Dance in the Rain

I'm sneaking in a make with the other team today for the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create!  This week's optional twist is Shabby Chic.  And I was able to work with one of our amazing sponsors: My Whimsical Little World and the adorable image "Splish, Splash". 

Because our twist this week was shabby chic, which tends to softer more muted tones, I chose to color my image in pencils rather than Copics.  I did stray into some of the primary colors with her boot, umbrella, and skirt, but most of the image is softer. 


I used my Distress Paint Dauber in Picket Fence on my background paper.  It's not super visible, but I loved the clouds and raindrops on the paper so I used the paint dauber to tone down the color and soften the pattern a bit.    Once the card was put together, I went in with my Glossy Accents and left raindrops on the flowers and papers, as well as coating the puddle so that it had a nice shiny surface. 



Supplies:
"Splish, Splash" digistamp from MWLW
Bella Blvd Simply Spring "Dancing in the Rain" paper
eclectic mix of colored pencils
Prima Chalk ink in Tin Can
Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Picket Fence
5" paper doily
Laces from my stash
Silhouette cut #19626 & #83423
Pearl trim from Hobby Lobby
Half pearl stickers by Mark Richards
Iamroses Daisy
Michael's roses
Glossy Accents

To the Moon and Back

It is time for another challenge over at 613 Avenue Create - and this week the optional twist to our Anything Goes Challenge is to include the Moon and Stars in your creation.

I'm working with one of our generous sponsors - Bugaboo Stamps today.  The image I have colored is called "Fairy Kid Sitter"




My card is super simple.  I colored my image and cut her out.  I cut a circle shape into some gold pearlized paper, then cut a smaller circle shape our of one side of that to create the moon.  I added some shadows and details with my Copics.  I used a small star punch from Studio G to cut some gold stars.  I layered all of this on my background paper, which was inked with Prima chalk ink in Farmer Jeans.


For my sentiment, I broke out my Heidi Swapp Foil.  This was one of my first times using it, so it was an adventure.  I printed "love you to the moon and back" on my computer and foiled it, before cutting it into a small double fishtail banner, and inking it with the same Prima ink.

Please come join us at 613 Avenue Create this week, and be sure to check our the other gorgeous creations by my teammates.

Thanks for stopping by!

Quick Pocket Letter Share & Summer Break


Just quickly stopping in to share this pocket letter I created for a friend's Youtube challenge.  I used First Edition Paper Flowers paper pack and Craftsmith Cardstock shapes to create the letter.

I will be taking a bit of a "summer break" for the rest of this month.   I will still be popping in here and there with DT projects, but will be enjoying some fun summer weather and a bit of time to renew my creativity.

Have a fabulous day!
