Sugar 'n Spice Dolls Howdy

We have a new challenge here at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and this one has an opened theme that lends well to many cards that are created this time of year - whether it's Halloween, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, Winter or even Summer!!  The challenge theme is "Anything Goes*" but we have a small twist for this round.  If you noticed the asterisks then you're a lap ahead - the special twist is we want to see products using my favorite stamps! 

ANYTHING GOES
*Using an image from any of these brands as the main focus of your project:

Little Miss Muffet Stamps
Pollycraft
Bugaboo
Make it Crafty
Wee Stamps
Roberto's Rascals

Of course, it's easy to see what my favorite stamps are when you look in Little Miss Muffet Stamps - cuz they're all their!    I also like the fact that it's any Anything Goes because now I can share one of my saved projects and join in on the fun.

For my project today, I'm sharing a page in my traveling journal.  I used an actual Texas map for the background then added my sentiment and two darling Wranglers to adorn the page.  The images I used are Sugar 'n Spice Dolls Dill as Jesse James and Sugar 'n Spice Dolls Sage as Annie Oakley.



Thanks for dropping by and now I'll sign off with a big 
Howdy from Texas and ya'll come back now ya hear!

I Love You Slow Much

Sharing is caring and thinking about sharing this project lifts me up a bit. It's like getting a little hug from y'all.  ♡  the stamp I used is I Love You Slow Much which is a Wee Stamp rubber stamp from Whimsy and also one that is available in my shope at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I love how cuddly this hug is.


 I stamped it in gray and colored it in Copic markers to match the papers.  I also used paint to color the chipboard from Make it Crafty.  Then I used embellishment I had at hand to finish the card.



Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Roxi Sprite

The challenge this month at Make it Colourful is"Two-tone Monochromatic and Abstract Background."  It's a mouthful but it's nothing to be afraid of.  The gist of the challenge is to use two colors and color your image, one on each side them blend them together.  I choose to work on this scene and each object is blended this way.  The images I used are Roxi Sprite and Hideaway Castle from Make it Crafty.


I chose red and blue and wanted to create n eerie scene but then after it was all colored, poor Roxie Sprite was lost.  It was a good thing I went for the background first so I decided Roxie should be a white ghost.  I also colored the sky black which helped to make her stand out more than the scene.


Here's a close up of Roxie which shows how simple I kept the coloring.  I used C5, C3 plus a little R12.   Then to draw in the attention, I gave her glowing eyes.


Thanks for dropping by and hope you have a wonderful week!

Soprano Opera Signer

It's finally over!!  Right?  LOL  I've listened and put this gal in my project journal and can safely say it's complete.  I started this project a long time ago even though I wasn't sure what the end product would look like.  The scene was created using the Paris Elements Digit Collection where I wanted to be creative in creating a balcony for the Soprano Opera Singer to ring out the final scene. 






Once the scene was created, I carried it along with me until I had few moments and started to color it on one of my travels and used Prismacolor Pencils because they were easy to tote.  If you've followed along in the Make it Crafty Facebook group then you'll already know that I started with the skin and wasn't too sure about the colors.  However, I pressed on and finished the Opera Singer complete.





Once that was complete then I worked on the background but used the wrong color and the whole image looked washed out.  I was about to give up but form suggestion from you, I worked on the spotlight and a drop shadow.  That seemed to help fix the color problem and created a fun effect too; and with more support from you, I went ahead and affixed it to my traveling journal.





Here's what the image looked like as a scanned image where I think the colors are more true to life.
