PIP Challenge 2117

We have a great sponsor for the current challenge!
 Without our amazing sponsors the 
challenges wouldn't happen. 
SheepSki Designs is offering the 
random winner THREE DIGIS!!
Here's my card...
It's all about coloring with this card.
I used Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers, 
along with a white pen for dots on the
flower and around the toucan's eye. 
I found a cute sentiment that 
suited the card just fine. Be sure to
go and check out Sheepski Designs now!

PIP Challenge 2116

This week's sponsor is 
Newton's Nook
Be sure to pop over and see all the 
fabulous digis and wonderful die cuts they have!  
Go check them out now!
Here's my card!
This was a fun card to create. We've had
plenty of April showers and it's been too
cool to play in the puddles. hehe. I paper
pieced the umbrella and colors the images
with Copic markers. The puddle and rain 
drops needed some sparkle so I added some
with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen. The 
images were die cut with the coordinating
dies. Newton's Nook has wonderful stamps
and die cuts. Some mounting tape was 
added to the back of the frog and raised up.
A couple of dots were added to him too.

PIP Challenge 2115

 A big THANK YOU to our sponsor

for this challenge!!

Jan's Digi Stamps is kindly offering a
$10 Gift Certificate. Without our amazing
sponsors the challenges wouldn't happen. 

Here's my creation for this week!
Here's the finished card. I really stepped 
outside my norm when working with 
digis. First I went online and did a search
for cartoon clouds. When I found the one 
I wanted, I saved it. 
Then I went to my photo editing programs
and added my Jan's Digi over the top.
Then I colored it with Copic markers and
created my layers to finish. It was fun!

Nothing complicated about this card.
Just coloring mainly! I used my TriBlend
markers to turn this cute bear into a cuter
Panda bear. The sentiment and bear 
download was just like they are shown.
