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?)

CRAFT challenge #536 – make an embellishment

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is QKR Stampede.

I chose this cute fellow, I can imagine him floating down the river.

I’ve had this card blank cut and inked for a while, but what I wanted to put on it back then just didn’t fit. So when I came across it again this time around I felt it was appropriate.

Its a sliding easel card which folds flat (great for postage!).

I coloured this guy with my Chameleon pens and used some of the wet brusho to colour around the image mat, literally just by dragging it through the left overs. I didn’t waste the rest of the left over pigments either I made a background sheet for my stash.

So onto the embellishment which is what this weekends challenge was all about.

My embellishment was this dragonfly which I stamped, coloured with brusho and a spritz bottle. Once dry (you can use a heat gun to speed up the drying time) I cut him out and covered him in glossy accents. The glossy accents layer was quite thick so it curled the card slightly giving it some shape.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

PIP ATG 1946

LTCCB #40 ATG November challenge

Creative fingers challenge #175

CRAFT challenge #524 – Christmas

Come and join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge. Our sponsor this time is QKR Stampede.

I chose this cute stuffed reindeer for this Christmas challenge. As you may have seen before I like to make cards in colours that aren’t traditional Christmas colours. I wanted to use the backing paper I had so I chose Chameleon pens to compliment the backing paper. Normally I colour and try and find a backing paper, but this worked well as I wasn’t searching through hundreds of papers to find the right one!

I don’t know about you but I find that snowflakes are a staple that I keep to hand as I make Christmas cards throughout the year for design team challenges. I have a mini draw with the dies and flakes all ready to go. I can colour tint them or leave them white depending on the project.

I hope you liked my card, please leave a comment, and thank you for stopping by.
