IAAS Do Something Digital


This challenge theme is to Do Something Digital and was set by Josephine. Please come over to International Art and Soul and join us.

My card blank is by Craft UK. I printed a sheet of  free digital paper from and matted it on to bright orange card from Papermill. This was the background for the digital image that I won a few weeks ago from Lacy Sunshine. I coloured the travelling hobos with my Promarkers and used the colours that were in the background paper. After colouring I tore round the image because a neat die cut wouldn't have looked right. lol I edged the torn image with a Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and centre it on the mat. I printed the sentiment on my computer and tore that out too, edging it with ink before adding to a scrap of torn digital paper, in the same colours but a different pattern to the background mat. I raised it on pads and set to the right of the image. The three 'gems' top left are from a set I bought in America a good few years ago and up till now had never used any of them. I'd bought them because I hadn't seen any brown ones at that time and because they were different textures I was drawn to them.

International Art and Soul - WOW

International Art and Soul have the theme of White on White for this current challenge so come along and join us and show us what you can do.

I'm afraid my mojo had gone walk about while I was on holiday and my card isn't the best. I really struggled to get this one made and usually I love this theme. My card blank is an 8x8 scalloped by Crafts UK. The white sheet was embossed with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder. The top border, bird, birdcage and  fancy shape top left were all cut with Spellbinder dies. I used white pearlescent card for the diecuts but unfortunately it's a different colour white and it offends my eye! The big dazzler in the centre of the fancy shape looks creamy yellow here but doesn't look quite so bad in real life. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything Goes with Dies/Punches
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
A Perfect Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
Love to Craft - Anything Goes
Digi Choosday - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes

Moving Along with the Times - Flowers

At Moving Along with the Times the theme this week is 'Flowers' and was chosen by Beckie. A good choice to start the New Year.

I won this digi a few weeks ago and it's by Lacy Sunshine. I had fun this morning colouring this little kitty and I finished the card in next to no time - I think my mojo is returning after being on holiday for a few weeks. lol

My card blank is a 7x7 by Crafts UK and the pink card is by Papermill. After colouring kitty with my Promarkers I used two Spellbinder dies to cut the image and the pink base. I centred her in the middle of the card and then used my Spellbinder dies again to cut four corners in pink. The only addition then was the sentiment which was a magazine freebie, stamped in Rangers pink and then cut with more Spellbinder dies. I raised the sentiment on pads and set it to the right of the image.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

2 Crafty Critters - Anything Goes with a Critter
A perfect time to craft - Anything Goes
Animal Friends - New beginning with an animal
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes
