Spring Challenge Reminder

A quick post today with a reminder about the Crafty Boots “Spring” Challenge.

My card features the beautiful stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue called Indescribable Gift.  It is a beautiful stamp for colouring, I think I might have to try it in some different colours too 🙂  The circle with the coloured image has been layered over some of the Irresistibly Yours Specialty papers from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  The photo hasn’t shown the background paper up very well, this is one card that is definitely better in real life than in the photo!!

Hoping you will share some of your spring projects with us, at Crafty Boots Challenges – we love to see what you have come up with.
Happy stamping!

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…..

Creative Ladybirds Creations Challenge 1

Exciting news today! Today is the very first challenge from a new challenge site called Creative Ladybirds Creations, and I am lucky enough to be on the Design Team with a bunch of lovely and talented ladies.

Our challenges are monthly, and will feature different Digital artist each month, and you can win some fabulous prizes from our sponsors, just by entering your own projects into the challenge.
Our first sponsor for this month is Bugaboo Stamps, and I have chosen an image called For You From Me Flower.

Our next sponsor is Lemon Shortbread, and this gorgeous girl is called Winter Gift.

And our third sponsor is Ike’s Art, with this beautiful image called Spanish Dancer.

Lots of purple in this post, I guess I was having a “purple” week or two here 🙂  So often you see the spanish dancers wearing red, so I thought it would be fun to do her wearing a different colour!!  In any case, it is a beautiful image and I loved colouring it.  Perhaps I will try it again, this time in red 🙂
Please come on over and play along with our brand new challenge, which goes until the end of the month – we would love for you to share your projects with us at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Happy stamping!
Chris
