52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge – 52CCT37-19 – Sketch Challenge

Our fabulous 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge DT, Branka, has designed a great sketch to inspire this week’s card. I turned the card/sentiment to fit an A2 landscape format. The stamp is by Clearly Besotted, LET’S PRANCE. I coloured the image with Copics and Distressed Ink. I used a circle die and snowflake button.

Netta from the 52CCT Design Team is inviting us to try a new technique. I have provided some directions on how to do the technique above. I went in a slightly different direction. I used Distress Inks and sponged them on Neenah White Cardstock in various colours. Next, I stamped a bear, bucket of fish, and tree in Versamark ink and embossed in clear powder. Next, I  blended Versamark black ink over the cardstock. Finally, I wiped the ink off the embossed images with a paper towel. The bears are from MFT (My Favorite Things POLAR BEAR PALS), the trees (Clearly Besotted LET’S PRANCE) and sentiment by SSS.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 456 – 22nd of February – Alien/Fantasy

DTbadge

With all the cards I make, I have very little children cards. This week’s challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is Alien/ Fantasy is perfect for those “Make Believe” cards. I started with creating a space-themed card. Next, I thought -fantasy – unicorns, and flying elephants.

I started with painting a watercolour sky using Distress Ink Safty Ocean, water, and a waterbrush on watercolour paper. While that was drying, I cut out clouds from the Mama Elephant die set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. Next, I stamped my unicorns by MFT - BB Magical Unicorns, coloured them with Copic markers, added Wink of Stella to their horns, tail, and manes, and finally fussy cut them out. I assembled the card and added the sentiment also from the MFT Stamp set.

For my next card, I created the background using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET, Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi STARRY COLORS Set of 6, on watercolour paper. I set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped and coloured Mama Elephant’s – Space Bears with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and started assembling the card. I added hand drawn stars and air hoses for the space suits, and stamped my sentiments.

For my final card, I used another Mama Elephant stamp set called FLY WITH ME, the matching dies, and Mama Elephant dies set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. I coloured the critters with Copics. I arranged them on the card and stamped the balloons using a stamp set from Clearly Besotted ALL IN ONESIE Clear Stamp.
