Wow, Scrapper's Delights has Steampunk images for sale!
 I used Steampunk-Boot-1 for a card I made as part of the Design Team. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and some metallic Gelly Roll pens.

I placed this image in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged it with elements from the Steampunk Adventures digikit .  The scene was printed twice and the boots were cut from one and placed on top of the printed scene with soft pads to form a 3D image.
Here's something to help you do a bit of shopping:

Steampunk New Release Saturday Blog Hop

Chastity Steampunk 2
Scrapper's Delights Store
Welcome to the first day of the Scrapper's Delights Steampunk New Release Blog Hop!! Wow it's here, Scrapper's Delights has Steampunk images for sale beginning today! I used Chastity-Steampunk-2 for a card I made as part of the Design Team. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and some metallic Gelly Roll pens.

 Chastity was also placed in the Craft artist 2 program, but she was merged with a photo creation by Sandy Brooke. The background was from a photo taken at Washington Oaks State Park in Palm Coast, Florida. The scene was printed twice and the girl was cut from one and placed on top of the printed scene with soft pads to form a 3D image.

Here's a bit about the blog hop. Please comment on each blog on either Saturday or Sunday. A random winner will be chosen from each and will get to select 4 single digi stamps. You will need to link your blog at the Scrapper's Delights Linky to be eligible to win.

Little Flower Fairy

Ever since this image became available for free from All Dressed Up, I have been wanting to color it. I finally got around to it today. I needed to practice using these remarkable Copic Markers. I'm really pleased with how well I did, considering I don't use these markers very often.
Little Flower Fairy is mounted on several layers of card stock and embellished with a flower made from prefab pieces and some adhesive pearls.
I had fun coloring her and I am entering a few challenges just to show off how well I did!

Skater Sassy



Sassy Studio
Sassy Studio is currently sponsoring Crafting from the Heart. I chose to use Skater Sassy for my Design Team inspirational card.

Skater is colored using Copic Markers and then placed in the Craft Artist 2 program, where it was merged with a background created by my husband Sandy Brooke. Skater is standing on A1A in front of Sally's Ice Cream, in Flagler Beach, Florida!

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

Beach Sweet Hearts

Beach Sweet hearts
Scrapper's Delights Shop
It's time for my Scrapper's Delights Mid Inspirational Design Team card. It's almost Summer here in Florida, it kind of seems to be skipping Spring and I'm not at all sure, if we even had a winter! So in honor of Summer 2016, here are the Beach Sweet Hearts, a Scrapper's Delights image. The lovely blue cloudy sky is another Scrapper's Delights product...Natures Little Wonders Paper Pack.

The cute couple on the bench was colored using Faber-Castell Polychromos. The colored image and the sky paper were placed in the Craft Artist 2 program and merged with other background pieces from the Craft Scapes Summer Seaside digikit and along with some text.

The scene was printed twice. I cut the Beach Sweet Hearts colored image out and used soft pads to adhere it to the top of the scene.

I'm looking forward to seeing some new challenge entries at Scrapper's Delights.

Back to School

The current challenge at A Snowflakes Promise is sponsored by Joanna Sheen. Since the theme is anything goes, I am getting in some practice with the "Copic Coloring Guide." Here's a sweet boy with his backpack ready to start the new school year. It kind of reminds me of my grandson. His family has recently moved and he will be starting a new school in the fall.

This cutie was color using Copic Markers and I design the plaid shirt, following the guide. For the rest of the color check my list below"
Hair - E21, E23, E25
Skin - E30, E21
Shirt - B24, B34, YG13
Pants -  B24, B37
Shoes - B41
Edge of Shoes - C7
Book - RV29, RV69
Pages - Y21
Backpck - YG67

The boy was cut out leaving a narrow white edge and then layered over several sheet of scrapbook card stock.

The background of this card is made up of various pieces from the "An ABC Primer" stack from Graphic 45.

Check out the challenge at A Snowflakes Promise where the current theme is anything goes.
