FOOD FOR THOUGHT CHALLENGE AT DIGI DARLA’S!

Hello everyone!  I am late with today’s post as the past 2 days have been a complete whirlwind of activity!  My now 12 year old son, his birthday was yesterday, played in a soccer tournament at a place over an hr. away from here from 9am-2pm – which means we left here at 7:15am and I had been up since 6am (I am NOT a morning person!)  Then, we went straight from there to his team’s indoor game back in town at 4pm and then he had 2 teammates spend the night.  Today, up at 6am again to walk for an hr. at 6:30am and then go to 8am dr. appt. and had to get blood work done, so was fasting!  Seriously was worried about passing out.  Then ran errands for an hr. and a half, came home, did stuff here and then both boys had dentist appt. at 2pm.  Other stuff going on as well, but those are the highlights.

Anyway, so tired now but wanted to let you know about our NEW CHALLENGE at DIGI DARLA'S CHALLENGE this week and it is FOOD FOR THOUGHT, so we just want to see some kind of food somewhere in your project.  You don’t have to use a DIGI DARLA’S DESIGNS image to play along, but if you do, you get 2 entries per creation and get entered into a second draw with a chance to win 3 images from DIGI DARLA’S DESIGNS!! You just add DD after your name if you used a DIGI DARLA’S DESIGNS images.   Challenge ends on February 23 at 9pm EST.


For my creation, I chose DIGI DARLA’S DESIGNS “Picking Apples.”  I really love this image and I have colored her with Copics and cut with Lifestyle Crafts dies.  I had added a sentiment from Pink By Design and papers from my stash.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel, bling from My Mind’s Eye.  Sentiment is cut with Crafty Sentiments die and banners cut from Paper Smooches die.  Hope you will come play along!!

MY TUTORIAL FOR INKY IMPRESSIONS INSPIRATION BLOG


Hey everyone!  I'm back again today with my post for INKY IMPRESSIONS INSPIRATION BLOG. I am sorry I'm a bit later than I wanted, but I had to run my daughter's forgotten backpack up to school this morning, and it threw my whole day off!  Anyway, here I am with my inspiration post and I have 2 mini ideas for you today.


First is a background using Scor-pal and ink of choice.  Choose your papers.

Cut layer that will be last layer before adding image and embellies and cut to size, then make scors going down at 1/2 inches apart.


Next flip paper opposite direction and repeat scoring.


Now you have created a checkerboard pattern.  You can leave it just like this for a cool background or you can add some more color, which is what I chose to do with this Brilliance pearlescence ink.


So, I just daubed ink over the pattern, which brings out the pattern more and adds some nice color.


Next, I stamp my image from INKY IMPRESSIONS "Super girl Lili" onto Kraft paper.



When coloring on Kraft, you need to realize that since it is darker, you will need colors with greater saturation to make sure they show up well.  So, I have used Copic pinks from the RV family, but have stuck with RV 69 and RV 66 rather than the RV 14, 17 and 19 that I would use on white.  I also used RV09, 06 and 04 with just a very small amount of 02, but nothing lighter.  On her skin, I used mostly E13 and threw in some BV 00 and E53.  Finally, I went with E23, 25 and 49 for her hair, again a tad darker than what I would use on white paper.


Last, but not least, I have put everything together and added additional Core-dinations papers, lace from Hobby Lobby, button from MFT, charm from INKY IMPRESSIONS, cord from SU and sentiment from My Craft Spot, which is cut with Nesties as is image.  Bling flourishes from Prima.  Sure hope you like it!!
