TADA! It's Freebie Friday

There's a new Freebie Friday image over at Scrapper's Delights this week. It's a super fun image called Tada Frog. 

I thought he would make a fun birthday card. I printed him really big and kind of chopped his bottom off. I actually did a little bit of decoupage on him too. 

I kept the rest of the card simple so the frog would really stand out. I love the cloud background I created on this.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers DG3 CG4 CG2 CG1 LG1 BT1 IG10 IG8 IG6 OR3 OR2 OR1 CR3 CR1

Scrapper's Delights Spotlight Freebie

Today Scrapper's Delights is being featured at Markers! Papers! Digis!

Janice is giving away a really cute mermaid image over in their group today. 

I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and Sparkle Pens and made a shaker card with her. 

Since this is for the Scrapper's Delights Spotlight I decided to "spotlight" the mermaid by making her in color and keeping the rest of the image black & white. I created the fish in the Silhouette Studio and then used the portrait to cut them out. I coated them in Glossy Accents and added a few sequins to look like bubbles for the little fishies.

Magical Birthday

I have a really fun card to share with you today! I created a scene with a few different images from Scrapper's Delights to make this birthday card. 

I colored the whole thing with Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers. I spent 3 evenings working on this and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I used a few techniques from the Kit & Clowder Create and Learn classes on the background, and of course I learned so much from the Hair & Skin Class as well! 

I added some Spectrum Clear Sparkle Pen over the purple part of her dress after I colored it. I also used a white paint pen to add some detail to her wings. 

This is one of those cards that I just don't want to give away. So I am holding on to it for awhile. It will get sent to someone who I know will really appreciate all the work that went into this, but I can't say who- that would ruin the surprise. Next year, when their birthday comes around again.
