Sugar Bowl Challenge #24

Here is my entry for the Sugar Bowl Challenge. I had to get on this weeks Challenge it was so fun.

VC Challenge #27 - Sketch

First off, sorry about the coloring. I took 3 pictures this morning and all were not great. I tweaked this in photoshop but the coloring is still not that great. The little girls dress is white and pink, I know the pink isn't showing up but when I got it to, the purple was ruined.
Anyway, this is my entry for VC challenge this week. It was a sketch to follow. I found I need some pattern paper in purple. I thought it turned out well though. I did turn the sketch. I though the monster fit better this way.

Digital Pen 2 Challenge #6

Here is my entry for the Mo challenge this week. I have my niece over to Stamp this weekend and ended up getting a bunch done. We had so much fun. This is one of the things I did. I bought this image awhile ago and this in my first use of it. I loved it and just had not gotten to it yet. The first time I saw this robe I thought of using some kind of fluff for the collar. This is flower soft and I think it worked well. I also just got the saying from Kraftin Kimmies Stamps. I thought it fit great.

Victoria Case #25 - Sketch

Time for another Victoria Case Challenge. This was a sketch challenge. I rotated the sketch 90 degrees because I thought it fit the image better.

Mo Sisters

I worked on some Mo Digi images this week. I entered to be on her DT so I am going to share these for a few days. I didn't make the first cut but maybe I will make a Guest DT sometime. I am still hoping to get on a DT sometime. I think I would like it and want to try. I will have to keep trying. This is the Step sister image and I am thinking of sending it to my sister. We aren't that close in age but she is my sister after all. I think it is a hoot.

Just a few from my weekend. I will be back with challenges next week and some more card...I PROMISE. I am also nearing the 5000 mark and I think there will be prizes.

Copic Creations Challenge - Mo

Being 'chubby' myself...I fell for this little gal. I think she is so cute. I wanted to do a color a bit out of the ordinary for a fairy. I need to step away from the ORANGE. I will make my next coloring experience something else.

Halloween Witch-Copic Challenge

For those of you in my hometown group....DON'T LOOK! This card is for an upcoming event with my stampers in my hometown. I had alot of fun with this one. She is fun to color and I think she turned out great. I went a bit on the traditional colors but my next one I may just switch it up a bit. I love copics but discovered as I was coloring this that my N01 ran out. I already replaced it. I must use it alot for undertones and things. I now have 3 that I am watching because they are loosing their stuff. I hate to repeat colors being I have not gotten all yet but if they are ones I use a lot I will just have to. I also got a new MS punch for this and I love it. I have been eying it awhile. I just love it and I think it will work for things other then Halloween. One thing you may not see is my use of stickles for the dots on the patch and candy. It pops it out...really.

Most of my life he had been stationed in Okinawa and is now retired there. I had thought about asking him to send me a Kimono but I never have.

I light blue, dark blue and Ivory look great together and being the challenge was over I included green and brown. I don't know if it shows well but I also lightly chalked the raised flowers and greenery in the background. I haven't used my chalks in a while so that was fun.
