Outlawz Progressive Monthly Challenge

Swimming by to say Hi

Hopefully next month I will not be rushing but I say that most months so who knows. Managed to get another monthly challenge done and this one was so much fun. I love zentangles and I hope Jean
 doesn't mind that I added some more tangles to the image. Coloured it with my Zig markers, mounted it to a piece of blue card then unto a pale blue card base. The sentiment was computer generated. 


Gerda Steiner Monthly Challenge

Calories don't Count

I cant believe it's been a month since I last posted on my blog. Life just seems to get in the way of crafting at the moment but I really don't mind as my youngest is moving back to the ACT after being away for 10 years. It's not like we didn't see her as it was only 4 hrs away but now it will be 30 mts. Spent most of the month helping her sell the house and packing etc. so this my first card this month and just in time for the challenge. Kept it simple and used one of my favourite sentiments (wish it was true) for a quick card. Coloured the image with my Zig markers, mounted it on an old off-cut of blue Colour-core Card stock then onto an off white card base.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Digi Challenge

Strawberry Mouse

I never get tired of colouring these fabulous images from Gerda Steiner Designs and this one is so cute. I wanted the image to shine so I cut it out with a zig zag stitched die from MFT, mounted it to white card then adhered it to red PP from Rosie's Studio basics pad then added 
 some green ribbon to contrast the paper. The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry.


Copics:
Mouse: W00.0.1.3.5.R20.
Strawberries: Y17,R02,08,59,YG17,G29.
 Shadows: E70,B0000.




The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge

Paws-itively Fabulous

Have not been doing to much craft lately but have managed to do my monthly challenges. This card is for the progressive outlaws challenge and this month the image is from Anne Fenton and I had fun colouring this adorable dog. I coloured it with copics and used a MFT pierced oval die to cut it out  then used mounting tape to adhere it onto PP from the Kaiser 61/2 in pad called Hello Today. This was then adhered to blue card, twine added and then onto a cream card base. The sentiment is an old digi one but I don't know who from. 


Copics:
Dog: E0000,000,11,13,18,27 & Sepia Copic Multiliner.
Ball: N1,3.
Sky: BG0000,000.
Grass: E70, YG05, 25, 63& Sepia Copic Multiliner.

The Outlawz Freebie Progressive Challenge

You Got This

This months freebie is this very elegant image called My Fair Lady by Sheepski Designs and I wanted to keep it clean and simple. I decided to go with a basic colour scheme, white dress with just two contrasting colours and am happy with the way it turned out. The sentiment is from the set The New Pretty by The Ton. Added two strips of black CS then two strips of red PP from Kaiser 6 1/2 in pad called Looking Glass before adhering to a black card base. A touch of clear Wink of Stella on the red to finish off. 


Copics: 
Skin: E0000,000,01,R46.
Dress: N1,3,5,R24,46.
Hat: N5,7,9,R24,37,46.
Shadow: C0.

Gerda Steiner Monthly Freebie Digi Challenge

Special Friends

This months freebie is this adorable pair and a joy to colour. Have a friend that is going through a rough patch at the moment and thought she would appreciate it. I was going to use my copics when we met for a friendly craft get together but I forgot to pack them so a friend let me try her new Chameleon pencils and I am impressed with them. They blended really well and I didn't use a blending medium. They will be on my list when my prismas finally die.


I die cut friends on the card front then again on a scrap piece of white cardstock and layered then up. Cut the panel to 4 3/4 ins and added two strips of blue to each side then adhered it to a 5in card base. A nice and simple, nearly one layer card.

Born To Be Wild Birthday Card

Born to Be Wild

A friend asked if I could make a card for a special friend for her 50th birthday and if it could have a motorbike theme and this is the result. The stamp is from Whimsy stamps and is part of their KennyK Collection but is no longer available. KennyK has their own on-line store but you need to be quick as they are closing at the end of this month. I coloured the image with copics, then layered it onto PP from a Kaiser 61/2 x 61/2 pad called Attitude. Before adhering it to a grey card base I wrapped twine around with an attached bike charm, then added some gears and cogs. The sentiment is a digi from Just Ink Lined.

Skin: E50,51,53,R20.
Lips: R22.
Hair: E07,08,09,11,18.
Eyes: BG000.
