Cloud Coloring Mini Challenge Entry

Hello Again!
This is another entry for different mini challenge over at Some Odd Girl! This challenge was all about making some " Copic Clouds " and it was fun trying this out for the first time. They even have an great  tutorial showing you an easy way to start practicing your own cloud ( totally worth checking out).

I outlined my clouds with Copic Multi liner 0.5  to create a whimsical affect.

Rock Royality!

Hey Bloggy friends!
Hope your all having a great weekend and enjoying Facebook Fun Day over at Some Odd Girl. If your crazy enough not to be playing along with them, then your missing out ( hehe). Because I'm having so much fun playing along with there mini challenges! I hope you guys enjoy this card I put together for the " Non Traditional Hair Challenge".
I choose one of my favorite Oddies " Royal " for this card but who am I kidding there all my favorite! The banners behind the sentiment were also stamped from another Some Odd Girl set which I actually rolled the ( mini banners) to create a ribbon like affect. I paper pieced royals dress from a 6x6 paper pad from My Minds Eye. I stamped,embossed and die cut the chandelier from a Hero Arts/Sizzix framelits set.
I really love how Royals funky hair came out! I wanted add just touches of green in her hair for a more " Rock Royality" type of look as I call it, hopefully this will inspire you not to be afraid to play with some color.
(Checkout my Youtube channel to watch me color "Royal" and for the list of Copic's used)
Thanks so much for Stopping by!

You Light Up my Life

Hey Bloggy friends!
Sandra here, bringing you another fun card to tickle your fancy. I created this card for the sparks challenge over at Paper Smooches ( I just love all there fun sets). For this card I really wanted to play with the dimensions and make it as playful as the set I used called "Smoocheroos". I stamped my main images with some Momento ink and colored the images in with my Copic sketch markers. I distressed my papers with " Tumbled glass" distress ink, all the papers used for this card are from Basic Grey.

I added some twine from My Mind's Eye "Funday" collection.

Thanks for stopping by!
