Love is in the air

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for another DT challenge.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #652 is All Dressed Up (ADU). The theme this week is “Anniversary/Wedding”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I created a background on the base card just using gesso and on top of this added a backing paper which was again blue, but not what you would imagine of a sky. Under the hot air balloon I added some silver thread as well as every cloud has a silver lining.

The hot air balloon was coloured with pencils, but in vibrant colours, and I fussy cut it out so that it was floating in the sky.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image from ADU
  • Pencils
  • High tack glue
  • Card base – 300gsm
  • Gesso
  • Silver thread
  • Blue patterned background paper

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments.

Winter vibes

We are now into February, where has the last month gone?

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #625 is ,All Dressed Up (ADU) and the theme is Winter. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

  • Pink heavyweight paper
  • Digital image
  • Chameleon pens
  • Die cut snowflakes
  • Snowflake aperture die

For this card I stamped the text background stamp onto the base card. I also cut a piece of pink paper to mat onto the base card, and out of this I cut a snowflake aperture.
