Christmas Mix


I recently went to a fantastic weekend retreat with Sweet Poppy Stencils. I really enjoyed it.

This card is a result of the inspiring ideas from the fantastic Eileen Goodwin at that weekend. I love her work.


It's been done using Distress Oxide inks, gesso, Archival black ink, a white gell pen and Sweet Poppy Stencils. So much fun.

Cranes



It's new challenge time at Crafting with an Attitude. Our sponsor this month is Lemon Shortbread and this is one of their images called Japanese Cranes. 

The colour inspiration for this came from a painting I saw and really liked.



I coloured it with Polychromo pencils. I have layered the image using navy blue card. Then cut the edge decoration from some oriental blue leafy papers. I have added an oriental charm and coin to the top left corner. The corners on the image have been die cut and the sentiment is a peeloff one. 

I am quite pleased with the outcome.

Princess


Moonflower are the sponsors this time at the Colour Crazy craft challenge.
She is Gigi Princess.

The background has been done with stamping on one side and embossed and distressed on the other, with a ribbon down the centre.


The image has been water coloured with distress ink tea dye. Then some highlights added using distress pens. I've then just added some leaves, flowers and a sentiment to complete.

Super Moose


The sponsor this time at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge is Bugaboo 
and this is one of their images called Christmas Moose Ornaments.


I have coloured Mr Moose with Polychromo pencils and the ornaments have been done using Gossip glitter brush pens from Stamps by Me. They are lovely and glittery shame it doesn't show on the photo. The image has been die cut using the Clarity Stamp picot dies, then inked through the die to leave a white edge.

I've been back on my scrap box again and used up some more left overs. The embossed background has been coloured with distress inks.


The holly has been die cut and red gems for berries and lastly some gold ribbon for the bow.

It's time for a little inspiration for this months challenge at Crafting with an Attitude.

Our sponsor this month is Digi Doodle Studios and this is one of their images called

I have raided my leftover box for this and I am trying to do more using up left over card and paper. I put it in because its to big to throw away and then never use it, so trying very hard to use some.


I have coloured this little mouse with polychromo pencils.  The holly leaves have been punched out and gems added for berries.

Eyelash Queen



Better late than never, I'm so behind. But here is my card for the current challenge over at

The theme is Anything Goes so really easy to join in.


I've used a Pink Ink stamp Giraffe and I'm so envious of those eyelashes. I've coloured it with polychromo pencils. The leaves are also in the stamp set and I've cut some out and layered them on top to add dimension.

Then just a simple sentiment to complete. Really like this one.

Baby Boy Bunny



It's new challenge time at Crafting with an Attitude and the theme this month is Anything Goes.

The image I have used is a Crafters Companion Stamp.


I have coloured it using alcohol pens. I have die cut and embossed the background with a little ink in the folder to add a bit of light colour. Also the shading round the image has been added through the die so it gives a white edge.


I have added a little ribbon and a couple of cute shaped buttons to decorate. I made this for a work colleague who has just welcomed a lovely little boy to the family.
