Dilly Beans Challenge: Fall

My favorite season is certainly Fall. The colors, the smells, the anticipation of the upcoming holidays. Spring is beautiful, and I love the heat of summer (not really a fan of winter)...but the fall is full of magic. So I was very happy when I found out the the new Dilly Beans challenge for this week was simply "Fall." What a wonderful challenge, right? Here's what I made, using "Emily Framed."


I am so in love with Megan's framed images. This is one of many that are in one. And I find that taking these images and making a card with them is such a simple and quick process, because of that frame.


Isn't Emily pretty? I loved coloring her eye, and her beautiful hair, of course! She was colored with watercolor markers and Copics. Incidentally, my deep orange watercolor marker is rather juicy...and I cut the image out before it dried. Well, some orange got on my finger and I touched some of my tri-colored background! There was no way to hide/fix it...so I went with it. Smudging my orange fingerprint here and there to make it look as though it was done on purpose. But you won't share my dirty little secret, will you? ;)


What do you think of my leaves? Aren't they cool? I love anything that's holographic...since I was a kid. So when I found these in my stash, I was very excited. It was hard not to use the whole package, but I thought simplicity was key for this card. My sentiment is from Technique Tuesday.
So won't you play along with the Dilly Beans gals? We would love to see what you come up with for this Fall challenge! Head over to the Challenge Blog for all the details, and to see what the rest of the DT created. And then, visit the shop to snag some of the beautiful framed images from Dilly Beans. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Alison, this is just gorgeous. Your coloring is so pretty and I agree with you, those framed images make it so easy to put together a quick and beautiful card! :)
That image is too cute with her peeking through her bangs and the way you placed it at the bottom of the card. Brilliant

BTW I love holographic too

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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
