Let's craft and create challenge 115


This is my design card for Let's craft and create 115: our four-legged friends - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our challenge.

I was asked to make this card for a friend to give to her mum - she said that she loved bright colours and animals, wild ones in particular, so I used this lovely 'fun in the jungle' digital image from Stitchy Bear's digi outlet, colouring with spectrum noir pens.  When printed, the image was cut out on my Scan n cut and mounted on to an offcut piece of red paper. I thought the offcut piece of spotted background paper gave a bit more brightness and I added a snippet strip of animalprint paper wrapped with the paw print grosgrain ribbon with some glitter strips on the sides. The little circles are mini shakers from Paperrchase. Although it's difficult to see the sentiment says 'Happy Birthday Mum' and the numerals are gold foiled.

More mixed media July challenge


This is my design canvas for More mixed media July challenge: anything goes + optional pastel colours.

I made the background of the canvas (about 12" x 16") with a mix of white gesso and various acrylic paints. The two corner pieces were left over form a card from a set bought long ago.

I used two That's Crafty stencils, randomly dabbing the top one with sparkle medium champagne and the bottom one with sparkle medium cinnamon. I inked the Just Rite cling Fleuriste Newsprint background stamp with versafine onyx black and stamped on to a piece of white tissue paper. I then wetted around it with a paintbrush to tear and adhered to the canvas with mod podge.

Flowers from Hobbycraft, the white ones touched with some of the cinnamon and champagne sparkle medium.
