Show your Team Spirit!!!

Its all about Team Spirit here today at Meljen Designs!
We have a new Challenge starting and the theme is Team Spirit!
Now, you can create anything with Team Spirit but I am not much of a sports kind of girl so I had a bit of trouble with this one! SO, I decided that being from Toronto I would HAVE to use the team colours of the Toronto Maple Leafs...Blue and White!
 I know my finished product is NOT hockey or sports related but I think it has spirit and it is the right colors!

The image I chose is called: Garden Bun Bun Fairy 
I paired it with papers, ribbon and twine from SU and coloured the image with Copic markers.
Join us is this weeks Challenge and bring on the spirit!

Fun Friday Challenge at YNS today!

Good Morning! Today marks the new Fun Friday Your Next Stamp Challenge No. 5!
You have the choice to play along with the sketch, or the colour challenge,
 or draw your inspiration from both!


Here is my Fun Friday Card!
For my card I chose to do a combination of the colour and sketch theme! I used black and blue coloured papers and the stamp set called: Flower for You
I coloured the image with Copic markers and finished it off with some pink Gumdrops. (Which I am secretly addicted too!)

On my second card I also used the stamp set called: Sweet and Cool. Here I stamped the images, coloured the sticks, and then masked/inked around the image. I stamped additional hearts onto patterned papers and then popped them up as well with foam squares.
