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!

Zebras

I love these zebras. They are part of the African Safari stamps collection along with the Square Postage Frame stamp both from Judikins, and the stamps are produced by Stamp Addicts.

This subtle colouring is achieved with distress inks shabby shutters, dried marigold, picked raspberry and fossilized amber. I masked the outer postage frame and the zebras so the the white stripes remained but the beautiful sky could be made. A while back I did some marbling and I created the background on the card which I thought was perfect to fit with these stamps. To complete the card I added the sentiment “Just for you”.

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!

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.

Design Team cards for Stamp Addicts – using Harmony by Sherry West

These are 3 of the cards I made using Harmony for my first time as a DT member for Stamp Addicts. I was sent 4 stamps to create cards and this is one of the stamps, see my other posts to look at the other cards I created which were featured on Hochanda on Friday 7th February 2020 at 7pm.

1.

This is the first card of three I made with Harmony. She was coloured with Chameleon pens (NU00, NU2, NU3, NU1, CG5, CG8, BL2, NG4, BR1, WG3, GR1, VO2, BL3). The image was cutting out on my scan n cut machine and mounted onto some vellum with a gold honeycomb pattern. The stamps for the phrase “Dream” are from a Papermaina set “Bellissima” alphabet and were used with versamark ink and gold embossing powder. The base card was covered with some paper from a paper mania set. Finishing touches were done using a Sakura jelly roll gold pen.

2.

The second card was coloured with Chameleon pens (YO2, NU2, BR1, NU00, NG4, WG3, NU0) plus new touch markers (134 raw silk, 109 pearl white, 26 pastel peach, 132 milky white, 107 sand). The image was cut into a square topper, inked around the edge with Distress Oxide ink pumice stone, mounted onto black and a backing paper. Finally the sentiment “dare to dream” was added to the topper.

3.

The third card was again coloured with Chameleon pens (WG3, WG7, CG5, BR1, NU2, BL2, PK2, VO2, NU00, NG4). The image was again cut into a square topper and inked around the edge with Distress ink seedless preserves. A background was also stamped in the same ink with Elizabeth craft designs planner essentials – patterns1.

For the red one I used the following Chameleon pens – RD5, RD4, NU00, NU2, RD3, BR1, RD2, BR5, BR3.

Dream Valley Challenge #212 – Add a sentiment

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

I used Autumn Owlet for this challenge and added the stamped sentiment “Have a hoot on your birthday “.

After printing off this digital image I chose to colour it in with my Chameleon pens and then inked the background lightly with Antique linen distress ink just to take the whiteness away from being so harsh in the background.

I layered this up and made a card blank to fit from some centura pearl card. To finish I had a couple of feathers in my stash with similar colours which I made up some time ago, from a brusho and gold lacquer back ground, so I added these to the side for interest.

CRAFT challenge #523 – Inspiration Picture

I took inspiration from the flowers in the inspiration picture and I really liked this quote too. It was fun to colour with my chameleon pens and the blue background I added with the broken china distress ink.
