It's Wednesday! So time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog where challenges are always Anything Goes and prizes are awarded from one or more sponsors.  Stop by the blog to check it out! The sponsor this week is Di's Digital Stamps and I used their fun image named "What a Catch." You can find it HERE. [And it's on sale right now for $2.50] Colored the happy fisherbear with Spectrum Noir markers and white gel pen. Added glitter glue to add sparkle to the water and a bit of bottle green Nuvo Crystal Drops to add some shimmer to the little fishy fins. This bit of bling also allows me to enter the card into Di's Digital Stamps challenge. The sentiments are computer generated.

Wanted to enter one more card into the current challenge  at "If You Give a Crafter a Cookie" that features superheroes. TLC Creations provided a wonderful inspiration digi upon which I could build a card… and this wonderful Nurse emblem is FREE. You can find it HERE. The inside heartbeat image and stethoscope are both freebies from LoveSVG. [I signed up for their newsletter and get notices of freebies on a regular basis. Not sure if this is still available, but you can search HERE.] The inside sentiment is computer generated. Am entering this into several challenges including Bugaboo "Fairy Tale/Fantasy." [I think that superheroes fall into the fantasy realm. And, since my mom was a nurse, as are two of my sister-in-laws, I think that some of the work they do could qualify as supernatural. They truly are amazing people.]

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge- June                                       

My final card for this post was made with one of the first wood mounted rubber stamps that I purchased back in the mid 90's. I loved the simplicity of this Baby Jesus image and both sentiments from Azadi Earles, especially when combined with this, also very old, rubber stamp of the heart-shaped world. [Sadly, I can't tell you who made this image as I pulled it from the wood long ago. It makes a much better impression on my MISTI than I ever got when it was wood mounted. for this card, I inked the stamp with green and used light blue paper as my base. A little grey marker to add some shading and a bit of foam tape made the finished image really pop.] I colored the image with Tombow watercolor markers and added a bit of sparkle with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Markers, Metallics.
