sassy challenge

Time to enter a challenge I think.  The card I've made is using a fabulous Sassy Studio Design digi. Available from their store.

I'm entering into this challenge  the theme being 'back in black'.

I used an 8x8 card blank, black cardstock, Creata metallic card, Tonic die and  TatteredLace die.  The digi was coloured with pro-markers.  I then added ribbons, skull and chain, mini bottle full of a magic potion of course and hat pins and black dazzler x

The Stamping Chef

My first DT card for The Stamping Chef !!

I was over the moon to be asked to be part of the amazing design team that show Tamara's work. I hope you like the card I made and feel inspired to come and join in the blog challenge.

The digi image I chose is called 'Sirena' and is available from here.

At the moment there are lots of nautical craft sets about to use with this amazing image, lots of papers and dies from various places.

I started off with an 8x8 card blank and added cor'dinations card stock. I also used papers from the 'under the sea' paper pad from Joy crafts and embossed some of the 'whitewash' cor'dinations card stock, using a bubbles embossing folder, then sanded for definition.

Lots of die cut shells and sequin waste along with different shades of blue pearls were added as bubbles.
For the fantastic Sirena, she was coloured in pro-markers.

Don't forget to come and enter the 'anything goes' challenge.  Why not pop along and see what the rest of the Design Team have made.

I used just the 'dusty concord' distress ink by Tim Holtz and the stamps for the background are from Visible Image.

This has been entered into the following challenge

As I had fun playing with lots of stamps on the previous make I decided to copy the look with a few changes :)

All stamps used were from the fantastic Visible Image. I used Tim Holtz distress inks; shabby shutters and peeled paint.  Then used pro0markers of a similar tone to colour the main image.

I am entering this into Visible Images current blog challenge x

happy dance time

I'm sooooo very happy to have been asked to join The Stamping Chef design team, in fact I am grinning like a Cheshire cat.

I just had to celebrate with a card using one of their stunning images; Coffin' break

The amazing image was coloured with pro-markers, and gems were added to the coffin lining to give it some 'bling'.  I used dark green mirror card (Creata) and several stamps from Visible Image to create the backgrounds and sentiment. 

Then added a ribbon and chain with skulls (pssst an Asda bargain).

I hope you like it and that you will come over and check out The Stamping Chef challenge blog ;
