Friday Freebie At Bugaboo

Good Friday morning and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned. I have to do our taxes, go grocery shopping and then I can relax and get some crafting done while I watch the Walking Dead marathon that leads up to the season finally Sunday Night. Nooooo! It is too soon.
Anyway back to the real reason we are here today. Friday Freebie at Bugaboo. If you head over to the Bugaboo Store you can grab this sweet little bear for yourself. And d forget to check out the wonderful creations by the Design Team over on the Bugaboo Challenge Blog.
For my card today I colored the image with Copics and used papers from DCWV and Kathy Davis Ambrosia 6X6 pad. The chipboard pieces are from Studio g that I picked up at JoAnn's the other day.
 I gave the nose and button a coat of Glitter Mod Podge. And all those lovely flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I was so pleased with the really quick service, the selection and the quality of the product.
 And then the inside.

  I also wanted to share this card that I made the other day using the Scene It-Snails image that you can find Here. I had so much fun coloring up these little guys. Again the flowers are from Wild Orchid.
 Glossy Effects really makes the eyes pop out. I wish the snails around my house looked like this.

I really hope you all have a great weekend.

A Fun Card; Good For Any Occasion.

This was so much fun to do. It really is an all occasion card. You just have to send it to the right person. Special. This is another image by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff of Aurora Wings.

So for this card I colored the image Ghost Bride with my Copics and then  used Stampendous embossing  powders and glitter and fragments on the background. I love the way this turned out.
I found a wonderful scrap of netting for around the edge. It is hard to photograph it so it shows up well so I am sorry about that.
 The face was a challenge but I went to the Walking Dead site to get ideas for colors.
 And then inside.....
I hope you all have  great day.

Another New Release From Bugaboo

Okay, it seems like I just did this post. The week went by so fast.  It has been a glorious week weather wise.  I just love the spring. I don't love the allergies but the new green fields and the mustard greens in them. I have Iris getting to open up and the dutch iris and freesia are in full bloom. The mornings are the best. Everything feels all glowing and fresh. When I look out my kitchen window there is a big pot of Ranunculi's in red and orange and the way the light shines it makes them glow. Just breath taking.  WOW!
So on to the New Release from Bugaboo for today. So spring! So Easter!
I colored the image with Copics and added some Glitter Mod Podge over the egg. The flower is a K & Co. punch out. The papers are My Minds Eye.
 Isn't she just adorable. You can head over to the Bugaboo Store and grab this up for yourself along with all sorts of Easter and Spring Images. And don't forget to drop by the Bugaboo Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful projects by the Design Team.
 Inside is so bright and ready to write. Ha Ha that rhymes.
Have a wonderful week everyone.

A Lot Of Coloring Fun.

I wanted to share a project that I did last week using an image from a New To Me Artist, Mitzi Sato-Wiuff of  Aurora Wings. I discovered her through a friends post on Facebook and I love her images.
This one is called Girl With Pansy and you can find it in her Etsy Shop, HERE. She has a lot of wonderful Images that I just can't wait to color up.
For this piece I printed the image on some Watercolor Canvas (Wall Mart) that I had hiding on a shelf and when it came out of the printer I sprinkled embossing powder on the still wet ink and heat set it. I knew it would run and bleed if I didn't and the only thing to remember is to have everything ready to go as it comes out. I have been known to start sprinkling on the embossing powder while it is still printing.  I think I will put this in a frame when I find the right one.
 The sun rays are done using a stencil from Memory Box and I used DreamWeaver: Pearlescent Embossing Paste for the texture. I then colored the edges with Copics. The background is watercolor and then the rest of the coloring is done with Copics. I just love my Copics.
 The circles are covered wit Goosebumps, The butterfly with Stickles and the pansies have a bit of Glitter Mod Podge.
 The rhinestone flourish is Zva Creative. The other embellishments come from all over.
I hope you all have a good weekend and come back soon for some more fun images. Do go check out the Aurora Wings Blog and or the Facebook Page.

Bugaboo Freebie Day

It is Friday again and I'm very happy about that. I am excited that I get to take a trip to San Francisco tomorrow  for Wedding Dress shopping for my niece. It should be a really fun day. Haven't been to the city in a very long time.
I am also happy that it is Freebie Day over at Bugaboo and Jodie has a great image for you today. It can be used for so many occasions. If you hop over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog you will see some great examples by the Design Team. And then head to the Bugaboo Store and grab an image for yourself.
For my sample today I used some papers by We Are Memory Keepers. The butterflies are from a sheet by K&Co and the image is colored with Copics.
 I really enjoy working with Goosebumps and Spray inks lately. Always a mystery as to how it will turn out.
 And the inside.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

New Release At Bugaboo

Good Tuesday Morning To All. I hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather here in California was just about perfect. So today over at Bugaboo, Jodie has an image that can be used for anything and if you head over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog you can see all of the fun projects the Designers have for you today.
For my card today I used some papers by Authentique that I found sitting on a shelf where it shouldn't be and everything just came together. I colored the image with Copics and then used Glitter Mod Podge to add sparkle to the wings and I used GooseBumps on the body and then splattered GooseBumps all over the background to work as a resist and then I sprayed the piece lightly with Recollections Spray Ink.
 Love the finished result. The spring and flowers words were on an elements sheet that matches the papers and the paper and crochet  flowers are from Michaels $2 bins.
 And I can't forget about the inside. Gave it a light spritz of  Spray Ink also.
So head over to the Bugaboo Store and Grab an Image or two for yourself and have a great day.

Friday Freebie At Bugaboo

I am so happy it is Friday and that it is a Freebie Day over at Bugaboo. Jodie has added some great new images to the Bugaboo Store this week and then to top it off she is giving away this little cutie. How perfect to color up and send to a friend that is struggling with tons of freezing weather. Just to give them a lift. The general consensus is that winter can go away now and we are ready for spring.
So for todays image I used three shades of off white Copics to color in the background and then colored the rest of the images with Copics also. The papers are Bo Bunny from a couple years ago.
 Very springy don't you think?
 And then the inside is finished off as well.
I hope you all have a great weekend and don't forget to head on over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog to see the Designers projects for today and then run to the Bugaboo Store to pick up your Freebie and don't forget to check out the New Releases for March. So much Fun.

 The image is colored with Copics.
 And inside.
