TTCRD anything goes challenge – 5th October 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Ike’s Art. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I created my card using the following:

KLM Sunflower cups digital image

A4 white 300gsm base card

Chameleon pens (BR1, WG3, NU1, NU3, YO3, YO2)

Matte gold mats

Blue paper for the background

Tacky glue

The image I chose to use was these lovely cups along with the sentiment about friends. Friends often meet for coffee or tea so this felt like a card I would send to a friend to let them know I was around by writing we should meet for a catch up coffee (even though I don’t drink coffee).

I coloured the cups and tried to give them some texture as if they were stoneware cups. Then I cut out the cups and mounted them onto a blue mat as I felt this was a good contrast colour. Next I added a matte gold mat to both the image mat and the sentiment bringing things together.

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.


TTCRD Anything goes challenge – 19th November 2019

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD).

Our sponsor this time is KLM Digital Designs and the prize is a $10 gift certificate.

I coloured the cute gnome with Chameleon pens and gave him a frame but using a Tattered Lace harvest themed die. I had to extend the die cut as it wasn’t large enough to go around the image so I cut it out twice and joined it together at the sides. The part I cut out from the bottom of the top piece I used to decoupage the pumpkins at the bottom of the frame.

I then coloured the base card with distress oxide inks and stamped a tree stamp, from Stampers anonymous “Regal findings CMS014” set, at different angles to give the impression of texture to the background.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
