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.

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.
This is my first DT card for TTCRD this year and it’s such a lovely image to work with.
So this challenge is using an image from our sponsor this Colour of Love. Join us at Through the craft room door (TTCRD) and lets see what you can do. It’s always lovely to see your creations and remember our challenges are always “anything goes – ATG”.
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’ve been crafting to keep myself occupied recently which is helpful to take my mind of life. So this challenge is using an imaged from our sponsor this time is Colour of Love. Join us at Through the craft room door (TTCRD) and lets see what you can do. It’s always lovely to see your creations.
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.
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
I love this image, so many lovely colours. I used my Chameleon pens (OR3, OR4, YO3, YL2, GR3, BL3, NU1, NU2, BV4, BL6, RD4, RD2, PK3, PK5, GR1, PR4, BL2, NG4, YG3, VO4) to colour the image and then did some simple mats to showcase the image. I felt it was a bold image and it stood out and it didn’t need any distractions.
