Boy with trumpet

This is a card made with a free colouring image for a friend’s son.  The background is made with an embossig folder and the colour palatte was kept limited to reflect the boy’s school uniform.  It i slightly different tp the sketch as I mde the main image the second layer and not the top one.

Creative Moments DT Post – Lots of layers

Welcome to the next challenge at Creative Moments.

This fortnight, we are making projects with lots of layers.  Or generous sponsor, Eureka, give me this charming digi to work with – and it has been so cold that I don’t even feel that I’m making this card at the wrong time of year!  It is very detailed and therefore didn’t need much colouring and was mounted into a Christmas card using the sketch below.  The die-cuts used are cut from Mirri card using a Memory Box die.  Both the blue and cream backing card are from Kanban.

You’re a teenager

Here’s my Saturday night’s colouring effort.  I used a very limited palette based upon the picture to inspire below (although I am too late to enter the challenge).

The gorgeous digi is from Cuddlebug Cuties and was a freebie from the the very generous and talented Anna Stillwell.  I printed out the digi after typing in the sentiment.  The papers and embellishements come from a C & C vintage-style papercraft kit  and darkened the overall effect.

Grand-daughter – from The Hobby House

Well this is one of he nicest kits that I’ve bought from C & C in a long time.  The quality is fantastic and there is a sensibe amount of product – by that I mean that it’s not got so much in it that I’ll be bored before I’ve used it all!  Everything you see came from the kit apart from the ‘granddaughter’ label.  The corners of the square mat are shaped using a Fiskars paper punch.

Firstly I need to apologise as I this lovely digi was a freebie to enter a challenge some weeks ago…and then I ran out of time and didn’t get to enter it.  So at last I finished it and matted it up using card mats from Michael Powell.
