Tuesday Alchemy CH32 - Brown, Mustard & Navy

Hello again my dear friends - 

As you may have noticed already I have two posts today.  The first one is for "Breast Cancer Awareness" and the second is our weekly Tuesday Alchemy Challenge.

I am also super excited because I have won my first blog candy from Anything But A Card  and I placed in the Top 3 with Challenges 4 Everybody.   

It was definitely a great way to start the week.  

We have two great sponsors this week.  They are

It's time for this weeks challenge at Tuesday Alchemy.  It is our Color Challenge - "Brown, Mustard & Navy".  You can use one, two or all three of them.  The only other colors you are welcome to use are neutrals such as black, ivory, tan and white.

Marion who is one of our design team members has created some beautiful patterned digital papers you can use for this challenge.  Here is the link to her blog where you can see all the wonderful papers.  Thanks Marion for creating these wonderful papers and your willingness to share with all of us.

For this weeks challenge I decided to use this scalloped box/frame (cardboard I think) I got at a craft store in Oregon.  The cashier was going to throw it away and I gasped.  You know me - I hate to see anything thrown away.  I asked if I could keep it and she said she couldn't give it to me but I could buy it for 25 cents.  I said "sold" and hadn't had a chance to use it until now.  It is 2.75" x 4".

I painted it brown, added stickles all around the edges for some sparkle and shine.  Added the blue ribbon and paper pieced the bird, flowers and tree stump.  I am hoping to maybe add some blue sky around the bird to kind of soften the look.  Think that would work??  Have you ever had that feeling where you couldn't figure what else to do with something until you let it go and process it a little more?  It was kind of strange not using my copics but I will play with this cute little bird later today and see what I can come up with.  I am hoping to get another version added to this post later this week.  
  So dear ladies - join in with us this week.  We are looking forward to seeing what you create.  Our design team and guest team designers have some wonderful creations as inspiration for this challenge and you can find them here at Tuesday Alchemy

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
