AD4D Challenge #126

 
I decided to enter a challenge for a change.  I've had this image for quite sometime (1/2 colored)
 
and it always remained me of a set of tin ware cups we had hanging in our kitchen.
 
This is an image I purchased when I was a member of A Day For Daisies.
 
 
 
I colored the image with Copics, handmade my flowers and added cobalt rhinestones.
 
I added a ribbon between the image and the "newsprint" (which is what the challenge was).
 
I had fun adding all the white dots on the "tin" cup.
 
Challenge I am entering:

#42 ANYTHING BUT SQUARE 14 Jul

I love Ike's "Geranium Basket" !!  I can be used for so many occasions.   Thinking of you, Miss you, Get well, Happy Birthday and I'm sure you can think of many more.  I left off the sentiment since I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet. 
 
 
 



I dyed a paper doily from the "Dollar Store" and used Copics to color.
 
I used 2 shades of pink for the geraniums, a yellow and 2 shades of brown for the basket and 3 shades of green for the leaves.
 
I really do think everyone should have this in their stash so they can take their time or color in a rush to get it to the post.  Something always comes up that's been forgotten.  :-}


See you over at IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE
Where IKE will give you a freebie to use -So everyone can share!
 You could be the winner of free digi stamps.

My Doctor Card

 
An "IKE" work for my Doctor.
 
I've been with my Dr (and his nurse wife) for over 20 years.  He saw me when I was healthy and walking and work through to when I bounced off the walls (literally) to make it to an exam room.  We've been through a lot together.  So in order to thank him and his staff I created this.
Such knowledgeable and caring health care providers are a blessing.
 
 
 
The "extras" are Jolee stickers.


Father's Day 2015

I had all my cards ready to when 2 people told me that Father's Day wasn't for 2 weeks.  Well...it was in a week so I didn't get these out this year but I'll be ready come next year.  :-}

Little did they know they did me a favor....LOL and no one complained about not getting a card.
 
These are the cards I made:
 
 
For my Brother-in-Law that loves to travel.

 For my Brother-in-Law that's a star in our lives.
For the man that takes his grandson fishing.
 
I hope this gives you some ideas for next year.

Happy Mother's Day My Rose

 
When my daughter was a little bit younger she look just like Kate Winslet's
Rose from Titanic.  So mush so she was offered a position at the
permanent display in Orlando.  Our favorite outfit was the one "Rose" wore when "Jack" first saw her.  Those were the colors I used for the card.  This is a line art from ADFD.
 


I hope you love her as much as we do.
 
 
 
 
 

Happy 1st Mother's Day

 
Elijah's Mom is having her 1st Mother's Day

When you take the card out of the envelope it "Pops Up" at you.

Happy Mother's Day

 
I made this card for a very special person's birthday.
 
I used a good old fashion red rubber stamp for this colored it with Copic markers.

I hope she likes it with as much love as I put into it.

Ike's Challenge #36 No Patterned Papers

I used Ike’s beautiful "Snowdrops" to create this card.  They are one of the first flowers to bloom in Spring which I miss.  They often come up through the snow and are perfect to place in a flower bed right outside one of the doors you use most.
 
Since the challenge was no patterned papers I decided to showcase the artwork with "Cuttelbug's" Denise's Frame embosser.  I think it does a beautiful job of drawing your eye to the art.
The art was colored with Copic's in shades of warm grey, and various greens.
This would make a good Easter or Mother's Day card.

Please join us and bring your wonderful artwork out of your mind and into the world.

Ike's Challenge #35 "Things with Wing's"


This was the art of Ike that I chose to use for this challenge.
Set of 4 Shoes
 
I used Darice's Stage with Curtain Embossing folder.  The background was masked and colored with a sponge using "Tim Holtz" Broken China distress ink.  The beautiful wing shoe was painted with (a very difficult to film) Crystal Sparkle by Scribbles.  I used Copics to color the area where the wing attached to the shoe.
I'll be using this for a Mother's Day card.
