Sweatshirt Love

Hi All, Dorinda here today using:

I think Sweatshirt Saturday by Saturated Canary is quite elegant.
So, I made her into a Cas fancy card. :D
When using cameo images like this one, it can be frustrating to not have a finished
edge on the image. what I've done, is cut her out with the Basic Pierced Oval
and "finish" her image down.
I did have to draw in some line with my markers and that's ok.
She now looks like she has a dress on.

I used a simple white shimmer sheetz and the Gilded Embossing Folder to give some
dimension but keep with the clean look on the top and a soft pattern on the bottom.
And finally, I love this sentiment but it was too long and would
cover that gorgeous frame.
I took the line in the Background Builders, cutting them apart and boom, I've got my
sentiment in super cute shapes that fit perfectly.

I hope you are playing with your dies and finding new ways to use them.
Leave me a comment with ideas.
I'd love to see what you come up with.

Big Super Hugs,

Copics Used:
Skin: E04,11, 21, 00, 000, R20
Hair: E47,09,13
Dress: BV08, 04, 02

I am a HUGE fan of Ching Chou Kuik
and delighted to get to celebrate her amazing talents this weekend at PPCF.
I've used Heart of Spring
and let me tell you, I wanted to color them all.
I used Basic Background Builders I embossed; then edged it un-embossed.
Then taking the straight edge to create a ribbon strip. Using the coordinating color, I added a sweet little bow.
Adjusting the diamond quilt to only two pieces makes a unique frame for sentiments.
copics used were from the RV and BV groups

Out of focus

Hello MiC fans.
I'm here today with what will be the last Make it Crafty Challenge Post
MiC is still here but Zoe has sadly decided to end the challenges.
 I do hope you will join us for us last post.

I've used one of the new birds, Toucan

I added the blossom tree digi;
cropped off the birds, reduced the color to washout and the artistic effects to blur.
Then I dotted on a bit of RV000 and E0000 then sprayed and dotted some W00. Just a few dots not solid color.
I was really happy with how easy it was and the effect is awesome.
Drop your finished image in the folder 

I'll see you all around the color world.
