Crafting When We Can Challenges #11 - Valentine/Love

Once again all the entries were wonderful and I'm sure the DT member who has to choose the winner and top 3 will have a very difficult time.

This week we have been sponsored by the lovely Heather at 

The Winner will receive
3 images of their choice
from Fresh Brewed Designs

Heather gave us some images to use for this challenge but I really loved the previous image Heather gave us I've made 2 cards.

The card below was coloured with my Flex Markers and the mat was cut on my CraftRobo.  It was a design I made my self and I'm really pleased with it.  The plaque is a  Nellie die and the stamps I've had for years from QVC (a big wooden box of about 30 wood mounted stamps)

On this next card the lips are cut from my CraftRobo, so is the Dipped Strawberry. the design from FBD.  I took the image into the Robo software and made it into a cutting design (I hope this is OK with Heather).  I used some Anita's 3D clear gloss on the brown bit to make it look like shiny chocolate (but you can't see that on the picture) and I hand wrote the Mmmmmmm... (as if you couldn't tell). I also designed the fingers to hold the strawberry, as you can tell art really isn't my forte and the creases and fingernail could do with improving but for 11:30pm I don't think it looks bad.  I used Promarkers and Copics along with Tattered Rose DI.

Now all you have to do is hop over to the Challenge blog and enter your projects.

Due to unforseen circumstances the DT cards will be put on to the challenge page as and when they are received so there may only be a few when you visit.
