Archiver's Crop, Night One

Hey, y'all!  Today was the first day of our 3-day crop at Archiver's, and we had a blast!  I made some new friends and got lots done.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish most of my projects because I forgot my papers at home.  Whoops!  I'll have to remember those tomorrow!  Here's what I've finished so far...

For this card I used a Sassy Studio Designs image.  I just think it's so sweet!  She was colored with Copics, then paper pieces  I think next time I will let the bows be the same color as the dress and shoes.  It looks better as a contrast, but let me tell you, it was a PitA to cut out!  LOL

Sassy Studio Designs: Paper Piecing
Cute Card Thursday: Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments Designs: Congratulations

This Easter card was created using a Simply B Stamp.  Isn't she adorable?  She was colored with Copics and a Spica marker. I also used my new nesting dies that I just LOVE.  (Plus, the eggs were made with a Spellbinders die.)  

Sweet Stamps: Easter
Crafts and Me: Light Airy Spring Colors

Paper Sundaes: Photo Inspiration

Ok, this next project was inspired by a challenge over at the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls.  They challenged us to take something cute and goth it up.  Here's my something cute:

I know it's a cruddy picture, but it really was cute, I promise.  It's a light tan, with dark brown, red and white accents.  Unfortunately, I forgot my memory card so I had to save the picture to my camera.  Then, when I got home, I realized that I didn't have a cord to connect my camera to my computer, so I had to take a picture of the picture on the camera with my phone and email it to myself.  I looked online, but unfortunately couldn't find the correct box.

Here's how I gothed it up:

My stamp is from Simply B Stamps.  She was colored using Copics. The papers are from DCWV's Immortal Love collection (red) and my stash (purple).  Flowers and bats are also from my stash.  The quote is one I absolutely love by Dean Koontz.  I can't remember what book it came from, but I've remembered it for YEARS.

Haunted Design House: Can I Quote You On That?
Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls: Alter It - Goth Up Those Cuties
Scrapbook Sisters: Anything Goes
Forever Night: Purple, Red and Black

Whew!  Quite a long post!  Thanks for sticking around 'til the end. =D  We'll see you all tomorrow with more projects (hopefully!).
