Penny's Challenge #301: Anything Goes!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's week is going well! I swear I don't know what DAY it even is, I've been doing some traveling for work, my mom is visiting/helping with the kiddos while I do that, plus some major fall cleaning projects around the house. Oh, and yesterday was my older son's birthday! Nothing like a "busy week", right??

The new challenge at Penny's starts today though! Our sponsors this week are Fred She Said and Little Blue Button Stamps. Prizes are up for grabs! You have until Tuesday night to link up with us on the Penny's Challenge blog.

Today's card features the happy little Emma Mermaid:


Isn't she fun? There are some accessories and a background included with the set, but I just kept picturing her against a fun, bright background, so I switched gears on this project and went with my gut.

Colored with Copics, dies from Gina Marie, embellies and paper from Basic Grey, Fun Stamper's Journey.

That's it for this post! Don't forget to swing over to the Penny's Challenge blog to link up your projects for your chance to win! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!

Oddball Art October FB Challenge Reminder - AG!

Good afternoon all! Today I'm sharing my Oddball Art Stamps Design Team challenge reminder card. We have two challenges per month at Oddball, the first one is the Facebook Challenge, which is always Anything Goes in theme. The challenge takes place on Facebook (obviously) and runs from the 1st through the last day of the month. Just upload your Oddball Art Stamps cards to the album and viola! There is also a themed blog challenge that you can check out and play along in!

Oh...and did you know...if you need this, or any other image (you do), you can receive 10% off your order using coupon code DTJENNIFER10. Perk package!

My second project for our Anything Goes Facebook Challenge this month features this AWESOME Cosplay image...Cosplay Fun #303. She was colored up with a whole big pile of Prismacolor Premier Pencils this time around - I've been slowly testing the waters and trying to improve my pencil skills!


I have used my brand new Brushos color powders on the background today, for the first time ever. I have NO IDEA what I'm doing with them, hehe. But so much fun to make a crafty "mess" sometimes! Also some Tonic Nuvo dots and Stickles thrown on there to help the "stars" shine through this nebulous creation. I couldn't come up with a worthy sentiment for this project, so I just left it off for now. I can always add it before using, or put something on the inside.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Crafting From the Heart - #131: AG (1 of 3)
Inspiration Destination - #107: AG (unlimited)

My first project for our October Anything Goes Facebook Challenge features this amazing HALLOWEEN image (my favorite!!!)...Tiffany the Terrible #79. She was colored up with a whole big pile of Copic markers, and some Prismacolor Premier pencils too, for good measure. 



I have used cardstock and spray from Fun Stamper's Journey today. So much fun to make a "mess" with our awesome sprays! If you haven't checked them out, you NEED to! I also stippled some Old Olive ink around the main image panel before I sprayed the distressed paint look. Die is from Gina Marie (stitched rectangle), brad is Recollections and patterned paper is Basic Grey.

That's it for me today. I hope you're all having a fabulous day! Don't forget to check out the Oddball Art Stamps Facebook Group for more inspiration. I hope to see you playing along with your Oddball beauties!
