Rocking festive visitor


The theme for our fortnightly CCC challenge tomorrow (blogging a bit early because time could be limited tomorrow) is 'anything goes', so this was an opportunity to make up a rockin' snowglobe from a Hunkydory kit, this one being called 'festive visitor'.

As there is an acetate globe covering the decoupaged scene, it's one of those creations that is awkward to get a photo particular in the evening with a flash. Might try again in daylight in the morning.

There's not any actual crafting involved, but it was fun to make and will be something a bit different to try and sell when I have my 'at home' to raise money for Tearfund. There are eight in the kit, so another seven to be made up.


Photo taken outside - not sure this is any better:

Alice in Wonderland


I created this digital collage in response to Lunagirl Moonbeams 'Alice in Wonderland' challenge.

The background is one from Dezinaworld. I used the Art Freebies Art2clock image in the left hand corner, fading the edges to blend in with the background.

I used a round image of Alice with the Cheshire cat, distorting it digitally. I then added the text for the quote.

Caroling bunnies


This is for my CHNC challenge 139: cute. Please click on the link to see details of the challenge and, hopefully, join in - I'd love to see you there.

I've used the lovely cute 'caroling bunnies' digital image kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Eureka Stamps, colouring with promarkers and flexmarkers.

This is an 8 x 8 card. Background papers are from my Christmas offcuts box, stitched ribbons from Hobbycraft. It was only after I'd stuck them down that I realised that I could have used up some pieces rather than use two lengths of 8" - nevermind! The image is mounted on to a lilac mirror card before being mounted on to the label die cut. The sentiment panels were with some free magazine papers. I brushed the edges of the label shape and the image picture with dusty concord distress ink.
