Dropping By With a Happy Hi

Not only did I want to shout out a happy "HI," but I also wanted to remind you of two things going on at Fresh Brewed Designs. First up is the rubber stamp sale - they're 25% off now till September 5th. I used the smaller size rubber stamp Caution Contents are Hot and sentiment found HERE. This card also serves to remind you of our Glitter Galore challenge currently going on. Not only did I glitter up her dress with Stickles, but the brads are also glittery. Find all the details along with the link for posting your projects HERE. One winner of this challenge will receive a guest designer spot for the month of October while the other winner will receive 3 digital images of their choice free!! We'd love to see what you create using glitter, but hurry, this challenge will end September 2nd.

Happy Halloween

How crazy does that sound?!!! Especially with it still being least for a little while longer. I wanted to remind you of our Buttons challenge going on HERE. My card uses one teeny tiny button on my bow!!! And the image is a rubber stamp (yes, I said a rubber stamp!!!) called Candy Corn Girl. How fun is she?!!! I simply love the spider clip in her hair! And that's saying a lot from a girl who absolutely HATES spiders!!! Hope you can join us for our buttons challenge here at the Fresh Brewed Blog.

August 9, 2014


OK, so I don't draw many male images... but when I
was sketching up my new mermaid digis, I decided they 
HAD to be made. I drew my not so skinny guy, Merlin, 
and then his companion, Myrtle. Then I decided to make a more
'handsome' merman. I always have a harder time drawing men, but
was happy with the way he came together. 

Marinus Digital Stamp - Fresh Brewed Designs

This digital stamp, Marinus, was colored with Copic and prismacolor makers 
then painted over with creative inspirations paint: fairy dust.

I do think this project would have looked better as a tag, 
but I ran out of time. :(
