Bright and Beautiful

Hooray for Friday! ¬†Weekend! So sad that we are down to our final weekends of the summer ūüė¶

Ok it’s my team’s week at Brown Sugar and our sponsor this week is

My Besties!

We have a really fun color challenge for you this week! Look how bright this is!! Just perfect for your summer projects!

So for my card this week, I dabbled in some watercoloring. ¬†I say dabbled because I’m not very good at it, but it was fun to play! ¬†I used my Sakura Create watercolor markers as well as some copics and a few of the distress oxide inks!

My DP is from My Minds Eye Рan older collection called Notable.  I also just added a few little sequins for that pop of red.

A Journey of Memories

It is shaping up to be a nice week here! I think that summer really decided to step up and be present! ¬†I’m loving the sunshine…

Which is why for my project for this week’s challenge at Penny’s, I wanted to use this cute little travel pig and some fun, bright, summery colors.

Our sponsors this week are BUGABOO STAMPS (4 free images for a lucky winner)

 

and CRAFTY SENTIMENTS (3 free images for a lucky winner)

 

For my project, I’m using this cute travel pig from Bugaboo! ¬†I am using up the last scraps of the wicked paper I received and Crop & Create and Vicki Boutin’s class. ¬†I’m just about down to the end now. ¬†I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this week. ¬†I colored the pig with these AWESOME watercolor markers that I won recently from¬†Creative Scrapbooker magazine¬†and¬†Sakura! ¬†Oh they blend like buttah! ¬†They are the KOI watercolor brush set! ¬†Love them! ¬†The sentiment are word stickers from Tim Holtz. ¬†I hope you enjoy the card and don’t forget to play along with us at¬†Penny’s!¬†Be sure to stop by the¬†blog¬†and see what the rest of the team has for you this week!

I tried to give it a bit of a vintage feel…I used water color pencils and some water color paper for the image. I then went over the edges with some Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink . ¬†The DP is just from my stash and I distressed it a little bit as well. ¬†To frame the image I just used a die cut that I received in a swap and some little flowers that I have had forever in my stash. ¬†A few little pearls around and we are done. ¬†The sentiment with the little hearts is from Hero Arts – Celebrate Everyday set. ¬†I hope you like it, and please stop by the blog this week and let us know what you are creating!

Our challenge this week is one of those popular Anything Goes so I hope you will join us!¬† It’s going to run for 2 weeks so you will have until 11:59 EST on the¬† 26th of January to enter on our challenge blog.¬† Here is the card I created using the Ballerina set (we had the option of two images), just an every day kinda card.¬† I like those ones!

The DP is from my scraps and I did a bit of paper piecing for her skirt.  I decided not to use the copics this time and instead just colored with my waterpen and my inks.  I found the little flower charm in a little box and I love the little flower brads.  A little bling and voila!tle bling and voila!
