My Guest Design Post for Cards/Crafts Galore


I'm honored to have been invited to be the very first guest designer for the Crafts/Cards Galore Challenge Blog in the United Kingdom!!! It's August (can you believe it?!) and it's time for a challenge!! Here's a sneak peek at my project. Can you guess what the challenge is?????



It's a Bingo challenge!!! Should you choose to accept this awesome challenge, create a project using any three elements in the grid that connect horizontally, vertically or diagonally!




The challenge sponsor is Scrapper's Delights. The lucky winner will receive $10 to spend on their digis in the Scrapper's Delights store!



Here's the card I created using the birthday, flowers, embossing line on the bingo card. My vision started with one of the fairies in the Scrapper's Delights - Pixie Corner Digi Set 1. I chose this one because it reminds me of my 8 year old daughter. After spending lots of time coloring this lovely digi,  I designed the birthday card with the challenge elements. It was very hard to choose because everything I wanted to use did not connect on the bingo grid. But I LOVE a good challenge!! Don't you?


Copics:

  • Outline B0000
  • Hair C1, C3, C5, BV23, B95
  • Skin E33
  • Eyes YG11, YG63, opaque white pen
  • Lips R85
  • Top/shoes YG11, YG61, YG63
  • Skirt Y00, Y21, Y26
  • Wings RV00, RV21


Here's the inside view....

Supplies:
  • Scrapper's Delights - Pixie Corner Digi Set 1
  • Neenah white cardstock
  • Copic markers - 18 to be exact!!!
  • Ink - Hero Arts Neon Ink, Ingrid Boheme Cold Ice fluid chalk ink
  • American crafts - 5x7" pink card
  • Creative Memories cutting system - oval
  • Embossing folder - Sizzix Cloudy Day embossing folder from Stampin' Up!
  • Happy Birthday (inside sentiment) and party hat - Recollections
  • Ultra fine transparent crystal glitter - Stamplistic
  • Scotch ATG and Quickie glue pen
  • Celebrate stamp - Fiskars It's your day set
  • Flowers - Leeza Gibbons Wishes and Dreams - Essential Petals
  • American crafts - white galaxy marker
  • Stickles

My favorite parts are the glittery wings (ultra fine glitter) and the fairy dust (Stickles). Best of all is my coloring. I am very proud of myself. This is the first time I colored with Copics to layer colors and creating shading. I have decided to go get Copic certified next year! I'm enjoying it so much!



I hope you check out the challenge and the sponsor! Both fantastic! Thanks for dropping by!!
