Crafting When We Can Challenges 25 - Rainbows

I'm late for this Challenge as I came back from holiday and completely forgot about the challenge on Sunday.  As I'm not a very organised person I didn't do my card before I went away so I had to do it yesterday and wouldn't you know it, I couldn't find the glue, the printer was playing up, the light disappeared so no good for taking photos, you get the picture.  But eventually my idea came to fruition and I'm really pleased with it.

The sponsor for Challenge 25 is 

For my card I made the rainbow using CA then cut it out I attached another piece of card to the back and cut it into the same shape.  I then printed out an image from CJ Holifield who used to run Cowgirl Up Designs.  This is one of my favourite images and I can't place why but I just love it.  I used CA to decoupage it and coloured it in using Promarkers and Copics. 

Hop on over to the Challenge blog and leave your Rainbow creations with the blue froggy.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #24 - CASE it

Didn't know what CASE was until I read the post on the Challenge blog.  Apparently you take something you like from a card and make your own.  If you hop over to CWWCC you can see the proper definition.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is
They are offering the winner 3 images of their choice from The Stamping Boutique.

We were given given great images to use and I decided to make a side step card using Picket Fence.  First I printed the image and a sentiment onto the base card, then added the 2 side images which I cut from the main image.  It was then coloured with flexmarkers and organza ribbon (also coloured with flexmarkers) wrapped around the bottom.  The colours don't really show in the picture as I used a pearlised paper and then couldn't get a photo without it bleaching out.

Now all you have to do is hop over to the Challenge and show us you take on one of the DTs card.
