Crafty Catz Challenge #335 ~ Anything Goes (with a twist)

Good morning, well I have sheduled this post as I shall be on my way to London for a couple of days to help Ria move out of uni digs into a flat, along with help form my Mum & Dad. 

Anyway there is a fab new challenge over at Crafty Catz and the theme is Anything Goes with a twist for the DT that you can also play along with if you want to.  This week the twist has been set by our very own Aunty Sue and she wanted to see 'HATS' so hats in the background or an image wearing a hat.  We are sponsored this week by


PRIZE 2 IMAGES
And the DT were very generously given some wonderful images to play along with.  I have used an image from the Paris set.  The papers are from a pad 'One Man's Journey' which I got at the Range as the colours were quite muted I wanted to follow that through with the image and try and get a vintage feel to the card, so I did some tearing and inking.  The flowers have been die cut, heat embossed and finished off with some liquid pearls and the Ooh La La has been cut on the Cricut and finished off with an old button and some thread.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion #326 ~ ATG

The DT were very kindly given some images to play along with and I have used 'Circus Lion' coloured with SN and SN Sparkle. The background paper is from a glitter stack from The Range and I teamed it with some pale green cs which I used to mat the image and cut out the label and starburst.  The Sentiment on the front and inside the card are pc generated and are my take on the popular phrase 'Roar is dinosaur for I Love You'.

Gotta love a bitta Gus

I really do like the Stella and Gus images from Bugaboo and this one of Gus is no exception.  I have used Gus Bday Recount and coloured him with a mix of markers, some SN Sparkle and some 3d glaze on his glasses.  The background paper is glittered, the sentiment comes with the image and I finished off with some die cut balloons which  I also embossed.

Never too old ...

For birthday balloons!  Just thought I'd share a nice simple card I made for MIL's birthday and I won't divulge her age except to say older than 80 but younger than 90!  The card is die cut from Kraft using some new dies I got recently, then embossed with the banner folder.  Die cut some balloons and added SN Sparkle to the top one and raised each layer with foam pads for dimension.  Then added the sentiment to the inside of the card using another die cut.

A post at last!

Wow can't believe how long its been since I last posted!  Not been a lot going on craft wise but I'm back to share a card I made for a recent wedding and I used a fabulous KennyK image 'Happy Couple'.  I decided to go with a bit of a white on white theme with just a little colour added to the image.  Embossed background then a die cut heart doily, the image was die cut with a ticket die and then some heat embossed die cut flowers were added and finished off with some very pale pink gems and one flower was raised up with foam pads for a bit more texture.

Yellow

Today I'm sharing the first page in my art journal and I have used a beautiful image from Unky over at The East Wind.  She produced this image back in May and I have finally finished colouring it.  I challenged myself to use my SN pencils.  I had nearly finished it when the picture got creased and I couldn't bring myself to redo it so it sat here in my craft room just looking at me until I decided that by the time it was finished being coloured and then cut out the crease would no longer be visible and so I completed my colouring, I'm glad I did!

Unky gave the image away to those that requested it and all she asked for in return was that we share our completed image and raise peoples awareness about the Sewol Ferry Disaster that happened in April 2014 in South Korea, 304 people lost their lives and 250 of them were high school students on a school trip.  If you Google 'Sewol Ferry Disaster' you will find lots of information about it.  I don't recall hearing about it at the time and I have used the other page of my journal to write about it.



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will check out the Sewol Ferry Disaster.
