Designer Paper Pad called On the Bright Side. Computer generated his nickname and the sentiment, mounted it on a black card base and voila, a quick and easy card.

Deedee's Digis October Challenge

Harvest Time

Mr scarecrow is part of the wonderful images sent to us for this months challenge at Deedee's Digis. There were plenty to choose from but Mr scarecrow on his own won out. I copied him hanging on the signpost and the pumpkins to make this scene. They were coloured with copics then fussy cut and mounted onto the watercolour background. I used distress ink pads, blueprint sketch and mowed lawn that I stamped onto a piece of acetate, spritzed with water and then dipped my water paper into it. Love this easy way to do a simple background and it is different every time. Adhered it onto a ivory card base with a foam backing to keep it flat as it curled slightly.
