Outlaws Challenge - October 19th - Rick St Dennis

I just love this image by Rick St Dennis called Mystique.  

The Copic Markers that I used for this image are;
Skin - E01, E11, E13

Hair - E34, E47, E49
Lips - R02, E05, E27
Eyes - B12, B24, B28 110
Hat/Dress - BV02, BV04,BV08
Veil - BG02, BG45, BG49

    Xmas Red Stickles
Buckle - Copper Stickles 
Bat Eyes - Lime Green Stickles 
Page Edges - Black Chalk. 

I thought this patterned paper that I had went smashing with it.  I was lucky to have two sheets of the same paper.  I love to have some dimension to my card so I cut out all the bats and Sentiment and added them to the card in a raised effect.  Amazing what some pop up Dots can do to the card for dimension!

I also love to have the inside of my card completed as well, so I had that extra paper and used the last Bat as the high light in the top right corner.

Fireflies bring me back to when I was a little girl!  I remember camping and catching fire flies and placing them into a clear jar so that they lit up our table while we played cards under Patio Lanterns (now I am breaking out in the song Patio Lanterns by Kim Mitchell LOL).  Anyhow this image from Scribble Designs is fantastic!  Was so easy to colour and soon as I saw the image I knew instinctively how to create my project.

I also used the extra FireFlies that are freebies and placed them into different sizes to give the appearance they were flying around, some close some far away.

The Copic's that I used to complete this project are;

Y11, YG11,03
B0000, BG0000

Additional product that I used to complete my project are;

Star dust stickles
Black and white twine
Paper From One Crazy Stamper called Campout

Outlawz - Oct 12 - Melonheadz

So, not sure why the picture looks more beige when it clearly is white LOL.  

When I was first asked to participate with the designer Melonheadz, I saw the calendars and thought I GOTTA HAVE THAT!  You every have a GOTTA HAVE THAT item?  This was definitely it for me! Yes I know we all have the smart phones!  But what happens when the smart phones are not enough? You need the at a glance calendar!  This was it for me.  It married the two things I like the most...Crafts and being anal about being organized!  

I used the following Copic Markers to colour my November 2015 calendar!

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Hair - E49, E47, E37
Crown/Shoes - C7, C5, C3
Hand - YR09, YR07, YR04

Outlawz-Monday Challenge - October 5th - DeeDees

Hi Everyone,

As I start to slow down after a very busy year, I am blessed to have an image from DeeDee's that I can send to my daughter who is in her first year at University!  We spent the last 4 weekends travelling with her and her softball team from school and I think it would be awesome for her to get some mail of her own don't you think?  The image is the fox from the Digi's Pumpkin Pals.  Fantastic deals at DeeDee's...You get 4 coloured images, 4 outlined images, 4 white filled layering images (which is what I used), 3 sentiments - an essential for the challenge LOL and 3 printable 6x6 digital papers (which I used) all for $3.00 USFunds....FANTASTIC DEAL I tell ya!

Soon as I saw this image I knew I had to make it three dimensional so that the pumpkin looked like it was rounded and that the paws looked like they were coming out of the pumpkin.  I hope the image below shows this effectively.  What cant you do with foam tape?? LOL

I coloured my image as follows;

Fox - W9, W7, W5, W3, W1
Foxes Ears/Nose - RV10, RV21, RV13
Fox Wiskers - Star Dust Stickles
Pumpkin - YR15, YR68, RY27
Pumpkin Stem - E59, E57, E53, E43
Sky - Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass
Sentiment - Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye

The paper was provided as well from DeeDee's package and printed off very nicely!  I had some matching ribbon that I thought went well for some extra dimension and interest in my card.

Lately I have been dressing the inside of my cards, So to I popped the inside of the card with the matching paper.  I saved you all from the sappy note that I will write to my only child who I am missing terribly LOL.
