Inspired by a song 🎵

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a good festive season however you celebrated. It’s now a new year full of new challenges and new inspiration! Hopefully you can take a look at older posts and find inspiration there too. Since this challenge is about being inspired it’s fitting that this is my first challenge for the year and has the theme “inspired by a song”.

So I chose the song “flowers” by Sweet Female Attitude and it is also my mums birthday this week so I chose this for her. She can’t have real flowers due to her allergies, but she does like them.

For the DT challenge this week the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #664 is All Dressed Up (ADU). The theme this week is “inspired by a song”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

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

  • Digital image
  • High tack glue
  • Base card – 300gsm
  • Coloured pencils
  • Backing paper
  • An edging die to add the border to the topped

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments. Please let me know whether this has inspired you!

The image has been coloured with coloured pencils which I’m loving at the moment. I then added detail along the sides with a stitch effect die and inked around the edge of the topper. A sentiment was added into the speech bubble and to fill the gap I felt like the faither flower fitted in with the theme. If anything is possible you need to have faith don’t you?

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • White 300gsm card base
  • Image from Oddball Art Co
  • Sentiment from JMC stamps
  • Coloured pencils
  • Distress oxide ink
  • Flower “faith” die cut

As always, I hope that you like the card. It’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

Dream Valley Challenge #229 – Christmas in July

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

For this card I’ve used stamps from Stamp Addicts – the bird and one of their wavy sentiments. I stamped the bird onto some tan coloured card, then watercolored and added some red and brown distress inks to colour him like a robin since this is a Christmas challenge. The background paper is one from Dovecraft.
