C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 423 – 6th of July – Sketch

Sketch 060717

This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. For my card I used an oval verses a circle and adjusted the sketch to fit a standard A2 card format. I used a digi from Delicious Doodles, called “On the Lookout”. I stop coloured it with my Copics. Next I cut it out using my oval Dienamics from MFT. I cut out some white embossed card stock and layered it according to the sketch.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 421 – 22nd of June – Animals

DTbadgeA couple of months back. I took a class with Heather Telford. She is on the Design Teams for both Penny Black and Darkroom Door. She showed us how to create beautiful and colourful backgrounds using Distress Ink Stains on watercolour paper. These are the cards I made at home. The stamp sets are from Darkroom Door - Background Stamp – Tribal and Rubber Stamp Set – African Trees.

I stamped the images first and let dry for five minutes. Next using a wide brush and plain water I wet the paper surface. Next using the same brush I blending various shades of yellow, orange and red. Once dry, I glued image to the card base and added a sentiment.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 420 – 15th of June – Christmas


I don’t use patterned papers as often as I should. For these two cards I found these great papers by Kaisercraft and just let the papers decide the appropriate images the add. I thought they both made a wonderful background for Tiddly Inks - WinterLight Wishes – Wryn | Digital Stamp. I often will stamp or print out numerous images and colour them at night while watching TV. In this case I used Copic markers. When I was going through my paper/card stock stash I thought the papers and image were perfect. I fussy cut out the little girl and bear and layered them on the paper. The sentiments were part of the same paper pack. I love the results.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 419 – 8th of June – Inspired by a Film


For this challenge I did a little twist, vs being inspired by a movie, I was inspired about going to the movies! I used an adorable little girl stamp by Lacy Sunshine Stamps called Rory’s Movie Snacks. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir Markers. I added glossy accents to her eye. I made two versions of the card to show that simple design layouts can change the feel of the card.movies1
