Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 42: anything goes


This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 42 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used Lacy Sunshine's 'Daisy Sue', one of the flowerpot pretties, colouring with spectrum noirs. I torn round this using a perspex oval and brushed with spiced marmalade distress ink. Background paper is from Webster pages 'Western Romance and All about me' pad. The sentiment paper is an offcut and the trim top and bottom from a magazine freebie.

CCAYR July: non traditional Christmas colours


For my design cards for CCAYR July: 'non traditional Christmas colours' I've made three similar cards using offcuts of DCWV papers that I've had for ages, but I never tire of using because I love the colour combo. Please click on the challenge link to be inspired by the designs by the rest of the team - and we hope that you will join in the challenge.

The first two cards feature the stamped image create with the lovely Anna Griffin stamp simply inked with memento tuxedo black.



The third card is very similar to the one I made for my CHNC challenge 182 using  'Bethlehem with verse' by Eureka Stamps.

CHNC challenge extra for July


Can you believe that we are now nearer to Christmas 2014 than last Christmas - it just doesn't seem possible that it's July already, but it is ... and wise crafters are getting on with Christmas creations while this can be done at a leisurely paced compared to nearer the end of the year. I hope that you will be able to join in with your Christmas designs. So, please click on the link for CHNC challenge extra for July and get those Christmas crafting supplies out and link your entries. And please click on the challenge link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team.

For my design card I used Little penguin winter - winter bench, kindly supplied by the sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured this digitally, and matted on to torn ovals - papers from my offcuts box. The corner pieces were created with a Spellbinders die.
