TTCRD anything goes challenge – 7th April 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is Doctor digi house of stamps and Bugaboo.

This first card is using Quackers from Doctor digi house of stamps.

I love these birds. I’ve used them before. This time I colored them with my Conte water colour pencils I’ve had since the 1980’s. They are still going strong despite their age, just like me! I embossed a branch, coloured it with distress inks and the fussy cut it out and used this as a branch to put the bird in on the bold backing paper from papermania. I absolutely love it and this is the card I just gave to my best friend for her birthday!

The second card I’ve made here is using JJ 29 again from Bugaboo.

Again this is an image I’ve used before too. I used it for my mums birthday and it’s one I’m sure I’ll use again. I have used a different colour pallet this time, colouring this with the following Chameleon pens (BL7, BL4, NU2, NU1, PK3, PK4, VO2, BV2, NU00). I mounted this onto a background I made with my gelli plate and a patterned paper sheet from a papermania paper pad that I’ve had forever!

I hope that you like these two digital stamps as much as I do and that you’ll head over and grab them to add to your stash!

Dream Valley Challenge #221 – Only boys allowed

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo Stamps.

For this challenge I have used my Chameleon pens (NG4, NG5, BL7, WG3, OL3, YG3, GR1, BR1, NU00, NU2, GR3) to colour this cheeky chappy. He looks at home playing in the dirt and with the bugs.

I’ve just used simple matting in layering to set this image off and added a stamped sentiment.

CRAFT challenge #533 – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Bonfire night

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo Stamps.

I really love this it’s kind of Halloween but subtle and the girl looks sassy! Sassy is a word my sister in law in Canada used to describe my youngest daughter and it’s stuck with me.

I used Chameleon pens to colour her and an old sizzix embossing plate which I ran through my cut n boss to emboss the cobweb background. I inked the embossed cobweb with some distress ink just to highlight and add interest. The same ink is what I’ve used around the edge of the image too before mounting it all up and adding the sentiment.

CRAFT challenge #523 – Inspiration Picture

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.

I took inspiration from the flowers in the inspiration picture and I really liked this quote too. It was fun to colour with my chameleon pens and the blue background I added with the broken china distress ink.

I would like to enter this into the PIP challenge 1929 – ATG

thank you for the honorable mention PIP!

#489 CRAFT challenge – Winter

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps.

For this winter challenge I chose to go Christmasy and chose the Christmas glass. All full of baubles to get the Christmas season started. I know I’m a little early but crafters need to start Christmas early otherwise we simply run out of time!

So for this card I chose to combine the glass with some of Chloe’s stamps and dies which I stamped, heat embossed and water-coloured. The glass I coloured with some sparkly pens and then added some glaze over the glass itself.

I mounted this all up to frame the image and set it off.
