Toucan Fun


           Hi, This is my card for the latest challenge from Colour Crazy Craft Challenge,

Our sponsor is the Paper Shelter and this is one of their images called Tucan

I have used one of their images and he has been coloured with Tria Pens. All the layers have been cut using Spellbinder's Scalloped circle die. The top circle is flat, the middle one is raised a single layer and the image is raised a double layer.


I have punched the leaves out of patterned papers, then added a few paper flowers with brads in the center's. A piece of ribbon along the bottom and a rub on sentiment finish this card off.

I would also like to enter it in the following challenges:

New Baby

Colour Crazy Crafts have a new challenge starting today.

Our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments Designs and this is one of their images called Gaffe.

I just had to make a New Baby card with it, it's just so cute.

I've coloured him with copic pens and put some polychromo pencil colour over the top. As usual for me there are lots of layers in this card. I have also recycled the sentiment topper in the corner. I made that quite a while ago and it has just sat in a box waiting to be used and being as this card is intended for a little thing I though it fit in.

There is some floral ribbon across the middle, this again was a left over piece that just happened to fit, plus a lovely bow and the die cut words new baby.

summer panel

It's new challenge time over at Make My Monday. The theme this time has been chosen by me and it is Hint of Summer.

I wanted to use hot warm colours to represent summer.

So I used distress inks Worn Lipstick,Tumbled Glass, Fossilised Amber and Shabby Shutters to colour a marked of panel diagonally across my card base. When that was dry I stamped the Penny Black stamp Dreamy Flower in smokey grey archival ink so that the flower head sits in the coloured panel.

I then stamped it once in the bottom corner and embossed it in white.  Just a happy birthday sentiment to complete.

Paste It

It's time for a new challenge at Make my Monday and the theme this time is 
Wet/ Dry embossing.

I'm not sure if you would describe mine as wet or dry. It starts of wet and ends up dry because I've used Sweet Poppy gold embossing paste.

 The paste is used through a stencil called Koi Pond. I have then put glitter on while the paste is still wet, then just left it to dry.

I have then simply layered up this project on to black and gold card.  I love these stencils they are so detailed and so many lovely designs.
