Fly Away...

Hi all!  Ready for this weeks Through The Craftroom Door DT project?  No...oh well I'm going to show you anyway!  :)  This week our sponsor is A Day For Daisies.  As usual I couldn't just leave the image alone.  I had gotten an alphabet set as a freebie a while back and I really liked the fairies on the letter Z so I enlarged and cropped them.  I only used one of them on this project.  I really like this alphabet it has some great images and is very pretty!

The sentiment is by Create With TLC and was a freebie as well.

I wish I could have kept her little antennas.  I colored with Copics, used a 
Uniball gold pen to add the dots.  I bought a new set of Twinkling H2O's at 
a sale for $3...score!  I've never used them and I think I definitely applied
a coat to the wings that was too thick.  Ahh a learning experience.

I curved her wings a little. 
 I colored the back of the digi black.

I spoke with Tammy, A Day For Daisies owner, because I couldn't find the alphabet on the website to provide a link for to follow but it is not currently available.  That could change you never know so you should check often.  She has many wonderful images to purchase as well.  I also asked if it was ok to crop the fairy away from the letter and she told me that she likes to see how people use the images in different ways.  I love when an owner is so accommodating and open to the creative process  :)  Enough babble from me!  LOL!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Beaded pen

Hi everyone a quick post with my project for this weeks challenge at 613 Avenue Create!  Our optional twist this week is to make a card or gift for a friends since August 3rd is National Friendship Day.  Our sponsor this week is Kenny K and I've used the image Troublemaker which is just so appropriate and she's eating ice cream!  Couldn't be a more appropriate image!  LOL!  Ahh the good 'ol days of getting into mischief with my BFF Kim!  And Kim's favorite color is pink  :)

The skin color was so difficult to color!  Even after 
spraying the image (before shrinking) with a sealant
the Copics would still make the ink run.  I tried chalks but 
couldn't get a good color...ugh.  So this is a combination of 
chalks and Prismacolor pencils.  Then I cut the image out,
 punched a hole and shrunk it with my heat gun.  I held
the hole with my pin tool  ;)  I always feel like such a little kid 
when I work with this stuff!  I have such fond memories of 
childhood playing with it.

Ok enough pictures! LOL!

Watercolor flowers

It's time for another Through The Craftroom Door challenge!  
This week we are sponsored by

Here is my DT card

I water colored two pieces of paper (blue/purples and green) then printed the digi.  I "fussy cut" the flowers and leaves out and glued the pieces on top of an image printed on white CS.  Just like a puzzle!  LOL!  The plum paper is from DCWV Shimmer Stack, the white with glitter design CS was a scrap I bought from a stamp store.  I used the Sizzix scalloped die and the Dainty Bow die by MFT.

The centers of the flowers are micro beads by Martha Stuart.  I put some Glossy Accents then poured the beads over it.  I did three layers this way so it is raised up.  I wrapped some cloth floral wire around the end of my pin tool and tucked them under the flowers secured with a little Glossy Accents (I love that stuff!!).  The crystals are Jolee's Hotfix Crystals.

I really like how this came out.  Let me tell you it's not easy fussy cutting water color paper!  LOL!  I hope you can stop by and see what my talented DT members have created or maybe you could join us at TTCRD for our Anything Goes Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
