Crazy friends

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

The background paper is a background I made with brusho (terracotta and gamboge) that I had in my stash. I chose to print onto this background and colour the image with watercolour pencils.

I cut the background to fit a 5×7” card and inked around the edge with Festive Berries Distress Oxide. The sentiment is one I picked up recently and absolutely love. So I stamped this is black pigment ink and heat embossed this with clear powder. I then mounted the topper image I had created onto a rose gold metallic mat. I also had some metallic bits on my desk which just filled the space nicely to complete the card.

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • 300gsm card base
  • Image “Quackers” from Dr Digi
  • Brusho (terracotta and Gamboge)
  • Watercolour pencils
  • Metallic card and dots
  • Distress oxide ink (festive berries)

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.

I printed this image twice so great I could choose a couple of the elements to decoupage to give a bit of depth.

The background paper is some rice paper with some black soot distress oxide in the area under the image so that the image stands out from the background. I also added a strip of washi tape which is gold and tones in with the image.

The image has been coloured with distress oxide inks and some metallic pigment inks.

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • Kraft 300gsm card base
  • Image and sentiment from Twinkle Lane
  • Sheet music rice paper
  • Ink pads as pictured above
  • Musical gold washi tape

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 has been coloured with coloured pencils which I’m loving at the moment. I then added detail along the sides with a stitch effect die and inked around the edge of the topper. A sentiment was added into the speech bubble and to fill the gap I felt like the faither flower fitted in with the theme. If anything is possible you need to have faith don’t you?

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • White 300gsm card base
  • Image from Oddball Art Co
  • Sentiment from JMC stamps
  • Coloured pencils
  • Distress oxide ink
  • Flower “faith” die cut

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

The elephant has been coloured with an HB pencil and a paper stub and a pink coloured pencil. I die cut around the elephant and cut a mat in black so that it would stand out from the pink glittery background. Another mat and layer were also cut for the sentiment. As elephants are not supposed to forget I thought this would be a good sentiment to put on this card.

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • HB pencil
  • Paper stub
  • Pink glitter card
  • Black card to mat the topper image ans sentiment
  • Floral die cut x2 with distress oxide applied to it
  • Sentiment stamps
  • Black ink
  • Pink pencil crayon

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 sponsor for this challenge is Sheepski Design Digital Stamps. Each week we invite you to join us at the Through the craft room door blog, the theme is always anything goes!

The digital image I have chosen for this challenge is “Shopping in Yorkshire”. It has been coloured with Chameleon pens. I grounded the shopper and cut an apperture in the blue paper to frame the image. I mounted this onto aa kraft card base to draw out the brown paper bag that she is carrying in the image. Of course in Yorshire it would almost certainly be raining so her umbrella is out! I’ve added dots of glossy accents to the umbrella and also around her to try and emulate the rain.

Here is a summary of the materials:

  • 280gsm Kraft card 6″x6″ base
  • Chameleon pens (NG4, CH8, BK4, CG5, BV4, BL7, NU0, BR1, BL4, NU00, NU2)
  • Sheepski Designs “Shopping in Yorkshire” digital image
  • glossy accents

As always, I hope that you like the card and that this has inspired you to create something. It’s lovely to see that you’ve stopped by to leave a comment.

Thank you.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 19th October 2021

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 – 17th November 2020

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.
