TTCRD anything goes challenge – 12th January 2020

This is my first DT card for TTCRD this year and it’s such a lovely image to work with.

So this challenge is using an image from our sponsor this Colour of Love. Join us at Through the craft room door (TTCRD) and lets see what you can do. It’s always lovely to see your creations and remember our challenges are always “anything goes – ATG”.

The image is coloured with Chameleon Pens (YL2, GR2, NG4, GR1, WG3, BR1, OL3, NU1, NU0, NU00, NU2, RD2, RD4, PK3, PK5) and then I shaded with a pencil and paper stub. The background of the card I used a stencil and some distress oxide ink onto Kraft card. The stencil is from Clarity Stamps.

CRAFT challenge #582 – ATG (anything goes)

Hi there crafters. Happy New Year!

The first challenge for 2021 at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on for two weeks and it’s an anything goes challenge. Life is nowhere near normal at the moment so I’m sure lots of you will like the time to craft and enter a project into our latest challenge. I hope it will allow you to think about your crafting and escape from reality for a while. The sponsors for our first challenge of the year are The Artsy Stamper Shop.

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.!

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 17th November 2020

I’ve been crafting to keep myself occupied recently which is helpful to take my mind of life. So this challenge is using an imaged from our sponsor this time is Colour of Love. Join us at Through the craft room door (TTCRD) and lets see what you can do. It’s always lovely to see your creations.

I coloured the image with chameleon pens, kept the image the focal point by adding a gold mat, but felt that the papers set off the colour combination.

CRAFT challenge #576 – tags

Another day another challenge! This weeks CRAFT challenge is tags and I’ve chosen to make this a Christmas tag.

The cute Hootie pair are a digital stamp from Crafty Sentiments and I’ve coloured the image with watercolour pencils. Stamped the postmark around the image and added some distress ink around the edges.

To think that this was a few pieces of white 300gsm cardstock! It’s amazing what you can achieve with a few stamps and some distress inks. I used both stamp sets from the Indigoblu box sets that have been out and I’m so pleased with the results. The cutting file allows you to make a tall box like this or a smaller box (but could be adjusted to make something in between as well). I chose to make the larger one to challenge myself. I cut all of the pieces and stamped them flat before construction. 

I hope that this might inspire you as well to create any occasion boxes!

Thank you for looking at my blog post and I hope that you will leave a comment.

I printed out this digital image and coloured it with Chameleon pens (NU00, RD2, RD4, GR1, GR2, NG4, BK4, WG7, PK3, CG5, N2). If you’ve not tried them they are lovely to work with. I cut the image out leaving a border around the edge and mounted it onto two mats. I knew I had a paper pack with a cat theme so I found this out and added this into the background with a sentiment.

I look forward to reading your comments.

CRAFT challenge #574 – Memories

This weeks challenge at Trimmies Craft Challenge is on! Our sponsor this time is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

This cute little guy is thinking about someone which to me made me think of a memory that they had hence why I chose it. It’s coloured with Chameleon pens (GR2, GR1, BV2, BL2, NG4, YO3, BL3, VO2). The coloured image has been matted and layered for quite a CAS card.
