CDAC Progressive Challenge 3 Card 4

This is my fourth card for this round of the CDAC Freebie Progressive Challenge. The image that I used was created by Just Inklined. I really love this image and I wish that the scan would do this card justice because it looks so much better in person that it does scanned. I used watercolor pencils and prismacolor illustration markers to color this image. I colored two of these images as close to identical as I could and then I cut the butterfly out of the second image and popped it up on pop dots on the first image. I used paper from DCWV. I hope that you like this card. The real-life card has an even border the whole way around instead of the off-center image the way that the scan shows. I can't wait for the next round of this challenge to start tomorrow.

CDAC Progressive Challenge 3 Card 3

Here is my third card for this progressive challenge. Once again I am using the image from Gurukitty Designs. I watercolored this image, cut it out and then used a glue stick to apply it to the card base that I made using mottled green paper from my paper stash. I also used a leaf border from my graphics stash. I really like the way that this card turned out. Once again this card is scanned since my camera is broken right now. I hope that you like this card. There have been over 300 items posted for this round of the progressive challenge - make sure that you stop by to see them all!

CDAC Progressive Challenge 3 Card 2

Here is my second card for the third round of the CDAC Progressive Challenge. The theme for this round was to create something with an Autumn or Fall theme. The graphic that I used for this card is by Glitterbabes. I colored the image with watercolor pencils and then I cut the bowl of apples out and popped them up on foam dots to give them some dimension on the finished card. I hope that you like it. My camera is broken at this time so I am forced to post scans of my cards. I am having problems getting the scans to come close to looking as good as the cards do up close and personal. The papers that I used in this card were from my stash. Thanks for stopping by to see my card.

* In reality this card is actually even the whole way around but this was the best scan that I could get of this card. I apologize for this issue.

CDAC Progressive Challenge 3 Card 1

Here is my first card for the third round in the CDAC Progressive Challenge Round 3. Check out this great series of challenges here:

I used watercolor pencils to color the image and the background paper was a digital paper from my paper stash and the metallic cardstock was from my stash. This image was from Gurukitty Designs. I had a very enjoyable time coloring this image and then cutting it out so that I could make it pop on this fall-themed dp.

New Cards For Back to School Week

This card was made using a frame from PC Hugware. I have had a lot of their images for a very long time. The bookworm that is in the center of the card is also another PC Hugware image. The pencil that is on the right hand side of the card is one that I colored with water colored pencil and SPICA glitter pen and cut out myself. I am not entering this card in the Progressive Challenge because it is not using on of their required images. I hope that you like this card.

See you soon.

My Entry for CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge 1

Here is the card that I made for the first CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge. I had planned on finishing more than just one card, but life really got in my way this month. So here is my one and only card... I made the card base myself from white 110lb cardstock, the pastel green cardstock was from my scrap pile. I used watercolor pencils to color in the great free digital image that we were given by Annie's Digital Art. This is the first time that I have participated in one of these challenges, I apologize for the way that my card looks - my regular digital camera is broke and I couldn't get the one in my cell phone to take a good picture so I ended up scanning the card with  my new printer and am posting it that way. I promise to try to get better pictures in the future.
