CHNC challenge 196: make it colourful


Saturday has come round again with its usual speed, so it's time for CHNC challenge 196: make it colourful.

For this I've made two similar cards, using a Bugaboo image coloured with spectrum noir pens. Background papers and the torn pieces are from My Mind's Eye 12 days of Christmas paper pad.

 I made two cards so that I could enter them for Sarn's Rudolph Day

Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 48


This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 48: anything goes with a splash of red. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used Paper Pretties 'warm winter wishes' (kindly supplied by PP who are sponsoring), coloured with spectrum noir pens, having cut around the circular image with a scalloped edged nestie run through my cuttlebug. I think I went a bit overboard with the red considering that we were asked to use 'a splash of red', but, hey ho ... you don't have to include so much red if you don't want to.

The background paper is Echo Park 'very merry Christmas' with a Craftwork card sentiment circle.

Completely Christmas challenge 31


This is my design card for Completely Christmas 31, where 'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in the challenge.

I decided to use a large tag shaped card (I have a few of these that have been neglected for a long time). I had already identified a piece of paper I wanted to go behind my Sparkle n Sprinkle 'snow family' by Beccy Muir image (Sparkle n Sprinkle are sponsoring the challenge) ... and I found that even though the Forever Friends paper was 8 x 8 it wasn't quite long enough for the card blank, so I had to chop off the bottom and round the corners and some tricky cutting around the top of the card, which I then brushed with stormy sky distress ink, using this on the image panel as well.
