TTCRD anything goes challenge – 17th November 2020

I’ve been crafting to keep myself occupied recently which is helpful to take my mind of life. So this challenge is using an imaged from our sponsor this time is Colour of Love. Join us at Through the craft room door (TTCRD) and lets see what you can do. It’s always lovely to see your creations.

I coloured the image with chameleon pens, kept the image the focal point by adding a gold mat, but felt that the papers set off the colour combination.

CRAFT challenge #576 – tags

Another day another challenge! This weeks CRAFT challenge is tags and I’ve chosen to make this a Christmas tag.

The cute Hootie pair are a digital stamp from Crafty Sentiments and I’ve coloured the image with watercolour pencils. Stamped the postmark around the image and added some distress ink around the edges.

CRAFT challenge #575 – Gift box/bag

To think that this was a few pieces of white 300gsm cardstock! It’s amazing what you can achieve with a few stamps and some distress inks. I used both stamp sets from the Indigoblu box sets that have been out and I’m so pleased with the results. The cutting file allows you to make a tall box like this or a smaller box (but could be adjusted to make something in between as well). I chose to make the larger one to challenge myself. I cut all of the pieces and stamped them flat before construction. 

I hope that this might inspire you as well to create any occasion boxes!

Thank you for looking at my blog post and I hope that you will leave a comment.

I printed out this digital image and coloured it with Chameleon pens (NU00, RD2, RD4, GR1, GR2, NG4, BK4, WG7, PK3, CG5, N2). If you’ve not tried them they are lovely to work with. I cut the image out leaving a border around the edge and mounted it onto two mats. I knew I had a paper pack with a cat theme so I found this out and added this into the background with a sentiment.

I look forward to reading your comments.

CRAFT challenge #574 – Memories

This weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on! Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

This cute little guy is thinking about someone which to me made me think of a memory that they had hence why I chose it. It’s coloured with Chameleon pens (GR2, GR1, BV2, BL2, NG4, YO3, BL3, VO2). The coloured image has been matted and layered for quite a CAS card.
