Well last month sure was a fun month full of awesome projects, you ladies & gents really strutted your stuff in style. So many gorgeous projects again… thank you everyone.  It would have been almost impossible to have picked a winner  if I had to do it myself.

 

 

 

 

This month we are sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs who are offering the following prize:

PRIZE: 1 (non-colored) digi to a random winner.

….and the DT team have these fun projects to share with you.  The team were given two images to  play with… so I picked these two cuties, and the ladies did a fab job.  Thank you ladies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Last month we had so many great entries, and I  am  happy to announce that random.org picked  this project as the winner for the Kit & Clowder Gift Certificate…

Wahooo…… I’m BACK …with a splash !!

Well I finally got time to really sit down and actually color, admittedly it was a quickie session… but I got to color and dang but it feels good. Here is a really cool image by Cute As A Button “Bathtub Mermaid” and as if you didn’t guess already… yup I gave my new Chameleon Pens Color Tops a whirl. Add on a splash of Sakura Gelly Roll for some glitz and glam and detailing.. and voila!

I mounted her on a ply wood art tile/canvas  using double sided sheets of adhesive tape and inked up the edges with 3 tones of Color Smart Ink pads.  I’ll add a protective waterproof layer before hanging her in the bathroom.

This is my challenge image for July for the Cute As A Button Challenge Blogspot… come on over and play

May Crafty Awesomeness Challenge

Well  this year is zooming past… it’s May already and  what a month April was. I’m afraid I am a bit tied up with some personal business, but  hoping to get back in the swing of things really soon.

The ladies have been busy playing with some fun images by this months sponsor, Rick St Dennis MFT. Rick is well known for his fabulous, fun and dare I say not so “cute” style of images.  If you haven’t run across him yet, you should check them out.  If you like something a little different and are bored of unicorns and fairies..or just want something a bit but more on the dark side, he most definitely has those too.

This months prize is 2 digi of choice (no sets, sheets, or pdf coloringbooks) for 1 prize winner

So here we are,  this months DT projects .. minus one that is running behind *cough sorry lol.. I promise it’s coming.

“A little Tutti Frutti” humorous Valentines card

I’ve been wanting to color this one for a while, but was waiting for the right moment to hit…  I am a creature of mood, so an image has to “speak to me” for me to really get into creating with it. Sometimes it is instant and I know the second I see it exactly what I need to do with it… specially those ones that tickle my bad sense of humor.  Others I have to let them grow on me and I bounce ideas around and then it hits me…

This was one of those projects.  I had the main image and the fun paper  done and sat waiting for  the finishing touches.. when it hit me.  I was just gonna have to write me a poem  LOL.   I hope you like it.

This is my DT project for the February 2017 Crafty Awesomeness Challenge and was created with an image from Cute As A Button, who is the February Sponsor.  Come on over and join in and share your projects.

This is IMG00221 Chiquita by Cute As A Button she was print and cut on the Cricut Explore and colored with a mix of Zig Kurecolor and Chameleon Pens. I popped some Glossy Accents on  the grapes and necklace for a subtle 3D feel.  The patterned paper is one I found on Etsy by AT Art Digital and you may have seen my “Do you digital?” post last week or two about these.

I printed this on my Epson Eco Tank, and then trimmed that down with my wavy blade on my cutter.  I added a black layer behind for impact which also has a wavy edge and then mounted it all on a card base cut from a Craft Smith paper pad using Zig Photo Tape.  The Pineapple was one of the Michaels $1.50 stamps and I stamped, hand cut and colored that. Sentiment die, I think was  a cheapie import???  cut on my Sizzix Big SHot

and the poem.. yup….  the poem…. that was all me…. sorry, having a “moment”  LOL.

Let’s face it.. not every girls is flowers and hearts.  I’ll take a good laugh over a bunch of flowers any day of the week.

Love this image, reminds me of Carmen Miranda…. yup… I know..showing my age again lol.

Hope you like it  🙂
