Day 7 Birthday fishes Free Friday - Catch the bug birthday bash

Friday January 20, 2017
 
 
 
Day 7 of Catch the bug Birthday Bash.. UNDER THE SEA theme..
Today being Friday its Free Friday.. and the theme for you to follow is a recipe.. 2 bows... 3 layers... 4 pearls
 

The Free Friday image from
 
I colored the image with copics and then added some white gel pen dots. I found some fun papers and spayed the background with various colors and went around the outer embossed the turquoise paper. I sprayed the background with different sprays till I got the effect i wanted and went around the edges with Quick Quote chalk ink.  I did glossy accents on the snow bubbles and eyes.. For the Recipe 2 bows.. 3 layers and 4 pearls.. I used a branch die I have from Simon says and it has the option of hanging presents or other items off of it.. I cut off the bows till I only had two.. then I hug pearls off of them and below added another branch and pearl.. I thought the branches looked like coral.. It was kind a hard to add bows to this kind of image but I think I got it to work.. Of course the 3 layers are easy.. Have fun and follow the recipe.. curious to see what you come up with.

Wednesday January 18, 2017
 

 
 
 Day 5 of our Catch the bug birthday bash..  
UNDER THE SEA is our theme
Wednesday is Humor Wednesday so the challenge is to make a card with a funny sentiment
 
 
 
I am using the Bugaboo image called Beach monkey inner tube  I took some water color paper and my Kuretake Gansai Tambi paints and did the water. I then used my cloud template to give a little blue to the sky.. I chose some fun fish from Hampton stamps, Rubber baby buggy bumper.  The ducks are from Stampscapes.  I had to add the shark  LOL.. The sentiment is Dylusions and Hero Arts happy birthday.. It should say don't feed the sharks.. LOL  The monkey is floating in the sea and the bottom half of his body has a blue tinge to it to show he's in the water. I hope the computer picks up the colors. I colored the fish with some copics.. To me it's a funny sentiment funny card.. I hope you play along.. I have loved seeing the cards already entered in our other challenges this Birthday Bash week.

This is the BINGO card below and you know how to play.. chose three in a row.. up/down - sideways  - diagonal ...



I am using the Birthday Bash release image.. there are a few images in the set and I chose to use the Birthday Fish and Birthday Worm.. I used my Ranger inks and watercolor paper to get the effect I wanted for the water background. I colored the images with copics and then fussy cut out the images. I chose the three in a row that are diagonal.. Sparkle (the fish hook and stems of the plants) Bugaboo image and Pearls.  I added the pearls along the fish and worm like Jodie did the bubbles in her drawing.  I grabbed some leaf stamps from Simon says and one from Rubber seed and stamped along the bottom.  I used my white gel pen to add dots to the images and glossy accents to the eyes of the fish.

Day 3 - Catch the bug - Birthday Bash - color challenge

Monday January 16, 2017
 
 
 
Day 3 of Catch the bug birthday bash. Our theme for our birthday bash is "UNDER THE SEA"
Being Monday.. at Catch the bug.. it's Anything But a Card..
 
 
 
I chose the image called Stella drown your troubles  which you can find at the Bugaboo store.. I found this fun image of Stella and decided I would make a tag. I used a Stampin up die and just cut the top edge. I added some yarns I have to the hole I punched and colored her in copics trying to keep with the color challenge. See her green hair?? She' one hip lady... I added clouds that are a die and stamp from My Favorite Things.  She looks like she's having a great in the water. I love looking at the ocean and we only live about 45 min. away.. would be closer if we didn't have so many winding roads to get there. OH the sentiment is from Art Impressions.. the ones with the bowling image.. this sentiment went perfect for this tag..

Warmest winter wishes - Creative with Stamps #10

Sunday January 15, 2017
 
 
It's mid month and you still have time to enter your card if you haven't done 3 already..
The theme is Winter Wonderland and Color challenge..
 
remember to add the blow graphic to your blog
 


OH MY I LOVE the house mouse images and I only have two.. darn I need more. I have this one and then one with the mouse and hearts..  I tried to stay with the color theme.. I mentioned on January 1st the colors looked more gray and the last color was a tanish color.. The printer or computer did not  not talk to each other re the colors.. LOL.. anyhow I colored the image in copics and used some stickles on the flame. The sentiment is from Papertrey ink.. Kept the card pretty simple.. OH I got to use a larger piece of my 100 sheet by mistake purchase behind the image. LOL.
I hope you get time to play along. Just make sure you follow the rules.. no more than 3 cards, use stamps or digi's and add the challenge graphic.  Have fun..
