CRAFT challenge #569 – Wedding Anniversary

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

This digital image made me smile. It makes me think that some people are made to be together and work together. These love birds certainly seem to be working together.

I’ve coloured this image with Chameleon pens and then added a stamped sentiment and stamped corner flourish. I cut the topper to fit onto a scalloped DL card blank and rounded the corners. With the mauve chameleon pen I edged the topper to give it a little bit of definition.

I hope that you like this pretty card, and I hope the special couple like it too.

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.

I hope you’ll join out challenge thank you for looking x

sweet

I love this image, so many lovely colours. I used my Chameleon pens (OR3, OR4, YO3, YL2, GR3, BL3, NU1, NU2, BV4, BL6, RD4, RD2, PK3, PK5, GR1, PR4, BL2, NG4, YG3, VO4) to colour the image and then did some simple mats to showcase the image. I felt it was a bold image and it stood out and it didn’t need any distractions. 

CRAFT challenge #561 – Shabby Chic

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is All Dressed Up.

I loved this typewriter when I saw it, so I was really pleased to work with it. The typewriter image has been coloured with Chameleon pens, I’ve made the flowers to tone in with everything and added some leaves and the lacey background.

I hope you like my card and that you come and join the challenge.

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.

For this I’ve coloured the cake with Chameleon pens (VO2, NU0, YL2, RD4, YO2, BL3, PK3, RD2, YO3, GR2, GR4). Of course the cake has a cherry on top! I chose a backing paper paper from Papermania which had cupcakes on it. I mounted this on a green mat and used the same paper to make a lacy overlay.

again this was coloured with pencil crayons.

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. I added this to a tag I’d cut out which I’d stamped onto and the laid die cut leaves onto. I cut a hole, painted A sealing layer over the whole thing and threaded ribbon through the tag.
