Coloring with alcohol markers

Hello!

Today’s project uses this cute fairy stamps from The Greeting Farm. I recently received this set from my haul and need to color them quickly to make it to The Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 373. I find the colors in the photo image perfect for these fairies to use, soft yet some darker reds underneath.

I used my promarker and copic markers to color the images. These are alcohol based markers that are great to blend. I have a limited markers of this type but they serve me well in coloring small images like these stamps.

The fairies have coordinating dies but I don’t have them so I fussy cut them including the mushrooms 🙂 need to do what I need to do to make them look good when I put dimensional tape to pop them up.

I used a card sketch inspiration from (CAS)E this sketch # 188. I used some fabric ribbons in the sides and also used my new wonky rectangular diecut to the white panel.  Love how the texture stitch add interest in a plain paper.

Booo!

I’m sharing today my take in this month’s challenge at Sarah Hurley365 blog. The theme: Halloween.

I only use one stamp set for this card. It’s Sarah‘s Malcolm Strange stamp set. I got the black & white pattern paper from A Few of my Favourite Things March kit. I used it specifically with that skull drawing in there 🙂

I added a shine in the pumpkins using glossy accents, same thing to the ghost eyes and kitty’s nose. I stacked them together  to show some form of balancing act while Malcolm is looking at them 🙂 I also used the spider web stamp for my card base background.

Until next time!

DIY Decorative Ref Magnet

Happy Saturday!

Sharing a quick project today that I know will be fun to create with kids.

I used to keep bottle caps, thinking that I can use them one day for a project. Now is the just the right time 🙂

I did these decorative ref magnets using bottle caps, the flat ones and the smaller size ones from water bottles, a great way to  recycle isn’t it?

I’m sharing the process of how I did these in Sarah Hurley 365 blog. Or you can click here.

Black, white and yellow

Joining in again this time at Fusion Challenge (black, white & yellow with the sketch and flowers).

The challenge is just so timely too as I recently got A Few of my Favorites Things scrapbooking kit  from Sarah Hurley that matches the color combo in the challenge.

Love those flower elements and the pattern papers on this pack, just so beautiful. I love putting the elements together to create a different card.  I also used the black satin ribbon and the flower sequins which are also included in the kit.

So, here goes my take..
