Busy Busy again...

this shot shows the sakura gelly roll pen on the centers of the flowers...
This was done for Ethel's sketch challenge in the stamp shack this week.
This is an American Art stamps stick chick image that was Rak'ed to me as a wish from Susan ( Peebsmama) and i colored her with Stampin up Markers. The sentiment is also from Susan, and i do not have the in colors in inks, ( just cardstock) so i used a make-up triangle sponge to daub some Fresco Sistine Sky and Mediterranean Tide Chalk finish ink onto it before it was matted with the Not Quite Navy cardstock ( its up on popdots) the Antique gold clips are from MM and have some May Arts ribbons on them. this card is 5 1/2 inches Square.
This one i did for the first color combo challenge in the stamp shack a week ago i guess? the colors are Black, copper, gold and a little dark green. ( these are the colors in Baileys Irish Creme by the way ) lol the background underneath the giraffe panel was done with an wad of cling wrap pressed into an really rust dye ink pad then daubed on the cream cardstock. for an textured background.
This was the first card i had put together for the color combo challenge, and i had tweaked it to fit the sketch challenge Ethel was working on, and then colors went in the week before the sketch but, so far no one has noticed. I was kind of holding my breath over that one, to not spoil the anticipation for them ( the challenges) We have stalkers threads! ( which is a fun thing) the Leaf Doodle flower is from Hero Arts, and thepressed and dried fern is from my old yard, ( I really am going to shoot photos of the flower storage and the press i found recently at a yard sale, but I am missing a piece to attach the light bar to the tri-pod.)
Now this one is a sneak peak at a project that will have step by step photos in the basic stamping for the 9 am chat in the sunroom on National Card day.
