Cling Wrap

Hello, today I am back with another challenge project between BożenA and I and she was the one that came up with our challenge theme. Her choice was to use watercolors, cling wrap and colored pencils as displayed in this YouTube Video.


While I love my pencils, I am not a watercolorist by any means, so this was pretty much of a challenge. I decided to have a go at some flowers. Well while busy with this, I was reminded again why I don't work with wet medium. The phone rang while I was painting the flowers and so they were actually a bit too dry when I put the cling wrap on them and the paint did not move very much. But I did complete a card with them after adding the detail with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I fussy cut the flowers and added them to a card that I had embossed. I completed the card with two sentiment dies from a set from Spellbinders and a set from Pink Fresh Studios.

And I discovered E6000 spray glue!! It works wonders on the back of intricate dies with no mess. That is how I stacked three layers of that hugs sentiment together.


I decided to try the technique again, hopefully without any interruptions this time, and was able to get my cling wrap onto the paint while it was still good and wet. I was going for an aerial view of the sea washing up to the beach here. I used various shades of blue for the sea.


This time the paint moved well under the cling wrap and it was fun to watch. Once it was dry, I removed the cling wrap and the filled in some shadows on the waves with my pencils and added some white to the breakers for the foam.


I added the watercolored panel to a black cardbase. I completed the card with a one word sentiment for a Scrapbook.com die set cut out of gold foil cardstock with Stick-it adhesive on the back


This was definitely a challenge for me and I am really excited to see what BożenA did for this challenge as she is a lot more skilled at her watercolors than I am. Please head over and see her project and leave her a comment while you are there.

Progressive Transformation

Today is the 1 October. I cannot believe that we have started the last quarter of 2020 already. But it is also time for a new Progressive Challenge at Outlawz and our sponsor this month is Oddball Art. The image is called Sugar the Zombie.


Well zombies and anything Halloween is not my thing, so I decided that this image needed to become a journal page. The scripture came to mind when looking at her and so the page came together. I created a 4x6 inch panel in Silhouette Studio and added two digital background papers. The one on the lower side is a paper from the Galaxy Digital Paper set by Pe De Designs and the top one is a paper from The Paper Shelter that I tweaked the hue of. I added the gradient in the middle to highlight the verse. I added the digi to the bottom left-hand corner of my design


I colored the girl with my Prismacolor colored pencils. The roses on the top are stamped with Memento ink and a layering stamp from my stash and cut out with the coordinating dies.


We look forward to seeing your projects with this month's image and invite you to join the Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz. You have a month to enter.

The roses

I had to pull out my metallic watercolors again to play. They are so much fun and are beautiful to look at in real life even though photographs do them no justice. I needed a birthday card for a friend who loves roses, so I got busy.


Flower Crash

Today I am back with another DT inspiration for the Crash your Stash Challenge over at Outlawz. The purpose of the challenge is to get you to use something that is in your stash and you have not used in forever. The cue this month is paper or silk flowers. Our sponsor is Alex Syberia Design and I got to work with the digi called Candy Cupcake.


Partial die cutting

Today I am back to show you my make for a new challenge with BożenA. It was my turn to choose the topic and this time I opted for a technique rather than a topic and I chose Partial Die Cutting. The purpose of this technique is to take two dies and only partially cut each one so that one ends up with a new shape.


Inspired by Carole

Happy Friday! Hard to believe that it has come around again. Today I have a card to show you that was inspired by my friend, Carole. She created a card with a die cut lattice detail in the corner behind which she added a background that she had made herself. I used a digi from Imagine That Digistamp for my card.


Progressive Challenge

Start of a new month and it is time for the new Progressive Challenge at Outlawz. This month our sponsor is Jan's Digistamps and the image is from the Signs of Autumn digi set.
