Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 347 - For the Men

First, kudos to anyone that blogs from their phone. Here it is,time for another Tuesday Throwdown and I haven't resolved my lack of a computer yet. Thanks for staying with me during my phone blogging attempts.

I hope you join in the challenge, the theme this week is "for the men."

Our sponsor is Doctor Digi's House of Stamps (try saying that fast three times.) I am a  big fan of these stamps; they are a perfect avenue for those more sarcastic sentiments and outrageous colors we normally refrain from using.  Seriously, they make crafting soooo much fun.  Dr. Digi graciously provided me with Roadhog Rita and she was a hoot to do. Do yourself a favor and check out the shop!

The image is colored with Copics and a second piece of card stock was cut to shape and mounted to the backside to prevent the dreaded Copic "see through".  This was mounted slightly higher than the card fold but low enough it fits a regular envelope. The sentiment is from The Angel Company.

Here is Roadhog Rita, guaranteed to annoy any driver, not just men.

PIP Challenge 1724 June 12 - MHK Designs

Welcome to Monday and PIP challenge 1724. This is another anything goes and our sponsor is MHK Designs. Mynn kindly provided me Butterfly Elements to work with.

I selected the single butterfly and repeated the image two more times to make the border.  Resized and centered the sentiment.  Printed on craft paper and colored with pencils. The leaves are colored with a green glitter gel pen. Border punch is MS Petal Lace. Two pieces of Recollections glitter tape were added behind the punched area. One facing out and one facing the inside, for a nice finishing touch.

Here is my take on Butterfly Elements,  hope you enjoy as much as I  did in making.
