Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi there!  I' back, albeit late, with my DT post for the Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Normally, I would post tomorrow morning, but I've got a couple of special posts coming up tomorrow, so I am posting this tonight.  Our theme this week is "color inspiration".  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the color palette on your project.  You may use any coloring medium you'd like as long as you have a hand-colored image.

Here is the color inspiration, courtesy of Design Seeds:


Here is my card based on the colors:
 

My card base and mats are SU Pool Party and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Nutmeg" 6x6 pad. The fun images are from the Best Friends digi set from Vera Lane Studios.  I merged the two girls together and colored them with my Copics.  The sentiment is from the same set.  I printed it out and cut it up before placing it.  A few opaque gems finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:
 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the fabulous creations from my teammies, Dawn, Penny, Kathi and Laine!  We hope you will play along!  Our September challenges are sponsored by Vera Lane Studios and the winner will receive one of the digi sets you've seen us showcasing throughout the month.

Elphine House Australia Challenge #62

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday (Wednesday in Brisbane)!  Hope your week is going well so far.  I'm sorry to be missing again lately.  I've got a few things going on and I'm scrambling to get everything done right now.  I hope to be back on track soon.  Anyway, I'm here now with my DT post for the new Elphine House Australia Challenge.  The theme this month is "an apple a day".  We want to see one or more apples on your project.  That's it, other than you need to use an Elisabeth Bell image.  It can be from any company that sells her designs.

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are GKD Fresh Asparagus and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Spring Market Petite Papers pack.  The cute image is Shasha With Red and Golden Apples from Elphine House Australia.  I stamped it on MiC Blending card and colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A gingham bow and button finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Sketch Saturday #327

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I will be tidying my craft room today, so I probably won't get much else done.  It's the only way I'm going to be able to get back to work in there!  I am here now with my DT card for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are generously sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week.  They are offering a $25 GC to their fantastic online store.


Here is this week's fabulous sketch, created by Debra:
Here is my card:
 

I kept it CAS this week, a rare thing for me.  On my white base, I used some fun bee digi paper from Create With TLC. The adorable image is from the Happy Bee Day clear set from Tiddly Inks.  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  The sentiment is from the same set.  A stitched ribbon bow and a swirly yellow button finished my card.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I hope you've had a good week and you have fun plans for the upcoming weekend!  My first order of business this weekend is to clean up my craft room!  Right now, it looks like a cyclone hit in there!  It's certainly not conducive to creativity at the moment.  Before embarking on that onerous task, I am here to share my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is "hats", in honor of Make A Hat Day, which is on Monday. 

Here is my card:
 

My card base and mats are SU Bravo Burgundy and the patterned papers are from the Prima Melody 6x6 pad.  The cute image is Sunday Afternoon from Karleigh Sue Digis.  She was generously shared as a freebie during the Kit and Clowder 3,000 Member Party, but she is now available in the Karleigh Sue Digis Etsy shop.  I colored her up with my Copics in rich fall colors.  Some pretty lace, a triple-loop seam binding bow and a vintage tree charm finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:
 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the fantastic creations from the rest of the DT!  We have some exciting news, too!  We have a new member of our DT!  The lovely Laine Webb has just joined us, starting with this challenge.  Be sure to pop by and welcome her!    We hope you will play along with us!  The September Challenges are being sponsored by Vera Lane Studios, who are offering a mystery digi set to one lucky participant in this month's challenges.  I can tell you it is one of the digi set in the Vera Lane Studios Etsy shop, so check it out!
