CRAFT challenge – #614

The sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art and the theme is Halloween/autumn/thanksgiving. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I chose one of this flower vase with the poisoned petunias. It is coloured with Chameleon pens and the background of the topper was then inked with Weathered wood distress oxide.

This was then mounted onto black card onto a kraft card blank

As always it’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 15th June 2021

The sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Co. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

I made this backing paper using one of the flowers from the Oddball Art whimsical flower collection which has so many flowers in it. When there are large collections it’s sometimes hard to choose, but there are so many ways to use the images. I decided that just replicating and rotating one digital image and using distress inks to make a backing paper would be a different idea and went with that.

I hope to see your creations. Thank you for stopping by!

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 9th September 2020

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

big eyed mad hatter

This image was great fun to colour! I used my Chameleon pens and then found some distress inks which coordinated to make a background. The block stamp I’ve used in the background is one with a clock which I felt was appropriate and fitted with the mad hatter theme.

I hope you’ll join out challenge thank you for looking x

Dream Valley Challenge #208 – buttons and/or a bow

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge! Our sponsor this time is Oddball Art.

Buttons and a bow were needed for this challenge and I managed to use them! I chose the background paper first in this project and then used the coordinating colours from my Chameleon pens. I stamped the sentiment and inked around the edge with distress oxide ink. I stuck the girl to the side of the sentiment and mounted this slightly off centre so that my bow could go to the left of the image and the buttons to the right.

CRAFT challenge #522 – Christmas

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this week is Oddball Art.

Cute but mischievous comes to mind! Reminds me of my eldest daughter!! I love this sentiment.

She’s coloured with Chameleon pens. The background of the topper is tinted with broken china distress ink and layered onto a background I made with cosmic shimmer powders on black card. I die cut a snowflake flurry which I’ve also added to the card from glitter card. To cut this out I used some parchment paper so that the die cut released more easily and this fell onto the card giving a subtle reflection of the glitter die cut so I decided to stick this onto the card as well!

Hope you like it!

#196 Dream Valley – Sparkle and shine

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge! Our sponsor this week is Oddball Art Co.

I chose to water colour this digital image with some sparkle pens I have in my stash so that the sparkle theme was throughout.

You’ll hopefully see the sparkle from this close up!

I had the background paper in my stash from a pixie powder background making session I’d had last year. But as we know we keep these things until we have the right project that comes along. The mica in those powders is certainly sparkly and shiny too.

The ribbon I added to this project is yet another shiny element. I hope that you like the sparkle and shine here as I do.

#495 CRAFT challenge – New home/job/baby

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Co.

I chose to make a new home card with an image from Oddball Art. The mushroom houses felt like they needed to be in a magical mushroom wonderland, with twinkling vines and a mushroom covered floor at twilight. I stamped the silhouette mushrooms and grasses on the floor and the dangling vines in a back ink then added twinkles with a glitter pen and framed the image by drawing a glitter boarder around the edge of the midnight blue paper.

#471 CRAFT challenge – add ribbon and sparkle

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge, our sponsor this week is Oddball Art Co.

I recently bought a Sheena embossing folder and ran in through with some velum. I felt this would give a great backdrop to this image which I had coloured the image with my Chameleon pens. As this challenge was about ribbon and sparkle I used some of the crafters companion silver sparkle spray. I sprayed this over both the image and the velum so that they sparked and to add a little more sparkle I matted the velum onto silver sparkle card and added silver sparkle ribbon. I hope that you think that this is sparkly enough!!
