The 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 24



Is summer flying by for you? I started making this card this morning!
It seems that every day is just busy busy and before I know it, the sun is setting!

For Day 24 of Kathy Racoosin's 5th 30 Day Coloring Challenge!




I stamped these images from Lawn Fawn's Get Well Soon on to Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and coloured the images with my ZIG's. It seems each colouring challenge I focus on certain techniques. Challenges 1, 2 & 3 were working primarily with Copic colouring, challenge #4 was all about watercolour and #5 has been more about learning to work with my ZIG's. Have you been playing? If you have are you focussing on one technique or all of them?

CCC #208


It's time for a new cue card at CASology!

This week`s new cue is:


I finally broke open my Hero Arts June Monthly Kit to create a bon voyage card. I created my tag from kraft and stamped the elements in blue, red and brown--my favourite ink colours to stamp with on kraft. Then I popped up the centre panel for interest and tied some air mail twine on to the tag. I like giving cards to friends and family who are heading out on vacation. I think they are so excited for their trip that letting them know that you are excited for them to in such a nice gesture.



Hop on over to the CASology blog to see what the rest of the team has made to inspire you this week.
Can't wait to see what you make...

Happy Tuesday!
It's time for this week's new colour palette at the colourQ.

A beautiful colour palette this week but I decided to go bokeh with it. I used Lawn Fawn's Let Bokeh to create a simple line of overlapping dots, one in each of this week's colours. I finished it off by stamping the sentiment over the dots and added a thin strip of gold glitter cardstock to break the card up.

Essentials by Ellen July Pin-Sights Challenge





I decided to focus on the colour and I made a background using the single hydrangea bloom from Mondo Hydrangea and colouring them using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The blue's were perfect but my Carmine Red Zig, which seemed a really good shade, went very pink when it was activated with water. I was still happy with the look of the background.




For Day 21 of Kathy Racoosin's 5th 30 Day Coloring Challenge!



The 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 20

The card was done on Sunday, really, but I didn't have a chance to take a photo until the wee hours of Monday morning--lol!

For Day 20 of Kathy Racoosin's 5th 30 Day Coloring Challenge!




My MFT Zig Zag stitched circle was sponged with three shades of Distress Ink, splattered with water and then my palm tree was coloured with Copics.  A quick and easy thank you card!

Scrap-a-faire 2016: Share Your Masterpiece


Here we are with the 2016 Scar-a-faire event!
The first challenge is the Share Your Masterpiece Challenge. Select a project from our previous creations that we are most proud of. I selected this card that I made back in May here. I am most proud of this project because I really stepped out of my comfort zone to create this one. I am a clean and simple cardmaker but for this one I got messy with embossing and watercolouring with watercolour powders. So must fun to make.


Hoping to have a chance to play along with some of the other challenges today, but this is the first step.

Have a Beary Happy Birthday


For Kathy Racoosin's 5th 30 Day Coloring Challenge!



Over the past two days I coloured  a  bit of these images, first the bear and cake and then the balloons and hat. I put them together to make a cute birthday card with the addition of a wonky stitched frame, some glitter paper, some Wink of Stella and some foam tape for dimension!
