Bombshell Muse Monday and Raise the Bar

Greetings! It's Monday, which makes me sad...as I really wish my boys were home with Rhiannon and I. But, girl time is always a good thing too! Today I have 2 projects to share with you. The first is Bombshell Stamps' Muse Monday project. The second is for Raise the Bar, which Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring. As a new member of his EDT, I really wanted to play along.
So let's start with Muse Monday. Each month, I choose a Bombshell Stamps set that I want the Design Team to feature. Each Monday, different DT members share a project making that set. It's really cool to see so many different ways to use one set! This month, I chose King of the Road.

I asked Gene what colors I should use for this hot rod. What do you think of his choices? I liked them.

I used watercolor markers to color in the images, and I watercolor painted the background. Remember, each Monday the Bombshell Gals will be showing different projects with this cool set.
As I mentioned above, Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring the latest Raise the Bar challenge. So, I wanted to join in. I used Winter Bonnet for my card.

When I first saw this image, I immediately thought of my Mother in Law. She looked very much like this woman, and I could see her wearing this regal hat if she had somewhere fantastic to go to.

She loved these colors. I colored the image with watercolor markers and alcohol markers. What's really cool, is that my husband said she looks like her. That made me really happy.

The banner is from Bombshell. I hope you will play along with Raise the Bar. You have the chance at winning digis from Rick! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Beatiful coloring on both cards. I love the crown with the hot rod and the rose backdrop on the second card.

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

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 "
