Creative Knockouts #136: Border Time

Good morning stampers! I'm a day late, so two posts today! Yesterday started a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts (#135) where the challenge is....Borders! This week's sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs, and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!

Here is my project, featuring Wonder Woman Sassy. I decided to make her in traditional Wonder Woman colors. She's colored with Copics, and the gold is from a gel pen.




My border item is a bit hidden, it's the blue behind the main image panel, it's a bracket border die from Verve Stamps. The image was so large I just wanted ot use a little of the Royal Blue for accent and not overpower this awesome lady! As you can see, she is flying through the crowds with stars EVERYWHERE! ;)


This is from a sketch challenge - Viva la Verve's first April sketch this month.

Penny's Challenge #272: Anything Goes

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! There is a new challenge this morning over at Penny's Challenge! Must be Wednesday!

I want to share my card for this current challenge where the theme is - ANYTHING GOES! Well that's an easy one. This week's sponsor is Little Blue Button Stamps, and they are offering a wonderful prize to lucky stampers!

Here is my project, featuring "Button In Frame". I love her hair! This is such a cute image, and it's nice and versatile, so I knew I had to grab her and get coloring!


I used a color challenge for this card today, because it's so fresh and pretty I just couldn't pass it up! Share Joy #29:

It's JessicaLynnOriginal's 11th Anniversary!

Happy Tuesday stamping friends!

Today I have something special to share with you. This week marks the ELEVENTH anniversary of JessicaLynnOriginal.com. I can't believe it's been that long! I was on her very first Design Team way back when, so I think I am especially impressed by her wonderful run in creating and designing stamps!

To celebrate, there is a NEW Brentwood Owl digital stamp freebie "Brentwood Owl - Singing in the Rain", and I have featured him here on my spotlight card today.  Brentwood is of COURSE my favorite character or image type from Jessica's large and diverse collection, and this one is tons of fun just like the others! Be sure to get over to the store and grab him during the Anniversary Week while he is still free!   
 


I took another photo of this card, tipped at a bit of an angle so you can (hopefully) see the detail I added after I colored him up with my Copic markers. Parts of his umbrella, his rain slicker, and spots along the grass have been gone over with a glaze that dries shiny, so it looks like they are wet (or a shiny vinyl material, like the rain slicker). I just HAD to get a wet look going for this card, with this wonderful umbrella feature...to really make it POP! As you can see there is still sunshine on a cloudy day here on my blog!



That's it for me today. Check back in with us on the JLO Design Team all week for more inspiration and Anniversary celebration! You can "like" JessicaLynnOriginal.com on Facebook here, and join our group to share your art and projects created with Jessica's stamps here. We'd love to see you there!
