Triple Threat!

Hello out there! Today, I have 3 projects to share with you! That's right...3! It's a crafting trifecta! The 2nd Step in the Dark Challenge, new Wicked Wednesday, and a new Color Challenge with Bombshell Stamps. The Step in the Dark challenge is to "Use Purple" or Anything Goes. Here's my piece.

This is an ATC using Lilli Faye from Make it Crafty. Lotsa purple here!

The swirls on my background paper is pearly. And I used lots of Ice Stickles to give this faye some much needed sparkle.

The new Wicked Wednesday Challenge is "Foxy", and we are sponsored by Sami Stamps. I LOVE the image I was given to work with!

Coloring this image was a lot of fun. I used alcohol markers, as I did on Lilli above. Aren't those foxes adorable? More with the glitter...this time, super chunky and green. I'm entering this Foxy ATC in the Sami Stamps "Anything Goes" challenge.

I love color challenges. That's why I was so excited to start doing them with the Bombshell girls. 

As always, my color palette is from Design Seeds. I thought this would be a great color scheme for a man's card, so here's what I created.

I used Bombshell Angel, Biker Bombshell (dress-up clothes), and Vintage Motorcycle. These images were also colored with alcohol inks. I loved the brown background paper for this piece because it reminded me of tooled leather....something you may find on the seat of a vintage motorcycle. 

Making this card makes me really wanna go for a ride with my husband!

So you have lots of fun challenges that you can play along with! I hope that you do. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
