Crafting musketeers February challenge: cute


This is my design card for the mid-month post for Crafting musketeers February challenge: cute. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the challenge here.

I used Cuddly Buddly's Karen Middleton's 'love mouse' image (coloured with spectrum noirs), Barbara Anne Williams 'bits of ivory' sentiment circle and various Cuddly Buddly digital papers, kindly supplied as sponsor of the Crafting musketeers challenge.The image was die cut using one of the Docrafts x-cut parenthesis dies, brushing softly with victorian velvet distress ink before removing from the die. This is a large A5 card. I added a few hearts from a pack from Hema.

The cheerful stamp pad challenge 105: B stands for bear


This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 105: B stands for bear. Please click on the link to see the lovely beary designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

I covered a piece of card randomly with red and yellow Pan Pastels and then brushed this lightly with a thin layer of white gesso. I then used a stencil with hearts, first using red Pan Pastel and then a thin smear of white gesso, gently wiping some of this so that the years became pink. I got the idea to use Pan Pastels and gesso in this way here. I printed out the digital image of Beary Dust Stamps 'ballerina bear' kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor, Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. I coloured this with spectrum noir pens. I added some small pink hearts on to the larger hearts dotting with liquid pearls gold, adding some also to the bear, the sentiment oval and the chipboard number 1 that had been coloured with a spectrum.

This is, of course, for a baby's first birthday.
