Brown Sugar Challenge #165 – Use a Doily!

For my card today, I used  Milk Coffee’s digital image called, “Halloween Tiffany as Sexy Cat Girl.”  I colored this feisty kitty with Copic Markers and used DCWV “Spooky Time Stack for papers.  For my doily, I sprayed it with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray in “Open Arms Amethyst” and stamped the “meow” with Lawn Fawn’s Milo alphabet.

Sketch Saturday Challenge #374

Happy Saturday!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Milk Coffee, who is offering 5 digital images as a prize to our random winner.  Thanks Milk Coffee!  You have until Friday, August 21st for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:


For my card I chose the Milk Coffee’s digital image, “Boy Plays with His Paper Airplane”, which I colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is cut from a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die, but shortened to accommodate my sentiment. I love doing this with dies to make them more versatile.  The clouds are created using Pan Pastels and a cloud stencil.  I finished off with wood veneer stars.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Pastel Colors

Happy Saturday!  That means it’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge and we are celebrating Pastel Colors!  You have until Friday, April 3rd to enter your pastel card.  Again, we have great sponsors who are giving away super prizes.

1) Milk Coffee – offering 3 digital images of winners choice.

2) All Dressed Up – offering 2 digital images of winners choice.

3) The Cutting Cafe– offering 3 digital images or cut files of winners choice.

My first card uses All Dressed Up’s “I Love My Puppy” digital image which I colored with Copic Markers.  I then distressed the edges with primsacolor pencils and a paper stump.  The paper pack is Simple Stories “Vintage Bliss” which I cut out using My Favorite Things dies.  I fussy cut the butterflies and die cut Papertrey Inks’ “Hello” die from the same paper pack.  The image is cut from a Spellbinders label die and I colored the background with spun sugar distress ink.  I finished off the butterflies with gems.

The next card features Milk Coffee’s  “Charlotte with Frilly Umbrella”.  She was colored with Copic Markers then fussy cut.  I used the same Simple Stories “Vintage Bliss” paper pack as my first card.  The flag dies are My Favorite Things as is the button die.  The sentiment is Papers Smooches.
