Anything Goes at Polkadoodles

Good morning folks, it's an 'Anything Goes' theme over at Polkadoodles so I hope you're going to join in the fun to be in with the chance of winning a fab prize from the Polkadoodles store

The DT were challenged to make a card using hot colours, so I decided to have a play with my watercolour paints. I stamped the butterflies and flowers (from Bella Fleur and Belle Papillon stamp sets) using versamark ink and embossed with black EP.  I just love these stamps, they are so useful but soooo pretty! You can find links to them at the bottom of this post

I simply painted with red, rose and yellow paints and added some splatters here and there. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and doodled a border to finish off before laying on black card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart: Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments: Anything goes
Stamping Sensations: Anything goes
Sweet Stampin: doodling
Through the Craft Room Door: Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today

Anything goes at Colour Crazy Challenge

Good morning folks, it's time for a new challenge over at Colour Crazy Craft Challenge and it's a nice easy theme again .... Anything Goes. We've got a lovely prize from our sponsor Crafty Ribbons and you can use any medium you want to enter, as long as you include a hand coloured image.

I have to confess that I'm a bit of a ribbon addict and have loads of goodies from our lovely sponsor Crafty Ribbons. I've used some lovely pale blue organza ribbon on this card with  supercute image from the Polkadoodles Winnie Winterland collection and lots of Polkadoodles die cuts. The image was coloured with Lyra pencils and I added lots of glamour dust for a little frosty sparkle. I've used some of my favourite dies from Polkadoodles and added some little flowers from one of the Design Sheets from Winnie Winterland.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Christmas at Sweet Stampin: anything goes for Christmas
Incy Wincy: no words
Lemon Shortbread: Anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

Hanging Flowers from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, Monday already so I'm heading off to work but before I go I just wanted to share a card featuring Hanging Flowers, one of the beautiful new stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

I stamped the focal image onto some white stamping card with black Versafine ink and then stamped twice more on some scraps of stamping card so that I could decoupage some of the flowers. I coloured the images with watercolour pencils, using a damp brush to blend the colour. I coloured around the image with watercolour paint using lots of water to create a muted effect.I stamped the foliage using Take it or Leaf it with a little distress ink. I splashed a little blue and green watercolour paint here and there and added a blue bow and a sparkly dazzler to finish the card off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Friends: Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy: Favourite Colour (blue flowers)
Simply Create Too: flowers
Southern Girls: Add some stamping
Sweet Stampin: Flowers

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

Anything Creative/Mixed Media goes at We Love to Create

Good morning my lovelies, it's been another busy week at work so I'm enjoying a lazy weekend with a wee bit of crafting thrown in. My project today is for our 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' challenge over at We Love 2 Create. As always we have some lovely crafty goodies just waiting for our lucky winner thanks to our generous sponsor Premium Craft Brands and you don't have to use our products to play along!

 I'd been looking through some old Craft Stamper mags for some inspiration and found a few techniques that inspired this tag. Seth Apter had created a gorgeous crackled background using Tinting base and acrylics so I had a go using my Pans and Tinting base.

I kind of thought my tag looked a bit like an old shed door so I added some grungeboard hinges, a key (again coloured with PanPastels). I stamped some Paper Artsy numbers here and there and added a shink plastic sign to my door, again using a Paper Artsy stamp. I added some grass to the bottom and some dotty flowers with white and yellow pens.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

A Perfect Time to Craft: anything goes
Artistic Stampers: Anything goes
Country View Crafts: blues and greens
Creative Artiste: Anything mixed media

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
