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

Creative Moments #156 World Hello Day


The theme for this fortnights challenge was world Hello Day and to use the word "Hello" somewhere on our card.
 
I had fun on the background of my card using Colour Blast shimmer powders, I was going for an orange background to match the little bit of orange under his vest, but am still pretty happy with the result
 
The image is from Dr Digis - https://www.doctor-digi.com/Digital-Stamp-Ambrose-Dunderton and I have coloured him using copic markers

My Besties International Challenge - I Love Winter

 
This beautiful girl is called Big Eye Big Head Dolls Digi My Besties" ‘I Love Winter” Img221 By Sherri Baldy. You can purchase her at http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p6404/INSTANT_DOWNLOAD_Digital_Digi_Stamps_Big_Eye_Big_Head_Dolls_Digi_My_Besties%22_%E2%80%98I_Love_Winter%E2%80%9D__Img221_By_Sherri_Baldy.html

I have used copic markers to colour her in. I wanted to play and see what pink hair would look like, I was quite impressed with the finished look - you will probably see pink hair again.
The background on the card is just literally using scraps I had in my craft room on a Kaiser Wine Cardstock card base. I used some medical gauze to soften the edges of the picture. And I've had these clear plastic diamond blings in my room for a while, am in love with them and am using them on everything! To give her the glassy eyes I used glossy accents.

Creative Moments - #150 - Music Theme

This fortnight I got to do 2 cards for this music themed challenge.
The first card was using an image from Dr Digis. The 2nd project was using an image from Scribbles
 

 
Oz Heart Broken Tinman
 
For the background on this one I cut the heart just using white cardstock, then used a very pretty floral/music themed stencil and some texture paste. Then painted over it with black gesso. I then used my Prima waxes to give it the metallic look
 
Both of my images were coloured in using copic markers which I purchased from The Scrapbook Superstore in Penrith NSW

My Besties - Magic Theme

Well this month's theme was magic. My previous card was easier being "the magic of Christmas". This one is a little more subtle. The glitter frame frame represents the mirror in Snow White. The colours of the card represent the good witch in The Wizard of Oz's dress, being the pale pink and sparkles

Get Creative Challenge Blog

This is my first project as a design team member for Get Creative Challenge Blog.
I was given this cute image from Dr Digis and the challenge was to make a tag

The background is created using a box board base cut to a tag shape. Using a stencil and crackle texture paste to form the pattern. Then once dry painted over with black gesso. Then gently over the top I have used Prima's Art Alchemy Antique Brilliance Amethyst Magic and Mystic Turquoise, Art Alchemy Opal Magic Vintage Silk, and Art Alchemy Mettalique Brushed Iron. The image is coloured using copic markers
#primamarketing #doctordigis #copicmarkers


This tag is done also using a Dr Digis image
It has Distress Oxides and stencils on the background, as well as some burlap and muslin to soften it a little
