Arbor Day CAS

The Sunday CAS challenge was to make a card with trees on it in celebration of National Arbor Day. I used the painting with embossing powder technique for this card. I stamped it twice and cut out a piece of the second image. Both images were layered on black paper.

Paper Ala Mode Challenge

The Saturday Paper Ala Mode challenge on The Outlawz was again "Anything Goes". Another of my fun old people from Rubbernecker.

Anything Goes - It is Christmas in April

 The Friday Copic Challenge this past week was "Anything Goes" with an optional Christmas Twist. So, of course I had to do Christmas! The stamp is from Great Impressions. Colored with copics and gold glitter used for the garland. The sticker saying has gliter in the leaves to add a little color.

Color Challenge

The color challenge this week on The Outlawz was to use fuschia pink, summer blue, and lush green. The twist was to use DP. The stamp is from Hero Arts. It was colored with copics and the largest flower was popped up. I added pink and blue stickles.

April Showers

The Monday Greeting Card Challenge on The Outlawz this week was "April Showers". It could be any interpretation of showers you chose. I did a Bridal shower invitation. I used double sided tape and put clear glitter on it. I then put a sticker on top of the glitter and colored onto the glitter with copics. I then fusy cut the sticker and did the layering.


The CAS challenge on The Outlawz this week was to create a wedding card. The image is a sticker that was sparkly. I added color with BIC markers. Layered with nestabilie ovals. The words are from Stampendous.

Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Wednesday Sketch Challenge for The Outlawz. The image is from Rubbernecker. I colored her with copics and added brads for the nails. I cut the fasteners off the brads and then glued them into the corners.

Color Challenge

The color challenge on The Outlawz this week was to use Purple Night, Dreamy Mauve, and Cloud White. You needed to add embossing (dry or wet). The embossing folder is from Darice. I colored the butterflies with oil based pencils. The sentiment is from Rubber Cottage. It looks much better in real life than the image I got with the camera.

Thanks for your Hospitality

The Greeting Card Challenge on The Outlawz this week was "Anything Goes". I had not played with any of my Mushroom Lane images from Cornish Heritage Farms recently, so that is where I went. Colored with copics and Glossy Accents added to the roof for some dimension.
