Spots And Dots With Incy Wincy Designs

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed your Holiday weekend and all stayed safe with the fireworks! My brother-in-law put on quite a show for us! Always a good time with my husband's brothers. 

To start off the new week we have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The theme is Spots and Dots- easy enough, right. And our sponsor is the hilarious Dr. Digi. 





I love polka dots so this was a fun challenge for me. I chose the image X-ray Raymond for my card. I used the Silhouette Design studio to print the image and the feel better sentiment. 


I colored him with my Spectrum Noir markers and just made a very simple background with some polka dot paper matted on plain black cardstock.

Inky Pinkies- Joyful Serenity Fairy

Hello there, time for my newest Inky Pinkies project. I really enjoyed making this one. A lot of people are coloring these fairies in beautiful pastel colors (remember mine from last week?). I decided I wanted to do something different and colored this one with darker colors. Blacks, greys and a deep purple. I just love how she turned out. 


This one is called Serenity Joyful Fairy. I colored her with my Spectrum Noir Markers (Pin-able Palette below) and used my kids' watercolor paints for the background. They thought it was funny that I was borrowing their art supplies for a change. 


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added some metallic paint to the edges. We were given some of it at the Kit and Clowder retreat- it's a really fun paint to use. I love how it breaks up the darkness of the purple flowers and adds a little shine to the white one. 


The ribbon is old Stampin Up from my stash and the washi tape came in one of the Studio Calico Project Life kits. I think it's my favorite washi tape ever. It's just so pretty!

Who has fireworks ready for tonight?  We do! Well, my brother-in-law does, we just watch from a a safe distance. 


Speaking of fireworks, my make for the new Scrapper's Delight Challenge has some fireworks too! I made a 3x4 filler card to go in out Project Life album. 



I used the image Manga Beach 8 and colored her up in some Red, White and Blue. Then I doodled some fireworks in the background. The silver glittered ones were made with some silver Stickles. 

I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers, and the colors are below.
