Out of This World at Faery Ink

Good morning everyone!!  Happy Wednesday.. I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Almost over!! Well.. at least half way there! Today I'm working from home. I think my hubby is going to ride his motorcycle up to to see my oldest daughter and give her her birthday gift today. Her birthday is Monday, the 9th. She is turning a whopping 21!!!  I can't believe it!! So, he will have a nice ride; it is supposed to be gorgeous today. And me... I'll work.. how is that even fair? LOL!!

Today I am showing you my project for the March Challenge at Faery Ink. Our theme for March is Out Of This World (Sci Fi/Celestial). All of the new images are AMAZING! I'm sure you will feel the same. Here is what I have come up with for this theme:

I had a lot of fun with this card. I have used Howling Moon which you can find at the Faery Ink Shop. I colored this wonderful image with my Copic Markers and I have layered the image a bit as well. The 'By The Light Of The Moon and the frame were both cut using my Cameo. I added a few star brads - black and silver. I added a few circle brads - glittery black. The background was created using three different Distress Inks that I sponged onto the cardstock. They were two shades of blue and black. Then I added some pearl spray to add a bit of glittery to it. I covered the frame with black glitter.. staying with that glittery theme LOL. On the inside I cut the moon, clouds and stars with my Cameo to add some fun to the inside. I hope you like it!

Challenge #26 @ The East Wind

Good morning everyone! Wow!! This is my first post since January! But... we bought a house, got all moved in and settled. Took a bit to get there and get to where I could start crafting again! On top of that I have been going to a boat load of doctor appointments in preparation of Gastric Bypass Surgery. We have been very busy here :) It is so good to be back!

For today, the first of March! Can you believe that!!!  My oldest daughter will be 21 years old on March 9th!! WOW!!!  I can't believe I have a kid 21!!! LOL  Yikes!!  And then my birthday follows closely after that. Getting old! HAHAHA!!  Okay.. let me get back on track LOL!!  Today is the new challenge at The East Wind!!  We are on Challenge #26 and this is a Freebie Challenge with the theme of Doodle Doodle Do (add some doodling)!! I love to doodle! And this freebie is UnkyToons Craft Time!!  AND I LOVE HER!!!  But then... I always love Kyra's images!! And her HUGE generosity to give us such wonderful freebies each month!! AMAZING!!!  So, be sure you are part of The East Wind group and have the monthly newsletter sent!  Sign up now if you haven't... you certainly don't want to miss anything!! Here is what I've done:

I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with this image and I saw this hat and thought... how perfect!!!  So, off I went... cutting my pieces with my Cameo. The image is colored with my Copic Markers. I layered her a bit. All of the papers were out of my scrap boxes. I had quite a bit of Halloween scraps LOL  And these were perfect I thought! I came up with the tag idea of 'Have Some Candy My Pretties' and cut it out with the Cameo. I added the bat sticker and the brad in the middle of that cut flower. I attached the tag to the top of the hat with a wrapping of twine. I also added a bottlecap to the side with the poison circle cutout in it and that is covered with Diamond Glaze. I also added two of those spider web stickers. Then I went to town doodling with my white pen.

Challenge #23 @ The East Wind

Good morning everyone! Hmm... mid week and what's been going on. Well.. we have the opportunity to lower our payment for the home we are purchasing, but that means stalling the closing by a week. The sellers wanted us to pay the amount we would be saving for a year. I'm annoyed! REALLY annoyed! We have been so fair I think. The home just appraised for what we offered. I don't know.. I'm just really annoyed! One week is all we are asking... before the first of next month. Just changing the closing date to the 30th instead of the 22nd. Anyway... that has been my frustration this week! LOL Other than that it has been a pretty good week.

Today I'm sharing my creation for Challenge #23 at The East Wind. And the theme for this challenge is Winter Blues (use predominantly blue):

For this image I used the no lines technique and I've colored it with my Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils. I used blue papers to go along with the image. I added some snowflakes, gems and brads. Pretty simple card, but I wanted to mostly focus on the image. I LOVE this image so much!  No decoupage on this creation!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01
  • Ice and Crown: B000, B000, B00
  • Eyes: B00, V01 and colored pencil
  • Hair: C1, V22, C3, V25, V28, BV08
