Gettin’ Punky With It…

I am participating in my very first Club Anya and Friends Challenge! There was just NO WAY I could pass this one up! It’s all about “Gettin’ Punky!” No, not Punky Brewster. Like real punk. Think CBGB, Rancid, London, Anarchy…get the picture? Check out my rockin’ card!


I really love how this turned out. I worked my tail off on this one, and it turned out just how I wanted. I lamented over the paper for so long…ask my husband (who by the way, was totally helpful! Thanks, Babe!). I colored in Miss Ebony fairly quickly… but the paper…oh the paper! It was tough. I knew what I wanted (kind of) but couldn’t find it. Then, it all came together!

Now, it was suggested we add metal embellishments. Perfect! I knew I needed to do that anyway. I added jump rings to my eyelets, and take a close look at Ebony to see where I added them to her!


Please click on the pics for a better look. It’s tough to see what I did with a small photo. I gave her earrings! I really wanted to give her like, 4 or 5 up one side… but her ears don’t show! So that was out. But I LOVE how she looks with those cool silver hoops! I also gave her a teeny bit of glitz on her eyes. Not too much though… punks are so NOT about the glitter!


You can see I threw on a couple of staples, and of course I just HAD to put the Anarchy symbol on here as well! I thought about distressing the card a bit, but I decided that was no the “punk way”. We’re not doin’ grunge here!


You can see here that I cut one of the skulls out of this sick Basic Grey paper (BG! I know! It’s crazy!), and pop dotted it. With the other skull, I cut around the top of it so that I could place my skull and crossbones paper (Rusty Pickle) under it. I didn’t want to lose them under the other paper… they just had to show! They were one of the reasons I chose this paper, so that’s how I remedied that problem.

So, what do YOU think? Is it punk enough? What do you think of Ebony’s hair? I love it, and I’m thinkin’ I just may need to put green in my hair again! It has been such a looong time! And this blonde I am currently sportin’ (since the teal has rinsed away) needs to GO! But I digress… enjoy the card, and have an inspiring day!

This is wicked cool, Ali! But it's missing one thing. You should've drawn tats on her arm!!!! Love the earrings. That was a cool idea!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
