you are so special - Do-Al(l) Creative #32

Thursday August 1, 2019
 
Wow August already..
 Welcome August and welcome to a new challenge over at
 
This months theme is SKETCH
 
 
sponsor Doortjes
Doortjes-Design-Digi's-Shop.
 
This is the sketch..

 
I did not use sponsors image

 I got a few months back in my monthly kit from Simon Says an awesome flower set and I love painting flowers even though I am still trying to figure how to do them.. I gave it a try and using water color paper and Altenew paints I gave this flower a try.. I went over the flower with Nuvo glitter brush. I used Stampin up stitch square die and distressed the edges with Ranger ink. I then dug through my designer papers and found this Moda scraps paper. The vertical green is not from that set but scraps from my box of scraps (that keeps growing). I distressed the edges of them with Ranger ink. I added the sentiment also from the SS set and stamped with SU ink. I added to the sentiment a gold heart and the acrylic dots to the side and bottom.. following the sketch.

Love you beyond measure - Always Fun Challenge #121

Monday July 29, 2019
 
Hello.. It's time for another challenge over at
 
Our theme this week is
 ANYTHING BUT A CARD..
 

I took a manila tag from Tim Holtz and using Oxide inks smooshed the ink down on my craft sheet and spritzed with water. I added the tag and smooshed it around and dried and kept adding here and there till I got what I liked. I then took La La Land image and sentiment and stamped this down. I knew I wouldn't color the image because I like the colors of the tag. I did take a colored pencil and colored her flesh but left everything else. I found this tape fabric by Tim Holtz and added it along the bottom. It went with the sentiment. I had a scrap of ribbon so added this to the tag top.
