Last OCL challenge for July

This is the last OCL challenge for July.  You know what that means!  They will be drawing a winner for the free stamp set!  Gotta love it when prizes happen.  Go to the OCL blog for the sketch challenge listed for this week.

This card uses images from 'Lifes a Picnic' and 'Sunshine Cheer'.  Copics for coloring, memento inks for the background and the edges.  Papers were all from my stash, and the ribbon from Michaels.  Nesties for the background shape.  The images and sentiments are raised on pop dots.
These are a couple of OCL's most versatile (and my favorite) image sets.

Can't stop now! LOL - Create with TLC sentiments

Started carding, mostly left handed but to much fun to stop.  I got several sentiments from Create with TLC yesterday.  Two go with Bugaboo stamps and one with a Dustin Pike image (lets see if you can tell which is which LOL).  Paulette at TLC is amazing and gives away several digital images and/or sentiments everyday.  She also gives chances to win her store products as she introduces them.  Very generous lady.  Please visit and support her site.  Below are my examples of her sentiments in use.
Copics, scrap paper, embellies from my stash and nesties were all used,

Doodle Dragon Studios

This is the second card I have made since breaking my right hand and having surgery.  Most of the work is left handed but I couldn't not craft any more!  This is my entry to the Friendship challenge.
On apple green cardstock, embossed in my big shot and lightly inked with adirondack white ink.  The image, of course is from Dustin Pike and the sentiment is from TLC.  The ribbon and flower from my stash.  The bling on the sentiment are called 'inky, dinky dots' from inkspirations.  The coloring was done with copics.  (Very slowly and somewhat sloppily due to my hand). 
Great fun to work with any of Dustins images, they have a life of their own!

Left handed crafting----Ugh

Knew I wouldn't be able to not craft for the month it would take to get the pin out of my hand!  LOL.  O well, this is my first and only entry this month into the Our Craft Lounge weekly contest.  They have a great sketch at their blog along with sneak peaks from CHA this week.  Go by and visit them HERE and see the new releases that are coming out. 
My entry for this week uses the 'fishing with dad' silhoutte set.  Love it!
The white cardstock was inked with memento inks.  The images stamped with memento tuxedo black.  Copics and my white gel pen make the ripples in the water and color the fish.  The fish is covered with diamond glaze and raised on pop dots.  The pic is mounted on black cardstock edged with my ek punch and faux stitching.  It was finished off with twine and a sentiment.  All are mounted on a plain cranberry cardstock card.
Pretty card but fairly simple with the inking and silhoutte stamps.
