CRAFT challenge #550 – Spring/Easter

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsors this time are QKR Stampede and Oddball Art. This image is one from QKR Stampede.

This is such a cute Easter bunny! I’ve coloured this digital image with Chameleon pens (NU1, NU2, NU00, YO2, YO3, GR1, GR2, VO2, NG4, WG7, WG3). I stamped out the Easter eggs and inked them in distress inks shabby shutters and mustard seed. I used the same inks to ink around the topper mat so that there wasn’t a stark white edge and the card blended into the base card background.

I’d like to enter this into the following challenge:

Crimbo Crackers – 207 – Animals (not Christmas, but festive?)

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 24th March 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is Hetty Clare.

Such a cute image. The sun was out this weekend while I was colouring this image hence why I think I went for a yellow theme! I used my Chameleon pens (YL2, NU00, YO2, BR1, WG3, GR1, NG4, YO3, GR2, VO2, NU2, BV2, BL2) to colour her in. I then stamped the sentiment at the base of this topper and extended the line to either side to form a border around the topper. I then also edged the topper with distress inks mustard seed and shabby shutters.

In the current situation I hope that you are all finding respite in your lockdown via craft, and I hope that we can all be over this soon.

Happy crafting!

CRAFT challenge #549 – ATG (extra added theme of Christmas animals)

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Jan’s digital stamps.

For this cute image I used Chameleon pens (BG4, YO2, YO3, RD5, BG3, VO2, CG5, PK5, PR4, BL3, RD4, YL2. nG4, BL6) along with Distress ink Mowed Lawn to colour around the mats. The background paper is one I picked up in The Works a little while ago, but I could just imagine that these mischievous penguins weren’t adhering to any ‘elf and safety rules!

I’d like to enter this into:

Dream Valley Challenge #221 – Only boys allowed

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo Stamps.

For this challenge I have used my Chameleon pens (NG4, NG5, BL7, WG3, OL3, YG3, GR1, BR1, NU00, NU2, GR3) to colour this cheeky chappy. He looks at home playing in the dirt and with the bugs.

I’ve just used simple matting in layering to set this image off and added a stamped sentiment.

CRAFT challenge #548 – Weather

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsors this time is Sheepski Designs.

For this challenge I used Chameleon pens (PK4, BL4, BV2, BL2, WG3, NU2, PK3, YO2, RD4, YO3, VO2, NG4, BL3, YL2, GR1, GR2, YG3, OR3, OR4) plus Distress inks Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass.

I chose to carry this into the inside of the card.

I split the sentiment into two so that it would flow from the front into the inside of the card. I felt this flowed since it was on the inside of the card!

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 10th March 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is LeAnn’s World 101.

teapot

This flowers on this image were coloured with Chameleon pens GR2, GR1, and NU1 along with Touch New Sketch Markers 135 Pale Cherry Pink and 131 Skin White. The teapot itself was inked with Distress ink Tattered rose. I then cut out the teapot on my scan n cut machine. In my stash I had the Tattered Lace rose spray already made up and I felt that think coordinated and complemented the teapot so I used this with some Jane Nesteurenko paper in the background.

CRAFT challenge #547 – Female

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Sweet n Sassy Stamps.

The image is coloured with Chameleon pens YL2, YO2, YO3, GR2, GR4 and inked to soften the Engels of the image mat with Distress Oxide Ink fossilized amber. I added to this by stamping a sentiment with Archival ink Jet black and drew a double wavy border around the topper to frame it. This was mounted onto yellow pastel Adorable scorable.

CRAFT challenge #545 – Christmas

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Doctor digi’s house of stamps.

This is a great image, quite quirky and modern and playful. I hope you like it too.

I simply coloured this image with pencil crayons and a Sakura gelly roll pen golden star. The image was matted and layered onto the base card and a coordinating paper and a simple die cut added, with gold card behind the “merry”.

CRAFT challenge #541 – New

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is Crafty Sentiments Designs.

The theme this time was “new” and although this image would conjure up thoughts of valentines I decided to make it in the theme of a new baby. This is such a cute image that it lends itself to a cute cuddly bear that a new baby would hug.

it is coloured with Chameleon pens (NU2, NU1, PK3, PK4, PK5, NG4, BL2) and Spectrum Noir pens (IG1, IG2, IG4, IG6, IG8, IG10).

Letters to form the phrase “New Baby” were die cut from a strip die I’ve had for ages. To tone in the die cut letters and the hearts which were cut from white card, I used a Versa Colour ink pad (152 Ash Rose).

The image mat was matted onto a background, both with their corners rounded, and these were matted onto the base card.

Dream Valley Challenge #217 – Spots and Dots

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. Our sponsor this time is Crafty Sentiments Designs.

For this challenge I’ve chosen to use a combination of Spectrum Noir and Chameleon pens to colour this cute image. The Spectrum Noir pens I used were IG1, IG2, IG4, LV3, LV2, LV1, PL5, PL4, PL2 and the Chameleon pens I used were PK4, PK5, VO4, PR4. I’ve stamped a sentiment onto the corner of the image mat and then drawn some framing lines with a Zig pen. The image and the grey spotted mat are both matted onto black card and then the base card (which is also spotted).
