Outlawz Color Challenge March 27, 2018

Hello, fellow crafters! Today a new COLOR CHALLENGE has begun over at THE OUTLAWZ! And this month we have the amazing SheepSki Designs as our Sponsor! The winner will receive 3 digital images of choice! Now let's look at the Photo Inspiration chosen by fellow DT Member, Kimberly:
Member uses Blue and Chooses 2 Other Colors
Twist: Tell us what your twist is!

So there you have the inspiration! The colors are gorgeous! Now let me show you what I did:
Now, you might say...where in the world did she come up with those colors out of that picture?? I'll tell you: If you look closely at the picture, there are some shades of pink in there, plus some greens, and also some shadows (which is why I chose the dark background). The bow was made a dark pink...not quite as dark as it shows in the picture. 

My Twist? To use TH Ink Oxides as a "watercolor" base for her blouse. In this case, I used Bone China as the color. I then used some Prismacolors that closely matched the Bone China to do some more shading. 

There you have it! I want to say a HUGE thank you for stopping by! I really appreciate it! And while you're at it, stop by at The Outlawz, take a look around, and join a challenge or two...or more!

The Outlawz Color Challenge March 20, 2018

Hello, crafters! I'm a little late posting today. It's been one of those days with so many things to do and so little time. But...here I am with a new card for The Outlawz Color Challenge this week! Our amazing sponsor for the month of March is
Our winner will get 3 digis of choice from the store!
How awesome is that! And now for the photo inspiration this week:
Make project using 1 shade
Now let me share with you my card for this week. I had a hard time choosing which image I wanted to use, as there are so many gorgeous ones! And I knew I could pick the frog...he's green right? But I wanted to go for something "out of the box", so I chose Lilly.  Here is my card:

See what I mean? Lol! Outside of the box! So as you can see, there is a lot of green in there...a lot of shades! At first, I felt a little intimidated. But then I thought...hey, it's digital! I can re-print it if I need to! So I carried on! And I'm happy with the outcome!

I hope that you will join us for this week's challenge! Lots of fun over there!

Thank you for stopping by!

Shadow Box Project

Hello, Crafters! Today I just want to share with you a project I made. I had entered a Facebook challenge a few months back, and even won! Woo-hoo! Was I excited! This was through Reneabouquets, using items from her shop. You can find her shop through her Facebook page.

I won't be sharing with you details on this, but if you click HERE you'll be directed to that blog regarding how it was made and the supplies. Just a short time ago, I asked my husband if he would make a shadow box for this mixed media project...so now for the big reveal!!


I do hope you enjoyed looking at this project! It was so fun to do! Thank you for stopping by!

Crafter's Castle March Challenge Begins!

Hello, crafters! Today begins a new Challenge over at Crafter's Castle Challenge Blog!  For this month, we have the amazing sponsor Paper Wishes! And they are offering a $20 Gift Certificate to the winner! Yay!  I'm excited to share with you the papers that we got for this month's challenge, called Rooted in Love Paper Pack and the Rooted in Love Dazzles.

But before I go on, I have a BIG NEWS FLASH!!!
Crafter's Castle will be having their first
YouTube Video Hop March 17-23
Don't miss it!!! IT'LL BE SO FUN!!

So here is what I created for this challenge. I found this awesome fancy fold card on Pinterest. Unfortunately, there were no dimensions or anything on how to make it. So I got creative and decided I'd figure out how to make it. (Below is the instructional video.)



Of course, I practiced on paper that was in my scraps, not worrying about whether or not they matched. Lol.


My Project:




Don't you just love this fold? It may not be exactly like the original, but it's close enough for me. I hope you'll enter our challenge! Can't find your way? CLICK HERE for the Crafter’s Castle Blog.

Be sure to check out the other Design Team Members Blog and their videos!

Createful Heart Digis & Designs

Hello, crafters! Today I want to share with you a new Challenge over at Createful Heart Digis & Designs. But first, some new information. Createful Heart is now doing challenges on a monthly basis, rather than a bi-monthly basis. Still the same great prizes, though! Along with that, every mid-month to mid-month, a Facebook Sketch Challenge will be going on. So you still have 2 great challenges to enter each month.

For this month's blog challenge, we will be doing an Anything Goes with the option of Add Green or a Shamrock. I decided to do both! Here is my card:
I decided to use my Prismacolors on this card, rather than the markers. And I wasn't sure if making the butterfly green along with the leaves would work, but I decided to go ahead and give it a go. And I'm happy with it. I wanted the digital piece to "pop" out, so I thought some gold glitter paper would do the trick. As you can see, I have Shamrocks on all for corners of the top piece.

I do hope that you will join us for this month's challenge! Thanks for stopping by!
