Wings Challenge

Afternoon everyone, well it is quite windy here in the UK and wet but that is a great excuse to stay in doors and do some crafting.
Todays make is for the Tidly Ink wings challenge. I used the Tidly Inks image of Wryn on a mushroom coloured in with my pro markers, then added it to an embossed die cut and added a bit of chalk to add to the effect. Matt and layered some paper, added a strip of paper that I border punched and to finish that off I added some lace and a charm. To complete the look I added flowers, sentiment and bling.
I hope you all like it?

Another Competition Entry

Good Afternoon everyone, well the snow is slowly melting away. Had a little look at some challenges and decided to enter my second Here come The Boys challenge.
This challenge is a bingo one, I decided to pick the four corners which are blue, patterened paper, buttons and an image.
I used a teddy bo image coloured in with my pro markers, some die cut stars in blue and some patterned paper by The Paper Shelter, added a sentiment and finished off with the buttons.

The Paper Shelter challenge

Well here is another card I have entered into a challenge. This time it is the turn of The Paper Shelter, the theme was blue winter. I used the Swalk image with the sentiment to match saying "a hug is the perfect gift... one size fits all and its easily returned". I coloured her in using pro markers. Matt it onto a die cut. The paper I used was by The Paper Shelter and I thought it really finished the card off. I added some hand rolled flowers and card candi to finish.

Here Come The Boys Challenge

What a productive day I have had craft wise, this is my third card today, and you guessed it for another challenge.
It is for Here Come The Boys, this time, I had a sketch to work from and went from there.
I used the great Teddy Bo image coloured in my pro markers, then added paper for the sketch part and added washi tape and finished off with a sentiment which reads With Love, (its hard to see because of the flash sorry) and card candi.

Teddy Bo Challenge

Good Morning everyone, well it is freezing here today so decided to stay in and do some crafting while the kids play and colour along with me.
Well my new years resolution is going well, that is both of them the first one was to loose weight and this last week I have lost 4 lb so that has gone well and the second one is to enter more challenges.
This will be my third challenge I have entered so all good.
This is for Teddy Bo, and I thought I would stretch myself a little and make a male card which I find alot harder that female.

I used my forever friends embossing folder of the boats to go with the fishing teddy bo, then found some paper with writing on, added a seniment by Lili of the Valley and to finish off I added some twine with a button and some card candi.
I hope your like it I am pretty proud of it, take a look at the Teddy Bo blog for more info on their blog hop and a chance to win a voucher for £20 to spend on digis.

Tidly Inks Challenge

Well one of my news years resolutions was to join in more challenges with my card making so here it goes.
As my little boy has started nursery 5 mornings a week, this morning I have had a chance to make up this card using the Tiddly Inks image, I think this image is super cute. I coloured her in with pro markers and I really struggled with the hair but watched a few tutorials on you tube and came up with this not bad compared to the last black hair I coloured, but we wont go there.
I used Lili of the valley sentiment stamp, card candi, cordinations card and some great corner decorations I got from a secret santa and they are fab.

Well I really enjoyed making this card, it is not my usual style as I tried to use a different style rather than everything co ordinating.

Alys Crafty Challenge DT Post

Well this is my first post since New Year so Happy New Year everyone, I hope you are all sticking to your New Years Resolutions?
Mine is the usual to loose weight and another one to pop in this year is to try and enter more blog challenges and challenges with my cards.
The theme this time for the challenge on Alys Crafty Challenge page on facebook https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/335678713185312/, was vintage, now I have to admit that I am not that great on Vintage, it is just not my thing, but as with most things I gave it a go so here is my DT post for the vintage challenge.

I used some brown card for the matt and layer and some vintage style paper for the mosaic effect, then added the bird stamped in Tim Holtz distressed ink, added the senitment and some card candi to finish.
