Kenny K Black and White Challenge and New Images

Kenny K released two new images and a new set of sentiments called "Social Media" and as usual they are awesome. I can't tell you how fast I scooped up the entire bundle. The new images along with their theme "Black and White"-- one of my favorite color combinations,  got my creative juices flowing and this is what I came up with.

This image is "Retro Selfie." I cropped it then colored it with Copic Markers. After fussy cutting it I attached to a Frantic Stamper Inc "Instant Camera 3 x 4 Photo card" die. The paper is form My Minds Eye. I rounded two opposite corners with a "Crop A Dile Corner Chomper." I replaced her retro camera with a one from the photo card set. The KK sentiment was cut with a stitched die from the Frantic Stamper Inc Elementals #1 set. Finally I added Tim Holtz "Film Strip Ribbon", bling and flowers from my stash.

Outlawz Challenge 11/15/2014

Happy Saturday and welcome to another Paper Ala Mode Challenge at the Outlawz. 
Our theme for this week is:
-use teal & purple on your project.
Our sponsor is Squigglefly. Make sure to check out her shop.
Visit the Outlawz for more inspirations. 
Also be sure when you upload your card in the gallery you need to tag your card PAM11152014.
My beautiful creation is below.

I started by coloring my image, Snowman Bird, with Copic Markers. Using DCWV white core paper, I used the snowflake embossing folder. I sanded the embossed paper to really bring out the snowflakes. I was an embossing fool! Not in a bad way but I went on to use Frantage with heat embossing and Ranger embossing glitter and finally wet embossed the sentiment as well. The sentiment is from Close to my heart. The single snowflake was punched with an ekSuccess punch and highlighted with teal colored bling. Finally I added some additional interest with Stickles.

Corrosive Challenge #212

It's time for another Corrosive Challenge--#212 to be exact. Our sponsor for this challenge is 

the challenge theme is
Simply create something any girl would love, and you're good to go! The lucky winner will receive 3 Digis from our sponsor. There are SO many cute/sexy/fun images to choose from, it's not an easy choice.

The image I used is called "Hot Mess." I colored her with Copic markers. Next I chose papers from my stash and cut the stitched background and sentiment with Frantic Stamper Inc Elementals #1 die. Using glittered foam and additional papers I used my Cricut machine and Paper Dolls for Everyday cartridge and to cut the "campfire." I also used both Cuttlebug and Paper Studios embossing folders to add additional texture. Finally I used Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" Distress ink to highlight the flame and campfire logs.

Be sure to stop by the Corrosive Challenge blog for more inspiration and to enter your own creation!
