TSC KittyPawVultura

At  The Stamping Chef  the challenge was to use
The Kitty Paw Vultura image, 
The recipe was: 1 ribbon, 2 buttons 3 pieces of background paper
When I first saw this I wasn't too sure of what colours to use,
 it is not the sort of image I tend to use, but I was determined to give it ago.
I coloured the image using the following colours:
Clothing: Purple Amethyst & Orchid,
Leaf green and  Lime green
Hair: Tan, Gold, Pastel yellow & Buttercup
Skin: Vanilla,  Almond and satin
Helmet: Black, cool grey 5 & 6
I then mounted the image onto a piece of purple paper.
The card itself is a sheet of matching purple card that had been embossed
with a  "tyre track" spellbinders embossing folder.
I cut out green and black paper
using the tonic elegant vine square.

I matted the green die cut onto the black die cut and added the image.
I then placed the word ribbon across the bottom, before adding the "topper" 
the final touch was the buttons.
I finished this one really late and was not able to find any
 other challenges to enter this into, but
I hope you like my creation and will stop by again soon

lacy sunshine @ christmas

For Through the purple haze Challenge

This weeks
  theme was Bingo using Lacy sunshine images

For the bingo element , we had to choose three items in a row, 
I choose bling (glitter) , die cuts and an stamped image.

My image was a of Lacy sunshine sat on a cup cake
At first  I wasn't sure what colours to use,  and so many of us crafters
start to make Christmas cards this time of year,
 so I decided to turn it into a Christmas card.  

I started off colouring in the image
So the I searched through my pro-markers to find some
red and greens for the dress and tights.
next I looked for  some browns
for the cupcake wrapper
and a yellow shade for her hair.
To bling it up and added some glitter on the fairy's wings
 and the cupcake topping.

For the poinsettia, I used a tonic die set (that included the card) ,
I shaped each leaf and glued together using pinflair glue

I then took a sheet of A4 white card and  embossed through
my ebosser using my holiday holly embossing folder
I then folded it in half to make the card base.

The image needed a mat to mount it on the card base,
so to compliment the green used on the image,
 I die cut a mat and a sentiment from dark green card
    Well that's one Christmas card done.... .

Chocolate Bars

A friend was asking about doing something different
for a children's party - for they to take home

I suggested she do something like this in the theme
of the party and then put a message on the back to
stick the wrapper together.


I took a wrapper off of one of the bars of chocolate,
I then  the used this as a template, and to judge the size I need to print it off
Then created the labels  including the image on my PC
I then printed them all off, cut them out and wrapped around the chocolate bars
If they are to be given away at a party
a message could be stuck on the back
I wish to enter this into the following challenges
and   Alys Crafty challenges (on facebook)  Anything but a Card

Scarlett Hunger

I started off with the full image, and coloured it in Purple and black.  
 I felt it was better framed,  so die cut various frames
 using my spellbinder dies
I then added a sheet of black and white paper to one side of the
front of an A5 card blank.
To finish it off I added a shoe die
Hope you like it

Crafty Sentiments...

The through the purple haze challenge
with  Crafty Sentiments

I have coloured "Kay - thinking of you image" with pro-markers
 (cyan, satin and oatmeal) 
This is the first time I have used pro-makers
 or coloured in an image come to that !!
  I die cut the coloured image out of the white paper with a scalloped circle
die, and cut a piece of turquoise paper using the next size up
  Then I used distress edges die to cut the rectangular mat,
and mounted both to a pale blue card base.
The silver dies are a  fanciful flourish  (Cheery Lynn),
 I cut two, one I put onto the rectangular mat
and  added a brown and blue paper flower with a white brad,
and used part of the second one to go with the white flower,
which I added a blue brad to.
The last thing was a ticket sentiment 
which was also coloured with cyan.
