The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge-Day 17

Hi,
Hope your weekend is going well!  This is the what I colored today:


This is  the Beautiful Flowers stamp from Simon Says Stamp.  This came in the card kit for June, and I can't put it down! Seriously I have used it sooo many times already and have loved everything made from it. It is a gorgeous stamp and you can color this with so many mediums.  Today I stamped with Versafine ink and then used SSS Clear embossing powder over the ink, and heat embossed.  I colored with Distress Oxide inks.  I also added some splatters, which for once turned out pretty well, usually  they look weird to me.  lol  After I stamped the sentiment, I decided I wanted to color the HAPPY, and of course I had already cleaned up my paints. :(   So I used Zig markers to fill in the letters in complimentary colors.

Thanks for stopping by....

The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge Day 14

For today's coloring I used Stacey Yakula stamps from Purple Onion Design.  These are the cutest stamps, evah!! lol  I just love them and Purple Onion has a new release, and I can't wait to get my hands on some new stamps.

This is what I colored today:


I colored with Copics, and accented a bit with Prismacolor pencils.  The sky is Distress Inks, using a stencil from Hero Arts.  I love this stencil, sooo easy to use, and I always get good results.

The Daily Marker 30 Coloring Challenge Day 2

Hi,
I wanted to try and do some of the The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. #thedailymarker30day.  I would like to participate as much as I can, because I do love to color. :)  Here is what I made:


I used the stamp set Beautiful Flowers from this months SSS Card Kit.  It is a gorgeous stamp set, with not only this beautiful flower stamp but a lot of great sentiments.  I also used the Leafy Frame Stencil from a new SSS release for the border.  The flowers are colored with Zig Real Brush Markers, I love these markers and they always color beautifully. 

See you soon......

Freshly Made Sketches #335

Hi...This is an entry  for Freshly Made Sketches #335.


The stamp and die set for the flowers and jar are from Lil' Inkers Design.  So many possibilities with this stamp set, love it!  I colored the jar with copics and stamped all the flowers and leaves with ink.  I die cut them and placed  over the oval on the front of the card.  The 'thanks' is from Paper Smooches and is cut twice; once from white cardstock and once from green and I offset them and then glued to the card front.  

This is the sketch:

CASE this Sketch #269

Back with an entry into this week's CASE this Sketch #269.




This stamp set is from this month's Simon Says Stamp card kit. I am not much of a butterfly person (!!) on my cards, but I did like this stamp set.  I embossed the butterflies with white embossing powder, masked them and then stamped and embossed the leaves.  I painted them with Zig markers, my new favorite way to watercolor!  I have had them for awhile and did use them, but not much; lately though I have used them quite a bit.  I watercolored the background with Distress ink.  I brushed on water, then watered down the ink and applied it to the background.  The sentiment from Avery Elle, is stamped with Versafine black ink and them embossed with black embossing powder.  I used some confetti sequins to accent.

CASE this Sketch #268

I decided to enter the CASE this Sketch #268 challenge this week.  Loved the sketch and this is what I came up with.


I used Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and a Tim Holtz stencil.  I tinted some of the paste with Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick and used it for the one flower in the middle.   A Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker  was used for the sentiment, mounted on white and attached with foam adhesive.  I really do like the way it came out.

This is the sketch:
