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 – 29th June 2021

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

I coloured in the tulips with colouring pencils and added a little hint of distress ink around the edge of the topper that I cut along with the mat from torn edge squares. The mat I created from a brusho background on watercolour paper which I had created in the past on one of my making days. You crafters will know what I mean, we all have those days where we make far too many backgrounds and then did them out every so often when we rediscover them!

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

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 #601

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is for an easel card and our sponsor this week is ADU.

I chose this cute image and used coloured pencils to colour it. I then decided to frame the image with a CCW die which I’ve not used yet. It’s a really lovely sized die which frames the image well and is shown off well with the deep red card complimenting the red in the flowers.

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

CRAFT challenge #596

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge our sponsor this week is Morgan’s Art World.

I’ve used this image before and love it so I chose to use it again, this time with pinks! The image was coloured with Chameleon pens and the for the background I’ve used a Santangle stencil, a snow word stamp and some distress oxide inks.

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

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!

CRAFT challenge #594

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

The theme of this weeks challenge is “inspired by a book”.

My inspiration was from a childhood book, and I’m guessing you can tell which one – the hungry caterpillar! Such a colourful and memorable book that I wanted to use that theme of colour too. The sentiment also works well I think…. I hope you like it.

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

CRAFT challenge #588 – Inspired by a movie

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge. The sponsor for this challenge is Eureka.

When my kids were little we watched the High School Musical movies and this imagine bought those memories flooding back! The songs were favourites and gave us hours of pleasure while they were growing up.

The image is “Cheerleader” from Eureka and the music stamp in the background is one from Stamp Addicts.

Let’s see what you can do!

The Ultimate Remote

The remote is something I think a lot of men would like! Can you imagine if they could order beer and pizza by clicking a remote? I guess it’s not far off society today when we can order food online!
