A Year of ATCs? - Day 58

This is my 58th make for A year of ATCs?

A scrap of DP on dark red - then the image  Big Girl Bloomers from Bloobel.
I just couldn't resist this image!! I used Promarkers to add colour.
The final touch was a little hairdryer charm added with a little ribbon.

Then I had to add some googly eyes...

Happy Crafting!

A year of ATCs? - Day 57

This is my 57th make for A year of ATCs?

Today I have another image from Vera Lane - Corbett
I added colour with Zig real brush pens and then cut it out.
I then placed it on a black rectangle matted with birds on a wire paper - a freebie fromfrom Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.
Finally I added google eyes.

Happy Crafting!

Spotlighting Technique again

I have been using the Spotlighting Technique on various cards just recently.
This is when colour is added to just one part of the image.

I was looking through my stamps
 and turned up this beautiful collage stamp from Dark Room Door
and thought I would like to use it for this technique.

I started with a white card base matted with slate blue card.
I printed the image twice with black Versafine on white card, and cut one out with a nesting die, layering this onto the card.
I used a butterfly die to cut a section from the second image and hand cut a butterfly shaped piece of the blue card. 
I coloured the small section of the image with Zig real brush pens and then added a layer of glossy accents. I used a clear Wink of Stella pen for the feeler.
I then added these parts to the card.

I will link this to the Butterfly Challenge #73 Butterflies plus G for Glossy Accents and/or the colour Slate Blue.

Happy Crafting!

I {heart} Sketches with a tWist #163

I have just put together a card based on this sketch:

I have used some of the colour palette and the Child's Play aspect is the Snowman.

I started with a green card base matted with white. I added 4 banners cut from a scrap of DP in my stash and tied a snippet of ribbon  around them.

The image is from Flurry coloured with a Promarker and a clear Wink of Stella.
I cut this and the sentiment out with rectangular stitched dies.
The sentiment is a rubber stamp bought in Australia at the Melbourne Museum.

I will link this to
