Have A Star Spangled Fourth Of July



Here I am, again, this time, with a fourth of July project.  My card uses the image, Super Spandex, from Slinky Tart, colored with markers. The image and banner are attached with foam mounting tape.  I love foam mounting tape because it helps add a nice touch of dimension to cards! My card layout uses the Sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I made this card for one of my best friends, for Fourth of July! I know my friend will love it! I used a Gold Glittery Star to embellish the card and set off the striped banner.

Firefly Fairy Goes Vintage



It's time for a new challenge at Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenges.  This fortnight, we want to see your Vintage creations. you have two weeks, as usual, to play along and link up your vintage creation.  You could be one of our DT favorites, or even possibly win a prize from one of these generous sponsors:
















Oh, and now, here are the details about my project for this challenge. I must admit, I've never been very good, in my opinion, of achieving the Vintage look.  So, while the image is gorgeous, I admit, I struggled a bit with this creation.  Hopefully. I've managed to achieve the Vintage look as the end result.  I made this pretty card using the image, Firefly Fairy, by Fairy Tangles, colored with markers. All papers used are from my stash.  I used glitter to add sparkle to the fireflies on the image, to the wings and to the band of stars across her forehead. I've used cream colored ribbon across the bottom and added a matching handmade bow.  The upper left corner of the card has been embellished with a metal filigree corner piece.

I am entering this car in the following challenges:

Doodle Doodle Doo - Then come link up your doodling project up with us at Open Minded Crafting!

My card for this challenge uses the image, Casey The Clown, by Lizzy Love Oddball Art, colored with Copics. My card layout uses the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. All papers are from my stash. I love the mix of patterns - Chevrons and Polka Dots!

Enter The Darkside




Have you ever wanted to explore your dark side of crafting? Well I have, but just never really ventured that way more than once or twice. But, then, I came across a DT call for a new dark challenge blog..... I debated... and I debated..... and I debated, again..... Then I thought, what the heck - I should apply! What better time than the present, to try something new - So I applied for a DT spot on the new dark challenge blog, Forever Dark. I was so surprised, and thrilled, when Anna contacted me and offered me a spot on the team! Whoo Hoo! Can you believe it! I'm going to explore my dark side in crafting, as part of the DT at Forever Dark Challenge!

So, the time has come for the first ever challenge at the Forever Dark Challenge Blog! The first challenge is an easy one - Anything Goes! We are a monthly challenge blog, so you have plenty of time to play along and link up with us!  There are awesome prizes up for grabs! Our sponsors, for our first challenge, are Ike's Art and ArtiDoodles.

Now, let me tell you all about my first project for Forever Dark. I mostly do cards, but I would love to get more into doing other types of crafts, especially altered items.  For my first project, I decided to try altering a wooden frame, which I've painted black.  I have used the image, Coralyne, from ArtiDoodles, colored with Promarkers and Copics.  I used Copics for the hair and tried the "flicking" method - I think it turned out pretty good for a second attempt at this method!. I've used flowers at the top of the frame, to add a pop of color. The flowers were recycled from an old flower arrangement. I placed a black and gold spider in the center of the two flower sprigs. This was such a fun project and I love how it turned out.  What do you think of my first Forever Dark project?

I am entering this altered frame in the following challenges:
