The sponsor this month is Mari Digis.


Here is the inspiration photo and the Twist is "Anything but a Card".  Cara picked our inspiration photo this week. Use the colors: Burgundy, Sparkly Gold, Tan, and Cream


Here is my card using an image by the sponsor Mari Digis.  It is Places of the World 3 and I saw it used on the Stamping Studio Facebook page and fell in love and went and bought it.

As you can see, my project is a framed picture. I have it sitting in my bedroom with all my other Eiffel Towers. 
I put gold Wink of Stella on the Eiffel Tower but it didn't photograph as well as I would have liked.  It's very pretty in real life.

I hope you will stop by the Outlawz Colour Challenge and think about joining us!

 Happy Wednesday! Time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!



Our sponsor for August is Digistamp4Joy. Our August winner will get to choose four images from theDigistamps4Joy store.



Here is this week's sketches. There are two to pick from. Pretty similar, yet a little different.
Sketch 1

Sketch 2

I chose Sketch 2.
And here is my card using several images by our sponsor Digistamps4Joy.  I used Underwater Scene, Misteri Mermaid, sea turtle, and Happy Birthday for my images. The digis were colored with Copic markers. I used 6 inch Wilton doilies for the underlayer for the mermaids.



The overall card size is 12 x 6 inches and folds up to 6 x 6 inches. This is what it looks like folded up. I used used some tropical diecuts to decorate the outside. The black belt is just black cardstock that can be pulled through the buckle to open and close.




Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!

Daffodils at the Outlawz Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday! Time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!



Our sponsor for August is Digistamp4Joy. Our August winner will get to choose four images from theDigistamps4Joy store.



Here is this week's sketch



And here is my card using Daffodil by our sponsor Digistamps4Joy. I merged three Daffodils together and colored with Copic markers.



My order of Oxide inks came this week so I used the Twisted Citron one to make a background around the daffodils. I felt like the daffodils were a little lost, so I used a brush marker to make a contrast around the flowers. Originally, my daffodils were all yellow, but they lacked pizzazz, so I made the centers orange. I added a sentiment and some black rhinestones to the corners and did some cardstock layering and I was done. The overall card size is 6 x 6 inches.




Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!

Outlawz Color Challenge 8-15-17

I'm guest designing in August at the Outlawz Colour Challenge. Hope you will drop by there and see what lovely cards the Colour team has made!



The sponsor this month is Mari Digis.


Here is the inspiration photo and the Twist is Inspiration.



My image is by the sponsor Mari Digis.  I used the colors from the inspiration photo and friendship for my inspiration. I colored the image with Copic markers. The frame is by Spellbinders, Timeless Rectangles. 
The stamped sentiment is by Fiskars. The pink flowers under the sentiment are made of resin and are actually sold for a fairy garden, but when I got them, I was thinking they were better suited to put on a card. 





I hope you will stop by the Outlawz Colour Challenge!

Favorite treat --Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge

It's Friday!  We have a new challenge  at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 




The themes this week are Straw Hat, Man's Profession, Favorite Treat, and Christmas.  

For my theme, I picked Favorite Treat and made a friendship card.






I used the Friends Cookies digi image by our sponsor, Bugaboo. I used my Copic markers to color the cute image. The Sweet background layer is also by Bugaboo and one of the digi papers from the Chocolate set. I don't see the digi paper set or the Friendship image in the store right now, but Jodie is busy adding in older images into the new web store.  The flower is from a set of fabric flowers in my stash.
The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.




I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!

Vintage Dress at Outlawz Sketch Challenge 8-9-17

Time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!




Our sponsor for August is Digistamp4Joy. Our August winner will get to choose four images from theDigistamps4Joy store.



Here is this week's sketch


And here is my card following the sketch using
 Vintage Dress 2 Coloured Version by Digistamps4Joy. The illustrator of the image is Jen Leeflang.




What a beautiful image to work with! And the fact that it is pre-coloured meant that I had no coloring to do and the card went together pretty fast. I used my oval stitched die to cut out the image and adhered it over my background layer which consisted of some white patterned cardstock on the right side and the left side was vellum over a soft red. 

I used some gold foil tape and gold and white dotted washi tape to go across the bottom. The butterflies are cut with a Stampin' Up! punch and the big gold flower is by Paper Studio. I've had these gold flowers in my stash for awhile, waiting for the right time to use them!  The butterflies, washi tape, and flower helped cover up the glue needed to adhere the vellum to the red paper.



Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!
