It's always fun to play along with the Double Trouble Challenge Blog. Challenge #20 is all about love and sparkle. Love is in the air; give someone a hug! (But, maybe not a hedgehog?) Do stop over to read all the different ways you can have more chances to win, and be inspired by the DT and their Crazy Cousin!
I used this adorable hedgehog stamp, from Penny Black. I colored it on Kraft with Luminance Colored Pencils and added some Distress Inks along the edges. For that "sparkle" and shine, I went over different area with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. The Basket Weave is from a Stampin Up/Sizzix embossing folder.
Day two for the Poe Appreciation Day blog hop over at Leigh SB Designs has me doing a card today. Yesterday, I did a journal page which, if you are interested, can be found on my Art Journal Blog.
For today's entry, I selected the Tangled Raven Dark image which I placed over some of the words from Poe's work, The Raven. (As a certified Zentangle® teacher, I appreciated the tangled bird.) One of them, I flipped so they could be chatting with each other.
I used Copic and Prismacolor pencils on the birds, Distress Oxides for the background. The papers were Copic air brushed to match the Copic colors I had used on the birds. Finally, I added a few Nuvo drops for added texture.
Thanks for visiting. I do enjoy reading your comments.
I just had to use one of my favorite stamps from Paper Smooches, Chubby Chums. I found a small wooden stamp in my stash that had just the right sized mittens to cover his cold little paws. The sky is a bit of Distress Oxides. The tree is from a Fiskars stamp that I embossed with brown ink. The snowflakes, from the same set, were stamped and heat embossed with white. The greetings come from a set by Stampendous, Snowy Stack. The little kitty was colored with Copics and placed on a wobble on top of a hill using Lawn Fawn's Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. A bit of Nuvo glitter topped those snowy hills. Finally the warm kitty was placed on an action wobbler to shake off those snowflakes!
Paper Smooches has an anything goes challenge for January Creative With Stamps has a challenge to use mittens!
Thanks for the visit. I love reading your comments!
I colored the main image with Copics and Prismacolor colored pencils. The green is Distress Inks. The yarn was a bit (okay a lot) uncooperative, but I finally tamed it with lots of glue, sticky tape, snot dots, and hot glue gun!
