Lucinda ~ Simply B Stamps

Just wanted to pop on and share the project I made for the Progressive Challenge over at Simply B Stamps Fan Page.  This months image is the beautiful 'Lucinda' and the challenge was 'pastel goth' colour scheme, so black and at least one pastel colour but can be more.   
Image may contain: shoes and text

I decided to make an insert panel for the hessian bag I use to take my meals to work in.  I have coloured 'Lucinda' with copics, chameleons and SN pencils, papers are from Raspberry Road Designs 'My Baby Love Girl' kit which I then teamed up with black mat and die cut accents.  Sentiment is cut on the Cricut and I finished off with some flowers and Card Candi from my stash.  A great challenge and I love how she turned out.

Crafty Catz Challenge #357 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning, I hope you are all well, I have been dealing with a particularly irksome cold for over a week now and I just can't seem to shift it, hey ho that's the way it goes sometimes. Anyway you're not here to hear about my woes!  It's Friday so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and the theme is Anything Goes with our fabulous Caz setting the DT twist of 3 designer papers.  We have a wonderful sponsor this week too

PRIZE...3 IMAGES FROM SHOP

The DT were given some fab images to play along with.  I have used an image from our sponsor that I won a while back called SkyLynn. I have coloured her with chameleons and SN sparkles and then digitally paper pieced her kimono using a paper from Raspberry Road Designs kit called Asian Dreams.  I then used 2 more papers from the kit and digitally cut away some of the cream background then overlaid that paper over the the other paper and added some dropped shadow before printing out.  I matted the image onto some gold mirriboard then cut out a fan and birdcage from the mirriboard and finished off with a little die cut bird and peel off sentiment.

For my card I have used lots of die cuts done on the Cricut and I have gone with a WoW theme.  The card was for my parents who celebrated their Ruby anniversary a short time a go which is why I added the little red ribbon bow.  Layered the frame and heart using foam pads for some additional dimension.

A little inspiration

Over at Simply B Stamps the other day Betty very generously made available for a very limited time a fantastic image of Martin Luther King.  I couldn't resist then I started trawling the internet for some inspiration and came across lots of  black and white pictures and TV clips so I decided to make my project black and white.  This is a wall hanging and the background is an old newspaper print paper from Raspberry Road Designs to it I have added the image coloured with Chameleon pens and then inked around the edge, added 3 little black gems and them some black cs die cuts and I found an old fabric flower that I inked with some grey ink and attached the  flower to the hanging with a grey brad.
I would like to enter this wall hanging into the following challenges:
