CRAFT challenge – #615

The sponsor for this challenge is Sweet n Sassy and the theme is Christmas – non traditional colours. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

The cute little mouse snuggled up into the hat was coloured with Chameleon pens and then given a bit of glitz and glam by adding glimmer powder. I cut the image out on my scan n cut and then worked on the background. I took my card blank and stamped in a versamark clear and added pink embossing powder. I then added some more glimmer dust into the winter themed background border stamp.

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

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 21st September 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:

Ike’s Art heart postbox digital image

A4 pink and white polka dot 300gsm card

Chameleon pens (RD4, NU1, PK3, PK2, PK4, VO2, PL5, RD2)

Distress oxide inks – Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry

Studio light ticket stamp and die set

Tattered lace starburst ovals

Leaf die

Fuchsia pink paper

Sparkly cream 240gsm card from pink frog

Gems

Paper trimmer

Anita tacky glue

The image I chose to use was this lovely postbox. With the hearts on it, it screamed anniversary to me and love, hence why I coloured it in red and pink Chameleon pens.

I recently picked up the ticket cutting die and decided that I wanted to team these up with the postbox image. I die cut 3 of these, created a background with some Victorian Velvet distress oxide ink then stamped with picked raspberry using some of the stamps from that set and others from another set. I mean it’s great to mix and match your stash isn’t it!

I cut out the starburst ovals but also kept the centre and used a pick up technique, with the distress oxide picked raspberry ink, to colour this mat. Next cutting out a few of the leaves too.

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

CRAFT challenge #605

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge the sponsor for this challenge is QKR Stampede.

This cute fella has been coloured with pencil crayons and a graphite pencil. I drew a doodle border around him to give some separation from the background stamp. The background stamp was stamped in versafine Clair ink. A couple of words were then highlighted by adding some distress ink onto them in red as well as the stars being coloured yellow. To finish off I mounted this onto black and red, then added it to a base card.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries, so let’s see what you can do!

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 15th June 2021

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

I made this backing paper using one of the flowers from the Oddball Art whimsical flower collection which has so many flowers in it. When there are large collections it’s sometimes hard to choose, but there are so many ways to use the images. I decided that just replicating and rotating one digital image and using distress inks to make a backing paper would be a different idea and went with that.

I hope to see your creations. Thank you for stopping by!

CRAFT challenge #595

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge the sponsor for this challenge is Crafty sentiments.

The theme of this weeks challenge is “recycling”.

With recycling in mind there is a whole heap of things you could do on your projects.

For this project I chose to use some old bubble wrap to make a background with distress inks. Plus the ribbon is from the packaging of a orchid I had for my birthday last week.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries, so let’s see what you can do!

big eyed mad hatter

This image was great fun to colour! I used my Chameleon pens and then found some distress inks which coordinated to make a background. The block stamp I’ve used in the background is one with a clock which I felt was appropriate and fitted with the mad hatter theme.

The Gin Bowl 4 – tag

Coloured with pencil crayons, I applied water around the bowl and tore the bowl out so that there was a ragged edge.
