Dream Valley Challenge #226 – Add Some Sparkle

Hello crafters, still hunkering down and crafting……

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is The Paper Shelter.

As the challenge was all about adding glitter, I glittered some of the hearts on the craft and silver background, and also glittered some of the beautiful image too.

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.

teapot

This flowers on this image were coloured with Chameleon pens GR2, GR1, and NU1 along with Touch New Sketch Markers 135 Pale Cherry Pink and 131 Skin White. The teapot itself was inked with Distress ink Tattered rose. I then cut out the teapot on my scan n cut machine. In my stash I had the Tattered Lace rose spray already made up and I felt that think coordinated and complemented the teapot so I used this with some Jane Nesteurenko paper in the background.

Dream Valley Challenge #219 – Hand coloured image

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. This week we could use images we had in our own stash.

The main focal image is by Stamps by me from the Thanks for everything A5 stamp collection. I stamped this onto one of the Tattered Lace nested note papers dies. I masked the flower I’d stamped and used distress oxidePumice stone to stamp with Elizabeth Craft Designs, planner essentials stamps patterns 2 and I also used the same ink to “smudge” the background a little and soften the background. The flower itself was coloured with Conte water colour pencils and a water brush. To finish I stamped around the backing paper and added a sentiment.

I hope you like my hand coloured card.

Dream Valley Challenge #218 – Love

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter and the theme is Love.

for this challenge the design team were all given one image. It’s amazing how many different creations come from one image. This hopefully gives you some inspiration to take an image and make it your own.

Dream Valley Challenge #217 – Spots and Dots

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

For this challenge I’ve chosen to use a combination of Spectrum Noir and Chameleon pens to colour this cute image. The Spectrum Noir pens I used were IG1, IG2, IG4, LV3, LV2, LV1, PL5, PL4, PL2 and the Chameleon pens I used were PK4, PK5, VO4, PR4. I’ve stamped a sentiment onto the corner of the image mat and then drawn some framing lines with a Zig pen. The image and the grey spotted mat are both matted onto black card and then the base card (which is also spotted).

Dream Valley Challenge #214 – Favourite colour combo

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

So for this challenge we were asked to use our favourite colour combo. As you can see my favourite colour combo is pink and purple (or blue and purple). It just depends on the day!

I coloured in this Polkadoodles digital image “heart on your sleeve” with my Chameleon pens. I’ve been wanting to use this die for a while and I knew I would need a background with a good contrast to the white 7×7″ 300gsm base card and also to the coloured mage. I inked this beautiful Spectrum Noir card with some Distress Oxide ink to tone it down so that it softened the harshness of the black. Then I buffed the background up with a dry baby wipe to bring out the glossy pattern and die cut the sentiment into it.

Dream Valley Challenge #212 – Add a sentiment

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

I used Autumn Owlet for this challenge and added the stamped sentiment “Have a hoot on your birthday “.

After printing off this digital image I chose to colour it in with my Chameleon pens and then inked the background lightly with Antique linen distress ink just to take the whiteness away from being so harsh in the background.

I layered this up and made a card blank to fit from some centura pearl card. To finish I had a couple of feathers in my stash with similar colours which I made up some time ago, from a brusho and gold lacquer back ground, so I added these to the side for interest.
