Skating By - Crafty Creations Challenges

Hello and I'm so glad you stopped by today,

Challenge #320 has started over at Crafty Creations Challenges. The theme is ombre  and the sponsor is Lacy Sunshine. Lacy Sunshine has a great selection of images so please check them out.


The image I used is Bubbles Ice Skating and I just love her. I know that the winter sports are a little ways off but thought you might need to be cooled off a bit from the hot summer temperatures. LOL


Let me show a closer view of Bubbles and of that ombre background



That ombre background started out as a large paint chip, and it works great for an ombre background, doesn't it. I also used a silver mirror paper for some of the snowflakes and that circle behind Bubbles. I am so disappointed that those show as black and not the silver I was striving to have on the card. Guess I won't use that paper again on these types of projects.

Well I hope this card cooled you down a bit. 
The current Crafty Creations Challenges will end on August 2 at 10:00 p.m.
I hope to see a challenge submission with your name on it

    Memories

    Hello,
    Thanks for stopping in. Just a quick little card for everyone. 
    I spied this stamp a while back and have just got around to using it today.


    Behind that stamped panel is a paint swatch in the pink range. I love the curved top & bottom on that swatch. .And those pieces are layered onto a red card.

    I used red and pink sequins and pink pearls.

    Kind of CAS, definitely not my usual kind of card. 
    I love the look of CAS cards but I usually don't make CAS cards,
    I think mine always look naked. 
    But I think this came out nice. 
    Hope you like it as well.

    LET ME SHARE WITH YOU THE I SUPPLIES USED ON MY PROJECT
    Stamps:  Hero Arts - Spring Gems
    Paper/Card Stock
    : Red CS, White CS
    Ink: India Ink - Black
    Dies Used:  Spellbinders Square LG
    Accessories: Sequins, Pearls, Large paint chip (hues of pink)

    I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

    Thanks for stopping in today. I will be back soon.

    Crafty Creations Challenge #319 - CIean and Simple

    Hi there

    Crafty Creations Challenges #319 starts today and the theme is Clean and Simple. 
    Now that theme is definitely not my forte, but I decided this image from Beccy's Place (this month's sponsor) would be perfect for a CAS card. 
    I used Old Mailbox.
    Please take a few minutes to check out the images over at Beccy's Place. There are a lot of super images and I am sure you will find just what you are looking for.

    As I colored this image I was wondering what sentiment to use and then it hit me, since this mailbox was so old and falling apart there had been no mail delivered for a long time.  
    So that's why I used the sentiment I did.

    In coloring this image, I used my colored pencils and gamsol to do the blending. I added some brown to show some rust and some gray on the wood beams to show a weathered look. 

    Hope you like my version of a CAS card.
