Red, White, and Blue
Since Memorial day is on the 30th I thought it would be nice to honor and remember all of our Active Duty and Veterans by using the patriotic colors for our challenge. You do NOT have to have a patriotic card as you will see from what our DT has put together, I just want to see the colors of red, white, and blue so have fun with it!

Mother's Day Card !!!

Some time has passed since my last posting. A lot of work and of course a lot of challenges!

Recently I began working with copics. Those who have visited previously know that I love to color and usually use coloring pencils, but got my hands on some markers and have falled in love with them.
This is the first card I make using copics and it was for my Mom, and she loved it:
Copic markers: B16, R29, RV11, R59, Y08, YG07, YG17

Tim Times Ten Grand Give-A-Way Challenge: Day Ten -- The End

Tim Times Ten Grand Give-A-Way Challenge: Day Ten -- The End
Our last challenge, then, is to make a Brag Book of the nine tags that you have created over the last nine days. It can be bound by rings as I have done or by using a Cinch or BIA or other wire binding device. The tags must be in the Brag Book in the order in which they were created over the nine days. There must be a way in which you display/provide the recipe for each tag. You must have at least one cut from a die-cutting device -- Cricut, Cuttlebug, MS Punch, etc. -- whichever one you use doesn't matter. You must create a cover which utilizes a sentiment and an image stamp and the acrylic paint resist technique.

Sure it seem easy, but wait, all my tags are different sizes…

Then I began thinking it’s my brag book, so I can do it, however I want.
Problem solved!!!

For the acrylic resist technique I wanted a kind of fading vintage look, so I had to be careful with the colors used for distressing. Took me a little, since I had to work the colors very gently, but the result is really pretty.

The sentiment is a stamp given to me by another dear friend. Used the Cricut and Tie the Knot cartridge for the die cut where the sentiment was stamped.

The image stamp is from Stamping Up, simple and sweet.

In order to put my book together, I used again the Cricut and the Sentimentals cartridge. The envelopes I chose have a swirly flap and I inked them with metallic ink.

Here is the tenth tag and also my cover for the brag book:

Some details:






The brag book is a fun way to display the tags:













I can’t believe this is the last one!  I would like to thank each and everyone that visited my blog and read about this adventure.
Click HERE to see all the wonderful creations. Everyone is doing a great job!!!

Love,

Julia
