Birthday Dance

Birthday month for Sandra Caldwell over at BabyCakesDND. You can join in on the fun over at her Facebook group!
I chose  #1592 Ballerina Hippo for my image. I colored her with Copics and added PrismaColor colored pencils for detail and depth. I also added some clear gel pen to the eyes, flower, and toenails. All of the papers come from WeAre3 on Etsy. I used the Celebrate for the hearts (Paper Smooches), and Just a Dress (Cut with Paper Smooches Flower Frame).

For the final step, I popped the sweet hippo on an Art Impressions wobble and added some fun birthday sequins.

I will be posting a short video showing the wobble in action. I do not know how to get this video to my blogpost though.

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments!

Dog Days of Summer

The optional twist this week, over at Twisted Thursday, is Wags 'n Whiskers. Our sponsor is Patties Creations, and I am using Dog Days of Summer.
I colored the image using my Copics and then went over everything using my PrismaColor colored pencils. The paper, from Joann's, is called It's a Dog's Life.
The stencil, Paw Print Border Die, is from Taylored Expressions. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things, New Best Friends.

House Mouse Painted Pansies

The optional theme for House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge is Hot Summer Days. Living in central Arizona, well, I am quite familiar with temps well over 100 degrees for the long days of summer. Even with these temps, flowers seem to be quite happy as long as you give them lots of water.
This sweet image, Painted Pansies, was colored with Copics. There's also a bit of clear gel pen over the jar, and some purple gel pen over the words. The frame is from MFT Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle. The Hello is from Honey Bee and is popped up.

Alice Fell

Well, I didn't make you wait very long for the second image that Sandra Caldwell drew from my suggestion. Check yesterday's post if you do not know what I am talking about.  BabyCakesDND is the place to go to see her fantastic digital images, or take a look at her Facebook fan group.
I'm a real "Alice" fan, and I wanted a drawing of Alice actually falling. This image from Sandra, Alice Fell, was colored with Copics. I cut out the image with the Creative Basics Fancy Rectangles set from C.C Designs (on sale right now), backed it with gingham paper from My Favorite Things, double colored the card and clock to pop them. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the sentiment came from an ephemera pack from Echo Park.

Knot a Giraffe

Sandra Caldwell of BabyCakesDND had a contest on Facebook. She asked for suggestions on what she should draw next, and if she selected two of yours, she would draw them both and one would be given as a prize. I was so excited when two of mine were chosen. This is the first one that I have colored.
The image, Knot a Giraffe, was colored with Copics. He is popped over a die cut that was from Queen & Co., but I can't find it any longer to link. The sentiment was one is just made up and printed off of my computer. Fun and quirky wedding card, LOL!

Want to know what else I selected and Sandra drew? Well, you will just have to wait until I have time to color that one up.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm always so happy to read any comments that you take the time to leave for me.

Allie in Fishbowl

A new month and a new sponsor over at Twisted Thursday. Our sponsor is Patties Creations, and I am using Allie in Fishbowl.
I colored the image using my Copics and then went over everything using my PrismaColor colored pencils. The background is a stencil from Altenew called Warp Speed with Nuvo mousse in gold. The edges were brushed with Distress Oxide Inks then sprayed with Sparkle Shimmer Spritz. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, stamped with Teresa Collins Glitz Gold and embossed with clear embossing powder. The little white die cuts were just sitting on my desk, so I'm not sure where they came from, LOL!

Christmas in July

The July challenge for Paper Smooches is Christmas in July. And, Through the Craftroom Door, has a pretty sketch, so I combined the challenges.
The image, colored with Copics, is from The Chubby Chum Pals and I used the matching dies and popped it on the card. The fun ric rac was cut from the Borders 3 die set. The stitched flags are from C.C Designs, and the papers all came from Gina K Designs. The sentiment came from the Chubby Chum Pals set, and I added three jingle bell brads from my stash.
