Crafting When We Can Challenges 83 - Clean and Simple

We had a great response to our last challenge and hopefully we will have the same response to our next challenge no. 83.

Our wonderful sponsor is Sherry from

Theme: Clean and Simple

For my card I used the image Snowman and Company.  This was such an easy image to use and I really enjoyed colouring it in and hopefully I managed to get my shading correct.  To keep it Clean and Simple I used my CraftArtist program to place a background on the card and then used the cutout studio to go around the image so I could place it on the background.  A sentiment was added using the styles in the program.  I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir pens and added a little glitter to the snowflakes.  For the inside I will print out an insert and stick it so it covers the back of the front cover so the pen bleed does not show.  It took me about 1/2 an hour to complete from start to finish and no sticky glue to get everywhere.  My kind of crafting.

Now it's your turn to show us your Clear and Simple projects.  Hop over to the CWWCC and link up your projects and leave some love for my lovely, talented teamies.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 82 - Use your markers

Another wonderful challenge over at CWWCC.  This Challenge is sponsored by
Sassy Studio Designs
The winner gets to choose 4 images of their choice from the store.

Theme - Use your markers

We were given images to play with and I got Sock Hop Sweetie Sassy.  I enjoyed colouring this image, it was easy to colour.  I went for a block colour and didn't do any shading.  The glitter card I got from Home Bargains and the music background was printed from Season of Giving digikit.  I used blue and pink Spectrum Noir pens and made an ombre background with the colours, then sprayed with CC gold sparkle.  Cut 2 circles with a spellbinder die and used some old peeloffs for the numbers.  I can't remember where I got the ribbon, I've had it for ages.  A corner rounder was used on the (can you guess) corners.
