Dreamweaver Dark and Dramatic

Hello crafters,

My favorite time of the year is nearly upon us…FALL.  This month’s challenge theme at EclecticEllapu starts the season off with Dark/Dramatic Colours and/or something Scary.   My project is a dark dramatic and somewhat scary looking card. I didn’t want to do a the usual Halloween card.  I went to Pinterest for some ideas.  I got the idea for this card from Susan H.  I followed the link to Susan’s blog which is My Mindful Creations that link should take you directly to the post for this card, it’s dated October 5, 2012.  I changed up a few things on the card but her card truly inspired me, thank you Susan!  
The supplies I used for my card:  Grey cardstock I had in my stash for a long time.  It was from The Paper Company, the colour is charcoal.  Black cardstock- Michael’s Recollection brand, Strathmore 140lb Cold Press Watercolor paper, Tim Holtz (TH) Oxide Distress Inks Black Soot and Iced Spruce, TH Distress Ink Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, and Squeezed Lemonade, Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, TH Distress Spray bottle to add a little water, my heat tool, Spellbinders Die D-Lite “Hello”, Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles, 3 black flat back pearls, and I created the sentiment on my computer using font-Chiller a size of 26.   I really like how it turned out.   Please join us at Eclectic Ellapu, I can’t wait to be inspired by what you create!!   Check out the photos below. 

This is really dark, I tried to enlarge the image so you can read the sentiment which says: "Bat you didn't know I was thinking about you?!"

Here is a close up of the greeting.  I added dimension by cutting the greeting x2 in black and x1 in the charcoal cardstock, then I glued them all together but I offset the charcoal just bit.

Well, I'm off on another crafting adventure, let's see where my mind takes me...til' next time,

30 Day Color Challenge Day 6-Decorated Eggs

Hello Colour Challenge Friends,
This is going to be a very quick post.  I just got home from work and I am absolutely exhausted but I had to post my colouring project for today.  This literally took me about 7 minutes to colour.  This is a stamp by Stampendous, stamp number Q150 Decorated Eggs.  I coloured the eggs with Copic Markers.  The cardstock is Stampin UP’s Daffodil Delight and the patterned paper is an old Prima paper pack called Fairy Flora.  Since the challenge is about colouring, I may or may not make cards out of the images that I colour.   Well, that’s it for tonight, I hope you pop on over to The Daily Marker and join the fun!  Here's a picture of my eggs...

See yins tomorrow, stay colourful

The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Hello Crafty Peeps!

Okay, I needed some motivation and I think I have found it!  I was looking for something on Jennifer McGuire’s blog when I stumbled upon The 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy over at The Daily Marker.  The challenge goes from Sept 1st thru Sept 30th.  Basically, the challenge is to colour something every day even it’s only five minutes. You can use any colouring medium.  You can find the specific details of the challenge on The Daily Marker.  I am pretty excited about the challenge of trying to colour something every day.  You all know how much I love my Copics.  The other challenge is going to be making something with the images I colour.  Over the last several months I haven’t been feeling so good and haven’t been able to get in my craft room as much as before.  I felt like I was becoming detached from crafts.  My crafts are my therapy!  So The 30 Day ColoringChallenge came right-on-time.  

Today is day 5, Kathy says there’s no need to feel you have to play catch up but if you want to no problem.  You can upload your colouring masterpiece on the site, Facebook, or Instagram.  Please go to the Daily Marker site for the specific information about the challenge and about Instagram.   

I am uploading my favorite flower…The Sunflower.  I coloured this image with a combination of Copic Markers and Pro Markers, the Stamped image is by Stampendous, it's called "Sunflower Ladybug" and the stamp number is P024. I purchased the stamp from Hobby Lobby.  I absolutely love the way it turned out.  Well, I better get crackin'  on my next image if I'm going to try to keep up.  I hope you’ll join us for The 30 Day Coloring Challenge.   Have a colourful day!

Joyce, the Duchess of the Glenn
