Make it Crafty Challenge - Dew Drops

Hi everyone!  Here is an image I colored with Copics for a Make it Crafty challenge.  The challenge was to color dew drops.  You could choose which level of difficulty you wanted to use.  I chose hard.  There is a tutorial if you would like to see it, here.

I like to try challenges that push me to try something new.  I was a couple days late but wanted to share it anyway. Do you feel inspired to push yourself?
Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,

Candyland Christmas in July

Hi everyone!  Today I have a SWEET card to share with you.  I used PK-1329 Sweet Home from the newest Christmas in July stamp release.  I used bright fun colors to color the house.  I was going for a storybook, candyland type of look.
After coloring the house with copics I cut the image out.  I used an exacto knife to cut the windows and door so that it could open.  I cut some images from a 6x6 paper pad called Countdown to Christmas by Melissa Frances, and placed them behind the windows and the door.  Santa is putting presents under the Christmas tree, behind the door.

To finish my scene I cut Christmas trees from some patterned paper, punched the snowman and snowflakes, punched the orange "tree skirts" and cut the orange path.  The snowy rooftop was made with some puffy paint and glitter.

By combining stamped images with pre-printed images you can create some fun scenes.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Don't forget to check out the Peachy Keen Store for some great bargains.  A new sale starts every Tuesday for the entire month of July!  Get your shop on!
