Koala T Crafts Challenge for July - Twinkle Toes, "True Colors."

Each month Koala T Crafts will be holding challenges.

For July, the theme was Red, Blue or Stars.

I loved the movie, "Trolls" especially the music.
I grew up with Troll toys. I loved how cute they were and their crazy hair.
Sherri Baldy has done an excellent job at designing her version of the Trolls. Check it out below.

The sponsor was Sherri Baldy/ My Beasties.

I chose this cute digi called, "Twinkle Toes."
I colored her up using a lot of blue and red to go along with the theme.
 I used Prisma Colored Pencils for that.
I added ribbon, flowers, and gems to embellish it up.
I chose the sentiment, "Ice Cream Solves Everything" and added it to a lacy circle.
I even added blue Stickles to her toe nails just for fun.

Fairy Magic Some Odd Girl Challenge July

Rain has been welcomed to help put much-needed water in the ground.
It helps with wild fires provided lightning from the storm
doesn't touch the ground.

I colored this cutie because I think she is so cute and to enter her into the Some Odd Girl twist of water theme or blue/green colors theme July challenge.


The name of this digi is Fairy Magic.

I used Prisma colored pencils to color her.
I used paper and flowers from my stash.
Some of the flowers and lace were from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The dollies were cut from Cricut Design Space.

Christmas Butterfly Princess

Who doesn't love butterflies?
How about a butterfly tree decoration?
Many places and web sites are doing Christmas in July. 
Today I colored up Butterfly Princess-No Wings (Girl facing left) by Conie Fong.
I used Spectrum Noir ColorBlend pencils. I cut the butterfly, bent his wings, and cut a Christmas tree out of some scrap green card stock. I put the butterfly in the tree like it was an ornament. The girl is reaching out for the butterfly.


Hope you enjoy this cute digi stamp.

Water Fun from Some Odd Girl

What a fun digi stamp to color when it is sooooo hot outside.

Water Fun is from Some Odd Girl.

I added some cute puppies playing with the people in the stamp. I found them on Google Images.

I used Prisma Colored pencils to color up this fun.

I colored some white stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts blue and
glued them where the water is coming out of the water hose. I thought this added some cute dimension.
