Crafty Girlz Challenges

This month at Crafty Girlz Challenges our sponsor is Stitchy Bears:

I have used the A Bird Among The Branches image for my card.

This is such a beautiful image, that I wanted it to be the feature of my card, so I have kept the card very simple.  The image had been coloured with Copic Markers.
Make sure you join us and share your creations with us at Crafty Girlz challenges this month.
Happy Stamping!

Sarah Jane has been coloured with Copic Markers.  The background papers are all retired Stampin’ Up! papers, and everything else are bits and pieces from my stash.

Dragonfly Dreams Challenge

A new challenge for you to join in with today, called Dragonfly Dreams Challenges.
Our sponsor for the month of June is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

I have used some new patterned papers in the background of my card, from the new Stampin’ Up! paper pack called Cherry On Top.  I  love the bright and cheery colours.

The image of the bear was pre-coloured, however I wanted a little more depth of colour and to make it look like he had fur, so I have coloured it with Copic Markers using a curly flick.  I just adore his gorgeous face! 🙂
A big thank you to Laurian and the rest of the team for inviting me to join the Dragonfly Dreams team.

Make sure you join us with your own projects.

Happy stamping!

Things With Wings Challenge

Things With Wings” is the theme for this fortnight’s challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, now that gives you heaps to play with!  Apart from the obvious: birds or butterflies, how about dragonflies, fairies, flies, wasps, or even planes.
I chose this gorgeous Daisy Elf image from Aurora Wings for my card for this week.  (Lots of winged fantasy options at Aurora Wings that you could choose from for your project!)

She has been coloured using Copic Markers, and the paper and ribbon are from my stash.
How about damselflies, bees, bats, moths, mosquitoes or dragons!!  Or use your imagination and come up with something really unusual 🙂
Most of all, have fun, and make sure you share you creation with us this week at Crafty Boots Challenges.

Happy stamping!

Crafting With An Attitude!!

Today is my very first as part of the Design Team at Crafting With An Attitude Challenges.  Don’t you just love that name? 🙂
Our sponsor for this month’s challenge is Sassy Studios Designs:

And here is my card, using the Masquerade Ball Sassy image.

MasqueradeBallSassy

I have coloured my Sassy lady using Copic Markers, before fussy cutting the image out with some paper snips.  The background image is the Grand Stairway from Make It Crafty, which has been very lightly coloured before Sassy lady was layered over the top using some dimensional tape.
Why not join us in April at Crafting With An Attitude, for your chance to win some gorgeous Sassy Studio Design images.
Happy stamping!

Creative Ladybirds Challenge 2

We have two wonderful sponsors this month for the Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge number 2, they are Oddball Art and Stitchy Bears.

My first card features a Duet image from Stitchy Bears, which is just so cute!

I kept the rest of the card simple so that the image is very much the focal point of the card, just using some music note papers from my stash.
And my second card features another gorgeous image, this sweet fairy with her dragonfly from Oddball Art.

Again, I have used some patterned papers from my stash in the background, coloured the image and then fussy cut it and layered it onto the card.
I do hope you will join in with our month challenge at Creative Ladybirds Creations, we love to see all of your wonderful projects.
Happy stamping!

Message In The Bottle

Another “Under Water” card today, for the challenge at The Male Room.
I like this challenge, this one had me thinking of all sorts of things to try out!  For my card today, I have used a Digital image from Make It Crafty, of a message in a bottle.

The image has been coloured using Copic markers, and then to make it look more like it was underwater, I have layered over the top, an Acetate Photo Filter Frame from the Project Life “Let’s Get Away” Accessory Pack. The photo filter adds that blue, green, yellow colour over the colouring and gives it a little more depth and interest.
Behind the main image, I have stamped some tiny fish and starfish (which are a little difficult to see in the photo), using the Stampin’ Up! Sea Street stamp set.

Happy stamping!
