Two Blogger's Challenges!

We have been having BIG computer troubles here at our house, so I have not been able to post last week's Blogger's Challenge (Box or Bag) or anything else, for that matter...until now!! We just purchased a new computer and hopefully everything will be up and running for quite a long time now.

I picked up this little chipboard/wooden box at Michaels and covered it with some retired, Stampin' Up Pacific Point DSP. I added one of those sweet, digital Heather Ellis images that I colored up with my Copic markers (B0000, B00, B12, B14, E000, E01, E53, E55, E57, R20, R29, Y21, YR15, YG93, and YG95). My Nesties were used for the ovals and then a strip of Pacific Point ribbon helps tie the whole thing together. Here's a picture of the side of the box.

Now onto this week's challenge...green, white, and neutrals. This Heather Ellis image is actually part of the Pure Innocence line from My Favorite Things.


I used Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White Cardstock and Memento Ink for my image and then colored her skin, hair, and rain slicker with Copic Markers (E000, E01, R20, C0, E17, E25, E29, G40, and G82). I'm getting all of the practice that I can with these markers...lol! I did a little paper piecing with some retired Certainly Celery prints from Stampin' Up for the umbrella and boots and then I added a sentiment from A Muse Artstamps.

Thanks so much for visiting today, and thanks for hanging in there with me through all of these technical difficulties. As soon as I finish my dinner, I'll be off to check out what the other Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have been up to. Just click on the link in my right side bar if you want to join me. Have a lovely evening...Toodles! :D
