Anything But A Card Challenge

A scrapbook page or Project Life page? A picture?  A covered notebook? Or in this case, some gift tags…..
This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to make a project, any project as long as it is not a card.  I feel that I piked out a bit on this one, since my gift tags are pretty close to a card, so I will have to come up with something very different for next week.

My tags use the lovely stamp set called Moon Lake.  Before stamping the image, I did a very light wash of watercolouring just using ink and an aqua brush, then stamped over it using Memento Black Ink.  The images have then been coloured using Copics Alcohol markers.
I have made a card to match the gift cards, which I will share with you tomorrow.
For more project ideas for this challenge, you can see what the rest of the Design Team have made this week by clicking here.
Happy stamping! And crafting…..

Colouring Inspiration

I have two projects to share with you today, both coloured using Blendabilities, and both using gorgeous Cute As A Button images.
Firstly, I have covered on of the large Stampin’ Up! Kraft Journals.

Jan Inspiration Project 2

The image has been coloured and then fussy cut, and then layered onto the black background so that the colours are really vibrant.  I have punched some stars out of the black layer and then added a layer of Gold Foil sheet behind the black.

I have also made a card. I just adore this “buttons girl”, and really enjoyed colouring her. 🙂

The strip of patterned paper comes from the new Stampin’ Up! Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack – lots of gorgeous papers!

Happy stamping!

Colouring with Blendabilities

Two posts in one day, what?????? 🙂
I know, however I just wanted to share some colouring that I have been doing today with my Stampin’ Up! Blendabilities.
I have been learning some new colouring techniques and today the lovely ladies at Kit and Clowder held a colour pallet competition, using this fabulous image from Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps.

I have used the Rich Razzleberry and Coastal Cabana Blendabilites, along with the Skin Tone Collection. The pearls in the corner have also been coloured with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities.

Hope you are having a crafty weekend.
Happy stamping!
