Cameo 17 Morgan's Image of the Month for September


https://my.digitalgoodsstore.com/faeentertainment
It's time for challenge #20 at Morgan's Artworld. Each member of Team B used the September image of the month (Cameo 17) for their Design Team inspirational card.

I colored Cameo 17 using Copic Markers and merged it with various elements from digikits in Craft Artist 2.

As you can see at the challenge each team member's work is different using the same image. It would be really cool to see what you can do with this lovely digital image. The new challenge theme at Morgan's Artworld is anything goes.

One Digi, Four Great Designs


Dis Digistamps is currently sponsoring the Crafting from the Heart Challenge and you can win some pretty wonderful digi stamps, if you participate. Since the Design Team had the chance to pick their images from any artist I chose Harlequin 1 from Scrapper's Delights for my inspirational card.

I love this digi so much that I tried it in 4 different color combinations! Have you ever tried that? It's fun to figure out which I like the best. I  believe my best is the fourth and last one I worked on.
Here are all four cards and the Copic Markers I used. You be the judge:
                                                                         Card #1
C3, C5, C7, R20, R29, Y38, G28, Colorless Blender 0 and Recollections Metallic Pen
                                                                         Card #2
C3, C5, C7, R19, R20, R29, RV02, RV17, B37, colorless Blender 0
                                                                              Card #3

Sweet Pea Baby Card

http://scrappersdelights.com/
http://scrappersdelights.com/
The challenge at Scrapper's Delights is still open for your entry. For my Design Team inspirational card, I chose Sweet Pea. I colored him in Copic Markers, but my two favorite colors are still dry. I am waiting for the refills to arrive. So I decided to try an alternative color to E00 and chose E01. I think Sweet Pea looks great and I've learned to make some new choices in my work. I cut him out leaving a narrow white edge.
I matted the basic white card with card stock. I cut a baby dresser and teddy bear using the Sizzix Thinlits Dies. The dresser is embellished with adhesive pearls. Both were glued to the plaid card stock. I placed soft pads on the back of the image, giving him a 3D illusion when he was popped onto the card.

I'm looking forward to seeing more entries to the challenge at Scrapper's Delights, where anything goes.

Special Freebie Friday!

http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_209&products_id=938
http://scrappersdelights.com/store/
Here's a special Freebie Friday, it's a pack of wonderful sentiments, which work perfectly with all the new and lovely circus digis at Scrapper's Delights. Life is a Circus was my choice.

I chose Lady with/without Hoop,  Fifi and Petra for this colorful Design Team inspirational card. They were colored using Copic Markers. I printed a background using various elements from the Big Top digikit and the chosen sentiment in Craft Artist 2.

I cut out Petra and Fifi and placed soft pads on their backs. These were adhered to the printed background to give a 3D illusion.

Check out those free sentiments in the Scrapper's Delights Facebook Group. You'll love putting them together with the new fabulous circus digis. You can even try your luck in the Scrapper's Delights
