Poppy Bloomin' Treasures Challenge

This was a fun little challenge using a supplied colour palette.  It was interesting to see how different all of the colourings were.  The image we used is Poppy Bloomin' Treasures by artist Heather Valentin.  You can find her at Lacy Sunshine Stamps.  She is one of the images on the Lacy Sunshine Bloomin' Treasures Coloring Pages Set #2.  Here is my interpretation of the palette.

I decided to try something new and put her on a flame less candle.  The coloured image was scanned and printed onto tracing paper.  I taped the thin tracing paper to some card stock so it would feed through the printer.  Once printed and trimmed a heat gun was used to attach the image to the candle.  

The Poppy candle is a nice addition to my craft table.

Happy Holidays Christmas Card

Today I am sharing my card for the bi-weekly challenge over at the Lacey Sunshine Colour Your World, Anything Goes Challenge.  I was given the digi Snow Days Rory to use for creative inspiration but thought she looked a little lonely and needed a friend.  Merging Reggie Christmas Bells was the perfect answer.

Rory's Lil Reindeer Friend Christmas Card

Hi all! Today I am sharing a card I made using Rory's Lil Reindeer Friend by artist Heather Valentin.  You can find more Rory digi's at the Lacy Sunshine, Color Your Wold, Crafter's Candy Shoppe.  I must admit I am a big Rory fan and do enjoy colouring her.

Rory's Lil Reindeer Friend Christmas Card

On this card the embellishments were kept low and minimal so the card would be easier and less expensive to mail out.  All papers and embellishments are from my stash scraps.  Snow-tex and glitter was used for the snow accents.  The snowflakes were created with a Recollections 5/8in punch . 

Rory's Lil Reindeer Friend was coloured using Copic markers.  Colours used are on the recipe card below.
