Challenge 97 - Favourite colour combo

For this challenge we have the fabulous 

The prize is 3 images from the store.

Theme:  Favourite colour combo

For my card I chose Dreaming of Spring.  I really love this image, the way Mi Ran have drawn her staring off into the distance.  I don't think I have a favourite colour combo but I seem to be drawn towards purple & green when I make my cards so this is the colour combo I chose.  I also included a blue to match the sky in my image.  The papers are from my stash, bought over the years.  I coloured the image with spectrum noir pencils. The butterfly was cut using a tonic die and the sentiment is from Crafters Companion.  The card background is from a digikit in CraftArtist.  Pearls from The Works.

I hope my card has given you some inspiration and if you want to leave your favourite colour combo project on the challenge you may be in with a chance of winning the fabulous prize.  Hop over and leave some love to my team mates.

Challenge 96 - Paper piecing

I'm just been finishing off outfits for the next production of High Green Musical Theatre Group, it's Little Shop of Horrors.  If you are in the Ecclesfield area of Sheffield next week come along and watch a fabulous show.

Blatant advertising over I have really enjoyed paper piecing.  It's the first time that I remember trying it.  To make it easy for myself I made my image big and Lucy has just the same expression my daughter had when I told her she would have to do some chores around the house when she is on holiday.  

She's made herself a star chart for when she does things so I've made her a basic chore chart using the wonderful image from our fabulous sponsor
Oddball Art Stamps

Prize:  3 images of choice from the store

I used CraftArtist to make a grid and filled it in with basic instructions.  I then printed it out after I put in the image to the size I wanted.  Once I had printed this I used material from several kits to print the images onto.  Spectrum noir pencils were used to colour the pieces I wasn't going to piece.  I used a paper for her hair, dungarees and scarf and shoes. 

Hop over the the CWWCC and see the wonderful projects our fabulous DT have created and while you are there leave us your awesome projects to look at and if you've followed the rules you may be in with a chance to win our wonderful prize.
