Another Saturday, another challeneg on SCS


For todays inspiration challenge over on SCS! And the sketch challenge for the week- I turned it sideways.
Today: we got to browse a wonderful site that had my style of art!!
I chose this piece to be inspired by: http://www.close2myart.com/shoppingcart/products/Tulip-Art-Print.html

For my card. I decided to break out my pigment powders. I stamped the flowers in red staz-on then painted away. The look was shiny but a bit flat, so I added depth with my prismas and then re- stamped the image again on top of the coloring. The flower image is an old old SU set : in full bloom. The writing is CHF scripty words. I used my oval nesties, and added pearl bling in the corner. The paper is a dcwv stack- I was using up scraps again.
I really like the combination of reds and dark pinks. Great challenge Anne!!!

SC 366 I am nervous today



This card is for today's Sketch challenge over on SCS. I love those challenges. Plus I am stuck at home waiting to find out if I got a job. I am trying to keep my brain super busy so I can quit analyzing what I said and should have said yesterday on my job interview.
On to the deets:
I used a mat stack from DCWV: Garden party I just randomly tore out the first 3 patterns and figured I would go from there. I brike out my new lifestyle nestie type circles cutters. I embossed the long panel with a sizzix A2. I punched out the flowers at the bottom and added the pearls. And the image is Inkadinkadoo, colored with the BG family of copics.

Overall it is a busy layout. But I think I like it. It would be a great birthday card.

Another IC 317 card, I am on a roll...

Another Card for Inspiration Challenge. I chose this cute image of the skunk
http://www.etsy.com/listing/74235148/skylar-skunk-in-the-rain-embroidered
But I didn't have a skunk image, I had a bear.


They say you spend the next year doing what you do on New years. So I am hopeful it will be stamping



Image is Hero Arts, colored with copics and paper is all scraps from that calendar pack from 2007. I didn't make my New Years resolution last year to use it up. I still have oh about 300 pages left.... ack.....
Cut with Nesties, and finished with a bow.


Happy New YEAR Alice!!!!


Happy New Year!
Another Saturday, another Inspiration challenge over on SCS. And did I mention it is Christmas break so I have time to stamp!!! YAY... I know like most of us I am so not ready for next week's return to school and busy organized chaos.

For Christmas I got new supplies, thanks Santa! I will post pics as soon as my large order of copics/ marker crack comes in.
Now for the deets: Image colored in copics. I masked the BG of clocks stamped in silver and embossed with clear ep. The clock in the image was rimmed in silver and embossed with clear ep=- you really can't see that part. I used my new clock A2 embosser on silver paper, and highlighted all with navy scraps. I put some navy bling on the corners, and wrapped some black su twine and colored and embossed the tag. The inside is blank, I may use this is a bday card.
I was inspired by this piece: http://www.etsy.com/listing/77073752/tick-tock-steampunk-embroidered-flour
This will also be posted on my SCS gallery.
I hope everyone has a great 2012!

What can I say, this website has a whole section devoted to Sunflowers! Made my very sick Christmas eve a bit happier!!!
http://www.urbanloftart.com/zulauf-105359/sunflower-art-print.htm

Main image is After midnight, colored with copics Mounted on scraps and dimensionals. I used Dark orange bling and DP came from the 2006 scrapbook calendar I swore I would use up this year. I cut up a piece to make the circus type tent.
Sunflowers always make me smile.
