I hope that you all had a good break over the holidays. I know that I’ve been productive creating samples for the design teams I’m a member of. This post includes the first of those

The sponsor for the CRAFT challenge #623 is QKR Stampede and the theme is New. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

The image has been coloured with Chameleon pens.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • White 5×7 scallop edged 300gsm base card
  • Digital image
  • Chameleon pens (NG4, YO3, YO2, GR1, GR2, YG3, BL3, WG3, BR2, BL4, BV2)
  • Leaf print backing paper from CCW
  • Black die cut letters

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.
