Nicecrane Designs Vintage Santa Visit

Hey everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am to show you a project made with the gorgeous Vintage Christmas digi from Nicecrane Designs available here.
I started by colouring with Promarkers, I then used four different patterned papers from the Dovecraft Christmas Fancy papers I had from last years Christmas stash, and Card Candy in complimenting colours.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
I love Promarkers: Anything Goes
Creative Craft Challenges: Free for all
Everybody Art Challenge: Christmas
Shopping Our Stash: Christmas or Winter
Pollycraft Challenge: Christmas Fun

  5. Great card and that image is fabulous. Thanks for taking part at I ♥ Promarkers this week.

  6. I love this card. The children remind me of the 'Milly Molly Mandy' books I loved as a child.
    I was interested in your tutorial for colouring blond hair with promarkers. I use copics but I was always led to belive you should start with the lightest colour all over and then introduce the darker highlights and blend them in. You seem to do the opposite of this, so I shall have a go. Thanks for sharing your techniques. Kate x

  7. A lovely card. Such a great vintage style image. Thank you for joining us at Creative Craft.

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
