Crafting When We Can Challenge #14 ~ One for the Boys

Once again we had a superb turnout for the challenge and once again the work was awesome, we have very talented entrants. 

For Challenge 14 our sponsor is the wonderful
I don't know what the prize is but I'm sure it will be awesome.

The card I have made is using an old Some Odd Girl image of hang 10 Cody, this image doesn't seem to be in the shop but there are loads of other fab images to choose from.

I made my card using Papermania 12 x 12 coloured card, cut in half to make a 6 x 6 base, the DPs are from DCWV Stack 6.  I coloured my image with Copics and Promarkers and highlighted the waves with a white inkssential pen and die cut with a Spellbinder label. I've shaded with DI and made the faux buttons with a round punch and the swirly border is a MS punch.  The faux stitching was made with a black fine liner pen.

Tiger, Tiger, burning bright...

I am entering this scrapbook page into the Paper Pretties challenge - Stripes.  I found this site while I was DT commenting and when I saw the theme I knew I had the perfect picture, it just took me an hour to find it on the computer.  I don't know which Tiger this is but the photo was taken at Banham Zoo ~ Norfolk in 2007, it's well worth a visit if you are in the area.  We went when we were camping at Kelling Heath.

As usual I used my Craft Artist program and the papers were from Creative Cottage, the frame is from the Carnival digikit from Daisy Trail.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #13 - Animals

This week over at Crafting When We Can Challenges the theme is Animals, any type of animal and any type of project.

Our wonderful Sponsor is
Hop over and see the wonderful images Tracey has on offer.

Below is my first try at a journal page, my Bestie, who is a big journal fan has been trying to explain to me the concept behind journalling.  I still don't really understand it or see the point of it, I don't like getting messy and putting layers of things, paint/paper over layers of other paint/paper just doesn't do it for me but having talked about it I thought I would give it a go. So here is my first journal page.  My daughter did a random number and the image below is the one that was picked, as soon as I saw it I knew the sort of thing I wanted to do with it.

I used various shades of DI to colour the page, I wanted to make it woody (I may go back and try and make the background look more bark like at a later date).  I then coloured 2 images so I could 3D some of the pieces.  I used Copics, Promarkers and DI as paint.  I thank used a gold marker, which didn't really show up so I highlighted the word Family with black and white markers and then wrote  & Friends and highlighted these too.
