Bossy

Challenge #SSS67 Sketch   http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/sblogspot.com/  
Challenge #30 Anything Goes   http://paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/ 
Challenge # Anything Goes  http://stamp-n-doodle.blogspot.com/
Challenge #93 Pattern  http://onestopcraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ 




For this project I used a Mo Manning digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.  The stamp is called "Bossy" and I love the image - it is so typical of a young child and thankfully only a temporary blip. 

The stamp image was coloured using copic pens and I used stickles for the inner dress and socks.  I must point out that the reds on the actual card are much more intense - can only presume that the camera flash has affected the colours.

The sketch is from Sweetstopsketches 

The papers are from "Forever Friends" CD Rom and the red mirror card is some I bought some time ago.  And finally the card was embellished with a couple of red brads and gems.

Regards  Sharon

Challenge #30 Anything Goes  http://paperplaychallenges.blogspot.com/
Challenge #Anything goes   http://stamp-n-doodle.blogspot.com/
Challenge #91 Pattern   http://onestopcraftchallenge.blogspot.com/



For this project I used the sketch from Sweetstopsketches


The stamp is a digital image from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil, I really love this image and is one of her newer stamps.  I used copics to colour the angel and stickles for the wings and ground.

The backing papers were from Debbie Moore's CD Rom.  I particularly like the gingham pattern as I think it never dates and always look fresh and clean.  I used a Martha Stewart edge punch to create the die cut pattern on the image.  Then I finished the card with ribbon, a bow and a couple of gems.

I live the softness of this card, hope you like it too.

Best wishes, Sharon

Challenge #69 Card for Boy/Man  http://stampwithfun.blogspot.com/


For this project I chose a Mo Manning digital stamp from "Mo's Digital Pencil".  The image was coloured with copic pens.  I embossed a frame around the image using straight lines, criss crossing the corners.  I cut the corners using a corner punch and embellished with a couple of blue gems.

The backing papers were from Crafters Companions.  I added a ribbon as a finishing touch and chose colours that would reflect a masculine card.

Challenge #5 Make a flower  http://craftaliciouschallenges.blogspot.com/


For this project I chose a digital stamp from "Mo's Digital Pencil" drawn by Mo Manning.  I used copics to colour the girl and gel pens to colour the flowers.  I used a fine liner pen to create the faux stitching effect.  I matted this on some pearlised cardstock which had been embossed using the "Imbossibilities" folder.

The backing papers were from Crafters Companion and I used a Marianna die to cut the petals for the flowers.  Then I layered the petals and finished with a brad.  The card was finished with some black and silver thread ribbon.

Challenge #78 Summer Lovin'  http://craftycreationschallenges.blogspot.com/
Challenge #103  http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.com/ 




For this card I incorporated the three challenge criteria's above.

The stamp I chose for this project was a Sugar Nellies stamp by Elizabeth Bell which I think is not only cute but also summery.  I coloured the image using the three colours specified by Color Throwdown challenge and used 2 design papers (both from Debbie Moore's CD Rom), 3 embellishments (Flower, ribbon and brad) and the image depicts the outside.

Paper flower was cut using a Marianne die.

I quite like this combination of colours as the card look fresh and elegant.
