Bendy Card

Well, I watched a video from Jen Evers and just HAD to try a bendy card. I wish I knew how to video myself working because everyone would just have a chuckle at my expense watching my many attempts. I love fancy folds, but often find them challenging. Do look at the video. It really is clear I'm sure for most people!
Open Card


The smaller hot air balloons, clouds, and sentiment are from Stampin Up.
The smaller balloons were colored with Distress Inks. The larger was cut from patterned paper from my stash.

This image came from Steampunk for Colorists by Hot Off the Press. I used my new Chameleon Color Tones Pencils. I love them!

On the Beach

This week, the optional twist on Twisted Thursday over at The Outlawz is Fun in the Sun. Our sponsor is Whimsy Stamps and I used this little cutie, Lexi's Beach Ball, playing on the beach.
I made the sea with glitter and the sand with some actual sand mixed with glitter that I died with alcohol inks. The sky was created with Oxide Distress Inks.

Stampendous Butterfly with Chameleon Pencils

I just got my new Chameleon Color Tones Pencils. I LOVE them. The colors are so nice and creamy and blend together beautifully. I grabbed the large butterfly from Stampendous and heat embossed it with Ranger silver embossing powder and then colored.
I popped it up over a piece of embossed and blended with Oxide Inks paper, added some Paper Smooches Silhouette flowers (double die cut to make shadows, a ribbon, and some fancy gems. Finally, I added a layer of Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.

Happy Birthday from a Primrose Sprite

I have seen these cuties before and finally have one of my own. This is Primrose Sprite from Aurora Wings. I am entering her in the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog as a birthday celebration card.
As soon as I saw this sweet sprite, I knew I wanted to color her with Prismacolor pencils. The background was colored with Distress Inks. The die cut is Sunflower Array from Tonic Studios and covered with Silk Microfine Glitter in Light Gold from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The flowers, iamroses.com, were colored with Copics with an air brush. And, the sentiment comes from Stampendous, Fresh Blossoms.

Thanks for visiting. I do love reading your comments!

When Pigs Fly

The Bloobel Progressive Challenge on Facebook for June had several images to choose from. I selected Fairy Pig.
I made my own sentiment with Word.  I trimmed the Oxide Distress Inks background with a Paper Smooches die, added a ribbon and some enamel dots. The little flying pig was popped up as was the sentiment. I added a second wing for dimension.
