Donut worry - Always Fun Challenge - #115

Monday June 17, 2019
 
Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I have a card to shared for the challenge over at Always Fun Challenge #115
The theme is PUNNY
 


I knew I wanted to use donuts even before I saw the inspiration photo.  I have been thinking it would be funny to have a bite mark out of the donut and that the other donut would say "donut worry be happy". be happy you didn't get eaten up.  It was funny in my mind. Anyhow I used Altenew water color paints and painted the Simon Says images and sentiment. I used dies to cut them out and then used a scallop die to make the bite mark. For the background I used a stencil and Ranger ink. I then added the images. I used Stampin up die for the sentiment and added it. I finished with some copic shadows under the images so they aren't floating in midair. I went over the frosting part of the donut with Nuvo glitter pen.

Happy birthday to you - Always Fun Challenge #114

Monday June 10, 2019
 
Welcome back to my blog . Today I have a card to share for the challenge over at
Our theme this week is FOR DAD
 

Always hard to make a card for dad's. My dad's been gone for sometime now but it doesn't get any easier. Instead of making a fathers day card I decided on a birthday card. I colored this Tech. Tues. flower quite some months back and just never got to using it. So now was a great time to add it to a card. I painted it with Altenew water color paints. I took Stampin up gray card stock and an embossing folder as I thought it looked masculine. I added the flower and the My favorite things happy birthday. The Dad die is from Sugar pea designs.  I went over the dad with Nuvo glitter pen.

I guess this card could be the fairy tale  - Snow white .. or any fantasy cause I wouldn't have an owl or fawn right behind me. that would be quite a fantasy.. lol..

I have had this image for a long time and just now getting around to using it. I colored the image with copics and then used Genius die to cut the image out. I dug through my scraps and found this Quick Quote scrap so used it for the background. I like the script on it.
