Make It Crafty’s FB Coloring Challenge




Aloha Guys!

Happy Weekend:)  Normally, I don’t really do crafting and posting on Weekends because I’m spending time with my Kiddos but I’ve been coloring this image since Friday, for the Make it Crafty FB Coloring Challenge and I wanted to finish her up.  Make it Crafty is Celebrating their 4000 Likes and she’s having all kinds of contests going on and there are Lots of prizes to be won.  I wanted to color this Fairy for the Contest and this image is called Fairy-toe-Kiss and I’ll put a link below if you’d like to check it out. It took me over 2 hrs to color her and I tried my best to record the coloring and because it took so long, my Camera battery died on me, lol.  I did record parts of it that you can check out on my Youtube Chanel, if you’d like.

I had so much fun coloring her and I’m sure I’ll be coloring her again!!  After coloring this, I cut it out using my Lawn Fawn Large Stitch Rectangle die which covers the whole A2 size Card front.  I’ve combined several of their Challeges which are, Coloring Wild hair color(not what you normally color hair with), One-Layered Card, CAS Card, and Make the Wings Transparent.

I attached her to my card front and stamped out a simple sentiment and added some sequins.  For her wings, I added clear wink of stella and put glossy accents on it to make it shiny. I also added my Signo white gel pen to put highlights on her hair and dress.  That’s just basically it.  Clean and Simple.  I had so much fun coloring her and I’ve already entered her onto the contests that’s going on the FB.  There’s still time to participate in this fun, go ahead and check out Make it Crafty’s FB Site.  Thank you so much and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  I thank you so much for visiting and Much Mahalo:)

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Make It Crafty’s Clean and Simple DT Call.  If you’ve been following me on Instagram and Facebook, you’ve seen that I’ve been obsessed with Make it Crafty’s images.  I colored the Characters when I did a Product focus on the Spectrum Noirs and I love coloring the Flower set that has the Beautiful Rose.  I love coloring and I’m in love with MIC’s images, I want to buy them all, lol

For my card today, I’m using their Newest Release of Spring Flower set.  I fell in love with the Cherry Blossom as soon as I saw them and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them.  If you purchase the set which includes 4 flowers, you automatically get 15% off which is super good deal.  That’s what I bought, but you can definitely purchase them individually.

I printed the Cherry Blossom out on Strathmore 80lb. watercolor paper and cut the image out of Mama Elephant’s Femme Frame die.  I also cut a black Bazzil card using the same die but I used the Scallop one.  My card base today is Neenah Desert Storm 100lb.  I printed several of these flowers and I colored them using Tim Holtz Distress markers using a Stampin up blender pen.  You can use any blender pen you have, you can even use a water brush ins tread.  In my opinion, the blender pen gives more control and this is perfect since the background is going to be very loose.  After coloring some of the Cherry blossom and I fussy cut them out to give more dimension to my front panel.

For my background, I used the Cracked Pistachio and Peacock feathers and made a very loose background for my Flowers.  I also put Picked Raspberry on all the flowers with lots of water so it’ll kind of ooze out and blend with the background I created.  I rally love this loose watercoloring!  For the sentiment, I used a stampin up’s stamp set and I embossed it using Versafine Onxy pigment ink with clear embossing powder.  These Flowers DO Come with Sentiments so you can use those if yo like.

I attached everything together and added some Pretty Pink Posh Clear sequins in different sizes.  I also put some clear Wink of stella and put Glossy accents on the popped up Cherry Blossoms.  This finishes my card for today and I hope you enjoyed.  All the supplies I used in this card will be located below, for your convenience.  I’m Crossing My Fingers!!!  I would LOVE to be one of their DT members!!!  This will be such a great experience and if I don’t get Chosen, that’s Ok too.  I’ll still be enjoying her images:)  Thank you so much and Much Mahalo!
