Daffodils at the Outlawz Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday! Time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!

Our sponsor for August is Digistamp4Joy. Our August winner will get to choose four images from theDigistamps4Joy store.

Here is this week's sketch

And here is my card using Daffodil by our sponsor Digistamps4Joy. I merged three Daffodils together and colored with Copic markers.

My order of Oxide inks came this week so I used the Twisted Citron one to make a background around the daffodils. I felt like the daffodils were a little lost, so I used a brush marker to make a contrast around the flowers. Originally, my daffodils were all yellow, but they lacked pizzazz, so I made the centers orange. I added a sentiment and some black rhinestones to the corners and did some cardstock layering and I was done. The overall card size is 6 x 6 inches.

Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!

Thanks for dropping in! I love having visitors!

Outlawz Color Challenge 8-15-17

I'm guest designing in August at the Outlawz Colour Challenge. Hope you will drop by there and see what lovely cards the Colour team has made!

The sponsor this month is Mari Digis.

Here is the inspiration photo and the Twist is Inspiration.

My image is by the sponsor Mari Digis.  I used the colors from the inspiration photo and friendship for my inspiration. I colored the image with Copic markers. The frame is by Spellbinders, Timeless Rectangles. 
The stamped sentiment is by Fiskars. The pink flowers under the sentiment are made of resin and are actually sold for a fairy garden, but when I got them, I was thinking they were better suited to put on a card. 

I hope you will stop by the Outlawz Colour Challenge!

And thanks so much for dropping by my blog! I appreciate it!

Favorite treat --Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge

It's Friday!  We have a new challenge  at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 

The themes this week are Straw Hat, Man's Profession, Favorite Treat, and Christmas.  

For my theme, I picked Favorite Treat and made a friendship card.

I used the Friends Cookies digi image by our sponsor, Bugaboo. I used my Copic markers to color the cute image. The Sweet background layer is also by Bugaboo and one of the digi papers from the Chocolate set. I don't see the digi paper set or the Friendship image in the store right now, but Jodie is busy adding in older images into the new web store.  The flower is from a set of fabric flowers in my stash.
The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!

Bugaboo is always our sponsor for the Festive Friday's Challenge and is giving a great prize of 5 digital images to our lucky August winner! Please visit Bugaboo as they are so generous with their prizes and we simply couldn't have challenges without them!

Thanks for coming by!  Have a fantastic weekend!
