Motorcycles and More Motorcycles





I've recently gotten into making motorcycle and Harley Davidson cards because there are some enthusiasts in town who have asked for them. This is just the first batch and I'm sure I'll be making more. I won't go into all the details for the cards but feel free to ask if you want any specific information.

Thanks for stopping by!

Goth Tween

There are more new Tweens being released over at Digi's With Attitude! and this is Goth Tween. I was never in to goth but I really like this image and it was fun to color. I wanted her skin to be really pale so I used my lightest skin tone and didn't do much shading on her face. Of course there's a lot of black but I wanted a touch of another color and I love the turquoise/black combination.

I colored the image with Copics and the DP is digi paper from DesignerDigitals. The ribbon is from my stash and originally had white stitches but I colored it with a Copic to match the DP.

The challenge this week is to use a digital image of a person. Easy peasy, right?! You can join in the challenge HERE and purchase the images HERE. Be sure to join us for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Digi's With Attitude! store.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - two patterned papers

Rain, Rain Go Away


This week the challenge over at the Digi's With Attitude! challenge blog is to create raindrops. Isn't this image of the poor little cat caught in the rain precious?! You can purchase the image HERE. While you're there, check out the new Tweens images. They've got attitude all their own!

The DP and raindrop outline were all purchased at DesignerDigitals. I added text inside the raindrop on my computer. The image was colored with Copics. I popped up the front part of the umbrella for some dimension.

You can really let your imagination go on this one. One of the DT members created a raindrop shaped card, another member made several raindrops and had them raining down on the cat, etc. Let your imagination go and come join us HERE.

Shades of Purple

The challenge this week at StampInsanity is to pick your favorite color and create a project using only shades of that color (and white is allowed, too). One of my favorite colors is purple so I decided to create my card in shades of purple.

Amazingly there is absolutely no coloring on this card! My poor, neglected Copics. The sentiment is from StampInsanity and you can purchase it HERE. The DP is Papermania and the cardstock is Stampin' Up! I received both the ribbon and the pin from contests I won.

This is your chance to really bask in your favorite color so be sure to join us this week. You can find the challenge HERE. Please also check out the rest of the Ward 2 DT through the links on my sidebar.

Harley Woman

I've gotten a number of commissions lately for Harley Davidson themed cards and, let me tell you, it's not very easy to find Harley related items for crafting! This image is from Kenny K and looks like a biker chick to me. The request was for a biker babe with red hair.

I created the DP using a Harley logo I got online because there is absolutely no Harley paper out there anymore. I colored the image with Copics of course and covered her boots and glasses in Glass Effects Gel from Viva Decor to make them look shiny.

You'll be seeing many more Harley projects from me!

Rock On!


Welcome to another challenge on the Digi's With Attitude! challenge blog! This time we want to see some green and black on your cards. I must admit I don't usually use a whole lot of green on my cards so this was a fun challenge for me. And what's not to love when you can color hair and lipstick green!

I colored my image with Copics and used Papertrey Ink DP in black polka dot. The green cardstock is from my stash. I didn't have any green ribbon that was the right shade so I colored white ribbon with a Copic - it's a fun and easy way to get matching ribbon.

If you want this adorable digi stop by the shop HERE. This is one of the new 'Tweens with Attitude that are available now. Be sure to stop by the challenge blog and enter this week's challenge HERE.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
AiFactory - Anything goes

Hardcore Hardware

The challenge over on the StampInsanity challenge blog is Hardcore Hardware. I'll admit, this is stepping outside my comfort zone but I had a good time with it. I didn't add a lot of hardware but I have some staples and a paperclip so that counts!

I colored the image with Copics and distressed the heck out of DP from my stash. I wanted this to be a card that could be given to a man so I didn't add a lot of embellishments. Plus I didn't think ribbon or flowers really went with the staples!

It's a really fun challenge this week so make sure you stop over to the challenge blog HERE and play along. If you want to purchase this stamp (Zeke) you can go HERE. Be sure to check out the other members of Ward B for more inspiration! Their links can be found on my sidebar.

I'm entering this card in Phindy's Challenge which calls for distressing.
