LSS 25 'Bingo'

They are playing BINGO at Lacy Sunshine and boy is it fun.

I chose the second line down (pearls, glitter, and charm)
I used 'Jewel June bug Bugmee' which is free if you used a Lacy Sunshine image in the last challenge, if you did not, it will be sold to you at a very discounted price. (More details on the challenge blog)
OMGosh was this ever fun! First I colored her with copics (skin too!) I decided she needed leopard. I used the PNG version and made my own background. Then I made my own charms with a die cut from SU, shrink plastic and glimmer mist.
Then I found some flat back cranberry pearls and a puffy ladybug sticker in my stash.
Added glitter glue to her wings. toe, and her antenna's

Digi Darla's #99

The new challenge at Digi Darla is vintage and is based on this photo.
Isn't it a beauty?
I chose DD 'French Shopper'
Colored with copics. Decorated her hat with pearls and I put jewels on the bags and embossed with a cuttlebug folder!

Our challenge this week at Lasting Memories is 'One Word Resolution'

This is the view outside my front door
This is a hybrid LO since it is part digital and part paper.

Sweet Pea Stampers

Our new challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers is called 'Flower Power', so I used 'Rose by Rachel Anderson'
I colored everything but her hair and skin with copic's, added stickles to her wings. The butterflies are a stamp and matching punch from SU. Also I did a very little quilling.

January Challenge

Our challenge this month at 'One Sweet Challenge'  is Black and white and grey is acceptable. Not as easy as you-all think! I used 'Endless Love by Teresa Sherman' at Sweet Pea Stamps.
I wanted to try this doodling technique and this was perfect and it a Valentines card for my friend that collects dragons. I colored my digi with prisma and copics and doodled on Teresa's dragon. COOL HUH!

DD #98

A very late Digi Darla DT inspiration!
We were challenged to create something "Alphabet", so I made a birthday card for my nephew Xavier.
I used Digi Darla's 'Music Man'
I was wringing my hands to use this very cute digi and it seemed like the perfect time is now since I will be visiting him for his birthday in a couple! I colored him with copics and then got tired of concentrating to stay in the lines so I switched to prisma (the flowers, skin, and hair are prisma, the rest is copic!)
(I guess I could have not stayed in the lines becuz he's only going to be seven and then he never would have noticed but I would have!)

Sweet Pea Stampers

Sweet Pea Stampers has an anything goes challenge. HOW COOL!
I used the beautiful 'Spring Moony Night by Ching Chou Kuik.'
I took myself outta my comfort zone and colored the whole thing with copics except for her skin. (totally not comfy with that) I used liquid pearls for her earring and stickles on her scales. I'm not comfortable as it is with my copics and what happens! I run out of the colors I was using on her hair and then I had to compromise, OYE VEY!
Found the tree punches in my stash an thought they looked like coral. Used a corner punch on my squares in the middle.

Digi Darla's #97

Good Morning!
Time for a new challenge at Digi Darla's an it's another 'Copy Cat'
Go get your free cute image here.
Here's mine!
My image is colored with copics and I added diamond dust and diamond stickles.
I had a corner punch from my stash and the frame punch for my sentiment is from SU and is blank because I don't know the sentiment yet.

Lacy Sunshine Challenge

This is the 24th Lacy Sunshine Challenge.
It's most always Anything Goes, and this is no different, the theme is 'Love is in the Air' Here is Heather's CUTE 'Rory Love Letters'
This a trifold zig zag card
 You can get this image free if you used a Lacy Sunshine stamp in the last challenge and I did! Or you can get started by buying her at the low price of $2.00 and she has an instant DLed, how special is that. ( I hate to wait!)
This is the first time I colored hair in this manner with copics! The bows and eye were done with copics and the rest with prisma pencils. My DSP is from SU and the hearts are from SU also (framelits and embossibilities) I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the top. To add dimension I printed it twice and colored the flower and then fussy cut it out and glued it on top of the other. The little mini tag is a punch from SU also!

Her bag is supposed to be her hat, BOY DID I HAVE IT ALL WRONG! I'm such a DORK! I emailed to ask her what the button on the bottom was, if you turn it upside down, you can see that it is a hat, Rory always has a hat! Well today she has a designer handbag. LOL!
