A new year and a new project. I seem to be into canvas projects lately. The current sponsor of the Crafting from the Heart challenge is Lacy Sunshine. I chose to use two adorable digis for this project: Reggie Movie Take One and Reels of Film Rory.

Each of these images were colored using Prismacolor Pencils. I placed the images in the Craft artist 2 program and merged them. I printed the merged image larger than usual and cut it out.

I made a collage background of pieces from the Graphic 45, Curtain Call scrapbook paper and adhered the colorful image on top.

I hope you are inspired to join the challenge at Crafting from the Heart where anything goes.

There are lovely new releases today at Digistmps4joy. I chose to use the cute Sign Board, which includes three sentiments: Let's Celebrates, Happy Birthday, and Happy New Year.

The Sign Board image was colored using Copic Markers, a gold Recollections pen and two Gelly roll metallic pens. The colored image was placed in the Craft Artist two program, where I placed the sentiment on the board and merged the board with a background from the Happy Birthday digikit.

Take a look at all the other lovely images. I'm sure you will find one to use and enter our current challenge.

There i a new challenge and a new year at World Wide Open Design Team challenge. For this month's Julia Spiri card, I chose Little Carmen. I loved working on her so much, that I made two cards with this image!

I colored Little Carmen using Copic Markers. For the first card, she was cut out leaving a narrow white edge and placed on soft pads to create a 3D illusion. I layered two pieces of card stock and placed them on a black car. I adhered Carmen to the top and embellished the corners with gems.

For the second card, I placed Carmen in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged her with elements from the Mediterranean Market digikit. I printed the image in the scene and then printed the image without the scene. I cut the second image out and put soft pads on the back. I created a 3D scene when she was placed on top. I matted the scene on green card stock and adhered it to a blank card.

I'm looking forward to seeing your entries into the World Wide Open Design Team challenge.

Love is in the Air Card

As soon as I saw this image I had to have it, for my birthday gift from Cute as a Button Stamps!

I colored the cutie with Copic Markers and placed it in the Craft Artist 2 program. The colored image was merged with the sky digital from Scrapper's Delights. I printed it twice, once with the entire scene and once with the little girl with out the sky. I cut out the second print.

I embellished the cut image with Stickles Glitter Glue and enhanced the hearts with Glossy Accents.

The cut image was placed on soft pads and adhered to the top of the full scene, giving it a 3D illusion. The composition was glued to printed card stock and then to a basic white card. Four tiny pearls were added to the upper right side corner.

Thanks for the digi, Cute as a Button, she was a blast to work on!
