Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

PDCC

I must admit that tea is one of my favorite drinks, either hot or cold. There seems to be a surge of stamps and dies out there recently to which I have started to accumulate. This digi stamp is from priscillstyles digi store and is for the progressive challenge at the Crafter’s Digital Art Centercdacpc23.

I used various embossing folders and Spellbinders dies for this card. The sketch is from this week’s Verve Stamps’s Mojo Monday #266 challenge. The color combo is from Play Date Cafe’s #157, plum, fuschia and wisteria.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Isn’t she so carefree just skating away? I LOVED rollerskating as a kid AND as an adult. What fun we had!! My sister was roller queen, but I wasn’t half bad 🙂

This card is for the Some Odd Girl sketch challenge and for the Play Date Cafe’s color challenge PDCC151 this week. I used a couple stamps from The Stamps of Life for the sentiment.

For Copic colors, I used E000, E00, E11 for the skin; E29, E39, E49 for the hair; YR15, YR16, YR18 for her sweater & scarf; R35, R37, R39 for her vest, socks and wheels; G20, G21, G24 for her pants and G0000, G000 for the skate highlights.

Have a great Saturday!

When this digi stamp came out at Some Odd Girl, I just had to have her! She is SO stinkin’ cute!

Yesterday was Facebook Fun Day with Some Odd Girl and a challenge was given to print an image on fabric and color with Copics. I was able to find my Sticky Back Canvas, so into the laser printed it went with Bookish Tia on it! It was a little challenging to have a light touch with the coloring since the canvas sucked up the ink if you left it too long in one spot or tried to blend too much. I really like the effect!! Here’s my card:
