SDC218; Blue and brown color challenge

Gez is hostess this week for the SDC 218 Stampotique Designer's Challenge.  She says her favorite color combination is blue and brown and she is asking for us to have fun with it!
I always find myself needing a birthday card so I selected this brown paper that had "happy birthday" repeated in it -- snipped that out and set it aside.  Then I went into my collage stash and found some blue tones and scraps to make an interesting background.  Kira Nichols little Owlseeyou image seemed the perfect stamped element to this background.  I stamped him on watercolor paper and used a waterbrush and Peerless watercolors to color him.  I know I have some other colors in this composition but this is my take on blue and brown!

Think Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  October is also the month of my wedding anniversary. 
One of my dearest friends just began her chemo treatments prior to my wedding date.  Her wish was to have her hair and be well enough to dance at our reception.  She did, and she did.

This digi stamp is to honor my dear friend for her courageous fight and all others who have come before and after her.  I hope this confident gal named "PINK" will cheer someone who can use a pick me up or a little motivation.

SDC216; Create a tag

Coby is our hostess this week for the Stampotique Designers Challenge and is requesting that we all create a tag.

I love this chubby character named "Lollipop" created by Kira Nichols and thought it would make an adorable tag.

I stamped her with black Versamark and clear embossed then colored with Copic markers.  The tag is made from Dylusions ® sprays and I added some scraps and doodles. 

A fun and colorful tag to hand on a gift bag for most any happy occasions.
