Mahvelous May at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 4

This week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, we will be using Majestic Violet, Dynamo Pink and Pineapple Soda Yellow. This week Mahvelous May is "add flowers".

I made the above card for my best friend Doris. We have been friends since we were teenagers. We met at the church we both used to attend in Québec. The first time I saw Doris, I thought she was 30 years old; actually, she was only 16. Life had not been so easy for her and she matured much earlier than she should have. She likes to remind me that I am the one who corrupted her by introducing her to rock music and getting funky haircuts and hair colors. LOL!! She is a wonderful person and a loving mother to her two grown-up kids. I am happy I met her and although I don't tell her that; she really helped me ground myself and start taking life more seriously. Two opposites with positive influence on each other.

... brings May Flowers Challenge at GI

Brenda, a fellow DT member, is hosting a new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability starting today. The challenge is to use the color combination below and add flowers (e.g. Primas).



I used one of my new digis called Leah Watering her Flowers. I had a great time coloring her and got to use so many of my Copics. I made my own roses and also made the fancy pin. I really like this color combo; it is soft and so feminine. I will surely use it again soon.

I hope you will join us in the Brings May Flowers  Challenge at Guylou's Inimitability. The winner will be awarded two digistamps of her or his choice from the Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.

The challenge runs until June 2nd at 10pm. Please take a moment and go see what the other DT members and our Guest Designer, Mandy, did for this challenge. What talented artists!!

Mahvelous May at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 3


This week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, we will be using DenimWhite and Copper. This week Mahvelous May is "add stitching".

I made the above card for my dad for Father's Day. I hope he is not following my blog or it won't be a surprise!! I created the image for the card and tried to make it look like a timeless photograph which can be used as an old photo or one taken yesterday. The image is called Ryan and Fluff. I created the brick effect using my Copic Colorless Blender. I sowed the pocket with my sowing machine and added some copper pearls to dress up the card. The cute little ceramic Boxer Dog in the photo is a gift from my dad when I was very young. It has seen better days, but I just can't part with him. :)  Precious memories!

No digi included

Baby Dedication Card

I got two card orders last week and I decided to try making them without a stamp or digistamp. That's a challenge for me as I love to color images and use them for my cards. I just wanted to see if I could come up with something interesting. I did cheat on the second card and added an image in the inside of the card... just couldn't resist. I am happy with the results.

Mahvelous May at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 2


This week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, we will be using Teal, Red and Golden Yellow. This week Mahvelous May is "add a tag".

I made the above card for my friend Bren and her family when her husband lost his mother. I used a rubber stamp called Morning Glory by Personal Stamp Exchange. Morning Glory is a common name for over 1,000 species of flowering plants in the family Convolvulaceae. I have one in my garden and it blooms in the color purple. The tag is hidden behind the image and contains a small prayer of encouragement.

Mahvelous May at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 1


This week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, we will be using Orange, Black or Brown. Our theme for this month is Mahvelous May. This week Mahvelous May is "include twine".

Please use this image for inspiration
This month sponsor for the Tuesday Color Challenge is Digis With Attitude. They are offering a $10 gift certificate to our monthly winner. Please take a moment to check their store and discover their wonderful images.


I made the above card using a digistamp called Tabatha & Tony which was provided to us by Digis With Attitude. I had such a great time coloring this image. I made a paper lace using my Cricut to dress up the card and since I did not have twine, I used embroidery thread.

 

I hope you will join us this week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. I am looking forward to see what you will do with this colour combination.
