Scrapmatts - Dreamcatcher

Good morning all
Happy new year. I hope that you have all had a very merry Christmas and a safe and fun new year.
Very excited about this post - it's my first post as a design team member for Scrapmatts!!!!
If you haven't tried their chipboard and other amazing products, follow the link below for their website.
I have been wanting to try this altered Dream Catcher for a while, so when I got the Scrapmatts Dream Catcher chipboard I gave it a go. It turned out differently to what I had envisaged, but I am still happy with it. It hasn't photographed as well as I would have liked, but you can get the idea

To make the card I drew the colour inspiration from my altered dream catcher. There are layers of paper/cardstock, Scrapmatts stencils with white gesso, pearl flourish, tulle, art stones, flowers, lace, muslin, and of course the Scrapmatts chipboard feathers

The Scrapmatts products that I used are below and can be purchased at http://papertoleaustralia.com/:

Creative Moments Challenge #158 - Christmas

Well I am sad to say that this is my last challenge for Creative Moments. But I was grateful to be working with this gorgeous image from Bugaboo. I have left the card fairly simple as I really didn't think that she needed much embellishing.
Thank you to Alex and the Creative Moments Challenge team for having me as a part of the design team, I have had a lot of fun designing with images that I wouldn't normally pick for myself. You are a great team, and I hope that the challenge continues to grow and thrive and encourage the craftiness to continue to the next generations. 
I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

My Besties - 15th December 2018

Good morning all
I had so much fun doing this project, I got to combine a couple of my favourite products, My Besties image as well has Heartfelt Creations flowers
I decided against doing a traditional Christmas card for this one, and went with softer more pastel colours and doubled up a couple of vintage style frames
The name of this image is Magical Unicorn Winter A Gift For you. She can be found at:
The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations, and the range is called Buttons and Blooms:

Creative Moments #157 - Creepmas

This fortnights theme for the Creative Moments Challenge Blog - http://carabbiemomentsofcraft.blogspot.com/ was "Creepmas". Those who know me will know that this really isn't my style, but I will admit that I did have a bit of fun colouring an image that I wouldn't normally pick for myself. You can find him at https://www.zibbet.com/Rick1949
I have coloured him in using copic markers. The gate is from Heartfelt Creations - https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/. The title is from Scrapfx - http://www.scrapfx.com.au/store/.
I have used the Prima waxes on the gate and the title to give them some depth.

My Besties December 1 International Challenge

I had a lot of fun colouring in this beautiful image from My Besties for the December 1st 2018 international Challenge.
I tried to use bright but soft copic colours and accented both the girls and the unicorns eyes with glossy accents.
The background is done with a Darkroom Door stencil and Lindys Sprays.
The floral chipboard is from ScrapMatts, and the title from Dusty Attic
