New Challenge! New Place!

Hello, everyone! A little change to the SBS challenges has occurred. The Design Teams for the Simply Challenged Challenges Blog and the Simply Steampunk Challenges Blog have been combined into one team and the Simply Challenged Challenges Blog has been discontinued. The DT members will be taking turns (in two different teams) on the challenges over at the Steampunk Challenges Site and work together to bring you new releases from SBS. Pretty exciting for me, since I happen to love coloring the Steampunk images so much!

So stick with me as I adjust to the change; won't be too different. And stop by regularly to see what I, and the rest of the DT has is store for you!

Go to the Simply Steampunk Challenges Blog for all the details. Here are some of them:

Challenges will now start on the 10th of each month. 
Winners are announced when the next Challenge begins.. you may enter as many times as you like, BUT each entry must be new and follow the rules of the challenge. 
you MUST use a Steampunk image.


 The DT is using The Roberts Portraits
okay everyone ready for a new Challenge? 
Make it Lacy, join in and have fun!
Winner will get 1 Steampunk image of choice,
MUST have 5 entries for the Challenge to get a prize. 


Here is what I came up with using the Mr. Roberts Portrait from the collection:

For this card, I colored the image with Copics and used the "no lines" stamping technique. After I colored Mr. Roberts in I added an outline to the raven behind him and "stars" to the background, using a white Faber-Castell marker then going over them with more FC markers in various colors. The papers are from DCWV and the clocks are some transparencies I had in a box. I also added some dark red lace, tiny staples (with a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher), and Liquid Pearls. 

Thank you for stopping by! Make sure to check out  Team A DT's blogs, and let me know if you decide to enter the challenge!

Zombie! --- Zombie Bride That Is.

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a magnificent 4th of July! I'm here today to share an image from Simply B Stamps for a new release. Betty is releasing to adorable and fantastic images with word art. The word art is created by Christian, Betty's son and this whole line will be a collaboration with him, with Zombie Betty as the mascot. Go visit the SBS Blog so you can get all the details.

Due to time constraints, I only got to create with one of these awesome images, BUT it was a whole lot of fun. So check it out!

This one here is Till Death Betty Oval. This helps focus on what a lovely bride she is!

This one here is a combination of Zombie Bride Betty, some word art, and the coffin that comes in the set. Really had fun with the graffiti word art! Wish you could really see how bright it came out in real life.

This is Till Death Zombie Bride Betty. She comes with the word art already attached.

Go check out the rest of the SBS DT Blogs, to see both images and all the amazing varied creations they made: Here's a list to make it easy for you.
