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

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. 

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 30th June 2020

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

I chose to use some 3D decoupage this week from docrafts Papermania “On Safari” range. I layered up the image with Pinflair glue gel, stamped a sentiment from the Stamp Addicts new clear wavy Sentiments stamps. Behind the image I’ve also added a branch which I had lying around. I split this in two to come out from both sides of the image. I felt in proportion with was more like a tree than a branch.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 7th April 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD). Our sponsor this time is Doctor digi house of stamps and Bugaboo.

This first card is using Quackers from Doctor digi house of stamps.

I love these birds. I’ve used them before. This time I colored them with my Conte water colour pencils I’ve had since the 1980’s. They are still going strong despite their age, just like me! I embossed a branch, coloured it with distress inks and the fussy cut it out and used this as a branch to put the bird in on the bold backing paper from papermania. I absolutely love it and this is the card I just gave to my best friend for her birthday!

The second card I’ve made here is using JJ 29 again from Bugaboo.

Again this is an image I’ve used before too. I used it for my mums birthday and it’s one I’m sure I’ll use again. I have used a different colour pallet this time, colouring this with the following Chameleon pens (BL7, BL4, NU2, NU1, PK3, PK4, VO2, BV2, NU00). I mounted this onto a background I made with my gelli plate and a patterned paper sheet from a papermania paper pad that I’ve had forever!

I hope that you like these two digital stamps as much as I do and that you’ll head over and grab them to add to your stash!

Such a cute image. The sun was out this weekend while I was colouring this image hence why I think I went for a yellow theme! I used my Chameleon pens (YL2, NU00, YO2, BR1, WG3, GR1, NG4, YO3, GR2, VO2, NU2, BV2, BL2) to colour her in. I then stamped the sentiment at the base of this topper and extended the line to either side to form a border around the topper. I then also edged the topper with distress inks mustard seed and shabby shutters.

In the current situation I hope that you are all finding respite in your lockdown via craft, and I hope that we can all be over this soon.

Happy crafting!
