Look around and see all the beauty - Bugaboo / Catch the bug -Free Friday

Friday May 27, 2016
 
It's Friday and that means it's Free Friday at Bugaboo / Catch the bug
 

This is my cared using the image called Beauty Butterfly.. I really wanted to let the sentiment speak the words so I used my favorite designer paper Amy Tangerine and added the Free Friday image so it looks like the butterflies are with the flowers. I love the sentiment that comes with the butterflies. I hope you head over to Bugaboo and get the image.. and look around the store and see what else is over there.

Every time you smile at someone - Aud #156

Thursday May 26 - June 7, 2016

Aud Sentiments #156  Today we are our own sponsor.. The theme is ANYTHING GOES / + SENTIMENT


I love it when we sponsor ourselves.. On these days I will be using my rubber/acrylic stamps.. I just used this stamp for another challenge last week and because I love it and the sentiment I wanted to use I used it again..  and I decided to make a Journal inspiration page for my 2016 journal..  I used some watercolor paper and black embossed the face then I took three different color of ranger inks and smooched them on my craft sheet and spritzed with water and laid my paper in the mess.. dried it and did it again - dried it and did again till I got the effect I wanted. I then stamped the sentiment in black. I layered it on some black - pink and then laminated the whole piece and punched holes.  I hope you enjoy and I hope you find time to play along at Aud Sentiments.. you have two weeks to enter our challenges..

What is meant to be - Inspiration Destination # 87

Wednesday May 25, 2016
 
Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #87
It's always ANYTHING GOES
 

Bugaboo stamps / image Meant to be
 

I chose to use the image called Meant to be.. I like this sentiment.. I think it would make for a great journal page.. hum.. I just might have to do that sometime.. I really wanted the flowers and sentiment to stand out so I used some soft stampin up designer papers and just colored the image.. I thought of coloring outside of the box image but then realized it would of meant doing the whole place outside not just beyond the swirl.. which I think would of taken away from the cute image and sentiment.
I hope you play along at Inspiration Destination .. it's always ANYTHING GOES..

A new chapter - Bugaboo - Catch the bug - new release

Tuesday May 24, 2016
 
It's Tuesday and new release day at Bugaboo  /  Catch the bug
 

This is the image for our new release - Book sitter 2 -  I sat him on a stack of book which is also a Bugaboo image. I used a couple sentiments from Tech. Tuesday and after stamping the sentiments I cut them apart to fit where I wanted them on the card front. For his levis I took an old pair of levis and cut out a 3X3 piece of cloth and used the Copic 0 and put some on the levi scrap and laid it on the pant leg of the boy. I colored the legs only first before I did this. You have to color first then do this technique to the area you want with the effect.. Then you can finish coloring all the other part of the image. I added glossy accents to his glasses to give a glass shine.   I hope you head over to the Bugaboo store and see the images Jodie has drawn. Also head over to the Catch the bug site and see what the DT did with this cute image.
