TTCRD anything goes challenge – 5th October 2021

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

I created my card using the following:

KLM Sunflower cups digital image

A4 white 300gsm base card

Chameleon pens (BR1, WG3, NU1, NU3, YO3, YO2)

Matte gold mats

Blue paper for the background

Tacky glue

The image I chose to use was these lovely cups along with the sentiment about friends. Friends often meet for coffee or tea so this felt like a card I would send to a friend to let them know I was around by writing we should meet for a catch up coffee (even though I don’t drink coffee).

I coloured the cups and tried to give them some texture as if they were stoneware cups. Then I cut out the cups and mounted them onto a blue mat as I felt this was a good contrast colour. Next I added a matte gold mat to both the image mat and the sentiment bringing things together.

As always, I hope that you like the card. It’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment. Thank you.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 21st September 2021

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

I created my card using the following:

Ike’s Art heart postbox digital image

A4 pink and white polka dot 300gsm card

Chameleon pens (RD4, NU1, PK3, PK2, PK4, VO2, PL5, RD2)

Distress oxide inks – Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry

Studio light ticket stamp and die set

Tattered lace starburst ovals

Leaf die

Fuchsia pink paper

Sparkly cream 240gsm card from pink frog

Gems

Paper trimmer

Anita tacky glue

The image I chose to use was this lovely postbox. With the hearts on it, it screamed anniversary to me and love, hence why I coloured it in red and pink Chameleon pens.

I recently picked up the ticket cutting die and decided that I wanted to team these up with the postbox image. I die cut 3 of these, created a background with some Victorian Velvet distress oxide ink then stamped with picked raspberry using some of the stamps from that set and others from another set. I mean it’s great to mix and match your stash isn’t it!

I cut out the starburst ovals but also kept the centre and used a pick up technique, with the distress oxide picked raspberry ink, to colour this mat. Next cutting out a few of the leaves too.

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

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 7th September 2021

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

I’m using an image called Autumn Breeze. The windswept girl comes with a backing paper and I’ve chosen to reduce the size of her so that I could add a sentiment to the blank space. I have also inked around the outside of the image with some distress oxide inks and over stamped with some text in a pale colour to add a little more age and texture.

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

I coloured in the tulips with colouring pencils and added a little hint of distress ink around the edge of the topper that I cut along with the mat from torn edge squares. The mat I created from a brusho background on watercolour paper which I had created in the past on one of my making days. You crafters will know what I mean, we all have those days where we make far too many backgrounds and then did them out every so often when we rediscover them!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.
