An angelic challenge.

Hello all!
                 It's Friday again and time for another challenge from The Outlawz Colour DT.  Our theme this week is in recognition of "Be an Angel" day (22nd August), so we are asking you to create something picturing an angel.  You can use any colouring medium you choose but you must colour in a line drawn image as we are a Colour DT after all!!

       For the month of August, we welcome Bombshell Stamps back as our generous sponsor.  The prize is 1 digi set of the winner's choice from the Bombshell Stamps store. They have some fun and sassy vintage and retro designs so be sure to check it out!

                For my card I picked a cute little angel from Make it Crafty and coloured her using Copics.  I then fussy cut the image and placed her onto a pale blue, dotted background, adding a simple sentiment and a few gold stars.

         Entering this into the challenges at Copic Marker Europe,  Little Miss Muffet, Winter Wonderland, Addicted to Stamps and Bearly Mine.                                     

    Thanks for popping in!

Delight in the little things

Hello all!
             I'm back with my Friday card for the colouring challenge at The Outlawz.  Our theme is a colour/photo inspiration and you can use any colouring medium you like, as long as you have a line drawing that you are actually colouring - does that make sense?  How many times can you use the word 'colouring' in one paragraph, or 'coloring' for my friends across the Atlantic?
      So, probably best to move on and tell you that we are being sponsored this month by the fabulous Bombshell Stamps - they offer both rubber stamps and digital options so you could pick up a great prize by joining us.
          Another CAS card from me - no big surprise there!   My mojo seems to be stuck in CAS mode for now so I'm just going with it until the patterned paper and embellishment fairy comes by to visit!  I used a Whipper Snapper rubber stamp for this card, coloured with my Copics, mounted the image on some cardstock and added a stamped sentiment.

                       Entering this in the challenges at Crafty Little Fairies, Cute Card Thursday, Crafting for all Seasons and Inky Impressions.

                          Please come and join us at The Outlawz and check out the fantastic inspiration from the rest of the DT.  Thanks for popping by today!

Time Out CASE challenge

Hello all!
I hope the summer's not whizzing by too quickly for you - it sure feels that way for me at the minute!  I can't believe it's time for another challenge over at Time Out and this one is a CASE challenge.
         Our inspiration card is this one - from Anita so please do go and pay her blog a visit :)

   Another blog to visit is that of a our fantastic guest designer this week - Shona who has come up with a wonderful card for the challenge as have the rest of the Time Out DT !

               As I was CASE-ing the inspiration card, it's no surprise that my card is very CAS.  I used a rubber stamp with 2 different colour chalk inks, a computer printed sentiment of one of my favourite quotes, a paper flower and a few gems.

    Entering this into the challenges at Crafty Sentiments Designs , Fan-tastic Tuesday and Through the Craft Room Door.

                          Thanks for stopping by to take a look :)

Eat, drink and be merry in the great outdoors!

Hello all!
      Time for another Friday colouring challenge over at The Outlawz and our theme this week is 'Picnic/BBQ' - basically eating al fresco.  

    For the month of August, we welcome Bombshell Stamps back as our generous sponsor.  The prize is 1 digi set of the winner's choice from the Bombshell Stamps store. They have some fun and sassy vintage and retro designs so be sure to check it out!
    For my card this week, I used a Dude Time Doodles digi (not sure that they're still operating so please let me know if you are and I'll link up!).  I kept it CAS again as I do find it easier and just added a few scraps of paper and a Tom Holtz ticket.  I figured that Santa would have festive coloured beachwear so limited the colours to red and green.

     Entering this into the challenges at Fan-tastic Tuesday , Through the Craft Room Door , Crafty Girls , Delightful Challenges , Addicted to Stamps and Hambo Hoedown.

Thanks for stopping by - please check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team, (you can find their blog links on the DT page of my blog).

Celebrate with butterflies.

Hello all!
Time Out challenges has got another fabulous challenge up and running for you and this fortnight we're being sponsored by DT member Shery and the wonderful Stamplorations !


       Our theme for this challenge is "Celebrations" with the optional twist of adding butterflies and  the prizes on offer are  -  1 stamp set for the entry that has the twist (butterflies)
                    - 1 stamp set for the entry that has a STAMPlorations stamp (with or without the twist)

      What more do you need to get you to enter?  

    For my card I decided to create my own butterfly using a variety of heart stamps that I had in my stash.  When you put heart shapes on their side, they look like the wings of butterflies - well they do in my world anyway!  I had been crafting with my 2 nieces over the weekend and they were getting very messy with all my inks and were using more than 1 colour on a stamp.  When I saw how good it looked, I decided to try it out on this card so my inspiration came from a 6 year old and a 4 year old this week!
      I decided to fussy cut around the edge of the wings on one side just to make it stand out a bit more and simply added a stamped sentiment and some black gems for the body of the butterfly.

    Please excuse the poorly composed photos of recent posts but I have yet to make my lightbox and find a good window/light source to take my snaps.  My previous homemade lightbox didn't survive the shipping and I just haven't got around to making another one yet - I'll add it to the list of things to do!

        Entering this into the challenges at Through the Craftroom Door , Addicted to Stamps , Inky Impressions , Simon Says Stamp and Whimsy Stamps.

      Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July

Hello all,
it's the end of the month colouring challenge over at The Outlawz this week and that means an optional twist of making a Christmas card.  For the whole of this month we have been sponsored by All Dressed Up stamps, with a fabulous prize of 2 digis of the winner's choice so get those cards coming in!
      As we have now changed from just alcohol markers to any colouring medium, I decided to try using something different this week.  I have a few Distress Markers that I haven't really used much yet so I picked out a Christmas stamp by Stampendous and stamped it onto some watercolour paper.  I only have a few colours of the Distress Markers so when the image came out fairly muted, I decided to add a few touches of red to jazz it up a bit!

              I fussy cut the image and placed it on some vellum, adding a computer printed sentiment.  It's another very CAS style card and I'm sticking to my excuse of not having all my craft bits to hand yet!

                                  Entering this into the challenges at Aud SentimentsCreative Knockouts, Southern Girls, Crafting for all Seasons and Hambo Hoedown.   Please take some time to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the Outlawz DT - Carla, Penny and Kathi.
