color throwdown

 
 
Here's a cute card I made  using today's colors over at the 
 challenge blog.
 
 
 
 

"As always, if you don't have the exact colors,
it’s OK to substitute whatever is close to this week’s colors. "
 
I used teal instead of bright blue because it matched my background stripe.

Vampire Queen

 
 
Hi!
I like to share a card I made today with a stamp I just got from
Kraftin' Kimmie called Vampire Queen.
 
 
I had so much fun coloring her. I used copic markers....
lots of them!
The sentiment actually came with another stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie called Dragon Queen, but I think it works well for this card too! I stamped it on printed paper (from my stash, so I don't know who makes it).
I used black chalk around the edges ... I like chalk better than ink for this because if you mess it up you can fix it with a white eraser.
 
I wanted to add some bling to the white panel. so I got out my doodle bug sequins...
but they looked too big. However the punched out sequin centers were  the perfect size.
I tried with  a close-up so you could see what I mean.
 
I'm submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
and Kraftin' Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday Challenge.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
 
'till next time,
Doni

One Layer Card

 
 
Good Morning !
 
The challenge over at Less is More
 
is to create a one layer card including two images.
 
 
 
I used the balloons stamps from Simon Says Stamp and the
Birthday Wishes banner came
from the Art Impressions stamp sold at Michaels.
 
the ribbons and bows and dots were all hand drawn with a black zig marker.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

Less is More

 
 
Just a quick post today
before I get started cleaning the basement...ugh!
 
 
The challenge at Less is More today
is to use Autumn colors.
 
Here's my card:
 
 
The sentiment is a Verve stamp.
The leaf is a die cut
from an Ellison die we had when the Scrapbook Shop was still open.
I had cut a bag full for a class , so I have lots of them!
I colored it with chalk...very easy!
 
"till next time,
Doni

Wish me luck!
