Always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion

A new challenge has started at Craft Your Passion and this week we are sponsored by

Oddball Art

I went to Paperific - a papercraft show here in Melbourne on the weekend and learnt a few new ways to use my distress inks and stencils so here is what I came up with.

I created the background by inking the paper with 2 different coloured distress inks... I then lay the hexagon stencil over the top and sprayed it with water. Once dry I used black distress ink for the tree.I then coloured in Winnie from Oddball stamps with tria markers, and stuck her on with foam dots. I then added the buttons and sentiment. I really love the way it turned out.
I hope that you will join us this fortnight at Craft Your Passion.

Zoe Butterfly Gift tag!!

It is my turn to post on The Digi Bell's blog so for my creation this time I have made a gift tag using Zoe Butterfly.

I coloured Zoe (who was a freebie from one of Elisabeth Bell's newsletters) in with tria markers and added crystal effects to the balloons. I inked the tag with a brayer and added some shimmer spritz to it, then embossed it with the happy birthday. I then just added a few embellishments. I didn't think it needed too much else...  Don't forget that you still have a couple of days to join in with The Digi Bell's blog hop if  you haven't already and also the Elisabeth Bell's World challenge which has just started..

4 or more Design Papers at Elisabeth Bell's World!

A new challenge has started at Elisabeth Bell's World challenge and this month our challenge is for you to use 4 (or more) design papers on your creation. We are sponsored by

Polkadoodles Ltd

I used Grieving Cherub from Whiff of Joy for my card. I used papers from Kaszazz, punched out some flowers, added rhinestones and some pearls, the key and the button. I decided to leave the cherub uncoloured, although I don't think he stands out enough on the paper I stamped him on... I then just added some kindyglitz to his wings.
I hope that you will join us this month at Elisabeth Bell's World.. Remember that you can use any Elisabeth Bell image from any of the wonderful companies she designs for...

Always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion!!

OMG, I totally forgot about this post. I made this card so long ago that it totally slipped my mind... Better late than never hey....
So we are mid way through the challenge at Craft Your Passion and this week we are sponsored by

Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet

I made this CAS card using The Audition
I initially printed on the images onto the card stock then I reprinted the so that I could have them jumping off the page. I stuck them them on foam dots and added crystal effects to them so they really stood out.I then typed out the sentiment and just added the buttons... If the images were boys this card would have been perfect for my son...
I hope that you can join in our challenge if you haven't already.

Shine at Southern Girls Challenge!

Huge apology for this post being so late but I have been quite sick for the past 3 weeks and only now feeling a little better.
So a new challenge started at Southern Girls challenge and this fortnight the theme is shine.. so add that glitter and bring on the bling. We are sponsored by
Lemon Shortbread

Inky Impressions

I used Fairy Flowerscent from Lemon shortbread digistamps and coloured her in with tria markers and added kindyglitz to the wings and her dress. I found the purple sparkly paper in my stash which I think my son won at a craft show a few years ago so was perfect for the challenge. I then used some die cut flowers, added the ribbon and the butterflies...
We are nearly halfway through the challenge but still plenty of time to join in....
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
* Dragonfly Journeys - Purple Rain
* A gem of a Challenge - One for the Girls
* Fab n Funky - Things with Wings

Fairy Merrily!

It is my turn to post over on The Digi Bell's blog and I have made a card using Fairy Merrily from Elisabeth Bell's Digital collection.
I coloured Fairy Merrily in with tria markers and added kindyglitz to her wings so she sparkled. I used this stripy paper which I think is from Kaisercraft, added the big ribbon, the buttons and butterflies and then stamped and die cut the sentiment. 
That's it from me... 'Busy weekend ahead so I'm off to bed...
