Gerda Steiner Designs Coffee Girl Challenge Card

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for Gerda Steiner Designs Challenge Card.  Gerda Steiner Designs has Progressive challenge every month where you purchase the image of the month and participate in her challenge, then next month she’ll send you the following months image for free.  This is an excellent way to collect your digital stamp collection.  As long as you participate in the challenge every months, you’ll get an image FREE.  I think this is Fabulous and she has the most cutest critters ever, I really enjoy working with them.

This months image is this Coffee Girl image and I didn’t have a chance to make a video tutorial for this this month but I’ll share with you what I made.  I normally always make a tutorial for these but I didn’t have time this month since the month is almost over.

I printed her out onto some Neenah Solar White 80lb paper and I colored her using my Prismacolor Pencils.  I didn’t use the gambol this time, which is a solvent for blending the color pencils.  I cut her out and added some polka dots on her apron and added highlights to the coffee and the heart on the cup.  I used this Polka dot paper from my stash which went perfectly with the color scheme and added some hills using another pink card stock.  I attached the polka dot paper onto another really light yellow design paper using some foam adhesive.  I cut little flags out of a Gold card stock and added it to the side to give more interest.  I also stamped out the sentiment and back it with the gold card stock.  I added some Gold iridescent sequins to finish the card off and added some glossy accents to the cup.

I really hope you like this card and join us for this Challenge at Gerda Steiner Designs.  I’ll leave all the links below if you want to check that out.  She also has Clear stamps available on her site so go ahead and check those out as well.

How to color using Crayola pencils and OMS on a book page

This video doesn’t exist

I just wanted to share my New and improved video quality with you guys.  It was really frustrating that every time I upload a video it came out blurry.  Even I got annoyed watching my own video.  Thank you so much for your patience.  i finally figured out that my conversion was not in HD.  Once i figured that out and reconvert it to HD, videos became much more clear.  So I’m sharing my new and improved video today.  This is a coloring tutorial with Crayola colored pencils and OMS (odorless mineral spritz) on a old book page using Penny Black stamp (Blooming Garden).  There’s a lot of remarkable colored pencils out there and I have a quite a bit of them myself but they can get very pricey.  So when I found out that you can use OMS to blend any colored pencils, I tried it out with my daughters Crayola colored pencils.  I love to color and draw on and old book page for a truly distressed look so I decided to stamp out Penny Black blooming garden and color .  I think the results are amazing.  I didn’t come up with this whole idea but whoever came up with it  is very cleaver.  So try it out if you haven’t already…
