Let's craft and create challenge 109: layer it up


This is my design card for Let's craft and create challenge 109: layer it up - please click on the link to see the beautiful designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in the challenge.

I embossed a piece of Core'dinations card using an Embossalicious music embossing folder, sanding the embossing to reveal the core colour. The striped paper is an old piece of The English Paper Company Airy Fairy on to which I stamped one of my favourite Penny Black stamps inked with ColorBox purple and then heat embossed with clear detail powder. The two strips of washi tape were from The Works, the flowers from Poundland and a Hunkydory sentiment label.

More Mixed Media challenge: blue


I feel really privileged to be on the design team for More Mixed Media challenges, although I feel very inadequate for the task.

Well its finally here the start of this new challenge blog and our very 1st challenge for you is any shades of "Blue".

We would like to see some where on your project a shade of Blue for this challenge so it could be the main focal colour or just a hint of the colour some where on your creation.


We would love to see your mixed media work, project life spreads, digital layouts, scrap-booking, pocket letters, up-cycled projects etc. Even though we are a mixed media challenge we dont want to leave anyone out so you can enter with your traditional paper/card layouts so long as we can see the colour for each challenge.

This is my canvas for More Mixed Media challenge: blue, using Spectrum Noir Aqua tints inks and various stencils and stamps, as well as some Pebeo silver gilding wax and white opal liquid pearls. Stencils are Creative Expressions Birch Trees and Sheena Douglass Deer. Snowflake stamps are Inkadinkado

I was really out of my comfort zone doing this (and it shows in the result), but I'm still very glad to have this opportunity. I will try hard to produce something better for next months' More Mixed Media challenge.
