Crafting When We Can Challenges 126 - Dies and Punches

Firstly we have some new DT members to welcome so hop over to CWWCC and leave them some love when you link up your project.

Our wonderful Sponsor for this challenge is Nikki from

We were able to choose an image pack and I chose 5 Swinging Monkeys.  It was a pleasure working with these images and I've had another idea that I want to try. 

I used the Crafter's Companion Big Score to create my card and coloured the images in with Spectrum Noir pens.  The papers are from my stash and the die cuts and punches are from Tonic.  I had add 2 pictures so you can see them images and the die cut/punched detail.

Now it's your turn to show us your creation using dies and punches.  Hop over and leave your projects with the linky at the bottom of the post.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #125 - Things with Wings

You still have until Saturday afternoon to enter our "Things with Wings" challenge over at CWWCC.

We were generously given an image to use and I chose Bubble Fairy.  The image was coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and CC sparkle pen for the highlights.  Card stock from my stash and the crystals are from a nail art kit.  The circle was cut using a Tonic Celtic layering die and the Celtic Dream collection.  The sentiment is from the Tonic Live the Life die set.  I've tried to shadow the words and corners but I'm never really happy about how shadowing turns out when I do it.  I think it's because I end up using the lighter colour at the back but I wanted a contrast to the colour of the mat and bubble.  Hey ho I suppose we all pull our creations to bits.

So far behind - catch up No.1 - Oddball Art Co

Due to Family, no mojo and life in general I've got so far behind with my DT work it isn't funny.  To try and make up for this I'm trying to use all the images I've generously been given by our Sponsors on Crafting When We Can Challenges.  For this post I am using an image from 

This image is called Big Eye Beetleguise Tribute.  I used a house image from a digikit called Spooktacular and a background from Fantasy Fairies.  I built the scene onto an A4 sheet and printed it out flat.  I then coloured the image with Spectrum Noir pens and cut around the top of the image and folded the page in half.  I printed a sentiment onto card and cut it out and stuck it onto the card.  It says 'Happy Birthday Ghoulfriend'.
