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!

CRAFT challenge #585 – Love/Valentines

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on for one week and the theme for this challenge is Love/Valentines. The sponsors for this challenge are All Dressed Up.

This gorgeous girl is coloured with Chameleon pens (NU1, PK2, NU00, NG4, PK3, GR1, NU2, BR1, WG3) and Nuvo pen 487. I felt the sentiment stamp “all you need is love” summed up the love/Valentine theme for this challenge. I rounded the corners of my topper and inked it in a toning colour, rounded the corners of the silver mat and mounted it onto a floral card to set off the flowers in her hair.

Let’s see what creations you come up with – there are always some fabulous ideas out there. Good luck!

CRAFT challenge #583 – New

Welcome to the second challenge for 2021 at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on for one week and the theme for this challenge is “New”. The sponsors for this challenge are QKR Stampede.

As you can see my “New” is new home. I coloured the two houses in the image with Chameleon pens and then used watercolour pencils to create the background. I used the distressed alphabet stamps from Stamp Addicts to stamp the “New Home” sentiment, and some distress oxides to ink around the edges and add a stencilled background onto the base card.

What’s new for you at the moment. My new in my life is my new job which I started 2 weeks ago. Drop me a comment and let me know!

I am entering this into the QKR Stampede challenge #412

Bartlett Pears digital image

The digital image has been coloured with watercolour pencils. Then around the image I have added some pencil shading and used a paper stump to blend the pencil adding a border around the image. I have then use the Pumice Stone distress oxide ink to add an inked border around the topper and also dragged across the linen base card.

I don’t know about you but I wanted to choose something totally non Christmas related and different for this ATG challenge, so let’s see your creations.!
