Dragonfly Fantasy

Good Morning!
This lovely lady is Dragonfly Fantasy from Ching-Chou Kiuks Fantasy Art Collection. I am loving all these images, they allow me to express my fantasy side and be so creative with my coloring.
She is colored with my Crayola Twistable Colored Pencils, have you tried these?
The colors are so rich and you never have to sharpen them.
Please stop by Paper Jewels today, Jenny has so many stamps and emblishments to chose from.

Enjoy your day and smile,

She is colored with my Crayola Twistable Colored Pencils, which I totally love, the roses are colored with a copic to make them stand out against the subtle coloring of the image and added purple stickes to the moons in the background. I just love this image and think it is super sexy and love coloring her.

Dance in the Rain.......

Happy Monday, It's time for another challenge at Critter Sketch Challenge Blog.
This week our challenge is to create a pocket card. 
I love pocket cards and dug into my scrap pile and created my card in purple hues.
The sentiment is....
'Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness,
Has never danced in the rain.'

I hope you will stop by the challenge blog to play along and see what the DT has created to inspire you.

Have a super-duper day,

Rising Flame

OMG...OMG....OMG!!! I am so excited how this card turned out,
I just want to shout it from the roof top. LOL!!!!!
This is Rising Flame and you can find her and other Ching-Chou Kiuk Fantasy Art Collection at Paper Jewels. She is colored with my Bic Mark It-Alls (which I totally LOVE!)
I used a large black prima, folded in half to create the background for my 'rising sun' flower, matches perfectly, don't ya think? I did not use any designer paper, I want the image to be the main focus of the card, since she is so beautiful.
Hope you enjoyed today's post,

I am so excited to be back designing for Paper Jewels during June, I will be here on Tuesdays.
This is September Rhythm. She is colored using Bic Mark It Alls and Copics, added stickles to some of the flowers and to highlight her hair.
The pink tulle is recycled, it was on a gift I received during Secretary's Week.
