Conie Fong "Peony Delight"

Conie Fong Art and Designs had a new digi release this week and I couldn't resist getting these beauties. They were called "Peony Delight" and "Peonies in a Jar."  I especially liked Peony Delight and decided to see if I could apply some of my Kit and Clowder coloring lessons to it.  I colored the image with Copics, then tried to create a background for it.  I went a little overboard on my color dimension and the background became a distraction from the image.  I started digging through my paper for a pack of Gradient colors I had purchased a while back.  I cut what I thought was the perfect background and made a 5X6.5" card.  I added sequins and a bow.  I hope you like it.
Thank you for visiting with me today.  I love hearing from you.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

Digistamps4Joy Mid-month Challenge Post

Today is the 15th of April, time for Team B's posting some inspiration for the Digistamps4Joy Challenge.  Our theme this month is Anything Goes with a twist of "Inspired By A Song".  I tried to think of a popular song I could represent but then decided on a song that has meant so much to me all my Christian life.  It's an old hymn that tells of the "Amazing Grace" of God.  Where would we be without that Grace extended to us at Calvary.  Easter always re-emphasizes how much God loves us. Thank you, Father, for your wonderful grace and love toward us.  Thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross that we might be saved.  Thank you, also, for rising from the dead that we can spend eternity with you.

Here is my card:

Card Supplies:
A2 card base
Background paper is gold foil and DCWV Violet Leaf
Image: Freesian Booklet from Digistamps4Joy 
Image colored with Copics.
Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you will join in our Inspired by a Song challenge.

God Bless You and I hope you have a wonderful Easter!!  Peggy

    Crafty Cardmakers Challenge-Something With Wings

    The Crafty Cardmakers Challenge that starts today is all about wings.  Please make a project and add something with wings.  My entry is from the Kit and Clowder March Pencil Class.  This months classes, both pencil and marker, have birds as the focal image.  I tried the marker class but did not like the way it was going so decided to try pencils.  I'm not completely happy with it but here it is.

    Crafty Cardmakers Challenge-Spring Into Spring

    We start a new challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers.  The theme is Spring into Spring.  It is my pleasure to host this challenge.  Spring is my favorite time of year.  It's the time of year flowers and all of nature take on new life and fill the world with beauty.  It's also the time we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.  I hope you will join our challenge and show us your beautiful Spring projects.

    My card is a simple card made with Craft Artist 2 Professional software.  I learned about this software from one of FB friends, Carla Brooke.  I pop-dotted some of the flowers and banner with foam adhesives for dimension.  


    I appreciate your visit today.  I'll be looking for your entries in our Spring into Spring Challenge.

    God Bless You !!  Peggy
