Funky Color Challenge

Just Us Girls (JUGS) has a fun color challenge this week.  

I used a Spellbinders die cut 4x into DCWV adhesive paper and an InLoveArts sentiment die.  I used every scrap and am so happy with the results!!  Here is the original JUGS inspiration:

WAY Outside My Comfort Zone...

 I buy a lot of my craft supplies from crafters in Facebook groups.  A very kind lady in one of the groups gifted me a Unity stamp set that is completely different than my usual style.  Made me try something new, as I don't color much, and I don't usually use images of people.  I'm pretty pleased with the end result!

Fab Friday has a color challenge using Stampin' Up colors, but all brands are welcome.  I used Stampin' Write markers for everything expect her hair.  I didn't have a marker anywhere close to brown, so I used some watercolor pencils.  The layers are Granny Apple Green, the raincoat So Saffron, the duckling is So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie blended together.  

Sketch Challenge!!!

The Paper Craft Crew has a versatile sketch challenge. I made my version with Echo Park I Love My Cat paper, My Favorite Things I Miss Your Hugs sentiment. 

I inked the Paw Print embossed background to highlight the paws. Here is their sketch:

Happy Day

Playing along with a new to me challenge - Color Hues.  Their prompt is blue and brown.  I always need more masculine cards, and these are the perfect colors!

SU Mosaic Madness stamp and punch, Tufted embossing folder, with Crumb Cake and Misty Moonlight paper, Soft Suede and Misty Moonlight in.  I added a water droplet type jewel to the center of each mosaic for a little interest.

Birthday Calories Don't Count!

 The Color Throwdown challenge colors are super fun:

I interpreted the colors a little softer than the inspiration image.  

Echo Park papers, Reverse Confetti sentiment and die cute.  

Send A Smile 4 Kids - Tweens & Teens

This month's challenge at SAS4Kids focuses on tweens and teens, who are often forgotten.

Echo Park papers, Simon Says sentiment.  I made the enamel dots with perler beads, melted in the oven on parchment paper.  I made about about 1000 dots in 24 different colors for about $3.  No black or brown, somehow they didn't turn out as nice as the other colors.  Come join our challenge and create a card for a teenager!

My Heart is with You

 Try Stampin' On Tuesday is having a sketch challenge, with an option for a masculine project.  Since most of my cards go to deployed military, masculine cards are always needed.  

The sentiment and die cut are from Reverse Confetti, and the background paper is from DCWV Far East.  I added some narrow ribbon for the vertical elements to finish it off.  Here is their sketch:
Cards for Soldiers and Send  Smile 4 Kids accept cards if you are so inclined!
