This fun image is called Monster truck.. It reminds me of my grandson who is 33 yrs. old. He loves hot truck and works for a motorsport truck company.   He's a mechanic and transports.. My great grandson loves to race remote trucks.
Any how this is my card. I colored with copics. I went over the flames with Spectrum Noir sparkle brush. I then used Lil Inker stitch die. I added this to a piece of My minds eye designer paper.. I thought it looked like a checkered flag.. I added the Hero arts happy birthday.

can't stop thinking of you - Colour Crazy Challenge #37

Friday September 20, 2019
 
Hello.. It's time for another challenge over at
and I have a card to share.


Since we don't have a sponsor this week.. We could use what ever we wanted so I chose an OLD wooden image from Imagination.. I stamped her on some watercolor paper and since I had my Daniel Smith watercolors still on my desk from Mondays card.. I used them again.. I am liking the way they come out.. I have Mission and Altenew and Kuretake wc.. but you know either I am getting use to wc painting or these are easier to use.. hum.. Sucks being on a limited income.. or is it best I am.. LOL. Any how I painted the image and background and a strip for the sentiment. I then used Spellbinder dies to cut both out. I dug through my scraps and found the yellow and teal so I ran the yellow through an embossing folder and then added the image and sentiment to the card base. I added some sequins. I really love using old wooden stamps and glad the first try on watercolor paper came out with a solid image.

I'm having a bad hair day

Wednesday September 18, 2019
 
oops... I posted two days early.. So this is the sneak peek on the challenge that goes live the 20th..- Anything goes/opt. fur
 
 
Hello.. I have a card to share.. I was the winner over at
SheepSki Facebook challenge in August. So I got to chose and image and if I wanted to be a Facebook Guest Designer for today I could chose another image. The challenge is Anything goes / Opt. fur... So I chose bad hair day image.
 
I colored the image with copics. I then used Ranger ink and went lightly around the white area with blue. I used Spectrum Noir sparkle brush on the blue part of the hair blower. I chose some Simple story designer papers to create the background. I have this Judith "I'm having a bad hair day" stamp so stamped it and used Stampin up die to cut it out and adhered behind the image. I added this to the card base. It was missing something on the left side so I tied some twine around it and added an acrylic dot to the bow center.  SheepSki has some awesome images. If you want to take a chance to win enter in the facebook challenge..
SheepSki Challenge also has a monthly challenge.
