Pirate Sam

It's time for a new challenge at Through the Craftroom Door which as usual is Anything Goes.  I've used Pirate Sam which is an image from Little Blue Button

I've coloured him using my Graph'it Markers, then layered him up using blue card and cork paper.

I have then just added a few embellishments to decorate him leaving the image to stand out. I think a lot of little boys would love him. Pop over to the challenge blog and see what my fellow DT members have done and join in please.

Good News

I have some good news to put on today. I have been asked to join the DT for Through the Craft Room Door and I was really pleased to say yes. I am really looking forward to spending the next 6 months working with such talented people. So here is my first card I have done for this weeks challenge 

The theme is always Anything Goes which gives you such a lot of scope of things to do.  This image is from one of the sponsors this week which is Twixie from That Craft Place. I know it's now a bit late for Halloween but it wasn't when I made it.

I have coloured him with Graph'it Markers and just added a little Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, although that is hard to see from the photo. I have die cut the wood BOO using an old Sizzix alphabet set. I think he is a real cute Kitty, not scary at all. Please pop over to the challenge and have a look at fellow DT member have made to inspire you.

It's a new challenge this today at the Graph'it markers challenge and the theme this time is

I decided to do something I don't do very often and that's a CAS card. So I've just done a splash of water, clean and simple.

I've coloured my splash with Graph'it pens 7140, 7210, 7220, 9100, blender and a little bit of white shaker pen. The sentiment was just done in a word doc.

Then I've just added a little colour with 2 shades of blue card. It makes a change to make a card quickly.

Pop over to the Graph'it blog and see what inspiration of fellow DT members have for you.

Background Alcohol

I'm sorry this post is a little late but I have had this lovely chesty cough bug that everybody is sharing and I have had a very rough week, so I am really late getting my cards done for the Graph'it Markers Challenge which this time round is Extra FX. So I have created backgrounds using my Graph'it Markers and then done something else to them.

One for the girls

and one for the boys.
I have done them both using similar techniques, but using different colours and patterns.

I have used a mixture of red, pink and yellow for the girls and blue, red, green and yellow for the boys. 

I have just taken the different colours and scribbled patches
over different surfaces. I have used gold and silver metal sheets and parchment paper. I have then taken the Graph'it blending solution and sprayed it onto a piece of felt. I have used that to blend the colours together by dabbing the various surfaces. By spraying the blending solution directly onto the inked surface you can get a mottled effect. I have then embossed with folders, die cut or punched the cards, flowers and layers out.

So you don't just have to colour images with your Graph'it pens, you can do other things too. 
Please pop over to the challenge page to see all the lovely ideas my fellow team members have to show you and have a go in the challenge too, you may win a lovely prize.
