Great is Thy Faithfulness....

The Greetings challenge at The Outlawz last Monday was to add fabric. Using fabric is on my cards is one of my favorite things to do. This is a church lady. The words were also part of the fabric with the ladies. The hats were from a coordinating fabric.

Tis the season

It is the last Friday of the month, so of course The Outlawz coloring challenge is Anything Goes, Christmas Optional. The image is from Unity Stamp Company. I colored him with copics and added blue stickles for the falling snow.

Witches brew

The Tuesday color challenge at The Outlawz was a tic-tac-toe board. I went vertically thru the middle. That gave me orange, black and a color of my choice - green. The Toxic stamp is from Unity Stamp Company and the cauldron is a die from My Favorite Things. I used an embossing folder on the card base. Bright green stickles were used for the bubbling brew. 

You are on my mind

The Twisted Thursday challenge at The Outlawz this week was to add a sentiment to your card. The image and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company. The embossing folder I used was actually a frame, but the image covered the "framed" area perfectly.

Mixed Media Background

The CAS challenge at The Outlawz this Sunday was to "do something you don't normally do. I never use my mixed media products for my cards. The background was created using Dylusions inks in mowed grass and London Blue. I then used a stencil and Viva 3D stamp paint to add a layer to the background. The paper immediately under the butterfly has the 3D stamp paint on it. The butterfly is fabric.

Something new, Something old, Something blue

The Paper Ala Mode challenge at The Outlawz this past Saturday was to use something new, old, and blue. The rain boots are new (unity stamps). The DP is old (from my stash). The layering papers are blue. I used used Viva Pearl pens to do the center of the flowers and the other dots on the boots.

The coloring challenge at The Outlawz this past Friday was an inspiration challenge. The inspiration was a picture of daisies. You could use the picture or the colors in it to spearhead your card.

Grape girl

This past Thursday, I was the Guest Designer for the Twisted Thursday Challenge at The Outlawz. The twist was to make a CAS card. I used a Bestie and colored her with purples and then embossed my background.

Under the Water

The Color challenge this past week at The Outlawz included the colors of Lapis Lazuli, Swan White, Grass Green, and Sunflower yellow. The twist was to do something other than a card. This is a canvas. The background uses Dylusions paints and inks. The images are all from Dylusions. I painted them with Dylusions inks. I used a stencil and Texture paste mixed with Dina Wakely paint to create the "algae". Viva clear glass effects gel was used for the bubbles.

Musical Bird

Wednesday Sketch challenge for The Outlawz. The image is from Unity Stamp Company. I used a piece of Tim Holtz Tissue tape on the background strip and embossed the background with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The 3 dots are Candi that were colored with copics.

Celebrate Spring

I thought that spring had arrived, but then this week I had second thoughts. The Monday Greeting challenge at The Outlawz was to make a spring card and include an animal. There was also a challenge for my stamp club to make a spring card. The image is from Penny Black.
