Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 3 - All Dressed Up

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I've used Love To Bake and coloured the image with Promarkers.  I'm trying to use up papers I already have in my stash and this one is an old retired Funky Hand paper which I've added some half pearls and gems to the dots for extra sparkle.  Ribbons and charm are from my stash and I've stamped the sentiment.

Good luck with the challenge!

I Love Promarkers - Challenge 427 - Bugaboo

It's Wednesday so time for a new I ❤ Promarkers challenge!  The theme this fortnight is

Food

And we are sponsored by Bugaboo.  I've used You're One In A Melon digi and used Promarkers to colour.  I've kept it really clean and simple using a black fineliner pen to accent the edges of the card and image and layering the image onto some red card from my stash.  To finish off I've added a gingham red bow and a white button.


Good luck with the challenge!

It's time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge and the theme this week is

National Bagel Day / Round Aperture

I've made a cute Valentines card with a stamp set and although its not a bagel, its a donut which is not far off!! All the added elements are from my stash and I've coloured with Promarkers.

Colour Crazy Challenge - Week 2 - Polkadoodles

It's time for a new Colour Crazy Challenge and the theme as always is

Anything Goes

This week we are sponsored by Polkadoodles and the acrylic stamp I've used is no longer available, but I do like it!  I stamped it ages ago and its been languishing in my stash and as I'm determined to use up everything I have, here it is!  I've used Promarkers to colour plus some glitter glue and an old X Cut die for the shape.  Liquid pearls around the edge and I've cut the sentiment twice to give it some depth.


Good luck with the challenge!

Polkadoodle Challenge - Anything Goes or Happy Birthday

 It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and this week the theme is

Anything Goes

I've used one of the images from Winnie Celebrations 1 and used Promarkers to colour plus papers from Vintage Candy - I've used up the tiny bits from a previous project as hate to have any waste!  The sentiment is also from Winnie Celebrations 1 and I've layered it and the image onto some lilac card I found in my stash


Good luck with the challenge!

Mystic Mabel

All of my team had a lockdown Birthday in 2020 and the regular team quizzes we had were a rich source of inspiration for their cards.  Mystic Mabel has helped with this one where the controversial question was in relation to Walkers crisps changing the colour of their crisp packets........


Coloured with Promarkers plus papers from my stash and a hand written banner.

Daring CardMakers - January Inspirational Challenge

It's time for a new Daring Cardmakers challenge and the theme this week as it is the first Friday of the month, is and inspirational board - just pick at least 3 different elements to include in your creation (colour counts as one choice):



I've used a retired image by From The Heart Stamps which I printed off years ago and never got round to using it and as I'm really wanting (and needing!) to use what I have, this was the perfect image to use.  Papers, lace and twine are all from my stash and stuff that I've had for quite some time too.  I've used Promarkers to colour and then added some half pearls to finish.


I've used the following elements from the inspiration board:  cup, the rich colours, pattern on the lace, lettering and overall wintery feel.

Good luck with the challenge!

I Love Promarkers - Challenge 426 - Ikes Art

It's Wednesday so time for a new I ❤ Promarkers challenge!  The theme this fortnight is

Anything Goes

And we are sponsored by Ikes Art and I've used the cow from the Cumimals set and used Promarkers to colour.  A really quick and easy card to make - I've scored a border around the edges of the card, printed the sentiment on my computer and used a circle die to cut it out and then added bakers twine and a charm to finish!


Good luck with the challenge!

Keep Fit Kenneth

Still with the getting active theme, Keep Fit Kenneth from Dr Digi is trying his best!  I've coloured him with Promarkers and used some really old Funky Hand papers that I've had in my stash for a rather long time.  I also found some peel offs which I've used for the sentiment and the stars.

I'm on a mission this year to use up all the digi's I have already printed in my stash and to work through all the papers too - I'm quite appalled as to how much stuff I have and I need to use it!!  So there will be some creativity with little bitty pieces of paper!!
