Some Odd Girls May Sketch Challenge.

So today i would like to share with you this months card sketch challenge over at the Some Odd Girl Blog.
Here is the sketch they provided with us for this month.

And after almost forgetting to enter this month...due to some serious work going on this month, plus odd idol etc, i finally got to sit down and make a card.

I used my copics to colour the Some Odd Girl owl image, then with a bunch of patterned papers from my minds eye i created the card. I really should have taken this pic on its side cause there is a lot of dimension in there but it is hard to see from this angle.

i hope you like it as i do!

Dont forget that Odd Idol is still on and will be until tonight for you to vote!!!! head on over to the SOG Ning Community to place your vote!!!!

Paper Smooches Sparks challenge - may 13th-19th Designer challenge

Hey there out there!, Today i have a cute card i created for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week.
the Challenge was Designer Crafts....

 And the sketch is shown below.

I decided to go down the chalkboard/painting theme with the sketch ans those banners were just calling out to be used as paint drips! and i had a new Paper Smooches set called i heart art which i had not opened yet.

Here is the card i created.

As you can see i made a chalk effect board which i stamped with staz on white opaque ink, dried then re stamped with embossing ink pad and embossed with white powder. When embossing the black card i made sure that some of the left over embossing powder stuck too so it looked like left over chalk. then i grabbed my copic markers and coloured in parts of the embossed images.
i lastly made a little paint tube and coloured it, cut it out and adhered it to the black card, i know your are saying you would not use paint on a chalk board! well a little creative licence did not hurt anyone :)

I clear embossed the paint brushes at the bottom then layered the black card onto brown card to make the "chalkboard" frame.
A few blotches of extra white ink and the card was complete!!

Here are the copics i used for this card.

I hope you like this card. If you would like to enter the challenge head on over to Paper Smooches Sparks Blog and have a go!!
