Weekend Challenges

Hello everyone~
Did you have a great weekend? We had a kind of dumpy and cold weather so I stayed at home the whole weekend. I did made 2 card for SCS challenges and some online shopping :)

The first card was Inspiration challenge 171 (IC171). The inspiration was from Fitz and Floyd. They have some beautiful classic decors! I especially love their bunny collections.
Here is what I used for the inspiraiton and my card.


最初のカードは、インスピレーションチャレンジ171(IC171)で作ったものです。今回のインスピレーションは、Fitz and Floydからでした。クラッシックで綺麗な飾り物を扱っていて、特に私は、ウサギのコレクションが気に入りました。こちらが、私が使ったインスピレーションと作ったカードです。

I love coloring and it calms me, especially with the cute bunny from House Mouse. This bunny's image is the one of my favorite images from House Mouse. She makes me smile every time :) I used the pansies from SU retired Hostess set to achieve the look of the plate. All the images were colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I also used Twinking H2Os for shading. The yellow color of the ribbon came from the yellow flowers on the plate and the weaving thing came from the plaid design of the bunny's bow.

色塗りをしていると気持ちも落ち着きます。特に、House Mouseからの可愛いウサギシリーズは大好き。このウサギのイメージは、House Mouseの中でも、特に気に入っていて、使う度に笑みがこぼれます。お皿の絵柄に近づかせる為に、SUの廃盤になったホステスセットのパンジーのスタンプを使いました。イメージは全て、プリズマカラーとモルツベンで色を塗り、Twinkling H2Osも影に使っています。黄色のリボンは、お皿の黄色からとり、リボンの編みこみは、ウサギに結んだリボンのプレードからとっています。

Stamps: Happy Hoppers (House Mouse), Flowers of Gratitude (SU)
Paper: sahara sand, mellow moss, Parisian Summer dp (SU), watercolor paper (Strathmore)
Ink: Palette noir black (Superior), mellow moss (SU), Prismacolor pencils, Twinkling H2Os, white gel pen
Accessories: SU ribbon

Tools: Nestabilities, SU oval punch

I made the next card for Featured Stampers 110 (FS110). The stamper was Stacy (Twinshappy). You HAVE TO see her gallery (it's over 110 pages, wow!) She does such beautiful work.
I decided to case her beautiful rose card (click here)
For this challenge, I used the stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps. As much as I love coloring, I also enjoy the process of the step stamps. It's fun to see the images become more details as every steps, plus you get to use many colors :)
I hope you can see the resemble of my card and Stacy's card although I changed quite a lot.

次のカードは、Featured Stampers 110 (FS110)で作りました。今回のスタンパーはStacy (Twinshappy)さんでした。彼女のギャラリー、是非是非見に行ってください!!(110ページ以上あります。凄い!)とっても素敵な作品を作られる方です。
このチャレンジでは、Kitchen Sink Stampsのスタンプを使いました。色塗りと同じ位、ステップスタンプのプロセスも大好きです。ステップを重ねる度に、もっと繊細なイメージになってくるのを見るのがとても楽しいし、沢山の色も使うことができるのもプラスです^^

It's also submitted to KS Crew Challenge. The challenge is to incorporate a photograph into a card or a project. I used the sky and wood photo papers for the background. Speaking of KS Crew challenge, I'm going to be a Guest Hostess for their challenge on Monday, Apr 6th!! I'm so excited to be a part of the awesome Crews next month. Wish me luck!

後、これはKS Crewチャレンジにも、エントリーしました。チャレンジは、写真を取り入れてカードや作品を作るです。私のは、バックグランドに空と木のフォトペーパーを使いました。KS Crewチャレンジ関係ですが、4月6日の月曜日のチャレンジをゲストホステスとして、担当することになりました!!来月、素敵なクルーの一員になるのに凄く興奮しています。上手くできるよう見守ってください!
