CRAFT challenge #519 – Thank you

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Paper Nest Dolls.

When I was making this card I felt that I wanted to make a background. Sometimes you just need to go with your creative flow! So I got some of my pots of cosmic shimmer in the colours that were in my image which I’d coloured with Chameleon pens and made several fabulous backgrounds. This card just uses one of them!

The Chameleon pens I used to colour this image were BL3, YO2, NU0, YO3, NU2, NU3, NU4, NU00, VO2, YL2, BR1, BR4, YG3.

The sentiment is one of the built in words from the CM900 which I cut out 3 times and layered up. The top layer of which I added some of the cosmic shimmer powders to. I love this way of building up the sentiment for more impact.


#202 Dream Valley challenge – only girls allowed

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge! Our sponsor for this challenge is Star Stampz.

I visited Stamp Addicts a couple of weeks ago and picked up these beautiful Cosmic shimmer shimmer shakers (colours by Phil Martin) so of course I had to try them out on a project! The colours are Cornflower Blue, Grass Green, Lush Pink and Heather Meadow. I shook some of the powders onto a piece of white card for the background and spritzed them with water which gave me this beautiful shimmery but subtle piece which I’ve stamped onto.

To colour the main image I tipped a small amount of the powders onto a tile and added a small amount of water to create a beautifully shimmering paint.

The sentiments are stamps I had in my stash which I’ve stamped Ranger archive ink (Jet Black) and using my Tim Holtz / Tonic stamping plate.

I’m really pleased with the result and I hope you enjoyed this project!
