Celebrate Your Day

I am so sad to see A Day For Daisies close but completely understand.    I found some images that I had printed out some time ago and used one of them to create this card.

The Best Decision

A couple of years ago, I created a bookmark:



The original post can be found here.

I didn't like the pale background but wanted to see what it would look like with mostly the same elements but a Distress Oxide background.  Here is how it turned out:

Crafty Sentiments - Add A Sentiment

For A Friend

Normally when I see a square sketch I more often than not change it to a rectangle.  This time I changed a rectangular sketch to a square sketch.  I had this image already printed out in my stash and the size of it wasn't going to work with the usual rectangle card that I create.

Canvas

This month's image at Limited Runs is a bit different from previous months.  In honour of that, I created something different to what I normally do:

I would like to enter:
Limited Runs - Progressive Challenge
https://limitedrunsstamps.blogspot.com/p/here-they-all-are-for-you-our.html

I have used a mini canvas.  I added some texture paste and neon glitter.  I then stencilled some modelling paste mixed with rust effect paste using a Tim Holtz stencil.  I sprinkled some minute glass beads on top of the modelling paste.  I also sponged some inks around the canvas (can't remember what I used now as I did that bit over a week ago). The image is from Limited Runs and is coloured with copic markers.  I tored the edges of the image and inked those.

Best Wishes

We had a chilly but sunny day today after starting out the day with heavy fog.  A good day for staying inside for a while crafting.  I got outside for a while in the middle of the day to get some sunshine on me though.  I rather liked this paper with purple flowers and blue leaves and decided to colour the image to match:

I also used a calendar template.  I embellished with some flowers and a butterfly from an embellishment pack.  I scattered a few small sparkly glitter dots among the flowers.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.

Yabba Dabba Doo

A card inspired by a movie.  I haven't actually seen this movie but had seen the TV series back when it was on (does that age me?).  This image really brings The Flintstones to mind:

Beach Walk

This is something I love to do when the weather is nice.  Early evening in summer is a lovely time for walks along the beach when the heat has gone out of the day but it is still light enough to see.  Unfortunately, I no longer live near the beach so I don't get to do this as much as I like.  I possibly appreciate it more though when I do get to walk along the beach.

I have used a paper from a beach themed paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I added some different ribbons across the card.  The image is from Sheepski Designs and is coloured with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.  I thought that the Wink of Stella gives more of a frothy look to the waves.

I followed the sketch at The Outlawz Wednesday Challenge.

A Birthday Wish

Creative Sketchy Girls - Shaped Card
http://creativesketchygirls.blogspot.com/2019/06/challenge-37.html

I have used a Nellie Snellen die to die-cut the hinged card.  I had a bit of fun trying to get the holes lined up when I joined the two pieces together but in the end I was pleased I used this particular die.  The image is a clear stamp that I received from a magazine which I stamped, heat embossed and then coloured over the top with a copic marker.  The sentiment is from Desert Diva and is coloured with copic markers. 

I have used all seven elements of the challenge:
Butterfly - stamped image
Heat Embossed - butterfly
Hexagon - basic card shape using die from Nellie Snellen
Hunter Green - around edge of card plus butterflies on sentiment
Hot Pink - butterfly and lettering on sentiment
Heliotrope - matting for sentiment
Hinged card - following tutorial at Butterfly Challenge

Thinking Of You

Dance like no one is watching....

I was inspired by the picture at Catch The Bug.  The kite image reminded me of a child running and dancing around trying to catch butterflies.


I have used a paper from a Japanese theme paper pack.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I added some Peelcraft border stickers on the top and bottom edge of the sentiment to give it more prominence.  The polka dot piece of paper is an offcut from another card - I think it is from a Kaisercraft paper pad.  I also added a butterfly embellishment and a flight trail made up of pearls.

This week at CHNC, our optional theme is Add a snowflake or snowflakes.


I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella.  Matting is silver cardstock.  I added some glitter foam snowflakes as embellishments.

I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches as inspiration.  I changed the black line across the image to a snowflake in the centre - and also changed the image shape from oval to square.  I think you can still see the basic sketch there though.

Thank You

I thought I had posted this one when I completed it but checked through my camera and I hadn't even photographed it.  I think that was probably feeling really bad with cold/flu that I have had for the past six weeks.  At the moment it is back to a head cold and hopefully will dry up in the next day or two.  Mind you I have been saying that for the past fortnight.

Happy Birthday

I am having trouble getting the link direct to the post at Catch The Bug.  I have tried going in through the Saturday tab on the left as well as by day from the Home button.  Nothing seems to give me the link so I have added the best link that I could manage below the challenge.
