You're amazing - Catch the bug - Saturday BINGO

Saturday February 18, 2017
 
Welcome to another challenge at Catch the bug..
This Saturday is BINGO 
 
 
This is the BINGO card to follow




I used the center row.. Bugaboo image/red/sparkle... I used the Bugaboo image called Kidz Valentine's day   I dry embossed the red background and added some Stampin up cording to the card. I then colored the image with copics and added glitter to two of the balloons for the sparkle. This could be used for so many occasions .. I like this sentiment from Simon Says.  Hope you play along.

Look at this cuttie.. I sure had fun making the background scene for him to be in. I started with PTI rays stamp to give a look of the sun coming up.. then added some pink with Ranger ink to give that red sky in the morning feel. I used some different greens by Ranger and did the ground. I found this old stamp from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumper for the grass area. I used a Simon Says tree stamp and birds. Then I used a PTI fence die and some Quick quote scraps to make the fence. I colored the image in Copics and used the Paper Trey Ink sentiment because of the sun rise I first started with.

I received this awesome stamp set from the admin. for our blog as a thank you for being on the design team.. That was so awesome. I was really touched. So I had to used parts of it for my Valentine card.  The flowers and leaves are a part of the set from Basic Grey.. The sentiment is from Simon Says. I thought the corner was a little lack of something so die cut a Spellbinder heart and ran it through my Stampin up embossing folder. it still looked a little boring so I used my spectrum glitter pen and still boring so added some jewel Nuvo drops to it.. In real... it looks awesome.

I'm crazy like a FOX - Catch the bug New release

Tuesday February 14, 2017
 
Welcome to a New Release from Catch the bug   you can find the image in the Bugaboo Store
 
 
This is the new release  Fox   cute little guy or gal.. I wasn't sure what the face was suppose to say (this image does come with a few sentiments) but I wanted to use a sentiment from Tech. Tuesday.. so I chose I'm crazy like a FOX about you.. he / she has that shy look on it's face.. I colored the image with Copics and used some fencing from Paper Trey ink die. I used my cloud template and added some EK punched hearts. I added glossy accents to the hearts and eyes. Oh the hearts have Spectrum Noir before the glossy.  I am still working at getting the white gel pens dots to my projects. Sooner or later I will understand where those white dots should go or not go.. LOL .. but I am happy with this card. I hope you head over to the store and pick up this cute image. You might want to head over to the Catch the bug site and see the DT members cards.

Will you be my Valentine? - Aud Sentiments #173

Thursday February 9-20, 2017
 
It's time for a new challenge at Aud Sentiments #173
 
This challenge is VALENTINES/LOVE + SENTIMENT
 

Ok so I am really loving making watercolor backgrounds. I seem to be doing this a lot and love that each comes out so different. Also learning what colors work and what don't, you just end up with a muddy mess. Glad there's two sides to papers.. lol.. I first stamped the sentiment in Lipstick red glitter embossing powder and then used three Ranger inks to create my background. Once it was dry and how I wanted it I noticed the red sentiment did not show very well. So thanks to the MISTI I re-stamped in black and had a little of the glitter show through. I have been waiting to use my crazy dogs from Tim Holtz and thought this would work.  The little bones are like chocolate offerings.. with dog's not being able to eat chocolate this is their offering.. LOL. I added some Simon Says hearts with Spectrum Noir on them and a few drops of Nivo in a couple corners.
