Sweet 7 Challenge #9 - Anything New

Tuesday, January 13, 2015
Hi everyone.

Some fun news to share, I have just joined a lovely team of ladies over at Sweet 7 Designs Challenge Blog. Today is the day for the new challenge - Anything New - and what a great theme to introduce all the new DT Girls.

This year our challenges will be monthly and will be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. The winner will be chosen by random and will get 7 Bugaboo images of their choice. We will also have a Top choice winner that will be chosen from all the entries. This person will receive a blog badge and a future spot as a guest designer!

You can make a card for a new baby, new house, new job, new nose, anything at all OR you can make a card using any new craft item, a new stamp etc.

For my card I have made a card for my son who is starting at a new school this year. Transitioning half way through primary is hard, but he is excited and the Bugaboo Image - Deacon - School In Sign seemed perfect for his first day at his NEW school.

Hop over and join in this month's challenge!

Artbymiran Challenge #23 Anything Goes

Hi Everyone. Playing with more Art by Mi Ran images, so thought I would put one in the latest challenge here.

I used the Fairy Lily image. She is coloured with Copics and there is actually a lot of shimmer on her wings and hair, but as you all know it is really hard to take photos of the shimmer :(

Thanks for looking!

artbymiran DT Call..

Friday, January 9, 2015
Hi Everyone. I am trying out for another DT - I have discovered these amazing digital images by Mi Ran and wanted to try my hand. Not only is there a DT call, but artbymiran is celebrating its 1st birthday as well!!

I have been long admiring other's projects using Mi Ran's beautiful images (which you can purchase at her etsy store here. Her images have amazing eyes and amazing hair. So for my DT entry I have used Pearl. I would love to be a member of the artybymiran design team because the images challenge me and amaze me, and the sense of satisfaction that you get when you colour in an image when at the beginning you didn't know where to start for awhile.... and just stared at it .... waiting .... for the right inspiration to put Copic to paper. 

Here is my card.  She is coloured with Copic Makers, and the pearls, well I just had to pull out the Liquid Pearls - Petal pink - it gives them just the right amount of shine and a little dimension. The sentiment I used is from a Simon Says Stamp set called "Best Mom Ever".

Now that my time on The Greeting Farm DT has come to an end, I will cross my fingers that I can become a part of the artybymiran DT. Wish me luck!!

Tiddly Inks DT Call...

Tuesday, January 6, 2015
I have decided to throw my hat into the ring for the Design Team at an AMAZING company - TIDDLY INKS! Tiddly Inks have the cutest digital and clear stamps, and I would love to have an opporutnity to join their design team. The DT call closes on 15 January.

So for my card, I decided to pick the cute Wryn with a big ice cream - perfect for the weather we are having at the moment in Australia. Yes it is Summer down under and we have been getting 42 degrees celsius (that's 107 in farenheit!) This image is from the Sweets for my Sweet set. 

I stamped the greeting with my new favourite black ink (Black Licorice from My Favorite Things), and then I masked it out and stamped Wryn so it looks like she is just slightly behind the sentiment.

I coloured Wryn in with Copic Markers. I had to make the ice cream strawberry (my favourite) and I let my son pick the other flavour, and of course he picked Bubblegum! Tried my best to get the multicolour bubblegum flavour ice cream look on that scoop! 
I added glossy accents to the ice cream, flower centers and the sentiment.

Here is a closer look at the coloured image. 

See the shine on the word "sweet" and the ice cream - love Glossy Accents!

Thanks for looking and good luck to all the others who have entered the DT call
