It’s never too late to kick your butt!

Its never too late to kick your butt 2014
Our challenge at Though the Craft Room Door challenge has started and all the challenges are “ANYTHING GOES”, the sponsor is Dr. Digi House of Stamps and this image is called “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dunderton”. Most of you know my grand son Isaiah who is now 16 years old has a black belt in Ta Kwan Do so this is the perfect card I’m going to send to him. He will get a big charge out of it. I’m also using this card for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week the twisted is “your favorite Technique” and one of my favorite techniques are working with a watercolor wash and doing the background on my cards. We would love to see what your favorite technique is.

Still using my scraps. The sentiment I made it up in Microsoft Word.

Out of a piece of scrape paper I made a piece that kind of looked like a board, tried to rise it up a little. Use a small piece of plastic, so you could not see it.

More scraps and left it open so I can write a small note to Isaiah.

Tomorrow it is going to be real windy so I bet that will take care of a lot of stunning leaves that are still on the trees. I will try and share the tree with you. These are some beautiful ones. Have a wonderful week end.

Trilliums Flowers

Trilliums 2014
Our challenge for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday has began and the twist for this week is “anything goes” optional twist “anything goes”. How fun is that? Sorry it is so late as it has been a long day had to go to the doctors and have some tests done and that’s no fun! My image for this week is from I Brake for Stamps and it is called “Trilliums”. I think it is so pretty with the butterfly, So I wanted to share it with you.
Our wonderful sponsor for the month of September is:
Trilliums 2014  r
Here are the side views. The teal flowers are from prima rose flowers. The leaves are from Martha Steward punch called Frond.
Trilliums 2014  l
My papers are all from my scraps and I’m doing really good getting my scraps down. Added some green ribbon. Brilliance ink sky blue for the background.
 
 
The picture is fine but not very straight (sorry). Used a flower punch and add the flowers I punched out to the other side. Just cannot waist anything. Let open for sentiment. Not sure if you can tell I added pink gems to the center of the flowers on top.
These are the copic markers used to color the stamped image. Here is the close up of the image all colored up. Used copic opaque white to try and add some texture to the flowers.
 
Hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and be safe.
