still christmas makes

Hello, my crafty friends. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. this week our sponsor is Hetty Clare.
The prize: 5 free images from the shop (the winner would have to contact sponsor by email).


I chose to work with an image called Postbox. I printed it on Sheena stamping card and coloured it with promarkers. I used Sakura glitter pens for the scarf and when I had finished colouring this I smudged it, hence the position of the sentiment.


I added glossy accents to the eyes, buttons and wellies. The patterned paper is from Sarah's Signature Winter Wonderland collection. I cut around the foliage thus creating a window behind which I placed the coloured image.
The sentiment was free with a magazine.


So now it is up to you to join us with your makes and remember that anything goes, hugs Theresa xx

happy new year 2019!

Happy New Year crafters! Today sees the start of another TTCRD anything goes challenge. We are sponsored by a company that I had never heard of but I must say that I enjoyed browsing their site. Now as this was before Christmas I chose tags to work with and printed on matte card it gave them a G45 feel.


The sponsor is Vectoria designs and I chose to work with Christmas tags. 


The prize for this week is the designs that the DT chose to work with. The other 2 products are here below:
 

I had planned to alter the tags somewhat but when I saw them I decided to leave them unaltered as they were great as seen. So I decorated a white paper bag with washi tape and created a Christmas tree, added a candy stick and some ribbon and voila' I had the gifts wrapped and embellished in no time.


So do pop over to the Etsy shop and browse and maybe also buy something.



And I will see you over at TTCRD with your makes, hugs Theresa xx

we three kings

Hello and welcome back to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week our sponsor is M.Medel Illustrations. The prize for this week is 3 digi images from the shop.


The images are fun and quirky but I must say that I enjoy colouring them in. I chose an image called The Three Wise Men. I used promarkers here and Sakura pens for the jewels and gold. I also used a white pen for the stars and a blender pen for the more faded ones.


The star of wonder is cut out of glitter card and is from a new Tim Holtz set. So now it's your turn to join us in the weekly challenge. Happy crafting, see you on the other side, Theresa xx.

fancy a brew?

Hello there my crafty friends and welcome to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week our sponsor is Pattie's creations.
She is offering 3 images from her shop as a prize.


I chose to work with a non-Christmassy image for a change and chose a vintage tea cup to work with. You can find this image here.


I printed it on Sheena stamping card and coloured it in using promarkers. I added gold foil around the rim of both cup and saucer using a toner tex pen.
I then die cut it with a  circle die and used Tim Holtz doilies die cuts underneath. I stamped the base card with Tim Holtz doilies using tumbled glass and broken china distress oxides. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Sheena Douglass.


And there you have my inspiration for this week. Please visit TTCRD for more inspiration from the team and happy crafting, Theresa xx.

Victorian Winter Princess

Hello my friends and welcome back to another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine and she is offering 3 digi stamps from her store to the lucky winner.


I chose to work with a cute image called  Victorian Winter Princess Melancoly Moppet. This is not the usual image that I tend to work with but it was fun colouring in and assembling this card. I used polychromos Faber Castell pencils this time and added some sparkle with a Sakura pen and dimension with opal white liquid pearls.
The sentiment and background dies are both by Sue Wilson. So I hope I managed to whet your appetite for joining us in this week's challenge. Remember anything goes, hugs Theresa xx.

Nativity

Hello there. I have managed to drop in for a quick post once again. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge. This week we are sponsored by Ike's Art.



I chose to work with an image called Nativity that you can find here under the Christmas section.
I coloured the image with spectrum noir illustrator pens and used a white gel pen for highlights and a clear sparkle pen.
The frame is from some cardstock. I went around the brown cut edge with a toner tex foil pen and once dry I used blue foil. I tried to keep the frame simple as the image is very busy.



So please come and join us over at TTCRD and remember that anything goes. See you on the other side, hugs, Theresa xx.

Joy to the world


I know it has been a long time since I last posted. Time seems to be running away from me. It is time for another TTCRD anything goes challenge and this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. The lucky winner will get a $12 voucher to the store!


The image taht I worked with is called Snowfriends and you can find it here.


I really enjoyed working with this little guy and coloured him in with spectrum noir illustrator pens. I added shimmer with Stickles glitter glue and foil. For some added dimension I used glossy accents and then finished off with a Tim Holtz stamp. So quick and easy.
And now it is over to you. Remember anything goes. see you on the other side, Theresa xx.
