Make A Picture

Make a Picture Challenge #18

Hi Everybody! 

Today I bring you a cute little girl from Bugaboo Stamps who is our sponsor this week for Scrapbook Blessings Club. 7 wonderful digital stamps goes to the winner of this new challenge. The challenge that the team took on was to make a picture for your background. This is something I had never done with inks before and it was so much fun (love the chance to get a little messy!)! 

I also got to play with my Spectrum Noir markers. I have heard how wonderful they are and when I ran out of ink in my skin tones for my promarkers I decided to make the switch. One of the selling points for me is that the Spectrum Noir markers are refillable and you can now get a brush tip end if you choose to and you can replace whichever end you wish (I plan to replace the chisel tip end since I don't ever use that side). 

Alrighta roony onto the card...and heeere she is!

So here is the tutorial that I watched for the technique if you would like to check it out, I have since watched several more of her videos and I think I might be hooked now.


  • white card stock paper ( Georgia Pacific, I made a card front in case the inking had to be redone.)
  • inks and sponge (I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in China Blue for the sky and Tea Dye for the ground)  one thing I would note is make sure you do your ground dyeing before you stick anything down, I was so focused on making sure that she was actually sitting on the bench that I missed a whole step!) 
  • cut out the clouds from white cards stock paper using my Slice machine and the Zootopia card
  •  the bench is a die cut from La La Land Crafts which I cut out using my Big Kick
  • the image is from Bugaboo Stamps colored with Letraset Promarkers and Spectum Noir markers
  • I used my Xyron adhesive machine (I have the small purple one) to run the image through and make a sticker out of it
  • once I had stuck the image to the bench I used Mono multi adhesive from Tombow to glue the bench down
  • used ATG Gun to adhere the card front to the base of the card
  • not sure where the Hello sentiment stamp came from it was in my stash and I acquired it back before I was in the habit of trying to put down what I used...sorry 
So let us see what you've been up to and if you are looking for a little inspiration check out the tutorial video I for one will making a few more in the future! If you are looking for a new digi stamp head on over to Bugaboo Stamps they are having a 25% SALE off all of their EASTER STAMPS!!!
