Crimbo Crackers Challenge 141 - Pets

Welcome to a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is

Pets

I've used a no longer available Jellypark image, coloured with Promarkers and I've made a shaker card with seed beads and some fake snow that I bought for 10p from the Poundshop after Christmas.  And its quite a large bag too!


Ribbons are from my stash along with the snowflake charm and I've handwritten the Sizzix die cut tag.  The border is from Memory Box - Frostivlle wreath and I've pieced it together to make it large enough and then added half pearls to some of the snowflake centres.

Good luck with the challenge!

Weekend Walter

I made this card for a work colleague who was leaving us and fortunately has a great sense of humour!  Made using Weekend Walter from Dr Digi and coloured with Promarkers plus glossy accents on his glasses.

I've added him to the card with foam pads and the bunting is made from my own template and I've cut two stars using a little X Cut die and then added black card behind; the sentiment is handwritten.

Colour Crazy Challenge Week 35 - Di's Digis and Crafty Sentiments

This week over at the Colour Crazy challenge we have two wonderful sponsors who each gave the DT images to work with!  The challenge theme as always is:

Anything Goes

The first sponsor is Di's Digi's and I've used Jungle Shelf, coloured with Promarkers and added to the card with foam pads so it gives some depth.  I've added embroidery thread over the banner plus the three little bows.  The number one is a wooden die cut which I've added lots of glitter glue over the top (I primed it first by painting with white acrylic paint).  The ribbons are from my stash.


I'd like to enter the following:

The second sponsor is Crafty Sentiments and I used both images we were given.  The first one is called Relaxing and I've coloured her with Promarkers, used two different Spellbinder dies to cut her out and layer onto.  The sentiment has been handwritten and added to a Sizzix die tag.  The papers have been printed from a Funky Hand cd - now retired that I had in my stash.  Ribbon and half pearls also from my stash.

Crimbo Crackers Challenge 140 - Humour

It's time for a new Crimbo Crackers challenge and the theme for the fortnight is:

Humour

I've used No Snow Birdbrain from From The Heart Stamps and have coloured with Promarkers.  I'm not sure how long the store will remain open following Faith's passing at the end of July.


The sentiment comes with the image and all I've added is some black card for a layer plus faux stitching with a black fineliner pen.

Good luck with the challenge!
