Challenge 61 - Recipe - 1 image, 2 ribbons/twine, 3 main colours

How quick time flies, it only seem like days when I was making my last post for Crafting When We Can Challenges.  This Challenge is sponsored by the wonderful

I used the image Bubble Gum Sassy.  I printed out the image larger than I needed, my colouring in skills are rubbish on small images but I'm practising with my Spectrum Noir pens.  I then scanned the coloured image backing to my CraftArtist and used one of the built in templates.  I then used the digikit Paradise to fill in the background and create the panels for my image to sit on.  I then cut out and glued the template together to create a little gift bag which I finished with 2 ribbon handles.  I also put a glass look bubble via the CA program over her bubble gum.

Crafting When I Can Challenges 60 - Outside

Happy New Year to All

For the first Challenge of 2014 we have a theme of 


and our wonderful Sponsor is Heather Valentin from

We were able to choose our own stamps for this challenge and I chose 
Maggie Springtime Flowers from the retiring section.  I used my new Spectrum Noir pens.  I had been collecting the sets over the months and then treated myself to the sets I needed to complete the full set for Christmas and my MIL gave me some money towards the pen racks too so I now have a lovely, colourful set of pens to look at and hopefully use ;-).

I used an 8 x 8 card because I printed my image larger than I wanted but instead of worrying about it I went with the flow and used a bigger card base.  The green card I used for the base is from a Papermania pack, the mats are from DCWV Stack 6, the ribbon I bought about a year ago and never used until now.  All edges have been distressed with DI, Old Paper.  I've been trying to get more shading because I have all the SN pens and I like the dress but still can't get the hair but I think this image is a wonderful one which to practice shading on.
