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.

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


CRAFT challenge #582 – ATG (anything goes)

Hi there crafters. Happy New Year!

The first challenge for 2021 at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on for two weeks and it’s an anything goes challenge. Life is nowhere near normal at the moment so I’m sure lots of you will like the time to craft and enter a project into our latest challenge. I hope it will allow you to think about your crafting and escape from reality for a while. The sponsors for our first challenge of the year are The Artsy Stamper Shop.

Bartlett Pears digital image

The digital image has been coloured with watercolour pencils. Then around the image I have added some pencil shading and used a paper stump to blend the pencil adding a border around the image. I have then use the Pumice Stone distress oxide ink to add an inked border around the topper and also dragged across the linen base card.

I don’t know about you but I wanted to choose something totally non Christmas related and different for this ATG challenge, so let’s see your creations.!
