DV #162 Use a Stamp or Digi

Good afternoon from a gorgeously sunny Hampshire!

Our challenge today, from Dream Valley, is to add a stamp or digi image to your project. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I have used one of their fabulous images, Springtime, for my card.

162 Use a Stamp or Digi

I coloured the image with copics, adding some small touches of glamour dust to the flowers, and also to the wings of the bees, which I stamped and diecut.

The background, and the patterned diecut, Sue Wilson’s Double Pierced Circles and Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles 1, surrounding the image I created myself with Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet Oxides. In order for the image to stand out from the background, as I used the same sheet and it was blending in to the background I added it on foam pads.

The final mat and corners are a turquoise mirri.

CCM #194 Under The Sea or At The Beach

We have been having a Summer break at Crafty Cardmakers, but we are back to day with a still summery themed challenge of either Under the Sea, or At The Beach.

194 Under The Sea or At The Beach2

I started with the background which I created on my A4 Gelli Plate, by brayering on some Fresco paint from Paper Artsy in three different ‘sea’ shades of blue. I used a Tim Holtz Texture tool to scrape through to give the impression of movement in the water, and also dabbed some cling film over it in a few places to add to the movement.

I stamped a few fish and bubbles, a seahorse and a rock for one of my mermaids to sit on, along with some seaweed.

My mermaids are from Hunkydory and I stamped them onto white card and coloured in their skin and hair, and then re-stamped their bra tops and tails onto shimmer paper, and paper pieced those over the top. One mermaid has a small gem for her necklace and the other has three in her hair.

I diecut lots of Sheena Douglas Floristry and Magnolia Seaweed dies in the same shimmer paper as the tails, but in twi different shades of blue/green. I also diecut several strips of a Marianne die that has lots of little fish on it, in three different shades of the shimmer paper, plus in a lovely frosty linen look paper and scattered them around.

Prills Close Up

The bottom of my sea is a combination of some glass round gems and prills. My Mermaids were added on foam pads to give dimension.

DV #161 Christmas Animals

It’s really chilly today, considering it’s Summer, so it’s appropriate that our challenge at Dream Valley is Christmas Animals.

We are sponsored by both Crafty Ribbons and also Di’s Digi Stamps.

DV 161 Christmas Animals

My image came free with a magazine and is by Adam Pescott, at least I think it is. I coloured it with copics. The turquoise mirri was in my stash as was the snowy background papers which I have been trying to use up for years! The tree diecuts are Doohickey dies from Magnolia.

No idea where the sentiment die comes from, nor the snowflakes. as I put them down after cutting and they upped and disappeared!.
