Chef Ariel: Jude and the Rockers Just For Fun!

Greetings! It's time for a new collection from Simply B Stamps! You know the drill, we are going to preview one new image every day this week, and then on Friday, we will have a fun Blog Hop to celebrate this new release! This collection is from the Jude and the Rockers series, and it's called Just for Fun. You are going to love these images! Today, we are sharing Chef Ariel with you.

I always love to color in the images of Ariel. I think it's all about those cool glasses for me! I asked Phoenix for a little advice when it came to coloring the cake. I really didn't want to do white. So He told me his color choices, and I went with them! Doesn't it look yummy?

I used some super cheery and sorbet-colored papers from K and Co. Plus a border punch (that I used on both sides of my border) from EK Success.

Here's a close up of Ariel's glasses. I always color the face an eyes as I normally would, but then I go over the specs with a pale blue. Just to give a bit of a wash of color. Then, I added a few lines of white, to give it some "shine."

Now it's time for you to head over to the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team is up to. And be sure to check back tomorrow, for another cute and quirky preview! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
