Anything Goes at Incy Wincy Designs

That's right - the theme this week at Incy Wincy Designs is Anything Goes.  We are sponsored this week by Scribbles Designs.




I decided to create another canvas - this time one for the kitchen.  I used several food related digis from Scribbles Designs - Cupcake Tier, Layered Cake, Drink,  Pie Slice 1, Sundae 2 ,  Sundae and Burger .




I also used some Dylusions Ink to spray the canvas.  I added some faint mesh designs with some Distress Ink across the canvas.  I then inked some Magic Mesh with Distress Ink and added that randomly around the canvas.  I die-cut some Memory Box dies using pearlised paper and added these.  I would probably have added some food related ones if I had any!  I also dotted a few pearls around the canvas.

Happy Mother's Day

I love florals for Mothers Day cards.



I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
Feeling Sketchy - Sketch

Creative Ladybirds - Anything Goes
http://creativeladybirdscreations.blogspot.co.nz/2015/08/challenge-6.html

I have used a green card blank for this card.  The images on the front are from a set by Bugaboo Stamps.  I sized them so that they would fit neatly on the card following the sketch at Feeling Sketchy.  The sentiment is from Desert Diva.  I sprayed some flowers with Dylusions Ink and layered them together with a pearl for the centre.

Monochromatic Green

I thought this image lent itself to a monochromatic green colour scheme - and I found some green wood patterned paper to match.

http://eurekastamps.blogspot.co.nz/2015/08/eureka-challenge-155-button-button.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  Inspired by the random spots on the paper, I decided to add the buttons randomly.  The image is from Eureka Stamps and coloured with copic markers.  I matted with yellow pearlescent paper.

Whew - I made the cut-off on the Eureka Stamps challenge by 30 minutes.  Had planned to work on it early this morning but then ended up being called in to work at the last minute.  Had this idea in my head so really wanted to create this.  Glad I could!

Snowfriends::

We are midway through August and therefore midway through the current challenge at 12 Months of Christmas.  This month our theme is Snow People.  Although the theme is optional, the winners of the sponsor's prize are chosen from those who have followed the theme.  Those participants who submit two projects this month will earn themselves a Christmas paper.

This month our sponsor is The Stamping Boutique.

I worked with the lovely image called Snowfriends:


I also used two papers from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles - both are from the pack shown in this month's challenge posts.  I used a Spellbinders Label to die-cut the image and coloured the image with copic markers.  I die-cut a snowflake using another Spellbinders die and then embellished the snowflake and the card with pearls.

Clear It Out Challenge - Brown + Brown Embellishments
http://clearitoutchallenge.blogspot.ca/2015/08/challenge-time.html

I have used a Christmas themed background paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Di's Digis and has been coloured with copic markers and then die-cut with a Spellbinder die.  I cut the two pennants from offcut pieces of paper.  I also used one of these papers to die-cut some flowers using a poinsettia die from Mariannes.  I added some brown pearls to the centre of each of the poinsettia.

I have used a paper for the background from Rosie's Studio.  I think one of the other pieces is also from Rosie's Studio and the polka dot one may be from Kaisercraft - not entirely sure as they are from my offcuts box.  I coloured the image with copic markers and added some Stickles to the bows.  Matting is pink cardstock from Rosie's Studio.  I also added four clear heart shaped rhinestones to the patterened circle.

I have kept the card fairly CAS this time.
