Cast all your cares upon him - Catch the bug ABC

Monday February 18, 2019
 
Hello and today is Monday so over at Catch the bug..
It's Anything But a Card
 
 
 
So since this is my day I have a tag to share.. I always look for tags to go with my Bible Journaling and Studies.. So this one is for my studies. I used the Bugaboo image called Kidz hope/anchor/soul..
I started by using a Tim Holtz tag and I had this scrap of designer paper with the clouds and thought this was perfect. I adhered to the tag and then cut around the tag. I have these circle enforcers that I created years ago so I used one for the hole circle. I then fussy cut around the image. I colored the image with copics and went over her wings, stars and heart with glitter. I stamped the Paper Trey ink sentiment scripture..  This is going in my bible study book.

Wild thing I think I love you - Always fun challenge

Monday February 18, 2019
 
Welcome back for another challenge at
Our theme is ZOO ANIMALS
 

 
I have this fun lion from a Simon says stamps set. It came in a monthly kit from SS.. My friend a fellow crafter made a template she saw on U-tube and gave me one of them. It's to be used in a Misti or similar type tool. She used a 4 inch sq. then tuned half way and did again so you have this template with 8 pointed areas cut out of a plastic sheet. So I took the 4 in sq. of card stock and stamped the lion using only 4 of the 8 areas and this is done in the Misti you don't need to move the stamp only the paper so you have them evenly spaced.  Because the stamp is a little too large it overlapped the legs.. I hope I made sense on what I said.. Anyhow once I stamped them I used copics. I then stamped the sentiment and used MFT circle die and colored in the letters and went over the letters, lion eyes and nose with glossy accents. (the sentiment being in the center is because the legs overlapped. I then used copics in a few blue colors to color in the background. I found this Club scrap dp and thought it picked up the lion colors.  This was fun and I need to figure how to use the template so I can create a wreath or something.

I love these cute Pretty pink posh bees. I dug through my scraps and found this goldish color and the other side is the dots dp. Perfect for my card. So then I cut out the bees and laid them out well now I need flowers so I went to my favorites.. My favorite things and used Altenew inks and stamped a few flowers and leaves and die cut them out. Ok now I used copics and colored the bees and then added glitter to the wings and glossy accents to the bodies. The flower centers also got some glossy accents. I chose a sentiment from Simon says..
