Challenge #177 - 28 Feb - Things With Wings (Knight Owl - Sparkle N Sprinkle)

Good Morning everyone :)
It's been a funny old week and lots happening which has caused me to have to rethink things a bit. 

But on a more positive note it's challenge week again over at Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog and this weeks theme is:
'Things with Wings'

I was lucky enough this week to get a choice from the brilliant Sparkle & Sprinkle.

Here is the card I have made

Colours used for this one were:
Letraset Flex Markers:
CG02, CG03 & CG04
B29, B24, E39, E35, E37, E33, E29 & E11
Y17, Y06, YG06, YG03 & R29

Backings for the card are Kanban Crafts - Blue Gingham Card stock, and a Sky effect Card stock also from Kanban Crafts.
Finished with a Ribbon by Meiflower and the sentiment is a Stamp by Woodware Craft Colelction Available from Truly Inspired Crafts

This is such a fun image and the set that it comes with is brilliant as it has sentiments and an already coloured version of the owl for those not confident to colour it themselves.

For your chance to win some Sparkle n Sprinkle goodies then pop over to the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog and add your entry to the links.
Wishing you lots of luck and thanks for stopping by

Challenge # 176 Anything Goes week this week - Crafty Sentiments Image A gentle touch

Good Morning wow another week come and gone and it's been a busy one, I have launched my own Craft supplies business online Truly Inspired Crafts and it's been the school Half term holiday so rather manic here in my house :)

Now this week's challenge is 'Anything Goes' over at Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog which on these weeks is always super busy with all your amazing makes.

I was lucky enough to get an image by craftysentimentsdesigns and got one called 'A Gentle Touch'

Here is the image and information on how I did it.

Now I printed this image 3 times and tried a few different techniques but this is the one I went for, I wanted to something a bit different rather than just colour them in so I got the Fluffy Stuff out and added it on. This stuff is amazing as it a wet glue like texture when you apply it but when you add heat to it it turns fluffy and bumpy as you can see from the picture it works great for textured bears. Fluffy Stuff is available in White, Brown & green over at Truly Inspired Crafts.

Here is the finished card I designed using Crafty Sentiment Designs 'A gentle Touch' Image, 
Papers were from my left overs basket 
Ribbon is from Truly Inspired Crafts

I hope you can join in the 'Anything Goes' challenge week over at Glitter n Sparkle Blog and be in with a chance of winning some of our amazing sponsors images,
Lots of Crafty Hugs

This Week's Glitter n Sparkle Challenge is about Fireworks & Sparkle

Good Morning and welcome to my Design team sample for this weeks 

This week it's all bout 
Fireworks & Sparkle

This week the majority of the team were choosing from a new designer to me

The blog has great selection of images and samples for your inspiration and also there is an awesome Etsy Shop too. ( link is above direct to the etsy shop)

Here is the Image I chose, she is called Cheryl.

I have used a Scallop card blank by Kanban Crafts for the main card and very simply used black cardstock for the backing as this allowed me to stamp and emboss the fireworks in the back ground.

Close up of the great image which I have coloured using Promarkers and then glitter glue for the sparkle on the skirt.
Skin is Blush, Saffron & Pastel Pink
Hair is Cinnamon & Burnt Sienna
Bodice is Lipstick & Poppy Red

The fireworks are stamped and heat embossed for effect - The stamp is by Great Impressions

I made it into a Best Wishes card and would be great for Special 21st or 30th Birthday.

Now hopefully I have inspired now it's time for you to make your own creation using the Fireworks and Sparkle theme and add your link to the Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog for your chance to be in with winning some fabulous digital images from our Sponsors this week.

Happy Crafting and Good Luck
