Penguin

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #619 is JMC Designs and the theme is winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • White 300gsm A4 sheet cut, scored and folded to make a base card
  • JMC digital image
  • Die cut stamped sentiment
  • Tacky glue
  • White acrylic paint
  • Paper sheet from the Paper Tree, cut to shorten and overlay
  • ice Spruce ditresss oxide ink
  • Snowflake stamp

I coloured my sweet little penguin with Chameleon pens and cut her out on my scan n cut machine.

I then took the paper sheet from a The Paper Tree paper pad and cut it and then fussy cut around the items at the bottom of the sheet so that it could overlaid.

The stars were a little bit bold so I chose to cover the top part of the paper with a thin coat of white acrylic to knock back the colour slightly.

Once the paint was dry I used some iced spruce distress oxide ink to add some showflakes in the background, before layering the the papers back together and adding the cute penguin on top. I also inked around the paper rectangle before mounting this onto the base card and adding a snowflake and a gem!

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

  • Doctor Digi digital image “Quackers”
  • Chameleon pens
  • Tacky glue

Sparkly penguins!

Christmas isn’t far away now, and I know some of you will be thinking enough already, but actually I feel that after everything everyone has been through it will be nice if we can have a normal Christmas this year.

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #617 is ADU and the theme is Christmas. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

This is more of a contemporary Christmas card with the bright coloured hats and scarves and the dotty base card. I coloured this image with some coloured pencils this time as not everyone has fancy pens or watercolours so now and again it’s nice to show different colouring mediums.

The snow effect was achieved with some fake snow and also some glitter glue so there is some texture as well as sparkle.

So here’s a summary of the materials:

  • Grey and white polka dot 300gsm A4 sheet folded to make a base card and cut to size
  • All Dressed Up (ADU) penguins digital image
  • Colouring pencils
  • Iridescent glitter glue
  • Fake snow
  • Tacky glue
  • Black card as a mat, slightly larger than the focal image
  • Christmas Wishes sentiment

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

CRAFT challenge – #615

The sponsor for this challenge is Sweet n Sassy and the theme is Christmas – non traditional colours. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

The cute little mouse snuggled up into the hat was coloured with Chameleon pens and then given a bit of glitz and glam by adding glimmer powder. I cut the image out on my scan n cut and then worked on the background. I took my card blank and stamped in a versamark clear and added pink embossing powder. I then added some more glimmer dust into the winter themed background border stamp.

CRAFT challenge – #614

The sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art and the theme is Halloween/autumn/thanksgiving. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of this flower vase with the poisoned petunias. It is coloured with Chameleon pens and the background of the topper was then inked with Weathered wood distress oxide.

This was then mounted onto black card onto a kraft card blank

CRAFT challenge – #613

The sponsor for this challenge is Jan’s Digital Stamps and the theme is anything goes. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of this flower vase and this beautiful sentiment. The sentiment resonates, I think, after all of the lockdowns we have had over the last 18 months or so. Everyone has had their moments, but we have come through it and survived!

I coloured the image with chameleon pens and added some ink around the topper to help frame the image, but wanted to soften the block shape by adding some die cut borders. This was put onto a darker pink mat and all of this is added to a pink and white polka dot 300gsm base card.

CRAFT challenge – #612

The sponsor for this challenge is The Artsy Stamper and the theme is Grandparents. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of the flowers from the ‘Asters’ set. Replicated this within Inkscape to make a niche of flowers. Then I overlaid the sentiment and printed this into a 300gsm card base. Such a simple card once the image had been layered up.
