Ready to play another challenge with Inspiration Destination?  Join us on our Anything Goes challenge!  Follow the rules listed on the  blog and see the many prizes you can win from two of our awesome sponsors Crafty Sentiments & Sweet 7 Digital Designs!
 
 I've been anxious to share two new projects with you. 
One is for Crafty Sentiments Designs, the image I used is Lola.  The second project is from Sweet 7 Digital Designs here I used their Baby Deacon image.
Thank you both so much! 
 
In alphabetical order our first sponsor is 
My project for Crafty Sentiments Designs is a 5x6 canvas that I painted purple & white with acrylic paint
I used a glue gun to attach white lace ribbon around the center border that I painted white.   
 
 I wrote some words, cut them out and distressed each one with Tim Holtz's Distress Inks.  I used popped dots for dimension. 
October is breast cancer awareness month and since I lost my mom at the age of 56, 20 years ago.  I decided to incorporate the ribbon stickers into my project.
A Fairy Tales mini charm book was also popped and placed next to Lola.  I used my Copic Pens
E000, E02, E04, E11, E31, YR00, YR12, V000, RV02, RV09, RV34, RV95,  Y04, Y15, R85,
 I also added some Recollections rhinestones, (dark burgundy) around her waist line and on her shoes.
 
 
She was fortunate... she fought like a girl and was able to rest after reading a good book.  Lucky Lola...
 Thanks Crafty Sentiments for the opportunity.

Our next sponsor is Sweet 7 Digital Designs
I painted a 5x6 Canvas was colored with Teal Acrylic paint.  I then tore some Die Cuts w/ a View corrugated paper and distressed it using Tim Holtz's Distress Inks, Peacock Feather.  I ran some metallic tin through my Vagabond  using Tim's Embossing Folder-Gears
 

 Inked it with Distress Stains - Peeled Paint and Salty Ocean.  I then wiped off the excess and you can see how it made the embossed tin pop. 
I placed some balloon embellishments from Recollections which can be found at Michaels.  Some cream colored Prima flowers and a piece of some nice ribbon that matched the color scheme.
I colored the Baby Deacon image with my Copic Pens:
E000, E00, E02, E41, E50, E51, YR00, CO, C1, C3, C4, C7, GB10, BG11, BG13, BG18, BG32, BG72.

Fitztown Halloween 9 Image

I've been wanting to color this image the first day I laid eyes on it.  The image can be found at the Fitztown Store, image #9.
 
 
I began this tag by using Tim Holtz's Distress Inks, Peacock, Crushed Olive and Black Soot.  I then used the TH technique, Spritz & Flick. 
 
 The image was printed on Copic Paper, popped with Pop Dots and the following Copic Pens were used: 
BV0000, BV00, BV01, BV31, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG32,
BG72, B04, C1, C3,C4, C6, W4, W5, R20, R24, R32, V17, YG03, G21, G94, Multi-Liner 0.05
I used a Jolee's halloween sticker a crow holding the sign. 
The black fence came from a Martha Stewart punch.  I had some lime green colored spider web and a black spider.  They were added to the bottom of the tag.
I punched out a 1" circle added some DI Black Soot lightly from left to right to resemble fog.  Small bats of various sizes were glued on.
