Inspiration Destination - Sponsor Beccy Muir

Wow... Time's whipping by...
Welcome to my blog everyone!   
is having another week of 
Anything Goes!
I am using one of the many beautiful images from our sponsor

I chose the Dalmation image because I've always loved dogs.  
As a teen,  I had a dalmation/mixed dog named Justice, ohhhh how I miss her so...  I loved all my fur babies, past and present.

The background paper has different colored paw prints.  
With my Copic Pens handy (as always) I began coloring the dalmation image using the following colors:
B000, B00, B02, B04, B05, B24, YG11, YG17,YG4.
On his collar, I added 4 tiny light green pearls.  He was then dosed in Glossy Accent.  Once dried, I triple matted shades of blue cardstock.  Added the "Feeling Blue" sentiment, which I also triple matted.
A big THANK YOU to our sponsor 
Love your images!!
Don't forget, it's always Anything Goes at the 
Thanks for your visit.

Inspiration Destination - Sponsor- Stamps4Joy

Hey Bloggers!
Welcome!
I had fun playing with this tag.  I'm missing my hometown, NYC.  It's time for another trip into the city with my Cannon and canines.   We are being sponsored by Stamps4Joy.   I wanted to share this image named, Vintage Geek Girl that I chose to play with from their great selection.
Don't forget to hop on over Inspiration Destination's Challenge Blog and join in on the challenge.
I decided to go with a tag this time.
Began by coloring my tag with a Blending Tool using Tim Holtz' Distress Ink, Bundled Sage.  I then used my Tim Holtz Burlap & Swirls Texture Fades and ran the tag through my Vagabond.  


A couple of city skyline silhouettes were cut out on my Cricut Expression.  They were placed on the bottom of the tag, out came my white marker and dotted the skyline which looks like windows on the buildings.  A piece of winter ribbon on the baseline.
 

I colored the image with my Copic Pens:
E0000, E000, R08, B02, B04, YG03, YG11 YG13,
G14, G29 ML-0.3
 
Glossy Accent was used on her eyeglasses, clothing and shoes.
A Balloon Martha Stewart punch out of metallic card stock, using black wire as the strings.  Most of the balloons were popped Recollection's Pop Dots.  Used Copic Pens to color some balloons green.


A few ebellishments and a purse charm finished off the tag.
Once again, thank you for your time.
Inspiration is all around us, just
open your mind and your eyes...
Take care...
