Playing with my Pencils!

It's that time again, time to join in at Scribble and Scrap with their always, "Anything Goes", Challenge. With a chance to win £15-£20 of Scribble and Scrap Vouchers.
I used Vintage Beauty 4 for my card. I decided to try something different this time, I printed the image on to brown kraft card and coloured it in using Derwent Coloursoft pencils. I just love how you can use the pale colours so effectively!I haven't used them before and got much better results than with my polychromos!
I cut the frames mats and feathers on my Cameo and coloured the feathers with the pencils too.
I love the effect and will be messing about with pencils for a while I think!
Happy Crafting!

Guest DT Spot at Quirky Crafts :)

Hello, I am delighted to say that I was asked to be a Guest Designer at Quirky Crafts. The sponsor for the challenge is Stitchy Bears and they are offering three prizes of 3 digi stamps each. The theme is,

"As proud(and beautiful) as a  Peacock".

The image that I chose to work with is IkesArt Peacock
I decided to try and give the image a "Film Cell", feel. The image was printed by laser printer, foiled in black and coloured with Copics. I then reversed the image and set it in a frame cut on my Cameo. The feather and lettering were cut on the cameo, the feather coloured in Copics and the letters in vinyl.I thought the whole design was a little, "Art Nouveau", so I went for a font that I thought would match. I created a small folded spine which I attached to the front of a 6 x 6" card, and then attached the front of the card to that. This allows the light to shine through the acetate. 
I think it would make a lovely window decoration!
Happy Crafting,

A new "Anything Goes", challenge is starting over at Scribble and Scrap. For this challenge I used the totally lovelydotty papers from In the Pink Set-1.
My image is from Art by Miran , I coloured using Copics, cut the flowers and mats on my Cameo and rolled the flower using the papers from the set. I hot glued a ruffle to the back of the flower, and added gems too. I wanted to create a turned back effect so I cut two triangles to achieve this, and rolled back the paper!
Happy Crafting,

Today sees the start of another challenge over at Cards Galore Encore head over and see the great DT work and for your chance to win a fab prize sponsored by Blue Moon Creation.

I didn't get a chance to work with the Bluemoon images as I had samples to prepare for Stamp Addicts.
There are some stunning grunge stamps available to buy now and at the moment there is 20% off everything (except for magazines) online and instore with the discount code SPRING. This great offer is available until 5th May!
Here is one of my DT pieces. I created a frame on my Cameo and covered it with book pages, it was then inked with gelatos and distress pens. I created a mask for the large and smaller Grunge flowers and stamped them in stazon onto white card, over laying them.  Gelatos and Big Brush Pitt pens (both from faber Castell) were used to colour the flowers. The image was backed with black card and before sticking down, some of the flowers were pulled out  from behind the frame. 
Happy Crafting!
