I’m definitely Zelda.
I follow the rules when I drive (and bike!) and it makes me insane when other people don’t. Am I crazy? Probably. I get really crazy when drivers don’t watch out for bike riders. I’m always on guard. Sigh…that’s why I wear a full cranium cycling helmet that my kids say makes me look special and I wear the flashiest/brightest colored shirts I can find.
So, I broke down and bought a new bike last week…
I test drove a few bikes before “she” chose me like an Olivander’s wand!
That blue-green is one of my favorite colors and the fit was perfect! Now to give her a name…I kept my old bike, Esmeralda. She is more green. This color is a little more blue…I kinda like Bonnie Blue from Gone with the Wind. I like the way it sounds and you can say it fast too! Bonnie Bluuuuueee!
Today starts the new weekly challenge at Cupcake Inspirations and the theme is the World of Wizards and Witches!
Frantic Stamper is our sponsor this week and they are GENEROUSLY offering a $25 gift certificate, to our randomly chosen winner, to shop in their online store!
I had fun designing this spooky Halloween scene. The supplies used are listed in the captions below and convenient links are at the end of the post. I used some Strathmore Toned Tan medium surface sketch paper to create my background on. I really like the “tooth” of this paper, it really works well with colored pencils. They blend so easily on paper that is a little more textured and I think the colors are brighter than on smooth paper. I had to use my new Tim Holtz stamping platform to line up the stamp images and repeat stamping on the solid stamps. It worked like a dream! Look at the great coverage the Distress Oxide have when stamping on top of the other images!
JFF Rubber Stamps Flying Witch, Harvest Moon, Bats, and Collaged Row Houses. Club Scrap® cardstock. Strathmore Toned Tan medium surface sketch paper. Derwent colored pencils and Distress Oxide inks.
I used the the tiniest pop-up tab from Frantic Stamper’s Pop Up Card Bases Precision Dies set for the inside of my card.
And…have a look at what the rest of the Design Team Sweeties have created (blog roll below) and join the fun with a Wizards and Witches themed creation of your own on the Cupcake Inspirations blog!
