This week, I made two cards as a DT for Penny's. The first used a fun and whimsical image from challenge sponsor, Fabrika Fantasy, named "Flying Elf." [You can find it .] I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers, plus a white gel pen and sparkly gold gel pen. [You can't see the gold in the photos, but I dabbed dots across the dragons head, body and tail to add a bit of glimmer to his scales. I used some patterned vellum that I purchased at Hobby Lobby to use on mermaid cards. It nicely mimics dragon scales, too. To highlight the image, I added a white circle beneath the vellum, then mounted both the image and vellum circle onto black cardstock. Perfecto. Lastly, I smeared some clear glue across the bottom of the card front then liberally sprinkled a path of large glitter to beneath the dragon and his cute rider. Finished the card by adding a glitter trail to the inside of the card to match the front. The sentiments are both computer generated.

My second card for Penny's this week features the adorable image named "Tea Cup Teddy" from the challenge's second sponsor, Di's Digi Stamps. I used a super simple card technique named the Diaper Fold [you can find instructions in this .] I used a square doily as the base for the folded card, adding pink cardstock on the back of the card, and also as an insert to add strength and durability. The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen. The sentiment is from Whimsie Doodles, which is no longer available after they closed shop last year. [I sure miss them.] Am entering this card into several challenges including If You Give a Crafter a Cookie [the pastel colors and lacy doily on the card reflect those in the pretty cookies. Plus... Mothers Day is the perfect time for a tea party.] The sentiment is from Whimsie Doodles [which, sadly, went out of business last year.]
My final card for this post is another coffee themed card for the
