Good morning everyone. It's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog, and this week the challenge is "Get organised for Christmas" with the added challenge for the DT to make a shaped card.
So here is my make.
I have used the Dutch Doobadoo Shape art 4 to create the card shape and the matting and layering. The image, papers, sentiment and parcels are all from the Angelberry Christmas CD. The bells and spruce die cuts are from Tattered Lace. I have used the Dusty Concord distress ink around the edges of everything.
The pond: 7210, 7220, 7240, blender and the silver glitter shake pen
I started at the edges with the darkest colour and worked into the centre with the lightest. I them went over the middle with the blender pen to take some colour out and add swirls. I then added the glitter over the top to make it shimmer.
Good morning and happy Choosday to you all. I know I have been missing for a week or so, I am recovering from having my gall bladder removed just over a week ago so haven't been making anything until this pas few days. Hopefully all is good now and I am back into the swing of things!
I'm here today with this weeks DT make for Digi Choosday, and the challenge we have set this week is Blooms. Here is my make
The image is a old one from the Pretty Sweet CD remastered and brought up to date by Nikky Hall. You can now buy Amelia with Basket as a digi download here. The papers are from the CD. The image is coloured with my Graph'It Markers . The roses are made from the same papers. The dies I have used are from Sizzix. I have used a distress ink around the edges of the papers and added a black ink line.
Happy Choosday everyone. We have a new challenge for you at Digi Choosday today and it is, stitching, whether it be real or faux. I'm sure you all know I'm a fan of faux stitching as I often do it on my projects, so this time I thought I would add some real stitching as well.
I have used the Owl Always Love you download for all the elements on the card other than the sentiment. I have used a distressing tool around the edges of the card, paper and topper. I then got my mini sewing machine out to add the real stitching around the edges of the paper. As you can see it didn't want to play and sew so I ended up having to wind the machine by hand which has given a wonky line of stitching, but this kinda adds to the distressed look of the card. I then added the faux stitching around the topper with a white pen.
Good morning blog land, I hope everyone stays safe and dry during the remnants of hurricane Bertha today!
I'm her to share my latest DT make for the Premium Crafts Brands Challenge Blog. The challenge for this next two weeks is Bold and Bright.
I have made this canvas by firstly covering it all in white Gesso to give it a base. I then covered it with a light covering of the orange Pan Pastel. I then made my own circle mask my punching different sized circles into a piece of acetate. I then used Pan Pastels as a paint (mixed with a little water) and painted through the stencil. I then went around the edges of all the circles with a black Sharpie pen and added some white highlights with the white Gesso.
Good morning everyone. It's Digi Choosday today, and this week our challenge is "Shabby Chic" I love this challenge as it means I can get sanding and distressing which you all know I love to do, but this time I've kept it pretty as well. (Well, I think I have lol)
The image is from Emma Canning and is called 3 scoops. I love this image as I love ice cream! I can't seem to get enough of it lately lol
She is coloured with my Graph'It Markers. The papers are from the Rose Papers Download Bundle. I have used a distressing tool to rough the edges of everything and then used the Tea Dye Distress Ink around the edges. The rolled roses are from the same papers then ink and glittered.
The frame is from Sizzix and the ice cream sundae from Tattered Lace.
Good morning blogland. I'm here today with 3 makes but decided to do them all in one post rather than 3 separate ones.
So first up is my DT make for Polkadoodles, and this week it is a mid challenge reminder for the Clash Of Colours challenge. I am also using this card for my Premium Craft Brands challenge card. The challenge for this is Summer Fun
The DT were challenged to do some airbrushing with a drinking straw. Well this didn't work at all so one of my teamies came up with the idea of using the barrel of a biro pen. This did the trick so thank you Claire C! First of all I coloured the image up, which is from the new Work & Play Collection 6, as are the papers. Then I printed the image out again and fussy cut and created a mask to cover the image. Then I got to work with the biro case and created a muddy ground and a blue sky. I'm quite please with how the ground turned out as it looks like the horse is kicking up some mud!
Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. Here is my make for this weeks challenge at Digi Choosday which is "Lots Of Layers"
I have added 3 layers of paper which are all layered onto cardstock. I have layers the bunting die cut, the butterflies and the flowers.
The image is from Emma Canning and is called Crimbo Shopping, but obviously you can use it all year round. She is coloured with Graph'It Markers. The papers, butterflies and flowers are from the Cherryblossom Lane CD.
Hi I'm Anjie and married to a wonderful man called Dave. We have 3 cats, Smokey, Blue and Belle. Sadly I lost my beautiful Smokey on 19/03/13, but she will be forever in my heart. We know have a new furbaby Bonnie who came into our family on 12/08/13.
I started to make cards in 2005 while having a pretty bad relapse of my M.E. Pretty soon I was addicted to card making and also started scrapbooking.
