Sasayaki Glitter June Mid-month Inspiration

Hello bloggers, how's it going?  Things are going well here, even though it IS a Monday, lol!  Anyway, here is the card I made for the Sasayaki Glitter reminder post:


This adorable image is Flying FairyI thought she represented the summer theme pretty well, even though the reminder post is anything goes.  I started out by coloring her with alcohol markers, and I wanted to try coloring her hair differently.  I thought on ombre look from yellow to orange would be a nice look, until I was finished...then it just reminded me of candy corn!  Also, when I was coloring her dress, I had a BG15 mishap while adding color to the part of her dress that is between her arms.  I tried to fix it the best I could, but it is still very noticeable.  I wasn't about to start over though!!  I matted the image and background panels with bright orange card stock.  For the sentiment, I decided to cut out part of an oval, and place it underneath the image panel.  Oh yeah, and if you look closely or enlarge the pic, you might be able to see some Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen on the wings.

Challenges:

Fab 'n' Funky:  Bring Me Sunshine
Crafty Gals #167:  Summer Colors

Thank you for stopping by today, and I do hope you will stop by the Sasayaki Glitter blog to check out the DT creations, and the challenge entries!  God Bless!

June CCAYR Christmas Belles DT post---Non-traditonal colors

Hello fellow bloggers!  Happy Friday!  It's June 15th, which means it's time for another reminder post on the CCAYR blog.  The Christmas Belles have created some lovely cards for this month's theme of non-traditional colors.  Here is what I have done:


I was struggling trying to come up with colors to use for my card this month, but then I was watching a YouTube video from Cathy Zielske titled "Love You Bouquet"and inspiration struck.  I loved the colors she used so much, and I thought they would be perfect!  I started by coloring this Paper Nest Dolls Snow Angel image that I think was a freebie in an online magazine.  The background was one that I had sitting on my desk, still in the embossing folder (Sizzix), that I was going to use for some kind of technique.  So, I sponged Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide inks on the panel, then sprayed on some water and dabbed it off for that popular distressed look.  I decided that the green would be best used as an accent color, so I created a scalloped circle for behind the image die cut circle, and stamped my sentiment on a piece of green as well.

Challenges:

12 Months of Christmas Link Up #42:  ATG or optional "Make It Masculine" theme
The Outlawz Monday Greetings:  Use at least one die cut (Spellbinders)
Crafty Gals #167:  Summer Colors (my colors are summery, just not my theme!)

Well, that's all for me!  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all enjoy the weekend!

God Bless!
