Snowman with Squirrel

Hello!  It's Crafting Vicky here with you today I'm here to share with you a second page from my calendar project my youngest son's teacher.  He gave it to her yesterday... I have yet to find out if she liked it... Hope she did!  I'm always a bit scared giving homemade gifts even if they take forever to make!

Anyway,  there were some great images from RSD to use for it.  So the 2nd make that I'm sharing is for the month of January 2015 using a fab image from the zibbet store called Snowman with Squirrel.  I thought it was perfect for the cold month of January!!!  Perfect time to make snowman :)

It was so fun to color.  I followed the instructions from an animal coloring class that I took to make the little squirrel.  Pretty happy with the result

And here's a closer look at the image colored with my copics. I think the squirrel is looking quite fluffy :)  Sure helps that RSD images are so easy to color!

I hope you have liked my inspiration for you!!!  Check out all the other fabulous images in the Zibbet store or in the Etsy store!

Have a fabulous Thursday!!!!

Progressive Challenge final part with Christmas Party Hat

Hello again. We're back with the second installment of part 2 of the Progressive Challenge. If you missed the first part, please feel free to go look here.
Today Team B bring to you their renditions of this beautiful image called Christmas Party Hat. She's available to purchase if you didn't manage to enter part one and get her free. You never know - it could be you winning and be able to get more images from the store. Zibbet has the largest choice, Etsy has an instant download function. Both stores have their good points.

Did you see the previous post? Lots of news there about all the goings-on in the world of Rick St Dennis and his amazing art. Please scroll down and read.

Airless Chambers are still hoisting the banner for the Creepmas celebrations if you share a slightly less than traditional view on the holiday period. It's all good fun, what ever way it's looked at. I know everyone participating is having a blast.

Anyway - on with the show...... with Team B and their beautiful pieces of art.

Fallen Angel

Hi Fiona R here today with a Dark project using Rick's Creepmas Angel Dark Lady  available in his Zibbet Store. I coloured her up with copics going for the warm Grey family. Fussy cut her and put to one side. I used an 8x8 card blank and matted the skull background paper onto black cardstock then attached to the card base. I then die cut a frame using a spellbinders die from black cardstock. I created the text in photoshop, printed onto white card, cut and attached to the black frame with 3d foam to raise a little. The frame was the attached to the card. Dark angel was then attached to the card with 3d foam to make her pop. I then created an insert for inside the card in photoshop, printed, cut ad attached to the inside of the card. Quite pleased how this one turned out.

Inspirational from Rachel with Morning goddess Francie

Hello everyone, it is my turn to show you something pretty today, and it is another christmas card from me.. i'm so enjoying working my way through the Rick St Dennis christmassy images this year- even though i'm not a christmas fan usually, I am having a lot of fun!
The image I have chosen for this post is 'Morning Goddess Francie - Holiday Morning'

I coloured this card up using my usual mixture of copics and promarkers- one of these days I will hopefully have enough copics to not have to swap and change, but until then you get a hybrid when I need certain colours!

Copics used- E000,E00,E21,E11,E04,N2,N4,N6 R08, G99,G94,G21
E18,E15, E13

Promarkers used- Burgundy, cardinal, Crimson

The papers are from a long while back in my stash, and I have also used red cardstock and some large green gems.
the smaller matts and layers i hand cut into pennant shapes, and around the shorter one i have wrapped some silvery ribbon, then added a hand tied bow in the same ribbon on top. the image is popped up with some silicone glue dots .

I decided to decorate the inside of the card with the rest of the red striped paper sheet, and stamped 'merry christmas' onto it using one of my favourite bo bunny sentiment stamps- it must really be my favourite as i lost this stamp from my set and had to buy a new set to replace it :(

I think Francie makes a wonderful christmas card and i love the look on her little cat's face!

to see my other creations please do pop over and see me at my blog 

have a good day everyone!
