LOC Challenge #28 - Ribbons / Flowers

Hello my friends! It's time for a new challenge over at Left of Center Challenges.  Our fabulous sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs and I have used Ursula Pinup for my card. The theme this time around it ribbons/flowers.

I have colored Ursula with pencils. I dug thru my stash looking for purple ribbon and flowers and I had none :( Fortunately I did have some purple dylusions spray ink, yay! I hope you can join us at LOC for this challenge!
You still have a few days left to join in to our 1st Anniversary Challenge - anything goes, so check that out when you head to our blog to see all the amazing DT creations!

LOC #27 = Favorite Books

There's another brand new challenge over at the Left of Center Challenges blog today, the theme is 'Favorite Books'.  Our wonderful sponsor this time around is Delicious Doodles.  I decided to do a journal page for this one.

Once it popped into my head what I wanted to do I went to figure out which journal I wanted to play in. the very first one I went to I found an older Poe project which you can see here.  And just by a happy chance the neighboring page was blank. Of course now that I'm typing I realize I didn't take a full picture of both pages together, ug.(will have to do that once there is enough sunlight to take a good picture) Anyway I used the same watercolor crayons to make the background similar to the first page. I have a tree stencil that I sprayed with ink and carefully put down on the page but it was still wet from the water color crayons that it just kind of blobbed everywhere. So I blotted with a paper towel. It doesn't look like I first envisioned but I think that it turned out pretty cool. The fabulous Raven image from Delicious Doodles really didn't need much coloring done. I lightly filled in some areas with colored pencils (lilac and silver). Then cut it out to add to my page.  The title I stamped with some older alpha stamps from CTMH. Then I added some random dots over both pages with metallic sharpies and a white paint pen.
What are you waiting for, create a project of your favorite book or story and join in the fun at LOC. We are still celebrating our first anniversary too so we have an 'Anything Goes' challenge happening all month long. Plus we have a new FB page we would love to see you there!

Happy Crafting

LOC Anniversary Event - Day 3

Hello my crafty friends! Today is day 3 of our Anniversary Event over at LOC.   For the event we are having an Anything Goes Challenge and there are many wonderful prizes. You can check out who our sponsors are, the rules for the challenge and see all the awesome prizes right here.
Our Anniversary Event runs from March 7th thru the 31st. Each day we are showcasing some of our wonderful sponsors. Today I have used a new image form Sassy Studio Designs, Sexy Cupid Sassy. This image just called for pink in my opinion.

I have colored her with pencils and used foam tape to pop her off the card. Her wings I colored really lightly with a silver pencil and then added a touch of glitter for some shimmer :) The hearts along the bottom are from  MFT - Layered Heart Border.  (psst  the LOC die-cut challenge is still going on too.)
So head on over to celebrate our 1st Anniversary and join in some crafty fun!  Oh and I almost forgot to mention we have a LOC FB page too! Come pop bye and say hello to us.

Happy Crafting!
