DICC #46: An Itinerary of "F's"

Hello! Can you believe it's already mid-January?! My baby girl turned 4 an entire month ago! Well, since it's the 15th, that means it's time for a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. This time, we are sponsored by Floppy LatteAnd here's our itinerary, created by Jenn.


    1. Fish or Fins

    2. Feathers

    3. Fur

    4. Frogs

    5. Fancy Text

    6. Flight

    7. Four colors

    8. Flowers

    9. Fairies

    10. Fabric

And here is what I created with my image from Floppy Latte. I used numbers 2, 5, 7, and 8.

I colored this image very differently from how I typically color. I kept it all flat, but with kind of a stained glass feel. I don't often gravitate towards floral images, but this one just grabbed me. I really like it.

I used Copics to color the image. The sentiment is from Inkadnkado. The feather was once a butterfly that my dog destroyed. I thought the feathers were so pretty, I didn't have the heart to throw them out. I knew I would use them for something. 

I hope you will join us at DICC! Remember, you must use at least 3 of the items n the itinerary. And be sure to mention which ones they are when you link up. Please visit the DICC blog to see what the rest of the team has created. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

It really does look like stained glass. I do like this very much.

February Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge

The new Smeared & Smudged challenges are up and ready for you to participate in! I got instantly inspired by Kelli’s card sketch for the month, as I have been working with different ideas for my next “Tarot Card.” Haha! That’s actually pretty funny! If you’ve been checking in over the past couple of weeks, you may have seen my Misty Benson Tarot Set 1 ( Smeared Ink ) cards. I’ve used The World and The Fool so far. Today, I bring you Death. Don’t worry…it’s actually a joyful image…one that I intend to use a lot! First, here’s the sketch. I flipped it and changed the ribbon and embellishment a bit. Can I just start off by saying that it is quite nerve wracking to slice your image??? I have done it a few times in the past, but I always get butterflies when I attempt it again. I colored the image and the card itself using nothing but Distress Inks and my Cut-n-Dry Nibs. My skull button at the top has been colored with Alcohol Inks.   The colors look a little off to m

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
